West Defends the Cup!
September 25-27, 2020 Canadian Lakes
Team West became the first Team in 7 years to successfully defend the Commissioner's Cup on Sunday.  In a match for the ages that saw several firsts in Cup history, Team West broke out on top big on Day 1 with a 8-2 lead. Four of their teams swept the day, leaving Team Central with a "what have we got to lose" attitude going into Day 2.  A loose Team Central dominated Day 2, taking 7 matches. Afternoon wins by the teams of McCue / Klipa and Markel / Lardin kept Team West in front for the final day.  On Day 3 the unthinkable looked not only possible but likely as Captain Kline's first 6 competitors out swept their matches without even getting to the 18th hole. That left 4 close matches on the course with Team Central needing only a 1/2 point to close the miracle comeback. The next two matches featured the father - son Floyd duo for Team West. Son Tyler won the 17th to go up 1 and held serve on the 18th with a generous concession to halve the hole after Bill Gordon over cooked his drive and was left out of position and eventually unable to convert a long par putt. Simultaneously on the 17th, father Rick Floyd was defeating Dan Gubachy to keep Team West alive. As West Captain Corey McCue and opponent Mike Prieskorn stepped the the 18th tee, behind them Tim "Major" Markel was completing a 4-1 weekend with a win over Ken "Ace" Westerman on the 16th green.  McCue was 1-up and needed to halve the hole to secure defense of the Cup. Both players got off the tee clean, but Prieskorn clipped a tree on his 2nd leaving an awkward 3rd out of tough rough that he left short in a bunker. McCue played solid shots to the fairway and front of the green. McCue ran his long birdie putt to 5 feet while Prieskorn, making sure he wasn't short again, put his 4th just over the green and well above the hole on a steep slope. His Par chip missed just right. McCue stepped up and sank the Par to take the final hole and the Cup. The match is the first in 16 Commissioner's Cup events to finish in a tie.  More remarkable was that none of the 30 matches played on the weekend ended in a halved match.  Captain McCue and 'Major' Markel led Team West with 4-1 records while Rick Floyd, Brian Lardin and Jeff Klipa also had winning records for the weekend. John Raymond led Team Central with a 4-1 weekend while Bill Gordon, Keven Gregoire, and Eric Birkle posted 3-2 marks. This is Team West's 7th Cup win, tying them with Team Central for most all-time.

Day 3
A thriller to the end!

Day 2
Central rallies on Day 2 to make it interesting. Ken 'Ace' Westerman repeated his feat of earlier in the year by holing out on the Par 3 12th hole using the same 7 wood that found the hole in July.

Day 1
West dominates on Day 1
Notable from Thursday practice round: Helen Puffenberger holed out from 150 yards with a 4-hybird on the 18th hole for a rare Albatross. Team Central thanked her for using it up in practice.

September 13, 2020 Salem Twp

ated a split with Steve Villerot's Team Labor in the first round Best Ball matches, but Management took a 3 1/2 to 2 1/2 lead in the Alternate Shot round. Labor took the first match in the final set Scramble, but Management's team of Old and Young Tom Litzler set the table with 2 & 1 win in match 2 and then David Martin clinched the needed 1/2 point with a conceded birdie on the 7th hole in the final match, which ended on the 8th with a 2 & 1 Management win. Team Litzler led Management with 2 1/2 points on the day. Gregg Nothdurft led Labor with 2 points.

Tim ReMarkelable at Tour Championship
September 12, 2020  Bath

Tim Markel shot a record tying 3 under par 69 on the Eagle Eye Championship Course to take the Tour Championship on Saturday. Markel had 8 birdies on the day but it was his eagle on the 17th hole that separated him from David Martin who finished 2nd at 2 under par 70. Elder Statesman of the Tour Martin was bidding for his 7th Major Title but first since 2008. Jeff Pasz finished 3rd at Even par and Dave Oliver tied Helen Puffenberger for 4th 1 over par.

In what has to be termed the 'Bear Trap' of the Mulligan Tour, holes 15, 16, and 17 at Eagle Crest humbled many contenders on day 1 of the Harbour Pointe Open, leaving 4 players tied for the lead on Day 1 including John Raymond and Two Time HPO winner Brian Lardin, Chuck Withey and Ned Loving.  On Day 2, again the final holes denied anyone from pulling away. Raymond amassed a lead, but the 'Bear Trap' brought him back to the field and Lardin birdied the final hole to match him at Even Par and send the event to it's first playoff since going to the two-round format in 2010. In the playoff Raymond played steady par in the 4-hole aggregate format to survive again for the win. The win is Raymond's 5th and 1st Major in 128 starts. He jumps 11 spots to 3rd in the World Rankings while Larding moves to 5th.

Mike Prieskorn tied Helen Puffenburger for 4th at 51 pts.  This is Helen's 10th 4th place finish on Tour, Tim Markel's 30th Top 4 finish and Mike Prieskorn's 60th Top 4 finish. This is Brian's Club's 1st win on Tour in their first start (6th in 65 for Brian). The clubs set new margin of victory and GiR marks in the Fox Hunt and missed the Tour best for Greens in Regulation by 1, which is held by Todd Stuart and Corey McCue.

Cooley Pulls a Triple at the Casino
May 31, 2020 Oakland, Mi

Christopher Cooley scored a 3-peat at the Casino Classic, shooting a 3 under par 68 for a 2 shot win over his perennial Memorial partner Chuck Withey. Helen Puffenburger finished 3rd at even par 71 and Don Ward rolled up his first top 4 finish of year in 4th with a 1 over par 72. Cooley's feat marks only the 5th time in Tour history that a player has won an official event 3 times in a row. The most recent being in the 2011-13 seasons when Samantha Kellstrom won the Ladies Open and Joe Robar won the Western Championship. Prior to that Greg Kline won the Match Play in the mid 2000's Todd Stuart and Mary Taylor won 3 in a row in the Tour's first 3 years. Chris also takes the all-time money lead at the Casino Classic (time to escort him to the door). The win is his 15th in 167 Tour starts which places him 7th on the Tour Win list.

Gregoire Takes Weekend Double Shot from the Cup
May 17, 2020 Superior Twp
Kevin's 8th win
Kevin Gregoire continued his dominating run from the end of last year with his second win of the weekend at the Kowality Golf Tin Cup. He beat the field and a down pour on a cool day with the only sub par score of 2 under par. Chuck Withey was a bridesmaid for the 2nd day in a row with an even par 72 for 2nd place. TW Litzler and Chris Cooley tied for 3rd at 2 over par. Gregoire and Withey lead the field throughout the day and as is usual at Hickory Creek, the penultimate 17th par 3 was pivotal in the outcome with Withey taking a bogey on the hole while Gregoire was able to get thru in par before sealing the deal with a 18th hole birdie. For Gregoire this was his 8th Tour win in 103 starts and the weekend vaults him well into the Tour money lead, ahead of Withey who is a solid 2nd. For Withey this was his 50th top 4 Tour finish while Tom W Litzler garnered his 60th top 4 finish. Litzler is 7th on Tour all-time in Top 4 Finishes while Withey tied Barb Hoelzle for 9th in this category.

Gregoire & McCue take Playoff in Year's First Major
May 16, 2020  Wayne, MI
Gregoire #4 McCue #1
Kevin Gregoire sank a 35 foot putt with 6 feet of break down hill on the 6 extra playoff hole to secure the win for team Gregoire / McCue over 2 time champs Chuck Withey and Chris Cooley. McCue and Gregoire were able to come from behind with birdies on the 15th and 16th holes to tie Withey and Cooley. In the playoff, Cooley aced the first hole to take the early lead, but their team gave it back with a bogey on the 2nd playoff hole. Everyone shot par over the next 8 holes until Gregoire dropped the hammer for the win. Corey secured his first Major win while Gregoire may well have taken over the title of Big Game Hunter from Mike Nicholas with Kevin's 4th major win in less than a year. Three teams finished 1 shot out of the playoff in a tie for third. Those were Willi Hesse and Greg Paddison, bidding to prove it wasn't David Hansen that carried them to their previous Memorial wins, Rick and Tyler Floyd, and Dan Gubachy and Bill Gordon.  Gregoire moves to 2nd in the World Rankings while McCue jumps from 16th to 4th. The wins are Gregoire's 7th and McCue's 5th on Tour in 102 and 68 starts repectively. The event marked Jeff Klipa's Tour leading 350th start. His career began in 2003.

Nievierowski Picks Off Win at Cherry Creek
May 9, 2020 Shelby Twp
John wins 3rd
John Nievierowski navigated a cold and windy Cherry Creek course with 7 birdies and an eagle on Saturday afternoon. But it took a final hole birdie to lock up his 3rd win in only 23 starts on Tour with a 1 under par 71. Kevin Gregoire also birdied the last to secure 2nd at 1 over par. Jeff Pasz and Chuck Withey tied for 3rd for their 10th and 11th third place finishes on Tour.  The win jumps Nievierowski 12 spots up the World Rankings to 19th and makes him the early season Tour money leader. Gregoire moved up one spot to #3 in the World and takes the East Division money lead.

Rick Floyd Sanitizes his round on 18th at
Chelsea Classic

May 3, 2020 Grass Lake
Floyd wins first
Rick Floyd capped a 4 birdie, 3 eagle day with a final hole tap in eagle that was within 6 inches of the year's first albatross. The clutch finish appropriately distanced Floyd from chaser John Nievierowski and clubhouse leader Bill Gordon who finished T-2 at even par to Floyd's 3 under par. Jeff Pasz and Kurt Wilhelm finished T-4 at 1 over par. The win is Rick's 1st in his 3rd season on Tour and 25th start. Kevin Gregoire made a milestone 100th start on Tour after finishing Top 4 yesterday in his 99th.  With the Tour's walking only rules for Covid-19 safety the scores evidenced that many competitors wore down a bit on the back nine in both weekend events, making the winner's finishes all the more special.

Prieskorn Isolates Final Holes at Sparty
May 2, 2020 Auburn Hills
Mike wins 18th
In the first event of the new season in a Covid-19 world, Mike Prieskorn socially distanced himself from the field with a birdie on the 17th and a clutch par on 18 to secure a 1 shot win at the Sparty Classic. His 1 under par 71 edged defending champ Ron Hiestand who led much of the day and came close to taking the coveted Sparty trophy back to home quarantine. Kevin Gregoire finished 1 over par in third and Mike Geisser took 4th at plus 2 on the Fieldstone Golf Club layout that played tougher than usual despite a nice spring day. Prieskorn notched his 18th Tour victory in his 185th start and moved to 2nd in the MT World Rankings. David Martin made his milestone 200th start on tour. Martin's first start on Tour was in the year 2000.

  3. These Tournaments are walking only.  No electric/gas carts to be rented. 
  4. Players are NOT allowed to walk onto the course until 20 MINUTES before their scheduled Tee Time.  You can arrive to the course parking lot before your 20 minute restriction but do not walk onto the course – this means driving range, practice green or clubhouse until 20 minutes before you tee time.  THIS IS VERY CRITICAL. 
  5. Do not congregate at the clubhouse, practice green, driving range or general course area in groups greater then 5 people.  Maintain social distancing of 6 feet.

    1. If the ball is stuck in a foot print on a slope in the bunker and when you repair the bunker the ball rolls down then a player can choose to push the ball into the sand to keep it in the slope or leave the ball at the bottom of the bunker where the ball came to rest.  Again point this out to other players in your group for confirmation and to maintain competitive integrity. 
  8. We will Putt out all putts (except for the normal 3 putt rule).  Please note if a putt hits the pool noodle or part of the cup (upside down) and then rolls up and out of the cup or bounces off the noodle/cup it will be considered a made putt.  It may happen 1 or 2 times during a round depending on how you hit the putt.
  9. Members will print their own Scorecard (email will be sent with the excel spreadsheet and you just enter your player # and the excel scorecard will print your correct scorecard). 
  10. Common Card – at the bottom of your scorecard is a “common card” the person in your group keeping the common card will use the bottom of their scorecard. 
  11. End of the Round – BEFORE YOU TAKE YOUR CLUBS TO THE CAR.  You must complete all scoring duties in RTS (Real Time Scoring) and Common Card.  The final score for all Players in your group must be confirmed in RTS and on the Common Card  
    1. The Member keeping Common Card is responsible for telling the Commissioner that all scores are done and accurate.
    2. Scorecards will NOT be turned in to the Commissioner.  The group member keeping the common card will be responsible for letting the Commissioner know that scores are accurate.

  14. Closest to the Pin  contest – We will not have any Closest to the Pin or Long drive contests in the month of May.  We will instead award 2 gift cards based on random player selection.  The Commissioner will give the each of the 2 winners their $15 Dick’s Sporting Goods Gift card after the round.


Please stay safe and I hope to see all sometime in May.


Any Postponed tournaments will be added back into the schedule as best as can be managed.  We will keep the schedule update to date as changes are made.





Corona Now 4-0 on the Season

Governor Whitmer has extended the stay at home order until April 30, so all four April events are now postponed. They will be rescheduled as soon as courses re-open and we can acquire new dates. Everyone stay safe and practice your short game.

Virus Knocks Us Out of Bounds

On Monday, March 23 Gov Whitmer issued an executive order for Michigan to Shelter In.  I know several golf courses are allowing people to play golf.  As a Tour we see great benefit in being outside and playing golf but we also believe it is important to be good Citizens.  First and foremost we want all of our members to stay safe and healthy.  Please practice social distancing and follow good healthy hygiene/practices if you are out and about.   


With that as the being said.  The Q School events for Saturday April 4th and Sunday April 5th are being postponed.  City of Livonia has closed their golf courses until April 13th.  I will attempt to reschedule the Q School events in the first 2 weeks of the Tour schedule as a 2nd event on a Saturday or Sunday with an afternoon tee time. 


Regarding the opening weekend of Tour Events – Saturday, April 18th and Sunday, April 19th we will work towards playing those events.  Remember to register for those 2 events (Pineview and Sweet 16)  by Thursday, April 9th.  As always I will send out a group email listing the members that have registered on Friday, April 10th


Email entries to:


Please stay Safe and Healthy and I will see you all in April.

Changes on Tap for 2020 Season
January 12, 2020

With the start of the 2020 year I wanted to let you know of some changes for the 2020 Season.  During the last 7 years Jeff Klipa has been the West Commissioner and with the completion of the 2019 Commissioner Cup Jeff announced that he was going to retire as West Commissioner.   Like a Super Bowl winning quarterback Jeff is retiring as Commissioner with a W. Jeff has been a integral part of the league and we will miss his service as Commissioner.  Jeff will continue to play as a member when you see him in the spring thank him for his hard work.  Jeff will retain his ownership and as a Board Member. 


To replace Jeff the Board considered several people to replace him as Commissioner.  After several meeting and interviews we are pleased to announce that Corey McCue is the new West Commissioner.  Corey has been a member for 4 years and will be a great addition to the Commissioners. He will be running the west tournaments and will be the defending commissioner at the Commissioners Cup this year.


The next big change in 2020 is the World Handicap System (WHS) that has been adopted and accepted by all golf governing bodies worldwide.  To summarize the new WHS there are 3 major components to how handicaps are calculated worldwide


  1. Handicaps are based on the best 8 scores out of your last 20 rounds of golf
  2. Handicaps have a governing (limiting) factor that controls handicap calculations – for handicap purposes the WHS will not allow you to post a score (within the handicap system) a score higher then net double bogey.  We allow for a gross quad bogey. We will retain this in our league.
  3. All tee boxes will have their handicaps adjusted for difference between tee box rating and par.  Let me simplify that for all.  The rating for the tee box is usually less than par – that means the course plays easier than par. So if a rating is 69 and par is 72 all the players playing at that tee box will have their handicap reduced by 3 strokes.


What does this mean for the Mulligan Tour.  The MT has been calculating handicaps based on the lowest 3 rounds in the last 6 tournaments.  The handicap is adjusted based on slope and rating. The average of those 3 rounds is multiplied by 80%.  Starting in 2020 the MT will now move to a handicap system of using 5 of your last 10 tournaments.  We opted for 5 of 10 as a better representative a player’s skill and because most players do not play more than 15 tournaments a year.  The 5 of 10 will allow the handicap to cycle through at least once per year.  Additionally we will no longer reduce your handicap by multiplying by 80%.  We will now apply 95% to your handicap.  This will allow most players to see a small bump to your handicap but there will be some that will see a decrease in their handicap because they have a couple of great rounds of golf inside the last 10 tournaments that cycled out based on 3 of 6. 


The other change you will all see during the season will be at tournaments.  Like the WHS we will be adjusting everyone’s handicap by the difference between the rating and par for the tee box they are playing from. During the last 2 years we adjusted handicaps for the Sr Tees and Women Tees for the difference between their tee box rating and the rating for the men’s tee box.  What this means for all players is all players will have their Tournament handicap adjust for the difference between the tee box rating to par.  This will be partially offset by the increase in our handicap calculation (95% instead of 80%).


To manage the handicap calculations we are moving to a new online software – GolfSoftware to calculate and host our handicap system.  I will be sending to each of you the login information to GolfSoftware.  With GolfSoftware


  • You will be able to see all the tournaments played and your scores.  This includes the slope and rating for your tee box.
  • It will show you which 5 tournaments are being used for your handicap calculation
  • Be able to see the handicaps for all members.


To manage all of these changes the Board decided it was necessary to create a handicap czar who will be the main point of control.  This person will make sure the tournaments results are inputted into GolfSoftware and also will calculate the handicaps for each tournament. After several meetings we appointed Brian Lardin as the Point of Control for our new handicap system.  Brian is very familiar with the GolfSoftware programs and system.  We believe this will give us accuracy and consistency we need week to week.


Finally we have decided to scuttle 2 Stick as a tournament.  The attendance by members has been low for the last couple of years.  The Board has decided we will move the Red, White and Blue to a Central Division Tournament (keeping the same tournament format).  The Board is considering other options for the open date in the schedule.  We are looking at a new team event or leave the day open.  If you have any suggestions please offer them to me or any of the other board members – Greg Kline, David Martin, Jeff Klipa, Tom Hoelzle, Bill Gordon, Tom Litzler, Mike Prieskorn and Rich Dunmore.


Spring is not that far away. The Golf Show is March 8-10 and the Mulligan Tour will again have a booth. I will remind all in February and look for volunteers to work the booth for free access and a $20 credit to their account.      


I’m looking forward to a great season for 2020.

Chuck Withey
