BOYNE VALLEY TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — Andy Ruthkoski has shot a 1-over 73 and won the Tournament of Champions at Boyne Mountain Resort by one stroke.
The golfer from Muskegon finished the three rounds Wednesday at 13-under 203 to win the event for the second consecutive year.
Runner-up Bob Ackerman of Commerce Township shot a final-round 69, but his 35-foot birdie putt on the final hole wasn't enough.
The 31-year-old Ruthkoski shot 64 and 66 in the first two rounds and took a five-shot lead into the final round.
The resort is in Charlevoix County's Boyne Valley Township, about 40 miles northeast of Traverse City.
