Oak Pointe Country Club Teams win the 2014 Taylor Made / National Car Rental Pro Am

South Lyon, MI – It was a clean sweep for the teams from Oak Pointe Country Club as they were able to take home top honors in both the Gross and Net Divisions in the 2014 Taylor Made / adidas / Ashworth / National Car Rental Pro Am at Walnut Creek Country Club. Michael Strain and his amateur partner Ally Geer won the Gross division with a score of 100 (-8) and the team of professional John Seltzer and his amateur partner Ed Millington won the Net division with a score of 96 (-12). Michael is the General Manager at Oak Pointe CC and John is the Director of Golf.

64 total teams teed it up on Monday in this 27 hole best ball event at Walnut Creek Country Club in South Lyon, MI. Teams recorded both their gross and net best ball and placed in which ever division they finish higher. The golf course was in great shape and the strong winds made it a tough test.

It was a close race in both the Gross & Net Divisions this year. Coming in second in the Net Division, just one shot behind John Seltzer and Ed Millington was the team of professional Brian Cairns from the Fox Hills Learning Center and his amateur partner Glen Hirshberg. John Seltzer and Ed Millington were also runners up in the Gross Division with a score of 101, just one back of Michael and Ally.2014 sponsor pics

We would like to thank our sponsors of this event both Taylor Made / adidas / Ashworth and National Car Rental. Everyone received a tee gift from adidas and the teams played for a purse of $18,000. This is the third year that Taylor Made / adidas / Ashworth have sponsored this event and the first year that National Car Rental has been involved as a sponsor. National Car Rental is sponsoring Pro Am events in every PGA Section this year as part of their Pro Am Series. Our two winning teams today will be entered for a chance to win a trip to play with Keegan Bradley down in Florida later this year.

We would also like to thank our host site Walnut Creek Country Club and their PGA Professional Jeremy Lathwell. Jeremy and his staff did a great job hosting the event as I know everyone had a great time and enjoyed the facility and the 27 hole format.
