Houtteman/Brons-Piche win Nike State Pro Am in dramatic fashion!

Harbor Springs, MI – It took one playoff hole as Lee Houtteman, professional from Manitou Passage Golf Club, holed out from 80 yards for eagle on the par 5 18th hole at the Boyne Highlands Hills Course. Both Ron English and his son Blake English had putts for eagle to extend the playoff but came up short making Lee Houtteman and his amateur partner Nikolaj’ Brons-Piche the 2014 Champions. Both teams finished the tournament at a  131 total ( -13 under) in this best ball format on the Boyne Highlands Hills and Heather courses.2014 Nike State Pro Am winners pic

With 14 teams starting the day within 3 shots of the lead we know it would make for an exciting finish. The teams of Brian Cairns from the Fox Hills Learning Center and his amateur partner Ian Harris along with the team of professional Gary Smithson from Thousand Oaks Golf Club and his amateur partner Nate Golomb both had birdie putts on hole #18 to get to -13 and join the playoff but both missed and finished at -12, one shot back.
