April 30th, 2014

After finishing in a tie for 23rd at the 25th Southworth Senior PGA Professional National Championship, Bill Schumaker of Crooked Lake GC surpassed Dave Carich of The Bridgewater Club in the 2013 Indiana PGA Senior Player of the Year point standings.

Schumaker started off the 2013 tournament season with a victory at The Sagamore GC in the first Indiana PGA Tournament series event. He fired a 2-under-par 70, which was enough for a two shot win over Brett Melton of the Country Club of Old Vincennes.

Schumaker had eight top ten finishes during the 2013 tournament season, including a runner-up finish at the Indiana PGA Northern Open at Briar Ridge CC, with an impressive round of 5-under-par 67. He also finished second in the Indiana PGA Four Man Team, along with partners Sam Till Jr., Skip Runnels, and his son Mike.

Schumaker was inducted into the Indiana Golf Hall of Fame in 91 and now claims his 16th Indiana Section Player of the Year title, making him one of the most accomplished players in the history of golf in Indiana. His ten senior championships are joined with six wins in the regular division.
