MiGCSA Class A Member Andy Dalton hosted the 15th annual State Championship, the MiGCSA Major, on September 15th at Atlas Valley G.C. in Grand Blanc. This event is not just for those competing for the trophy there is also a 1 of 4 net team event so everyone can get in the game. The course was really in remarkable condition thanks to the great work by Andy and his staff.
The 2022 event was well contested with very few rounds in the 70’s on a tough layout and set up. In the end the 2020 & 2021 Champion defended his title, Josh Shaw, Superintendent at Inverness C.C. in Chelsea with a 70 edging out Craig Kooienga who shot 71 and Mike Gianopoulos who both shot 72. The low net champion was Dan Subina, Superintendent at Salem Hills who shot a net 66 to win. Congratulations to both of our individual winners! The best 1 of 4 net game was won by the team of Brett Roberts, Tyler Cooper, Scott Mincher & Joshua Shaw with a net 56. The long drive was won by Josha Shaw. The closest to the pins were won by Scott Mincher (2), Mike Gianopolos & Craig Kooienga. The longest putt was won by Bryan Bloomensaat.
With this win Josh will be heading to the Michigan Open in 2023 thanks to the exemption offered thanks to the Michigan PGA. Thank you to our 2022 Industry Partners for making events like these possible.
