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.
