Tim Pearce wins the Michigan Section Assistants Championship !

Ypsilanti, MI – It was a beautiful 36-hole event today for the 2019 National Car Rental Michigan PGA Section Assistants Championship at the Marriott at Eagle Crest Resort in Ypsilanti, Michigan. We had 46 PGA assistants tee off this morning to compete for the 3 spots to play in the 43rd National Car Rental Assistant PGA Professional Championship that will be held at the PGA Golf Club in Port St. Lucie, Florida. It will take place on November 14-17, 2019.

Leading the morning round with (-3) 69 was Ben Proben, Ezekiel Schwartz, and Steven Vecellio. All of them were heading into the afternoon round with high hopes. Tim Pearce from Birmingham Country Club started off with a smooth 72 in the morning followed by his career low round of (-8) 64 to clench the 2019 NCR Michigan PGA Section Assistants Championship.

Tim’s second round 64 also set the tournament course record since the course was renovated in 2012. When asked what his thoughts were going into round 2 finding himself 3 shots back of the leaders, Tim mentioned how, “It freed me up and allowed me to avoid the two mistakes I made in the first round.” When reflecting on his record setting 64, Tim expressed, “I’ve worked really hard playing golf since I could stand up and have been waiting for this kind of thing to click for me.”

Jeff Gniewek from Knollwood Country Club took second place with a morning round of (-1) 71 followed by a (-3) 69 in the afternoon. Donald Devantier from Oakland Hills Country Club secured the third qualifying spot with a (-2) 70 in the morning and a (-1) 71 to end the day. All top three players will be advancing to the 43rd National Car Rental Assistant PGA Professional Championship to represent the Michigan Section.

Some other low rounds of the day included Josh Fryer from Franklin Hills Country Club. With a late start in the morning round, he came back in the second round with a (-6) 66 to finish the day.
