Monday's Local Sports Coverage (6/24)

Posted: Updated:

THOMPSONVILLE -- Greg Miller spent all of Monday at Crystal Mountain Resort for round one of the Michigan Women's Open.  Last year's champion, Katie Burnett, not attending this year so we are guaranteed to have a new winner in 2013.  After day one, Milena Savich (-4) sits atop the leaderboard with 27 golfers within five shots of the lead. 

Amatuer Lindsey McPherson and Rachael Schmidt are just one shot back at three-under. 

We'll have continuing coverage from Crystal Mountain throughout the week until a new champion is crowned on Wednesday.

Crystal Mountain Resort is hosting the annual Michigan Women's Open for the 11th year.  This year's event features 87 golfers -- 39 of them amatuers and 41 are Michigan residents.
