HIGHLAND TOWNSHIP – Jeff Bronkema of Wayland made five consecutive birdies on the back nine in a 6-under 66 at Prestwick Village Wednesday to take the lead heading into the final round of the 99th Michigan Open Championship presented by LaFontaine Automotive Group.

“I scraped it around the front and couldn’t get anything going and then something clicked and I hit it to six-feet on 13, inside three feet on 14 and 15, made a 40-footer downhill for birdie on 16 and about a 20-footer for birdie on 17,” said the 27-year-old Plainwell native and mini-tour professional who finished second to Jeff Cuzzort in last year’s Michigan Open.

“I’m excited to get going tomorrow and finish one spot higher.”
