Jackson, MI – The team of Frank McAuliffe from Meadowbrook Country Club and Steve Vecellio from Birmingham Country Club were able to follow up their impressive opening round of (-9 under par) 63 in the morning with a 64 in the afternoon to win the 2018 Winston Collection / St Andrews Products Senior Junior Championship at the Country Club of Jackson on Monday.

28 teams teed it up on Monday in the Winston Collection / St Andrews Products Senior Junior Championship, with one professional 50 years of age and older and one professional under the age of 50. After the morning round we had two teams tied at the top with rounds of 63 including Frank and Steve along with the host professionals from the Country Club of Jackson Ron Beurmann and Henry Thompson.

With 5 teams within 2 shots of the lead Frank and Steve knew it would be close and take something special to bring home the victory. That is just what they did when they made eagles at both #2 and #5 on route to their afternoon round of 64 and a (-17 under) 127 total, good for a 2 shot victory.

Henry and Ron followed up their round of 63 with a 65 in the afternoon finishing tied for second with the team of Gary Smithson from Quai Ridge Golf Course and Dan Urban from Gull Lake Country Club ,both at (-15) ,129 total.

The Country Club of Jackson provided a great venue for this championship as the golf course was in great shape and the food and beverage team provided a first-class lunch.

We would also like to thank our sponsors of this event – the Winston Collection, St Andrews Products and the PGA Tour. Their sponsorship provided a $12,000 purse for this event with the winning team taking home $2,500.
