National Car Rental Double Dip Pro-Am Delivers Another Berry Good Time
A cool and windy summer day delivered quite the challenge on Monday as this year's National Car Rental Double Dip Pro-Am ventured south to The Club at Strawberry Creek in Kenosha. Twenty eight foursomes from throughout Wisconsin were attempting to go low as they were tested by elements and the Rick Jacobson layout. Sponsored by National Car Rental, the Official Rental Car of The PGA of America, Monday’s event brought together a sold out field for the sixth straight National Car Rental Pro-Am in the Wisconsin Section.
Along with the great support from National Car Rental, the day featured the very popular double dip theme. For every foursome that signed up, their team was entered in both a 2 net best ball competition, and then the professional was paired up with each amateur on their team in a 1 of 2 net best ball event.View More
