Harbor Springs, – Ron Beurmann from the Country Club of Jackson continued his fine play this year by winning the 2013 Michigan Senior PGA Professional Championship presented by O’Keefe / Southworth Development / Mercedes Benz   today at Birchwood Farms Golf & Country Club in Harbor Springs.

With 17 players within 3 shots of the lead to start the day we knew anything could happen. Ron was able to make a 15 foot birdie putt on the final hole to force a playoff with Bob Makoski, both Ron and Bob shot (-2) under par rounds of 70 today to finish at (-4) under for the tournament. Ron was able to defeat Bob on the first playoff hole with a par. This is Ron’s first Michigan Senior PGA Championship win. He solidified his position as the Michigan Senior Player of the Year as he also won the Club Car Senior Open a few weeks ago at Bedford Valley.

We would like to thank our host site Birchwood Farms Golf & Country Club. This is the first year that they have hosted this event. The golf course is in great shape and proved  to be an excellent venue. The club kicked things off by hosting a opening party on Sunday night for the players that also served as a fundraiser for the Northern Chapter First Tee Program.

We would also like to thank our sponsors of this event. We have a local sponsor O’Keefe that has stepped up to help support the event along with our National Sponsors Southworth Development, Mercedes Benz and the PGA Tour.
