Nicholas Repeat as Match Play Champ
July 15, 2018 Van Buren Twp
Defending Champ
Mike Nicholas brought the trophy to the Match Play Championship Saturday morning and took it back home Sunday night.  He had a tough road to defend his title on Saturday with both matches going to the 18th hole, getting successive 1 Up wins over Jeff Pasz and Tom W Litlzer. On Sunday Mike's conditioning regimen beat the heat as well as Tour Money leader Chuck Withey in the Semi Final 3&2, and then upset minded 10th seed Jeff Graunke in the final 5&4. Graunke may have been worn down by his semi-final win over Helen Puffenberger who was marching toward a final of the last two year's champs until Graunke pulled the upset. Puffenberger did secure 3rd in the consolation match 2&1 over Withey. In other matches of note, Kevin Gregoire took down Corey McCue in the round 1 marquis match of Tour bombers. Graunke had to go 19 holes to get to Sunday by beating 2015 champ Mike "how did he get 8 stokes" Prieskorn. And in a match no one thought could be won, Brian Lardin beat Bill Gordon in the losers bracket battle of the win-less. For Nicholas this is his 4th career Tour win and 3rd Major Title in 41 starts. He is now T-10 in Tour Major victories, tied with Chris Cooley and Tour founder Erik Meland.

July 7, 2018 Livonia
Graunke Comes from behind
Jeff Graunke had 3 eagles and 3 birdies in his round at Fox Creek to come from 4 shots and 10 places back to win the Quad-Tour Challenge.

Rookie Nic Duff took third at 12 under and 3rd Round Co-Leader Charlie Roy finished 4th at 11 under par.  Graunke opened with a birdie on #9 (his first hole of the shotgun start) and then shot 31 on the back nine to charge thru the pack. The win is his 2nd on Tour in 42 starts.  Roy and David Hansen took the on course prizes and Corey McCue qualified for the Central Division Skins Game.

Wilsey Gets Star Spangled Sweep
July 1, 2018 West Bloomfield
Wilsey on a hot streak
Scott Wilsey continued his strong play with a third win in two weeks at the inaugural Red White & Blue.  Scott birdied the final two holes to finish at a 6 under par 66 and pull away from 2nd place finishers Helen Puffenberger and Dan Gubachy who tied at 3 under par.  Rookie Darren Covell and Jeff Graunke tied for 4th. Wilsey's score set the standard for this unique new event on Tour which honors our country's independence and features players rotating thru the tee distances of Red White and Blue.  The win is Scott's 5th on Tour in 57 starts and he becomes the first player to gain 3 wins this season. His weekend sweep is the 2nd this season, preceded by John Raymond on opening weekend. Rich Dunmore accomplished the feat last year. The event marks Covell's first top-4 finish of his career.


Wilsey Uses 2 for 2nd at Two (Stick)
June 30, 2018 Carleton
Wilsey wins 2
Scott Wilsey got his 2nd win of the season and proved once again that Tour pros really don't need all those clubs. At the Two Stick Classic Wilsey conquered the Thorne Hills course in a record score of 67 (5 under par) and matching his winning score to par from two weeks ago when he used all 14 clubs!  Willi Hesse also matched the old score to par event record with a 2nd place 3 under par 69. Rookies Roger Smith and Bob Delorey tied vet Mike Prieskorn for 3rd, with both getting the first top-4 finish of their young careers.  Wilsey closed with 2 birdies in his last 3 holes to shoot a back nine 32 and hold off all the challengers who also finished strong.

Lardin Solves the Mystery of the Lakes
June 24, 2018 Taylor
Lardin wins big
With a performance reminiscent of a certain Tiger in another past major, Brian Lardin solved the Lakes of Taylor course like no one else could and dominated the Harbour Pointe Open on Sunday. Opening the day with a 4 shot lead from the first round, and with chasers eager to run him down, Lardin crushed any thoughts of a collapse with a chip-in eagle on the 2nd hole and a front nine 30.  With jibes of "why don't you just ride in the cart the last three holes", Lardin closed out a 2 under par, record setting 14 shot margin of victory over playing partners Chuck Withey and Ned Loving who tied for second at 12 over par. The fourth in the final group, Tim Markel, finished 4th at 13 over, in what was a battle down to the final putts for 2nd place. Kevin Gregoire and Helen Puffenberger played notably well and moved up 5 places from day 1 to tie for 5th. Chuck Withey's 2nd place puts him within striking distance of the single season money record with 2 months to play. Lardin's victory margin tops the previous Tour record of 13 shots set by Thom Bales in 2010, also at Lakes of Taylor. Also notable is that Lardin's win comes just in time to replace his previous HPO win in 2016 in the World Rankings and keep him at #5 in the world. The win is Lardin's 2nd Major and 4th Tour win in only 32 starts.

* Withdrew from Day 2

The former winners of the HPO dominated the top finishing spots on Day 1 at Lakes of Taylor. Lakes being an operative word as repeated rain showers made for a soggy slow track and felt like it played to 7000 yards. Brian Lardin finished strong on both 9's to take the lead into day 2, with all 7 of his birdies coming in the last four holes of each side. As the saying goes, Tim Markel came home in an ambulance to surrender the lead, but remains in striking distance for day 2 in 2nd place. Ned Loving posted a strong back nine (holes 1-9 on the card) at 1 under par to hold 3rd place, and Chuck Withey also closed the back nine in 1 over par to take the final spot in the final group on Sunday. Scott Wilsey collected 2 on course prizes and took home fewest putts as well, and Kevin Gregoire took the other on course prize. 


Wilsey the Best of the Old Guys
June 17, 2018  Brighton, MI
Wilsey wins 3rd
For the 2nd time this weekend a tournament was decided with a ace on the 3rd playoff hole. This time Scott Wilsey clanked home an ace to edge Joe Robar in the Senior Open. Both finished regulation play at 5 under par 66. Both competitors wheeled around the front 9 in 31 and limped home with birdies to get to the playoff. John Raymond nursed his back to a 4 under par 3rd place and Jeff Graunke took his Metamucil and held on for a 3 under par 4th place. The win is Scott's 3rd in 54 starts on Tour. Bill Gordon took his meds and both on course prizes including the first invitation to the All-Star Skins Game.

Oliver Finishes Strong to Seize the Grail
June 16, 2018  Plymouth, MI
Oliver wins 3rd
Dave Oliver finished with an eagle and 2 birdies in his final 5 holes to post a Tour season low 62 (7 under par) and pull past Mike Prieskorn (2 under par 67) to ride off with the Holy Grail. Rookie Tyler Floyd broke onto the money list with a 3rd place 1 under par. Barb Hoelzle finished 4th at Even par. Oliver captures his 3rd career win in 52 starts. Two on course prizes also went to Oliver and Justin Bennett shot a great round and captured the West Skins Game invitation. Mike Prieskorn notched his 20th second place and 50th top-4 finish on Tour and Keven Gregoire played his 50th Tour event.

Martin Returns to the Winner's Circle at Par 54
June 15, 2018 Plymouth, MI
Martin Wins Again
David Martin sank an ace on the 3rd playoff hole to edge out fellow veteran (Not So) Old Tom Litzler and return to the winner's circle after a 7 year drought. Martin's 19th win on tour in his 173rd start leaves him 5th in all-time wins and 4th in top-4 finishes for his career. He got his first win since the 2011 Fox Hunt and 2nd win in the Par 54 with first coming 12 years ago in 2006, when he also won by playoff against another tour vet and that year's defending champ Barb Hoelzle. Hoelzle went on the win the event 2 more times in 2008 and 2016. Martin and Litzler's Even par performance topped the 2 over par players Mike Prieskorn, Tom Hoelzle, and Helen Puffenberger.  On course prizes went to Martin, Litzler, Scott Wilsey and Chuck Withey. Martin came back twice to get the win, catching Litzler(who finished birdie-birdie) with a birdie-eagle finish on course, then came from 1 down in the playoff.

June 10, 2018 Oakland, MI

June 8, 2018 Plymouth
2 time winner

Birkle Sets Records at East Side Charity Classic
June 3, 2018 Troy
Birkle wins
Eric Birkle shot a 7 under par 64 Sunday at the Sylvan Glen edition of the East Side Charity Classic. The tournament rotates between Sylvan Glen and Sancutary Lake and Birkle's score sets both a course and tournament record. #1 ranked Corey McCue finished second with a 4 under par score that also topped the course record. Chuck Withey finished 3rd at 2 under par and Rich Dunmore took 4th at 1 under. On course prizes went to McCue, Scott Wilsey, and Barb Hoelzle. Chuck "The Closer" Withey did finish with 2 birdies and finished in the money for a remarkable 8th time in 11 starts this season. He leads the Tour money standings and now has nearly doubled the amount of 2nd place John Raymond. Birkle put together 2 eagles and 6 birdies in his round and finished with a back-nine 30 for a record setting 5th win on Tour in his 76th start.  And special recognition to Corey McCue who tied an 18 year old record by hitting 15 of 18 greens in regulation. He tied Todd Stuart who managed the feat in the 2000 Western Swing at Pierce Lake. If it's any consolation, Todd didn't win that year either, finishing T4.


Robar's Key Eagles Lead to Win at Dudlee's
June 2, 2018 Plymouth
Winner Joe Robar
Sponsor Karl Carter, Winner Joe Robar, and Leader Dog Representative Jeff Graunke

Joe Robar eagled both par 5's on the Fox Hills Classic Hills and Woodlands circuit to post a 6 under par score and hold on for his 7th Tour win in 115 starts. Joe made a key bounce back eagle on #2 that righted the ship after a tough first hole, then eagled the 15th to break away from the pack.  Ned Loving made a back-nine run with 3 birdies but fell a shot short and tied Chuck Withey for 2nd at 5 under par. Greg Kline, Dave Oliver, and John Lennane all shared 4th. The remarkable round included 7 players who shot gross scores in the 70's including all the top finishers and World #1 Corey McCue. On Course prizes went to Withey, Loving and Helen Puffenberger who gathered 2 CTP's.  Dudlee's event raised $550 for Leader Dogs for the Blind.

Klipa Plays Out the String for 2nd SOAR Win
May 26, 2018  Howell
Red Ribbon Winner
Jeff Klipa managed his string well for the 2nd year in a row and secured a Red Ribbon for his 2nd career victory at the Strokes on a Rope tournament on Saturday. Firm greens despite the wet weather lately translated to several chips close to the hole and good putting which enabled Jeff to use his string sparingly and leave some for the 18th green and a key one-putt to save bogey on the hole and preserve the win. Not a leader-board watcher, Klipa knew he was playing well, but was surprised to see himself in the lead at 1 under par at the end of the round, leaving a nervous wait in the clubhouse as the course and lack of string did in his chasers one by one down the stretch. Money List leader Chuck Withey finished 2nd at 1 over par and past winners Tim Markel, Greg Kline, and David Martin all tied for 3rd at 2 over par. Markel and Scott Wilsey won on course prizes and Rich Dunmore secured a spot in the West Skins Game for October. The win is a Tour leading 25th for Klipa (308 starts), who also logged his 78th top 4 finish. However Martin logged his 79th top 4 to hold off Klipa for 4th all-time in that list. This is the 2nd time in Klipa's career he has successfully defended a title, having accomplished the feat at the 2014 Casino Classic. The last to repeat on Tour was Rich Dunmore at last year's Fifty Cent Classic.
The event also marked Chris Cooley's 100th on Tour.


Cooley Converts 5th Extra Hole for Memorial Win
May 19, 2018 Romulus
Memorial Winners
Cooley and Withey are presented winners check by Tournament Sponsor Erika Meland

Down the stretch the leader-board of the The Memorial churned and the teams of Chris Cooley / Chuck Withey and Bill Gordon / Dan Gubachy came out tied at the top at 3 under par. Cooley and Withey made 5 birdies to charge to the lead, but came home in an ambulance with 2 bogeys in their last 4 holes. Meanwhile Gordon and Gubachy birdied their final hole (the 13th) to slide into the playoff. In the playoff, acting Commissioner Mike Prieskorn laid out a tough course and both teams made clutch saves on the way to a 1 over par regulation 4 hole aggregate. On the first overtime hole, Commissioner Prieskorn relented with a straight forward set up and Chris Cooley, in his second playoff in as many weeks, dropped a dramatic ace on the first shot. Gubachy's attempt to match drifted right and Gordon left his effort an agonizing 3 inches short of the hole. The win marks Cooley and Withey's 2nd Green Towel victory and they become the 3rd team in tournament history to win twice as a team (Caruana - Martin 2001,2003 and Carter - Akunuri 2011,2014). The teams of Kline/ Raymond, Carter/ Graunke, and Dunmore / Dunmore all finished tied for 3rd at 2 under par. On course prizes went to Mike Nicholas, Rich Dunmore, Helen Puffenberger, and Karl Carter. Dave Oliver and Rookie Justin Bennett, playing as an amateur team took Low Am honors with a notable 2 under par actual score. The win is Cooley's 9th in 99 starts on Tour
and 3rd Major, while Withey gets his 7th win in 103 starts and 2nd Major.

Duff Comes From Behind Twice to Get First Win
May 12, 2018  Shelby Twp
Duff gets First
Coming down the stretch in the last group of the day, after a great under par round, Nic Duff's hopes for his first win dimmed when a bogey on 17 dropped him 3 shots back of Chris Cooley who was in the club house at 5 under par. But a great drive and approach shot on 18 left him 20 feet away from an improbable tie for first! With hushed gallery watching, including Cooley, Nic sunk the putt for the season's first net Albatross! In the ensuing playoff, Duff took the early lead with a par at the first. But Cooley bounced back with par on the very difficult 3rd hole while Duff knocked his first shot off the back of the green and took 3 more to get in the hole.  Suddenly one down with one hole to go, Duff's final hole 15 foot down-hiller slammed the back of the cup for an ace! Cooley was unable to convert to tie and Duff had win number 1. Jeff Pasz finished 3rd at 2 under par and Scott Wilsey was 4th at 1 under.  Duff's win sent the Tour archivists scurrying into the records vault to see if anyone else has managed a first win with a temp MTHI. They haven't come back yet. On course prizes went to Barb Hoelzle and Jan Cepiga while Gregg Nothdurft won the 2nd Qualifier for the East Skins Game. Wilsey's 4th place prize money was just enough to edge him past Hoelzle for the all-time lead in Cherry Creek winnings.

Lardin Survives Rain and Snakes at Animal House
May 6, 2018 Salem Twp
Lardin now #2
Brian Lardin finished atop an ever-changing leader-board at the end of a sometimes rainy, mostly windy day at the Animal House Classic. He birdied the final 3 holes to shoot 5 under par and overtake Tim Markel who finished at 3 under par. Chuck Withey was third at 2 under par and Jeff Klipa took fourth at 1 under par. Lardin's strong finish overcame being bitten by 7 zoo animals on the day including 4 snakes (sssssss). Helen Puffenberger and Brian Pieszchala took the on course prizes. The win is Brian's 3rd in 28 Tour starts, moving him to #2 in the World Rankings.
The low zoo ratios went to Kevin Gregoire, Chris Cooley, Puffenberger and Markel. In the exciting gift card putt off, Gregoire took the early lead after two holes, but Cooley sunk an ace on the third to tie for the lead. That set up a climatic downhill ace by Gregoire to take the zoo keeper title.

McCue Takes #1 World Ranking at Sparty
May 5, 2018 Auburn Hills
McCue New #1
Corey McCue got career win #3 (28 starts) at the Sparty Classic and wrested the World #1 Ranking away from Mike Prieskorn in the process. Corey flirted with the tournament record before settling for a 5 under par, 3 shot victory over Eric Morris, claiming that the beer ran out on the last four holes. Seth Erskine, Tom W. Litzler, and Sam Hiestand all tied for third at 1 under par. Notable milestones were achieved at the Sparty by Chuck Withey (100th start), Mike Prieskorn (150th start) and Barb Hoelzle (200th start).  Kevin Gregoire got the fewest putts prize with 28. On course prizes went to Seth Erskine and Steve Villerot (the coveted Sparty Towel) and Mike Prieskorn did have a bright spot in the day when he took the first qualifier for the East Skins Game.


Kline Finally Re-Takes the Tin Cup
April 29, 2008 Superior Twp
Kline wins 22nd
Kathy Kowaczyk of Train with Tami presents the Tin Cup to Greg Kline

Greg Kline won the Tin Cup tournament in 2006. In the next 11 years he managed 7 top 4's, including 4 2nd's, without another win. But this year he made it back to the winner's circle with a even par one shot victory over Tom Moran. Chris Cooley was 3rd and Helen Puffenberger and Chuck Withey tied for 4th. Kline said the highlight of his round was birdieing the 17th par 3 over water that has been the cause of many a 2nd place finish. He is excited to have an early jump on qualifying for the Player's Championship. The win is his 22nd on Tour in 252 starts, tying him for 3rd in all-time wins. Prize contest winners included Rich Dunmore for fewest putts, Ned Loving closet to pin, Helen Puffenberger who takes the first spot in the Central Skins Game, and Bob Delorey who got highest gross score in his temp-2 round. Well played sir.


Old Tom's Experience Conquers Chelsea Classic
April 28, 2018 Chelsea
Tom W Litzler wins 5th
In his 199th start on Tour TomW Litzler broke from the gate early with 2 birdies and an eagle in the first 5 holes and then kept the field at bay the rest of the day for a 4 shot win over Chuck Withey. Tom's 5 under par tied the Pierce Lake course record held by David Martin. Former CC winner Eric Birkle, Joe Robar, and Jeff Graunke all tied for third. The win moved T.W. into the top 16 in the World Rankings. Tom said he wasn't leader board watching, but knew it was a solid day as he really only got loose on one hole, but even then still managed a bogey.  Kevin Gregiore took an on course prize for the third event in a row, a possible record. Jeff Pasz also took home a CTP prize.


Raymond Sweeps Weekend at Sweet Sixteen
April 22, 2018 Oakland Twp
#2
After waiting nearly 4 years for his first Tour win on Saturday, John Raymond only waited 24 hours for his 2nd!  John again set a course record, this time matching Chris Cooley's 9 under par mark from 2 years ago. 2014 champ Joe Brandenburg finished 2nd with a sterling 6 under par. Kevin Gregoire posted his 2nd top four finish of the weekend with a 5 under par third place. Gary Thomas kicked off his season with a 4th place 4 under par. Bill Gordon, Seth Erskine and Mike Nicholas all finished in the money for the 2nd day in a row.  Gregoire took an on course prize for the 2nd day in row.


John Raymond Opens Season with First Win
April 21, 2018 Ypsilanti
Raymond Wins First
Picking up where he left off in last fall's "Silly Season", John Raymond scorched the normally very tough Pine View layout for his first career official win in a course and event record 7 under par. Raymond said he did watch the leaderboard and was pushed to birdie 5 of his last 7 holes by a hard charging runner up Kevin Gregoire, who while playing in the group behind Raymond also broke the event record at 5 under par, all acquired over his last 7 holes. Even more impressive was that the dueling duo finished in the treacherous wooded back nine section of holes 11 thru 15. Bill Gordon, playing in Raymond's group, couldn't match JR down the stretch and finished 3rd at 1 over par. Chuck Withey finished 4th at 2 over. Gregoire and Greg Nothdurft took the on course prizes. Raymond's first win comes in his 79th start on Tour after finishing 2nd or 3rd 13 times.
