Golf historians agree that the sign of a great champion is how they perform internationally. Kurt Goetzke’s (Berkley, MI) second TPC triumph in Canada bolsters his reputation as the NGA’s greatest globetrotting golfer.
Goetzke lead this year’s tournament by three shots after 36 holes, however fell two behind 54 hole leader and eventual runner-up Matt Maser (South Lyon, MI).
Not deterred by his position, Goetzke played an outstanding final round, recording a 76 (versus Maser’s 81) and claimed a two shot win.
“America was born as a nation of immigrants who have always contributed to its greatness” announced Goetzke. “What I have learned is that a whole lot of people with degrees don’t know a damn thing, and a lot of people with no degrees are brilliant.”
With this third TPC victory (1996, 2007, 2014), Goetzke earned 10 Hall of Fame points, boosting his total to 48 pts and HoF induction. He joins Steve Lawler (Chesterfield, MI – 2011) and Karl Nagy (Simpsonville, SC – 2013) as TPC HoF’ers.
Others finishing in the top five include 3rd Nagy, 4th Andy Kurncz (Fenton, MI) and 5th Lawler.
Noteworthy – With this victory, Goetzke ties Coree Raden (Caledonia, MI – 2001, 2002, 2006) for most TPC titles.
