This past weekend the Great Lakes Region 4 golf tournament was held at Purgatory. Teams from around the Midwest played in the two day, 36 hole event tackling the Black Tees set up at 7,146 yards.
The team champion was Missouri-St Louis with a 4 player score of 579 (290-289).
Harrison Carmichael of Lewis University won the individual championship in a playoff with Maryville University’s Destin Harris. Both shot 2 under par 142’s.
The University of Indianapolis served as the host school and golf coach Brent Nicoson cited the support of the pro shop golf staff and the course being such a good test of golf as why Purgatory was ideal for this event.
In closing remarks, he recognized work of head professional Jon Stutz, assistant pro Brian Pearce and course superintendent James Brown. “Just a couple of weeks ago the course was under 9 inches of snow,” Nicoson added.
Teams now return for their conference championships with several projected to earn slots in the final NCAA national event.
