Shearer Scores Second Win At Forest Dunes

One under 71 bests Wilson by four


September 25, 2007

David Shearer
Roscommon, Michigan – For over a week, the forecast called for rain. Even the night before, the prediction was for a washout. But when the day dawned and it was time to play, Forest Dunes G.C. in Roscommon was the place to be -- there couldn't have been more perfect conditions.

Taking full advantage was David Shearer of Charlevoix, who posted a one under par 71 to win his second consecutive Michigan Player's Tour event by four shots. Paul Wilson of Grayling was second.

After an even par front nine, Wilson held a one shot lead through 10 holes. A birdie by Shearer on the 11th tied Wilson, and another on the 13th gave him a one shot lead. But a pair of sixes by Wilson on the par five 15th and the par three 16th widened Shearer's lead as he cruised home with five consecutive pars.

Designed by Tom Weiskopf, Forest Dunes G.C. is a spectacular course set in the forests north of Roscommon, Michigan. One of the unique features of the course are the natural outcroppings of sand interspersed with the forest, hence the name of the course. Measuring 7,104 yards with a par of 72, the course has lightning fast greens with numerous undulations, demanding precision iron play to avoid three putts. Driving accuracy is also important, as waste bunkers and the forest pinch in on several holes.a

Shearer Survives at RTJ Masterpiece

Windy conditions ravage field


September 18, 2007

David Shearer
Gaylord, Michigan – A beautiful sunny day, with temperatures in the 80's? Not bad for Northern Michigan in mid September.

But with the sunshine came heavy winds -- 15 to 25 mph with higher gusts. And on one of the most difficult courses in Michigan, the Robert Trent Jones Masterpiece at the Treetops Resort, it became an all out survival test, with disaster lurking on nearly every shot. In other words, a typical event on the Michigan Player’s Tour.

In the end, it was David Shearer of Charlevoix who picked up his first win on Tour. Shearer posted an 82 to win by two shots over Tour Director Ken Carter.

For the second week in a row, Carter had the low round going at the turn. But a triple bogey on the 11th hole proved too much for him to overcome. Paul Wilson of Grayling also had a chance, but a triple bogey of his own on the final hole took him out of the money.

The Robert Trent Jones Masterpiece is a 7,060 yard par 71 course with some of the most amazing scenery you will find on any course in the world. Marked by spectacular changes in elevation, the course requires precise shot placement -- or else. Even on some of the most benign holes, the architecture brings disaster into play, whether it be a water hazard, a drop off into an unplayable lie, or a putt over a precipice.

The strong winds caused the greens, which have severe undulations, to dry out and become extremely fast. "With the conditions we faced, I would be willing to bet even Tiger Woods would have had a tough time breaking par out here today," said Carter.

Duo Splits First Place Money in Taylor

Zavadil and Young Tie with 75s


September 11, 2007

Taylor, Michigan – It was a beautiful day, with temperatures in the low 70's and a fresh breeze. The course, one of the best in the Detroit metro area, was in superb condition although wet from overnight rains. All in all, it was a picture perfect setting for a great event on the Michigan Player’s Tour.

The only problem? Hardly anyone signed up to play.

After posting identical 3 over par 75s in the testing conditions, former Canadian Tour player Jordan Young from Brownstown and PGA Professional Matt Zavadil of Taylor decided to forgo a playoff and split the first prize money at The Lakes of Taylor on September 11th.

A two under par 34 on the front nine gave Tour Director Ken Carter a two shot lead heading into the back nine, but his lead evaporated on the 10th hole with a double bogey. A double bogey / triple bogey finish on the final two holes was his ultimate demise. “It was my best nine holes of the year, followed by my worst,” Carter said.

Zavadil, trailing Carter by 6 shots and Young by 4 at the turn, came home in one under par 35 to force the tie.

The Lakes of Taylor is a 7,028 yard par 72 course operated by the City of Taylor. Designed by Arthur Hills, it has surprising character for a course completely surrounded by residential subdivisions in a relatively flat part of town. The course has a “murderer’s row” of five consecutive long par 4s on the back nine, followed by the 201 yard par three 17th, which features a forced carry over a lake to a green fronted by an intimidating 6 foot high retaining wall.

The event attracted only 4 players, a season low on the Tour. “Back in March at the Michigan Golf Show, about 20 guys told me they’d like to play in the Lakes of Taylor event,” Carter said. “If they would have played, the first place check would have been $1,300.00 and we would have paid 8 spots.”

Vozza Captures Third Win of Season

Wilson second by one shot again


September 4, 2007

Christian Vozza
Bellaire, Michigan – With PGA Tour School just two weeks away, former University of Michigan player and 2005 Michigan Amateur champion Christian Vozza of Traverse City thought a little competition might help him prepare. After posting a one over par 73 in wet conditions at the difficult 6,989 yard Cedar River Golf Club in Bellaire, Vozza’s preparation now includes the added confidence of winning his third event on The Michigan Player's Tour.

Paul Wilson of Grayling, who has also won three times on Tour this year, shot a 74. This was the second consecutive event he missed a playoff by one shot.

Weather proved to be a factor during the round as showers were persistent and occasionally heavy during the front nine. The rain subsided at the turn, however, and the course was nearly dry again as the round concluded. Temperatures were steady in the low to mid 60's.

Cedar River G.C., one of four courses at the Shanty Creek Resort, is a beautiful Tom Weiskopf design set in the rolling woodlands near Bellaire, about 35 miles northeast of Traverse City. The area is a year-round resort paradise, with spectacular golf courses, snowmobile and ATV trails, cross country and downhill skiing, and the sky blue waters of Torch Lake nearby.

Tour Revises Schedule and Entry Fees

Entry fees reduced, most 36 hole events reduced to 18


July 23, 2007

Due to lack of participation, the Michigan Player's Tour has reduced entry fees into all of the remaining events in 2007 and reduced all but the last of the scheduled 36 hole events to 18 holes.

"As a startup tour, the goal in 2007 was to post a full schedule and see what kind of response we would get," said Ken Carter, Director of the Michigan Player's Tour. "We're getting some response, but not quite to the degree we had expected. Although it is disappointing, to achieve what we have with practically no sponsorship is actually quite remarkable."

Entry fees will now be consistent from event to event, and will be as follows:


Number of rounds
PGA Pros
Unaffiliated Pros
Amateurs
1
$175.00
$200.00
$100.00
2
$350.00
$400.00
$200.00


In reducing most of the 36 hole events to 18 holes, the Tour hopes to attract a few more PGA Section professionals and part-time players to participate. "Until the Tour can post guaranteed purses and draw out of state players, we depend on getting the locals to play. Unfortunately, the guys can't justify taking two days off work to compete in unsponsored events," Carter said. "Once we line up sponsorship, we'll bring back multiple round events."

The exceptions to this reduction in rounds is the event taking place this week at the Otsego Club in Gaylord and the Tour Championship, to be playerd at Hawk Hollow Resort (Eagle Eye G.C.) Oct. 2-3. " We'll keep the Tour Championship at 36 holes, simply beacuse I personally love to play tough courses in windy and raw fall weather conditions, which is what I hope we get that week," Carter said.




Wilson Having A Grande Summer

Leyrer bogey on final hole gives Wilson the win


August 14, 2007

Paul Wilson
Jackson, Michigan – Despite nearly perfect scoring conditions, a collection of tricky pin positions and slick greens were the deciding factor as Paul Wilson of Grayling posted a 5 over par 77 to win The Michigan Player’s Tour event at The Grande G.C. in Jackson by one shot over Jacob Leyrer of Lansing. The win is the third by Wilson on Tour this summer.

Although the greens were in excellent condition, putting proved difficult for nearly the entire field as three putt greens were commonplace. Unfortunately for Leyrer, it was a three putt bogey on the final green which handed Wilson the win.

The Grande G.C. is a relatively long course (7,181 yards) with numerous uniquely designed bunkers protecting fairway landing areas and the greens. The greens are large and have serious undulations, some with elevations of nearly six feet. The course wanders through beautiful acreage containing a mixture of rolling hills, forests and wetlands.

Weather conditions for the round were pleasant, with cloud cover from heavy thunderstorms over Chicago keeping temperatures in the low 70's with very little humidity. Winds were light and variable, increasing to 10 - 15 mph as the round progressed.

Swihart Scores at Sweltering Thousand Oaks

Birdies final hole to clip Paul Wilson by one shot


August 7, 2007

Jason Swihart
Grand Rapids, Michigan – In heat and humidity more typical of the deep South than central Michigan, Jason Swihart of Jackson posted a 5 under par 67 at Thousand Oaks G.C. in Grand Rapids to win The Michigan Player’s Tour event there by one shot over Paul Wilson of Grayling. Former Michigan Amateur champion Jeff Cuzzort finished third with a 2 under par 70.

Cuzzort took a one shot lead going into the back nine with a 3 under 33 on the front. But on the back nine, a wild shootout ensued highlighted by five birdies in a row by Wilson, and three in a row by Swihart. On the 18th tee, Wilson and Swihart were tied at 4 under, but a birdie by Swihart on the demanding 451 yard finishing hole gave him the win.

Although the forecast for the round was for heavy rain beginning overnight and lasting most of the day, the round began in fog and drizzle, which burned off after a few holes to become partly cloudy skies and calm winds. With the dew point in the mid 70's, which is rare in Michigan in the summer, the heat index was near 100 and made for a very soggy and uncomfortable round.

Thousand Oaks G.C. is a perfectly manicured course set in a mature forest and has quite a bit of elevation change on several holes. At 7,128 yards par 72, it is relatively long and has very slick greens. The soft conditions, however, combined with light winds and lift, clean, and place made the course very susceptible to scoring.

Wilson Triumphs At The Tribute

Outlasts pair of international players down the stretch


July 25, 2007

Paul Wilson
Gaylord, Michigan – Despite nearly perfect scoring conditions, The Otsego Club Tribute in Gaylord proved to be anything but a pushover during The Michigan Player’s Tour’s 36 hole event there July 24th and 25th.

After opening with a one over par 73 in the first round, Paul Wilson of Grayling came home with a final round 78 to hold off a pair of international amateurs to win the event. The win is the second for Wilson this year.

Daniele Ronco and Andrea Petrachi, both from Italy, each carded a 10 over par 154 to tie for second. They are in Michigan for the summer preparing to qualify for the U.S. Amateur.

The Tribute is a 7,347 yard par 72 course set in the dramatic Sturgeon River valley just northeast of Gaylord. Designed by Gary Koch and Rick Robbins, the course utilizes severe elevation changes that are adjacent to the Otsego Club ski area in the winter.

The fun begins on the third hole, which is a 430 yard par 4 that has a nearly 200 foot drop in elevation from tee to green. From there, the course meanders through the heavily wooded valley, occasionally climbing back out to set up another spectacular driving hole.

Again, the event this week struggled to attract players, prompting the Tour to make several changes in the schedule. All of the remaining 36 hole events, except the last, have been reduced to 18 holes. Entry fees for the remaining events have also been reduced.

“I look at a course like this, and it amazes me so few players are coming out to play,” said Ken Carter, Director of the Tour. “An awesome course, perfect weather, playing it down, playing it back, and playing for money – I can’t think of any way to have more fun on a golf course than this.”

Vozza Survives Mauling At The Bear

Overcomes six shot deficit on final nine to win by two


July 11, 2007

Christian Vozza
Acme, Michigan – As one of the toughest tests of golf in the northern United States, The Bear at the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa is difficult to score on even in calm winds. But with winds of 20 to 30 mph over two days, The Bear showed its teeth and literally mauled the field of the Michigan Player’s Tour during the 36 hole event played there July 10th and 11th.

In the end, it was former University of Michigan standout and 2005 Michigan Amateur champion Christian Vozza of Traverse City who was the last man standing. Vozza posted rounds of 78 and 77 to win by two shots over Paul Wilson of Grayling.

The first round was played in near 90 degree weather with the threat of severe thunderstorms in the afternoon. After a cold front passed through overnight, the second day was crisp and cool, with temperatures in the low to mid 60's. Skies both days were generally partly cloudy.

The Bear is a Jack Nicklaus design which plays at 7,078 yards par 72. For the event, the course was in perfect condition, with the greens running at about 11 on the Stimpmeter. The greens are small and heavily bunkered, and surrounded by moguls, deep rough and water on several holes.

“It takes a pretty heroic shot to reach some of these greens, especially if you have to hit a 4 iron into a 30 mph wind and if you miss you’re dead,” noted Tour Director Ken Carter. “But this is Michigan golf. There are great courses like this all over the place which demand this kind of shotmaking. Guys will definitely be challenged when playing this Tour.”

Vozza Storms To Victory At The Gailes

Overcomes wind and thunderstorms to win by one


July 19, 2007

Christian Vozza
Oscoda, Michigan – With the Open Championship occurring this week at Carnoustie Golf Club in Scotland, it was only fitting for The Michigan Players Tour to commemorate this great event by conducting its own version of the Open at The Gailes, the links masterpiece at the Lakewood Shores Resort in Oscoda.

Adding to this setting was the weather, which varied wildly from fog and drizzle at the start of the round, to sunny skies and strong winds at the turn, and finally to heavy thunderstorms and a suspension in play as the round concluded.

Once play resumed, it was former captain of the University of Michigan golf team and 2005 Michigan Amateur champion Christian Vozza who overcame all of these obstacles to capture his second straight win on Tour. Vozza posted a four over par 76 to nip Tour Director Ken Carter by a shot.

The Gailes is perhaps the closest replica of a links course you can find in the United States. Playing at 6,954 yards par 72, it isn’t extremely long, but each hole is lined with waist high rough, mounds, marshland and small streams (“burns”), forcing players to hit it straight or else. Stacked sod wall bunkers are everywhere. In addition, the fairways and greens are strewn with numerous bumps and hollows, and it is rare to get a level lie or a straight putt.

“The first five holes at The Gailes demand extreme precision, so you better be firing on all cylinders when you show up here,” said Tour Director Ken Carter. “We saw it all today. The only thing we didn’t see was temperatures in the 50's like in Scotland. If we would have played here tomorrow instead of today, we would have.”It’s Open Championship week, and what better way to commemorate this great event than to stage The Michigan Player’s Tour’s own version of the Open at The Gailes, Lakewood Shores Resort (The Gailes).

Wilson Crowned Champion At King’s Challenge

One under par 69 bests field by five shots

July 3, 2007

Paul Wilson
Cedar, Michigan – Twice a winner on the Michigan Players Tour in 2006, Paul Wilson of Grayling returned to his winning ways July 3rd by posting a one under 69 at King’s Challenge G.C. in Cedar.

Second place went to former U of M standout and 2005 Michigan Amateur champion Christian Vozza of Traverse City, who fired a 74.

Thunderstorms were forecast for the morning of the event, but they did not materialize and the round was played in very comfortable conditions with temperatures in the upper 60's to low 70's.

Although King’s Challenge measures only 6,513 yards from the tips, it requires precise shotmaking and positioning to navigate the hilly terrain and undulating greens. This resistance to scoring was evident as the players posted their scores.

The next event on the Tour will be held July 10-11 at the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa, site of the Michigan Open. “If you’ve never played the Bear or failed to qualify for the Michigan Open, then here’s your chance to play one of the toughest tracks in the northern U.S.,” notes Tour Director Ken Carter. “Up until now, we’ve just been fooling around. It’s time to start playing some serious golf.”

Swihart Secures Win At Angel’s Crossing

Two under par 70 clips Nathan Fritz by one


June 19, 2007

Jason Swihart

Vicksburg, Michigan – Fresh off a top ten finish in the Michigan Open the week before in which he held the 36 hole lead, Jason Swihart of Jackson shot a two under par 70 at Angel’s Crossing G.C. in Vicksburg to capture the second event of the 2007 Michigan Player’s Tour.

Nathan Fritz of South Haven birdied the difficult 473 yard 18th hole to post a 71, which gave him second place over Christian Vozza and Jay Jurecic, both of whom shot 72.

Morning thunderstorms delayed play for an hour and a half and left the course soft and receptive. With little wind in the storm’s aftermath, Swihart ripped the front nine in four under par. On the twelfth hole, the cold front arrived bringing with it gusty west winds of 15 to 25 mph. The dramatically different conditions led to a two over par 38 on the back nine for Swihart, but it was just enough to hold on for the win.

Once again, the small turnout for the event was disappointing. “I keep saying it’s a shame guys aren’t coming out to play this Tour – they really are missing out,” Tour Director Ken Carter said. “Angel’s Crossing and Shepherd’s Hollow are fantastic layouts, both about 7200 yards long with deep rough and severe greens. The guys have had to play phenomenal golf to post the scores they have. And where else can players around here win money playing golf without driving to Florida or Arizona where it feels like it’s 110 degrees outside?”

Jurecic Holds On For Win With Final Round 70

Benson cards 69 to make it close.

June 6, 2007

Jay Jurecic
Clarkston, Michigan – Jay Jurecic of Caspian, Michigan shot a final round 70 to hold off hard charging Canadian Tour player Yohann Benson to win the first event of the 2007 Michigan Player’s Tour season.

Played in spectacular conditions, the final round at the 7,235 yard Shepherd’s Hollow Golf Club was a seesaw battle between Jurecic and Benson from the very start. Trailing by two shots at the start of the day, Benson surged to a one shot lead after a front nine 32. Jurecic fought back to tie him on thirteen, and then regained the lead on the next hole. After Jurecic’s bogey on fifteen, the two were tied once again.

The turning point came on seventeen, a downhill 397 yard par 4 with water left of the green. Benson carded a double bogey to Jurecic’s birdie for a three shot swing. The fireworks continued on the difficult, uphill 461 yard eighteenth, with Benson making birdie to Jurecic’s bogey, a two shot swing which reduced the winning margin to one.

A final round 74 by Tour Director Ken Carter left him in third place, a distant seven shots behind Benson. Former University of Michigan player and 2005 Michigan Amateur champion Christian Vozza tied for fourth with Ryan Holly.

Tour Revises Entry Fees, Membership Policy

Changes made to enhance fields


June 6, 2007

Due to the diffiiculty in obtaining sponsorship, the Michigan Player's Tour has made a couple of revisions to its format to help enhance the fields in events. These revisions are a reduction in entry fees for professionals and the suspension of the membership policy until sponsorship is obtained.

"As you know, the economy in Michigan is struggling a bit, so it's been a tough sell to obtain sponsorship for a new mini tour," notes Tour Director Ken Carter. "The changes we are making will make it more affordable to enter events."

By suspending the membership policy, there is no longer a 25% entry fee surcharge to nonmenber professionals. In addition, the entry fees for PGA Section members has also been reduced. To see the revised entry fees, please go to the Entry Fees page.




Tour Revises Entry Procedure

Players may now place deposits to enter events.


April 29, 2007

The Michigan Player's Tour has revised the event registration process to allow all players to place a deposit on the entry fees of tournaments. Prior to this change, professional players were required to pay entry fees in full to enter events.

For PGA Section members and unaffiliated professionals, the deposit amount per event is $50.00. For amateurs the amount remains $25.00. The changes to the registration process are in effect now.

Tour Director Ken Carter encourages players to get deposits in as soon as possible. "I only have so many tee times reserved for each event, and with these changes now in place, I expect spots to disappear a lot quicker than they did in the past," Carter said.




Tour Designates The First Tee of Michigan As Principal Charity


April 1, 2007

The Michigan Player's Tour has selected The First Tee of Michigan as its principal charity. The Tour will donate a percentage of its profits from each event to the organization.

"Since the primary goal of the Tour is to help the game grow, it's only natural we should support an organization dedicated to the same goal," said Tour Director Ken Carter. "The First Tee not only introduces youngsters to the game, it helps in their development as responsible citizens."

The First Tee program was created in 1997 and includes founding partners The PGA of America, The PGA Tour, The LPGA Tour, The United States Golf Association, and Augusta National Golf Club.

For more information on the First Tee of Michigan and its facilities, click here.




Tour Receives Excellent Response At Michigan Golf Show


March 14, 2007

It was a long weekend, but the overall response from the Michigan Golf Show in Novi March 9-11 was excellent, according to Ken Carter, Director of the Michigan Player's Tour.

"I met at least 25 players who are planning to enter events on the Tour this year, as well as a bunch of guys who are considering it," said Carter. "Combined with other commitments I've received and new contacts from ads placed in various publications, I think we should have decent fields in Tour events right from the start."

The first event of the season is at Shepherd's Hollow G.C. in Clarkston on June 5th and 6th. "Shepherd's Hollow is a spectacular course, and it will challenge even the best players. They really should move the Buick Open there. With the greens cut down and the pins tucked in the corners, guys will have their hands full," Carter said.

The Michigan Golf Show in Novi is the largest consumer golf convention in the United States. The PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando in January is larger, but it is closed to the general public.




Dates Of Two Events Changed


March 5, 2007

6th Hole, The Majestic at Lake Walden
The Michigan Player's Tour has swapped the dates of two events on the 2007 Men's Division schedule. The event at Angel's Crossing G.C. in Vicksburg has moved to June 19th and has become an 18 hole event, and the event at The Ravines G.C. in Saugatuck has moved to June 26th and 27th and has become a 36 hole event. Please refer to the Event Information page for entry fees and other information concerning these events.

The Michigan Player's Tour has also scheduled four events for women in 2007. These events are designed to help publicize the creation of the Women's Division of the Tour in 2008, which will consist of 12 to 16 events at many of the top courses in Michigan. The events are open to all female professionals and to amateurs with a handicap of 5.0 or less.

The four Women's Division events are at The Majestic at Lake Walden in Hartland, Michigan on June 7th, Gull Lake View Resort (Stonehedge South G.C.) in Augusta on June 20th, UAW Black Lake G.C. in Onaway on July 12th, and at Buck's Run G.C. in Mt. Pleasant on August 1st.

Players competing in these events can expect the courses to be set up similar to Future's Tour and LPGA courses (6250 to 6500 yards).




Tour Now Accepting Membership Applications


January 1, 2007

The Michigan Player's Tour is now accepting membership applications for the 2007 Men's Division schedule. Players who wish to become members should contact the Tour office or register online.

The Men's Division schedule will consist of eight 18 hole events and nine 36 hole events at some of the most scenic (and difficult) courses in Michigan. The Tour will kick off the season June 5th at Shepherd's Hollow G.C. in Clarkston, which is ranked #2 by Michigan Golf Magazine in its list of "Michigan Monsters," and continue throughout the summer to nearly every region of the lower peninsula. In all, the Tour will conduct events at six of the courses mentioned in the MGM "monsters" list.

The Tour will also conduct four 18 hole events for women in 2007, which are designed to help publicize the creation of the Women's Division of the Michigan Player's Tour in 2008. Three of these events have now been scheduled, and will occur at Gull Lake View Resort (Stonehedge South G.C.) in Augusta on June 20th, UAW Black Lake G.C. in Onaway on July 12th, and at Buck's Run G.C. in Mt. Pleasant on August 1. In the coming days, the Tour will finalize the Women's Division schedule as well.
