JEFF AUSTRENG WINS $5,000 FIRST PRIZE IN INAUGURAL MICHIGAN STATE MASTERS
Jeff Austreng of Waterford Township won the inaugural Michigan State Masters at Royal Scot Lanes in Lansing Sunday when he defeated Mason Brantley of Detroit 418-391 to win the $5,000 first prize and the title. Brantley settled for the second place check of $2,500.
