The long time Huntington Country Club head professional followed an outstanding career locally with an impressive decade on the PGA Senior Tour. Joyce won the 1981 Treiber Memorial, the 1982 Long Island Open and the 1983 Long Island PGA Championship. Prior to moving onto the Senior Tour, he captured another LIPGA title in 1988 and the 1989 Met PGA Seniors Championship. His Senior Tour career was launched in 1989, but really thrived in 1991 through 1996 when he averaged almost 20 events a year including his two most successful seasons, 1992 and 1993 when he played 29 and 36 events respectively. In 1992 he became a first time winner on the Senior PGA Tour at the GTE Northwest Classic. That year included 4 top 10 finishes and he followed that in 1993 with two more top 10ís. Michael served as head professional at Huntington for 26 years before moving full time to the Senior Tour in the early 90ís.
