Team from the Lochmoor Club wins the 2016 Club Car Spring Scramble presented by Evolve Golf

Rochester, MI – With 17 birdies and one par the team from the Lochmoor Club with professionals John Pershern, Kyle Martin, Ryan Wright and amateur Dan Kilberg took home top honors in the Michigan Section’s opening Club Car Spring Scramble presented by Evolve Golf at the Sharf Course at Oakland University.

With the rain holding off until later in the evening it turned out to be a beautiful day which made way for some low scoring on the Sharf Course in  this 4 person scramble format. With 4 teams all tied at (-16) under and looking like a possible playoff the team from the Lochmoor Club came in at (-17), good enough for the one shot victory. 2016 Winners with sponsors
