Max Kollin will Attend The Big 10's Indiana Univ.
    



     Just as professional golf tours have Monday qualifiers, so does the American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) and Michigan prep amateurs are crowding the field after today's play. The Boyne Highlands Coca-Cola Championships being held at the Moor course has added eight boys and two girls and Preston Dooley of Novi, and Ryan Puruski of Milan carded one over 73's to finish in a tie for second place. They will be joined by Adam Firavich of Hartland (74) and James Kneen of White Lake (75).

   But medalist honors for the one day qualifier was Varun Chopra of Champaign, Ill., who carded an even-par 72 to head off all challengers. In all, seven of the spots went to Michigan players. James Kneed (75) of White Lake, Spencer Schab (75) of Grand Rapids and Manak Singh (75) of Troy napped the remaining spots coming in at three over par.

Their work is just starting.

With top players from Max Kollin (Farmington Hills-Indiana) Henry Do (Ypsilanti) and many medalists across the MHSAA ranks participating, the buzz saw will start on Tuesday and continue for three days with the tournament concluding after 54 holes of grueling golf.
