Kurmel / Ellis win the Adidas State Pro Am

Harbor Springs, MI - On Tuesday at Boyne Highlands it was the team from East Lansing that got it rolling as professional Chad Kurmel from Michigan State’s Forest Akers Golf Facility and his amateur partner Dan Ellis, Assistant Golf Coach for the Spartans Men’s and Women’s teams combined for their first Adidas State Pro Am title.

This event that typically always takes place the first week in June was rescheduled this year due to Covid and modified a bit with all 72 teams playing the Ross Course on Monday and the Moor Course on Tuesday at Boyne Highlands. Using the Moor was a change this year as the event is always played on the Heather Course and then rotates between the Hills and the Ross every other year.

It was this second round on The Moor where Chad and Dan emerged from the crowded leaderboard shooting a (-9) under par round of 63 giving them a 129 (-15 under) total and a 4 shot victory. Kurmel said that Tuesday was the first time he has played the Moor and seems to play his best golf the first time he plays a course. That was certainly the case on Tuesday as he helped Dan combine for 9 birdies and no bogeys.

After the first round on the Ross there were 15 teams within 3 shots of the leaders. Professional from Red Run Golf Club Cody Haughton and his amateur partner Wade Johnston and professional Garrick Hunger from Great Oaks Country Club and his amateur partner Joey Falk, both teams shoot 65 ( -7 under). This gave them a 1 shot lead heading into the final round over 4 teams including Chad and Dan.

The father son team and defending champions Gary Smithson from Yamaha Golf Cars Plus and Brad Smithson made a nice run to get within 1 shot of the leaders at one point on the back nine but could not keep pace with Kurmel and Ellis and finished in second place, 4 shots back. Also finishing in second place at a 133 (-11) total was the team of professional John Seltzer from the Seltzer Golf School and his amateur partner Ryan Mouw.

Congratulations to professional Kyle Martin from the Lochmoor Club on his Hole in One on Tuesday on #17 of the Moor. This was also the only skin of the tournament as he picks up $2600 for his team with this great shot.

When we knew the event was not going to happen in June it was the team at Boyne Highlands that stepped up and helped make the event happen this week. The golf courses were in great tournament condition and the staff always does a tremendous job hosting this event. Boyne has always been a great partner of the Michigan PGA and we really appreciate their cooperative effort to make this event a success this year !

We would also like to thank Adidas for their continued support and sponsorship of this event, especially during these difficult times. Each participant received tee gifts courtesy of Adidas that they were able to pick out online set up with a virtual store that was created for this event.

After Round 1 of the Adidas State Pro Am at Boyne Highlands we have two teams tied at the top of the leader-board. Professional from Red Run Golf Club Cody Haughton and his amateur partner Wade Johnston and professional Garrick Hunger from Great Oaks Country Club and his amateur partner Joey Falk both recorded rounds of 65 (-7 ) on the Ross Course in this best ball format on Monday. With 15 teams all within 3 shots of the lead it should be exciting heading into the final round on The Moor Tuesday.

Scott Hebert wins the Senior PGA Professional Championship

The top playing Michigan Senior PGA Professionals were back in Northern Michigan this week, except at a new venue. Hidden River Golf & Casting Club in Brutus ,MI played host to the Michigan Senior PGA Championship this week with 74 Michigan PGA Professionals teeing it up on Monday and Tuesday to compete for the Michigan Senior PGA Championship Title as well as 9 qualifying spots for the 32nd Senior PGA Professional National Championship on October 15 - 18 at PGA Golf Club - Wannamaker / Ryder Courses. This event was previously held at Birchwood Farms Golf & Country Club in Harbor Springs the past seven years.
Heading into the final round of the tournament there were ten players within five shots of the lead, all chasing the first-round leader Scott Hebert from Traverse City Golf & Country Club. Scott birdied the final 3 holes on Monday to finish at (-3) ,69 ,good enough for a 2 shot lead heading into the final round.
Scott continued his steady play into Tuesday and followed up his 69 with a (-1) under par round of 71 for a 140 total (-4) , good enough for a 3 shot victory and his first Michigan Senior PGA Championship title. Coming in second with a 143 total was Lee Houtteman from Leland Country Club.
Joining Scott Hebert and representing the Michigan Section at the Senior PGA Professional National Championship will be Lee Houtteman, Ron Beurmann from the Country Club of Jackson, Jim Deiters from Midland Country Club, Joe Pollack from Yamaha Golf Cars Plus, Bob Ackerman from the Bob Ackerman Golf Academy, Jeff Rachar from Forest Lake Country Club, Kevin Muir from The Wyndgate, Brian Cairns from Fox Hills Learning Center and Al Kuhn from the Fountains Golf & Banquet Center. Al secured the last spot in a 4 person playoff that lasted 3 holes.
In the super senior 70 and older division, it ended in a tie at the top with Michigan Golf Hall of Fame members Randy Erskine and Lynn Janson both finishing at a two round total of 149.
We would really like to thank our host site this year Hidden River Golf & Casting Club. The facility was able to step up and host the event on short notice and they provided a great venue for this championship. The golf course was in really good condition and is a beautiful Northern Michigan setting.
We would also like to thank Doug Dingwall for his generous support of this event and the Michigan PGA Senior organization. Thank you to our national sponsors John Deere, the PGA Tour, and the Golf Channel.
