Lilleboe is a former NCAA Division II All American, playing out of Ferris State University. Lilleboe has competed on the Michigan Players Tour since 2014, and won the 2018 Michigan Players Tour Order of Merit, collecting 4 victories, and setting a Tour scoring record of 66.25 strokes (4 rounds).

Mudd Wins Tour Championship

Posts 75 In Clear and Cool Conditions, Wins By 3

September 22, 2018

Patrick Mudd
It took the entire season....but finally, on the very last day of summer, the idyllic weather we have all been waiting for arrived, and with it, ideal scoring conditions.

And yet, the difficulty of Buck’s Run G.C. in Mt. Pleasant quickly became apparent at the 2018 Michigan Players Tour Championship.

And in the end, the best score anyone could manage was a 3 over par 75 by Patrick Mudd of Crown Point, Indiana, a score which beat Nicholas Symonds of Eau Claire and Spenser Fisher of Lansing by 3 shots.

At 6,914 yards, Buck’s Run G.C. is not the longest course on the Tour, but with a collection of holes that are among the most demanding in the entire state, it played as the toughest. The par 3s, in particular, each require a carry over water to small undulating greens, and there are several holes with water in play on both the drive and approach. The 18th hole, a 469 yard par 4, may be the most difficult finishing hole in the entire state.

The round was played under sunny blue skies, a temperature of 62°, and calm winds.
