ALMONT — Former Almont High School standout Gavin DePauw, a 2015 graduate, earned a spot among the field at the upcoming Michigan Open Golf Tournament.
The event is scheduled for August 30 through September 3 in Traverse City.

DePauw earned the right to compete there with a strong performance at a Michigan Open qualifier on Friday, August 7.
Playing at Spring Meadows Country Club in Linden, DePauw posted a 73 for his 18-hole round. That left him in a three-way tie for eighth among the field assembled.
There were 10 available qualifying spots on the line that day.
A total of 32 players competed.
