MAHONEY AND CUZZORT LEAD AT BOYNE

BOYNE FALLS – Jeff Cuzzort and Korey Mahoney, a couple of mini-tour players, share the lead after two rounds of the Boyne Tounament of Champions. The duo are 3-under par after 36-holes and have a slim 1-stroke lead heading into the final round of the 54-hole event.

Scott Hebert and Lee Houtteman of Traverse City are just one shot back and seven other players are 2-strokes back at one-under par.

The entire field dodged threatening weather all day on The Alpine course at Boyne Mountain. Soft conditions did not help with scoring as players struggled with deep, wet rough.

Mahoney shot 3-under 69. The 27 year old was paired with the leaders and was “just trying to keep pace with them.” After an eagle on the par five 12th “ I looked at the leaderboard and knew I needed two birdies to get into the last group for the last round.” Mahoney then birdied 2 of the last three holes.

Cuzzort had a second round 70 despite putting “horribly”. The 26-year old had a string of 10 consecutive pars before his playing companion, Brian Cairns, told him to “get off the par streak.” Cuzzort listened and turned in a couple of birdies to go with his bogey-less round. “I can’t remember the last time I had a bogey free round,” he said. “But I hit it well off the tee today and that has been the worse part of my game this year.”

Ryan Brehm, Bill Zylstra, Mike Raymond, J.R. Roth, Dan Olsen, Ian Harris and first round leader Andy Ruthkoski are all at 1-under par and tied for fifth.

This unique 54-hole event pits men, women, juniors, seniors, professionals and amateurs against each other. They all have won a Michigan major golf tournament. The equalizer for the diverse field are three sets of tees on Boyne Mountain’s Alpine Course. The forward tees play to 5,905 yards and are used by all women and men age 70+. The middle tees measure to 6,562 yards and are played by men 50+ and any junior men with high school eligibility remaining. The back tees are used by all men 49 and under and measure 6,938 yards.

Cuzzort and Mahoney are the low professionals at -3, Houtteman is the low senior at -2, Zylstra and Raymond are the low amateurs at -1, Henry Do is the low junior at +2, Allison Fouch is the low female at +3, Nick Berklich is the low super senior at +8.

76-players made the cut. There is a $55,000 purse. The winner’s share is $10,000 and a lifetime membership  into the Country Club of Boyne. Live scoring can be found at www.michigan.pga.com.
