Katanski Earns Medalist Honors at the 99th Michigan Amateur Championship

For the second straight day at the 99th Michigan Amateur Championship only two players, Tim Katanski (Ypsilanti) and Johnathan Pauli (DeWitt), broke par at Oakhurst Golf & Country Club.

Katanski followed his first round of even-par 71 with a 69 Wednesday to capture medalist honors. Katanski’s two day total of 140 edged defending champion Tom Werkmeister (Kentwood) who shot 70-73-143, Pauli who shot 73-70-143 and Nick Carbary (Kalamazoo) who shot 71-72-143.

“I had a good feeling coming in here," Katanski said. “Oakhurst’s superintendent (Kyle Celmer) has this course in phenomenal shape and the greens are rolling great. It’s a comfortable yardage into the holes and the fairways are very generous. I only missed one fairway all day on hole No. 9.  I love the layout of this course. I think Oakhurst is a fair test and has plenty of room to hit the ball perfectly.”
