Welcome to Tom Werkmeister golf.

Tom played good today! He missed a couple putts, but not because he putted bad...they just didn’t go in.
When there are only 4 scores out of 30 that are over par, you know it’s a strong field! I’m proud of the way he played. -3 is a good score. Had you told me before we played that it would be T9, I’d have laughed. But that’s why these guys are here; they’re that good!
We’re on our way to Victoria, BC on the first part of our trip through Canada on our way to Calgary for the next qualifier a week from today. I’m excited for this part of our trip & while we’re both disappointed he didn’t qualify today, we’re looking forward to a little mini-vacay; just the 2 of us. ❤️ ... See MoreSee Less

Now for the announcement:
Due to work obligations (read: a VERY successful golf course), Mike Boogaard is going to step back from caddying for Tom. As is understandable, he’s most busy at his golf course (The Pines) on weekends - when Tom would need him most. He will still coach Tom (thank GOD), he just can’t be available on short notice to take off for a week/weekend to caddy.
Our son-in-law Ryan is also busy with his new career as a realtor so while we hope he can still serve as backup, he wasn’t an option for primary caddy as his weekends are also his busiest time. Not to mention the fact that he has a new baby on the way, our first grand baby!
So we asked John Seltzer (former pro at Blythefield CC, now successful self-employed golf instructor) if he would be interested in filling the spot of primary caddy...and to our delight he said he would! We’re so thankful to have him - I think he & Tom will make an outstanding team! John will (hopefully) make his debut out West should Tom qualify in WA or Calgary.

Mike is a great guy...wishing him well..and continued success to Mr. Werkmeister!
Tom Disappointed I didn’t get the call! Must be to old @ 57 years old. Would love to fill in here in Florida if needed. Past West Michigan Champion. Lol
Go team Tom and John! That is awesome!

Wow That is awesome!

So this week didn’t go so well in Boyne. Once again Tom had problems putting on Monday - but with some help from good friend (and PGA Pro at Gull Lake CC) Daniel A. Urban Jr. he was able to get straightened out a bit for Tuesday. His +1 round that day was mostly a result of leaving himself above the pin (which is a no-no on the Monument course at Boyne). He rallied today with -5 at the Alpine course but it was just too little, too late.
Next up is a Monday qualifier in New York on Aug 12th - so he finally gets to be home for a bit! I expect there will be some time spent with Mike Boogaard during this down period. 😊 ... See MoreSee Less
Sorry to hear about Monday but awesome round on Tuesday Tom!! I hope to see Mike on September 7th . We have a big outing at The Pines ! Is he on Tom’s bag that weekend?
I’m thinking if it’s a “mountain” course it would be better to be below the hole. But that’s just my Wiley golf coach skills surfacing again, I can’t stop it, it’s a gift/curse
As a former national golf swing fixer, sometimes with putting it's just a simple pitter change. Putting is confidence; not necessarily a swing problem. 15% of the time it is a stroke issue, but a putter change can be the difference. Just FYI.
Good luck Tom Werkmeister. Thanks for the update Leslie Werkmeister
Putting is all about confidence....you can help him with this

The Alpine's 18th Hole Awaits the 28th TOURNAMENT OF CHAMPIONS
The Tournament of Champions starts Monday morning at 8 a.m. on the Alpine Course at Boyne Mountain Resort.
The 18th at Alpine usually figures as a factor in the championship, and often the title is decided on the par 5 with the pond protecting the green.
Did you know that all the Boyne-built courses in Michigan have a signature pond at No. 18. Think about it? The Heather, The Donald Ross, The Arthur Hills, The Monument, all finish with the possibility of a slash down.

So you’d think Tom would come back from Europe & chill for a bit, right? Wrong. As soon as he knew he didn’t make the Open Championship, he called & secured his spot in the Tournament of Champions being held on Monday & Tuesday at Boyne Mountain! He left this morning to play in the 2-day Pro-Am tomorrow & Saturday.
It’s crazy how much he loves this game...I suppose it’s a good thing he’s actually good at it!
I’ll post information on the tournament on Sunday night. ... See MoreSee Less
Putt putts time ?
If he needs an “Am”, I’m 3 hours away at the moment, and headed to Ludington
Go get em Tom!!
Trooper. Go get em Tom!
You can WERK it! Hope the jet lag doesn't kick in🤩
I thought he might stop for some popcorn
Good for Tom! Now is the time to keep it going. Everything is going to come together real soon. Then it’s “Katie bar the door!” Win the tournament Tom.
Go get em Tom

Luv u babe Great try
Some pictures from yesterday. I’ll post some videos in the comments too. I still can’t believe how windy it was! The scores started to drop in the pm because the wind starting letting up. ... See MoreSee Less
It’s hard to play golf when you can’t putt...hopefully he can figure something out on the back 9 or we’ll be home tomorrow. 😢
Dennis Hendershot played REALLY well this morning though! ... See MoreSee Less
Great back 9!!
And if those are the front scores I don’t see anyone else tearing it up ?? Grind it out T 👍👍
I see Jerry Sturm made the trip as well. I am assuming that is the front 9 score ?
Interesting to see (2) players DQ'ed already....
You got this Tom, good luck and have fun!
Matches for Monday ... See MoreSee Less
A bit windy (meaning hold on to your hat)...but the consensus from the players is this course is amazing! No room for error though...fairway bunkers are X as is the fescue.
I haven’t walked it yet...I’m doing some sightseeing instead. ... See MoreSee Less
Enjoy every bit of that trip Leslie! Most people don’t ever see what you are seeing !
How have the practice rounds gone? Almost a different game as to the golf coarse’s there!! 😂
Looks to be a chill in the air as well
It’s a good day to play golf! ... See MoreSee Less
