RESULTS: 2023 NOPGA Pro-Pro Better Ball + MPQ

After a heavy mist lifted to sunshine and blue skies, low scores started to roll in at Firestone Country Club’s South Course. The team of brothers, Steve Stone (54) and Mike Stone (51), fired 62 (-8) to blitz the field by four strokes after making nine birdies and a bogey to win the NOPGA Pro-Pro.

“Firestone is always keen to our eye. We always enjoy Firestone and the course sets up great for our game. We love coming here to play” voiced Steve Stone.

With the win, Mike and Steve secure the #2 seed in the Season Long Match Play Championship. Defending champions Dennis Miller and Mark Evans have the top seed.

Finishing in a tie for second place were the sides of Kevin Sullivan + Gary Rusnak and Chris Capriolo + Scott Siler, who shot 66 (-4).

Today’s event was sponsored by Bridgestone (Michael Connor), Tagmarshal, AndersonOrd, PTE Golf, and Homestretch Golf.

The next stop on the Northern Ohio PGA tournament schedule is Monday, May 15th for the first Club Car/Pepsi Stroke Play Series event of the year at Lakewood Country Club in Westlake.
