As the old adage goes, practice makes perfect. Coree Raden’s (Caledonia, MI) victory at the 2001 TPC can attest this to be true.

Raden, who trailed Louis Song (Plymouth, MI) and Derek Andre (Livonia, MI) entering the third round, all but sealed the victory with a spectacular round of 63.

This score gave Raden a commanding 9 stroke lead entering the final round, one he would not relinquish.

“The dictionary is the only place that success comes before work,” stated Raden. “Hard work is the price we must pay for success. I think you can accomplish anything if you’re willing to pay the price.”

Other top five finishers include 2nd Song, 3rd Andre, 4th Todd Statetzny (Novi, MI) and 5th Andy Kurncz (Fenton, MI).

Noteworthy – This was the first TPC to be played outside of the state of Michigan.
