May 5 is World Hickory Golf day!
This is Michigan perfect weather golf!

A magnificent spring day found the Michigan Hickory Tour playing it’s first event of the season at Ella Sharp Park in Jackson on World Hickory Golf Day…the MHT Matchplay. Players in four groups played three 6 hole matches within their group to determine group winners… Lloyd Slinglend, Keith Pinchback, Joe Bodnar and Bob Bieszka. won the groups. The four winners chipped off on the practice green to determine an overall winner…Lloyd Slinglend with a 40 foot ship stopping 18″ beyond the hole won the day. Congrats Lloyd. A great dinner at the Hunt club followed where the MHT got to know new members Xander Dobreff, Ryan Matthews and Jeff Brown. Leaving the restaurant at sunset, everyone vowed to see each other again in two weeks at the Marshall Hickory Open.

Kudos to Jim Hannen for a great event!
