Jordan Invited to 2022 Michigan Open
Updated: Jul 11, 2021
Jordan continues to make positive strides this summer with his game. In mid-June, Jordan competed in the Michigan Open for the first time. The tournament was hosted at The Bear at Grand Traverse Resort & Spa outside of Traverse City, Michigan. The Jack Nicklaus design opened for play in 1984 and had one of the highest course and slope ratings in the country at one point. Currently, The Bear ranks as one of the 100 best public golf courses in the country by Golf Digest. In the first four-day event of his career, Jordan finished tied for 20th in a field of 156 amateurs and professionals from across the state. His play was highlighted by a third-round, 4 under par 68. The top-20 finish led to an automatic invitation to compete in next year's Michigan Open.
The following week Jordan competed in a Pre Qualifier for the PGA Tour's Rocket Mortgage Classic. The event took place at TPC Michigan in Dearborn. After a slow beginning to his round, Jordan played the last 11 holes 4 under and bogey free to miss out on the Monday Qualifier by one stroke. A couple of days after the qualifier, Jordan was announced as a member of the Mid Eastern Athletic Conference Men's Golf 50th Anniversary All-Time Team. The list included the best golfers to play at schools in the conference since its inception in 1971. While in college, Jordan posted the fifth and fourth lowest rounds in the conferences history.

The next tournament on the schedule for Jordan is the APGA Tour event at TPC Deere Run on July 19 and 20. A great test of golf awaits as the event will take place the week after the PGA's John Deere Classic. We will continue with more updates in the coming weeks.
