Pine to Palm tourney
The 80th Pine to Palm Golf Tournament will be running from Aug. 6-12, out at the Detroit Country Club, as the youngest champion in the event's history will be defending his 2011 title.
Fargo's Connor Holland won the Pine to Palm championship last summer, after beating Alex Robb in the title match.
Holland became the youngest champion at the age of 17 years old, ironically after Todd Hillier was the oldest Pine to Palm champion a year prior at 51 years old.
Also returning to defend their titles will be Mid-Am champ Jay Olafson, Seniors champion Rob Harris and Super-Seniors winner Chuck Renner.
Qualifying stroke play for the tournament starts Monday, Aug. 6, with match play starting Thursday, Aug. 9.
The Championship Flight will be a 64-player bracket. The tournament also includes the three championship divisions, including Mid-Am, Seniors and Super-Seniors.
There also will be name flights for match play for the players who don't qualify for championship play, as well as numbered flights.
Championship matches will be Sunday, Aug. 12.
