Michigan PGA

Come next May 25-30 the Michigan PGA Section will be well represented at the Senior PGA Championship at Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

The 32nd Senior PGA Professional Championship wrapped up yesterday at PGA Golf Club in Port St Lucie, Fla and at the end of the day we had four Michigan PGA Professionals qualify by finishing in the top 35.

Defending champion Scott Hebert made a great run final charge making six birdies on holes #5-#13 to get within 4 shots of the lead but could not catch Omar Uresti and finished in second place. Uresti, a 51 year old PGA Life Member from Austin, Texas, matched the under par scoring record at -18 under par and joins the company of Scott Hebert, Bob Sowards and Steve Schneiter as the only players to win both the PGA Professional Championship and the Senior PGA Professional Championship.

Finishing tied for 28th and joining Scott in Tulsa next May are Jeff Roth from the BOYNE Academy and Jim Deiters from Midland Country Club. Both players finished at 289 total of 2 over par.

It took a playoff of 6 players for the last three spots, but Ron Beurmann from the Country Club of Jackson was able to survive the playoff and pick up the last spot and will join Hebert, Roth and Deiters and advance to the 2021 Senior PGA Championship !

The Michigan PGA is proud to announce that Stephanie Jennings, PGA, is the first female officer elected to the Michigan PGA Board of Directors!

Jennings will serve as the Section’s Secretary and is currently the Head Women’s Golf Coach at Eastern Michigan University. In her spare time, she works with a good friend and assists a PGA Jr. League team out of Bay Pointe Golf Club in West Bloomfield, MI.

We caught up with Stephanie and asked her, "As the first female officer, what influence do you feel you may have on other females to run for the Board of Directors going forward?

Jennings replied, "I am friends with a few of the female members in our Section. However, my goal is to build rapport with more of our female members and associates and to encourage them to get involved in some capacity. Whether it's volunteering at an event, serving on a committee, or running for a Board position, I feel that you receive a more complete experience with your Section when you give a little of your time."

"I feel that my diverse background and work experience brings a different perspective to our Board. From working for a national women's golf association to building and executing player development programs for three public facilities, I've been fortunate to gain very valuable experience that I feel will aid in the decision-making process with my fellow Board members."

GAM Tops PGA in 48th Fuller Cup Matches at Cascade Hills CC

GRAND RAPIDS – The Golf Association of Michigan (GAM) team started hot on a cool morning winning five of the six four-ball matches and rolled on through singles in the afternoon to win the 48th Fuller Cup Matches 13-5 Thursday at Cascade Hills Country Club.
Last year’s GAM Player of the Year Dan Ellis of East Lansing, Austin Kreger of Harrison Township, Bradley Smithson of Grand Rapids, Steve Nichols of East Lansing, James Piot of Canton and Grant Haefner of Bloomfield Hills each helped account for two points for the GAM by helping their partners win in four-ball and by winning their singles matches.
Top amateur golfers representing the GAM and top PGA professionals representing the Michigan Section of the PGA squared off in a Ryder Cup-like format with six four-ball matches and 12 singles matches. The annual competition was originally scheduled for May 5, but rescheduled due to pandemic restrictions. Linksoul was the clothing sponsor outfitting both teams.
Fox Hills Learning Center professional Brian Cairns, a Michigan Golf Hall of Fame member, and his partner Josh Fryer of Franklin Hills were the only PGA duo to win in the morning four-ball matches.
Dan Urban of Gull Lake Country Club started the afternoon singles for the PGA with a 1-up win over Michael Coriasso of White Lake, but the GAM team won four and tied two of the next five matches for five points to secure the victory.
The GAM team won for the third consecutive year and seventh time in the last 11 years but trails the PGA 34-12-2 in the series that started in 1971.
The format has changed over the years, but the matches are presented to promote sportsmanship, friendship and quality golf among professionals and amateurs. The matches are named for the late Ernest Fuller, a Michigan golf course developer. The GAM team is selected through the use of the GAM Honor Roll and availability and the PGA selects its team via money list standing and availability.
Cascade Hills Country Club, which in 2021 will host the 110th Michigan Amateur Championship as part of its centennial year, hosted the Fuller Cup Matches for the first time.
Representing the GAM were Cascade Hills member Chip Anderson of Grand Rapids, Brad Bastion of Shelby Township, Coriasso, Ellis, Nick Gunthorpe of East Lansing, Haefner, Kreger, Nichols, Piot, Smithson, Anthony Sorentino of Rochester Hills, and Andrew Walker of Battle Creek.
Representing the PGA were Cairns, Fryer, Joe Hatch of US Golf Cars Inc., Cody Haughton of Red Run Golf Club, Lee Houtteman of Glen Arbor, Adrian Jolliffe, the host head professional from Cascade Hills Country Club, Frank McAuliffe of Meadowbrook Country Club, Tim Pearce of Birmingham Country Club, Jeff Roth of Boyne Highlands Resort, Adam Schumacher of Point O’Woods Golf & Country Club, Urban and Kyle Wittenbach, golf coach at Ferris State University.

Tim Pearce, Brett Hudson, Alex Chapman, Michael Coriasso roll to victory at the Ace Indoor Golf Fall Pro Scratch

Ann Arbor, MI - “ It was just one of those days where everything was going in for us “ Tim Pearce, Assistant PGA Professional at Birmingham Country Club said after their round as Tim and his amateur partners Brett Hudson, Alex Chapman and Michael Coriasso shot a -16 under par round of 128 in this scratch 2 best ball of 4 format, good enough for a one shot victory.

The Michigan PGA Section wrapped up its full field events for 2020 with the Ace Indoor Golf Fall Pro Scratch on Monday at Travis Pointe Country Club. 26 teams competed in what turned out to be a beautiful fall day. The golf course was in really good shape with smooth greens that gave way to some low scores.

The team from Birmingham Country Club got off to a hot start going -8 under par on their first eight holes. They kept it going in what proved to be a great team effort and a lot of made putts to finish at 128.

This was good enough for a one shot victory over the team of PGA Professional Brian Cairns from the Fox Hills Learning Center and his amateur partners James Piot, Eric Spencer and Ian Smith.

This was the second year in a row that Tim Pearce and Brett Hudson have won this event as they won last year at Plum Hollow Country Club with PGA Professional Don Devantier and Tommy Lucko.

We would like to thank our sponsor of the event this year – Ace Indoor Golf. Joe Neumeyer and Jordan Young were onsite to talk with the players and show them all the exciting things happening with Ace Indoor Golf and the world of golf simulators.

We would also like to thank our host site Travis Pointe Country Club. All of their staff from the golf course maintenance, golf professionals and golf shop staff to the food and beverage dept did a great job putting on this event.

K-MARTIN SPECIAL: Lochmoor’s Kyle Martin Wins Michigan PGA Match Play Championship at Country Club of Lansing

LANSING – When Lochmoor Club head professional Kyle Martin finds time to practice his golf game, he most often chips and putts instead of heading to the practice tee.
“It can obviously save you and I proved that today,” Martin said after winning the Michigan PGA Match Play Championship Wednesday at Country Club of Lansing.
He had to fight off five-time champion Brian Cairns of Fox Hills Golf & Learning Center in the afternoon championship match, 1-up, and won the Match Play title for the second time. His first Michigan Section major championship win was in the 2015 Match Play at Eagle Eye Golf Club in Bath.
“My driver wasn’t the greatest in the final match, but my short game kept me in there,” Martin said. “Then I made some birdies on the back nine and that got me through.”
Martin, 36 and a Grand Rapids native in his first year as head pro at Lochmoor in Grosse Pointe Woods after serving several years as an assistant, turned back Scott Cook, the 30-year-old general manager at The Golf Club at Thornapple Pointe in Grand Rapids, 3 and 2, in the morning semifinal round.
Cairns, 56, a Michigan Golf Hall of Fame member and a finalist eight times in the Match Play Championship, knocked off defending champion, fellow Hall of Famer and 17-time section major championship winner Scott Hebert, the director of golf at Traverse City Golf & Country Club, 3 and 1, in the other semifinal.
“To get this one is great,” Martin said after accepting the $3,200 first-place check. “It was really nice to get the monkey off my back and to get another win. It is the match play, but it’s a major and now I want to get one of the stroke play ones for sure, too.”
Martin never trailed in the final match and even led 2-up after winning the par 5 No. 6 and par 3 No. 7 holes with chip-and-putt par saves.
Cairns jumped back into the match and evened things up by the turn. He won No. 8 with a 35-foot birdie putt, and No. 9 with a par when Martin couldn’t get up and down from a greenside bunker.
Martin went up again with a two-putt birdie on the 616-yard par 5 No. 12 hole, which he reached in two shots, and then Cairns tied the match at the par 5 15th with a conceded birdie after Martin had tree troubles off the tee.
The final lead for Martin came at No. 16, a short par 4 where he hit his approach shot from the right rough to three feet for birdie. The duo traded pars on No. 17 and traded birdies on No. 18. Cairns hit it to within one foot for a conceded birdie on his final approach shot, and Martin made the six-footer for his final birdie to tie the hole and seal the win.
“I made birdies to get the lead early against Scott this morning, and then made some good par saves, and then against Brian I made the saves early and the birdies later,” he said. “It was great playing against Brian. He cracks me up with some of his antics, but I’ve always looked up to him and (Scott Hebert) and it was a pleasure to play against Brian. He isn’t easy to beat. We joke that he can get up and down from a garbage can, and he can, so he’s ever out of it by any means. It’s a treat to beat him.”
Cairns joked that beating long-time rival Hebert in the semifinal made his week, and then offered that Martin has expanded his game in recent years.
“K-Mart has a great short game, and he’s added a nice fade out there, too,” he said. “It’s great to see he keeps working on his game and is taking it to the next level. I don’t mind losing to a guy like him, it was a beautiful day and the golf course was just spectacular. The greens were perfect. I have no excuses. Kyle beat me. He’s a true gentleman and a good player.”
