Ferris State University alumnus Scott Hebert, also an accomplished former collegiate golfer for the Bulldogs, won his fifth Michigan PGA Championship, with a victory at Eagle Eye Golf Course, as he shot a five-under 67 in the final round on Wednesday, Aug. 31.
It was the fifth time in six years that Hebert has won the championship. The head golf professional at Grand Traverse Resort won the title for four straight years, beginning in 2006, before finishing in fifth place in 2010. This year, however, Hebert emerged as the first-place finisher to claim $6,500 of the $48,000 purse as he shot 68-68-67—203 in the three-round tournament based in the Lansing area.
Hebert, a native of Escanaba, was officially enshrined into the Upper Peninsula Sports Hall of Fame as a 2011 inductee.
Hebert (B’92) earned a degree from Ferris in Professional Golf Management.
