The Steve Tyler GKGA Match Play Playoffs honors a PGA Club Professional that served the Kalamazoo golf community from 1993 to 2012. As a player, he captained his Hackett Catholic Central High School golf team and went on to play for Colorado State University. He earned his PGA Class A professional classification working for Dick Stewart at Kalamazoo Country Club in 1993 and served as head professional at The Moors Golf Club, The Prairies and Milham Park Golf Course during his career. Steve also coached the Kalamazoo College Men’s Golf Team from 2004 to 2011 and enjoyed conducting the Kalamazoo Junior Golf Association clinics.

Steve was passionate about people, friends and golf. He had the unique ability to put a smile on your face and to make you feel welcomed. His stories and kind demeanor will keep him in the hearts of all the people he knew. Steve lost a battle with cancer at the young age of 47. Steve loved match play, so it is fitting that the GKGA Match Play Playoffs bears his name.
