Steve Lawler (Macomb Twp, MI) finally claimed his first TPC title, outlasting all others in the six round marathon.
In his six prior TPC’s, Lawler recorded two 2nd and two 3rd place finishes, but the ultimate prize eluded him.
Trailing co-leaders Andy Kurncz (Fenton, MI) and Coree Raden (Caledonia, MI) by four after 36 holes, Lawler closed with stellar rounds of 70-68-71-73 over the final four to seal the deal.
“The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential,” exclaimed Lawler, “These are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.”
Others finishing in the top 5 were runner-up Ron Clifton (Richland, MI), 3rd Dan McKay (Warren, MI) and tied 4th Coree Raden (Caledonia, MI) and Eric Founier (Harper Woods, MI).
Noteworthy – This was the second TPC to be conducted over 108 holes, the first occurring three years earlier in 2002.
