FLINT, MI -- Scott Brotebeck of Grand Blanc will be right at home in next week's 97th Michigan PGA Professional Championship at Flint Golf Club.

Brotebeck is the head professional at Flint GC and is among six Flint-area players in the field of 127 golfers entered in the 54-hole tournament, which begins Monday morning.

Joining Brotekbeck in the field will be Boyd Barth of the Flint Elks Club, Reed Black of Spring Meadows, Denis Husse of Tyrone Hills, Jack Seltzer of Linden and Steve Wakulsky of Owosso Country Club.

Seltzer won the tournament in 1988.

Defending champion John Seltzer III -- Jack's son -- is no stranger to FGC either.

Although he's now the head pro Blythefield Country Club near Grand Rapids, Seltzer grew up in Grand Blanc and is a former Flint City Amateur champion.

This is the second straight year FGC is hosting the $54,000 tournament.

There are 13 former champion in the field, a group headed by eight-time winner Scott Hebert of Traverse City Golf and Country Club and four-time champ Jeff Roth of Boyne Highlands, who is a former FGC head pro.

The other former champions are two-time winners Steve Brady of Oakland Hills and Barry Redmond of Crooked Tree as well as Dan Urban of Gull Lake CC, Ron Beurmann of Country Club of Jackson, Joe Pollack of Golf Cars Plus, Tom Harding of Kendall Golf Academy, John Traub of Berkley and Randy Erskine of Rochester.

The field will be cut to the low 60 scores after Tuesday's second round.

The top nine finishers will earn spots in the national club pro championship April 28-May 1 in South Carolina. As former champions of the national club pro tourney, Hebert and Roth are exempt from qualifying.

The top 20 finishers at the national club pro will earn exemptions into the 2019 PGA Championship at Bethpage Black in New York.

Admission to the Michigan PGA is free.

Pairings and results can be found on the Michigan PGA website.
