Detroit, MI ̶ The team of Tim Katanski and Mike Ignasiak impressed the field as they followed up their morning round of 59 on the Detroit Golf Club South Course with an (-8) under par round of 64 on the North Course which was good enough for a (-17 under) 123 total and a 2 shot victory in the Gross Division of the Mercy Elite Sports Performance / National Car Rental Pro Am at Detroit Golf Club.


Net Division Champions – Frank McAuliffe & Frank McAuliffe IV

It was the father son team of Frank McAuliffe and Frank McAuliffe IV that took home the top honors in the Net Division on Tuesday with a score of 124 (-16) under par. This was good enough for a one shot victory as they had net scores of (-8 under ) 60 in the am on the South course and (-8 under) 64 in the afternoon on the North Course.

The 69 team field consisted of two-person teams of a PGA Professional and their accompanied amateur in this 36 hole best-ball event. The teams recorded both their gross and net best balls and place in the division they finish highest.

The day started with some fine play as the team of Patrick Wilkes-Krier and David Szymanski took advantage of the scoring conditions putting together 11 birdies for an (-11) under par, 57 on the South Course, to take the morning round lead.

Patrick and David followed that up with a (-4) under par round of 68 on the North Course in the afternoon, but was not quite good enough to hold back Katanski/Ignasiak and McAuliffe/McAuliffe who both tallied together rounds of (-8) under par, 64’s, to push pass Wilkes-Krier/Szymanski for the win.

Steven Vecellio and John Quigley finished their round with a fabulous score of (-10) under par, 62, on the North course placing them at (-13) under par total for the Pro Am and good for a 3rd place finish in the Gross Division.

Evan Bowser also made a memory as he rolled in a hole-in-one on the 150 yard par 3, 3rd hole during the afternoon round.
