2013 Michigan PGA Junior Tour Championship

IMAG0179Frankenmuth, MI-The Tour Championship at The Fortress capped off another successful season for the Michigan PGA Junior Tour. Jack Weller from Swartz Creek took first place honors in the Boys 16-18 division by finishing even par for the tournament with scores of 74-70 for 144. Finishing in second place was our Boys 16-18 Player of the Year Matthew Alderink from Battle Creek. Congratulations to Matthew who finished his season at The Fortress with rounds of 72-75 for a 147 finish. Our third place finisher was David Smith from Highland. David followed up his impressive win at Polo Fields-Washtenaw with a strong showing at the Tour Championship with rounds of 73-76 for a total of 149.

IMAG0184The Girls 16-18 division ended in dramatic fashion with a playoff between Elayna Bowser of Dearborn and Jamie Greene of Troy. Both of these players have had a great season, and it was only fitting that they required extra holes to determine a winner. Jamie Greene won the playoff on the first hole to take home first place, and lock up Player of the Year honors for the Girls 16-18 division. Elayna had an exceptional 2013 season winning 3 of 5 tournaments she competed in, and finishing second in the Tour Championship. Finishing third in their division was Pader Her of Lansing. Pader had early success this season by placing first at Forest Akers and closing out the year with a third place finish at the Tour Championship.

IMAG0181Imaad Qureshi of Bloomfield Hills was victorious at The Tour Championship for the Boys 13-15 by posting rounds of 75-77 for a total of 152. This capped off Imaad’s third first place finish for the season. Taking second place was Tony Fuentes of Lansing with two rounds of 77 for a total of 154. Tied for third place were Jonathan Ravid of Bloomfield Hills, and Noah Rocheleau of Goodrich with scores of 156. Player of the Year honors for the Boys 13-15 division was awarded to Eric Nunn of Dewitt. Eric had a tremendous season with first place finishes at Flint Golf Club, and Forest Akers. Well done!

IMAG0183The Girls 13-15 Player of the Year was awarded to Abby Detmar of Harbor Springs. Abby concluded her season with a victory at The Tour Championship, and finished second at Grand Traverse Resort. Following Abby and finishing second at The Fortress was Gabriella Scopone of Ann Arbor. Gabriella won 50% of the tournaments that she played in this season, and ended with a strong finish in Frankenmuth. Finishing in third place was Sheridan Graves of Detroit. Sheridan finished in the top three of each event she played in this summer, and played well down the stretch to end her season.

I would like to thank all the players and parents this summer for your support of our program. I would also like to thank The Fortress, Zehnders, and Head Golf Professional Erich Kuhlman for their help in making the Michigan PGA Tour Championship memorable.  

Hope to see you all next season!
