    Five Michigan men taking their shot in U.S. Senior Amateur at CC of Detroit


    For several years recently, Clarkston’s Mark Eriksen has been referred to around town as the best golfer who never practiced. He rarely found the time, with all his kids growing up playing sports, including football, soccer, and track and field, with three kids going on to play sports in college.

    Finally, it’s Dad’s turn to get back into the competitive athletics arena.

    “That’s exactly right,” Eriksen said, with a laugh.

    Eriksen will be among the 156 players who tee it up in this week’s U.S. Senior Amateur, which is being held at the Country Club of Detroit in Grosse Pointe Farms.

    Eriksen is one of four Michigan residents in the field, along with Chris Chocola of Harbor Springs, Tom (Walter) Gieselman of Commerce Township, Jerry Gunthorpe of Ovid and Rick Herpich of Orchard Lake. Two rounds of stroke play are set for Saturday and Sunday, with the low 64 moving to match play, which concludes with the 18-hole championship match Thursday, Sept. 2.
