Golfweek National Pro Tour Scheduled to Return to Firekeeper in 2013

MAYETTA:  Golfweek National Pro Tour event planners were so pleased with last week’s  Firekeeper Tradition tournament held at Firekeeper Golf Course that they plan to come back next year in June 2013.

The tournament concluded last Friday and was won by Matt Miller, Bloomington, Illinois, who took home a $20,000 purse.  This week the tour is in Windy City, Arizona.

Full results of the tournament can be found at  www.nationalprotour.com and for feature articles written by Topeka Capital-Journal’s Sports Editor Kevin Haskin, about the week go to  http://cjonline.com/sports/2012-05-25/late-charge-propels-miller-firekeeper
