DOVRE'S 66 GOOD FOR FIRST ROUND MICHIGAN PGA LEAD

EAST LANSING, MI - Eric Dovre of Royal Oak has a two-stroke lead after the first round of the Michigan PGA Professional Championship. The 27-year-old 1st Assistant at Detroit Golf Club shot a 6-under par 66 on the Eagle Eye Golf Course for his first lead as a professional. Four-time winner Scott Hebert, Aaron Busch and Charles Pasco are tied for second with 68.

Dovre had 7-birdies despite an inconsistent driver that left him hitting 3-provisional balls during the round. “My putter kept me going,” he said. “This is only my second time to play in tis event but I like the Eagle Eye Golf Course the best.”

The Michigan PGA Championship is played on the two championship courses at Hawk Hollow properties, Hawk Hollow and Eagle Eye Golf Clubs.

Hebert likes Eagle Eye too, especially the back nine where he shot 5-under Monday. The Head Professional at Grand Traverse Resort and Spa had 3-consecutive bogeys on the front nine before he turned things around.

Busch, from Forest Lake CC, had 68 aided by birdies on the last 3-holes. Pasco’s 68 was shot at the Hawk Hollow course where “the trees knock the breeze down a bit. The course was absolutely fantastic,” said the assistant from Plum Hollow Country Club.

Five players are tied for fifth at three under par. They are John Pershern of Lochmoor CC, Joe Pollack of Golf Emporium, Lee Houtteman of Grand Traverse Resort and Spa, Dave Kendall of Kendall Golf Academy and 2-time champion Steve Brady of Oakland Hills CC.

162 PGA Professionals are in the field with a $48,000 purse. The field will be cut to the top 70-players and ties after 36-holes. The final round will be played Wednesday at Eagle Eye. Live scoring is at www.michigan.pga.com. The public is welcome to attend. There is free parking and no admission charge.
