The 2019 Deyak Classic was held at Pontiac Country Club on October 6, 2019
Named for longtime USGA Amateur Public Links Committeeman Frank Deyak, the Deyak Classic is the season ending championship contested between the MIPUBLINX Net and Senior divisions. Contestants are chosen based on their performance in the seasons five scheduled Championship Series stroke play tournaments.
The Deyak Classic is contested annually at the "Home of the Publinx", Pontiac Country Club, in the month of September. The tournament pits the best 8 players during the year in the Net and Senior divisions against each other. Although the field is small, the competition is fierce as the season ending event proclaims the Mipublinx Division champions.
Net and Senior competitors are chosen based on total accumulated honor roll point values earned throughout the year. Players who maintain a high standard of play throughout the year are rewarded with a chance to play. One or two top 3 finishes will usually secure a place in the field, but several lead changes occur in the point standings throughout the season.
The Deyak Classic is a fun day of competition and is hosted by one of the finest family's in the golf industry. The Mipublinx Board of Directors wishes to thank, Pontiac Country Club, the Syron family and the members of the Mipublinx Golf Association for their continued participation and support.
