About this tournament

Welcome to the 1st annual Michigan Professional State Championships

Just so everyone is informed, this year there is NO BERTH REQUIREMENT to register for this event. Berths are only being awarded only for the Amateur Championships. This year since we are hosting Pros separately, we are proud to award both the male and female Amateur State Champions(advanced divisions) free entries into the Michigan Professional State Championships. If the date for AM states is moved to after Pro states due to COVID-19, the 2020 winners along with the 2021 winners will both receive free entry into the 2021 Professional Tournament. This year also, there will be NO SKINS MATCH following the last round. However, there will be a Finals round. Details below

Each pool will be capped at 96 players. If FPO and Pro Masters do not exceed 96 players combined, they will become a combined pool. MPO will be its own pool. Each pool will play courses listed below in this order

Combined FPO/Masters pool
MPO- Sanford, Sanford, Freeland
FPO/Masters- Freeland, Freeland, Midland
Finals for all pools will be at Freeland after Round 3

IF FPO/Masters exceeds 96 players combined
MPO- Midland, Sanford, Freeland
FPO- Sanford, Freeland, Midland
