Rochester, MI – The Michigan PGA Section kicked off its tournament season in dramatic fashion as it took one extra hole to decide the winner of the the Club Car Spring Scramble presented by Caesars Sportsbook on Monday at The Wyndgate in Rochester.
On the first playoff hole Dan Urban from Gull Lake Country Club holed out from 158 yards to secure the walk off victory for his team consisting of Jeff Caminiti from Maple Hills Golf Course, Patrick Wilkes-Krier from the Kendall Academy and Michael Prior from Gull Lake Country Club.
Joining them in the playoff and finishing runner up was the team of Austin Deiters from Midland Golf HQ , Scott Hebert from Traverse City Golf & CC and two amateurs from the Midland area – Jagger Richard and Riley Olsen. Both teams finished the day with great rounds of -17 under par – 55 in tough, wet conditions !
Four teams tied for 3rd place at -14 under including the defending champions – Matt Zavadil from Oakland University Golf & Learning and his amateur partners Chad Johnson, Brad Bastion and Austin Krieger.
A full field of 36 teams participated in this opening event and we would like to thank our host site The Wyndgate for providing such a great venue. The golf course was in very nice shape despite the later start to the year and all the recent rain.
We would also like to thank out title sponsor Club Car and specifically team from Midwest Golf & Turf. This was the 31st consecutive year that they have been the sponsor of this event. We appreciate their continued support of this event and the Michigan PGA Section.
We would also like to thank a new partner this year and presenting sponsor of this event – Caesars Sportsbook. The team from Caesars was on hand yesterday interacting with the participants with some special promotions and activations for their mobile app.
This was the first victory for the team of Urban, Prior, Wilkes – Krier and Caminiti in this event and certainly one that they will remember!
