A DANDY Performance
The opening event of the 2011 WAGPA tournament season was held Tuesday at The Legend at Bergamont in Oregon. Twenty-Six WPGA apprentices, pre-apprentices and A-8 members teed it up in search of the first place plaque.
Conquering the cold weather and the challenging layout the best, was Andy Podolak of Fire Ridge GC. On a day where birdies were a tough commodity, Podolak was able to make six of them en route to his 2-over-par 74 total.View More
Windy West Bend Wins Again
Another cool and windy day left players battling for pars at West Bend CC on Monday. The conditions left the course as the unanimous winner when it was all said and done. However a few teams and individuals posted some great scores to persevere their way to the top.
Posting the winning number of 10-under-par 134 was the Yahara Hills GC group of Adam Steinhofer, Scott Dybevik, Bruce Myslis and Tony Wampole. With conditions similar to last season the group somehow managed to beat last year's winning score by six shots. The title was hard fought though as they were only able to squeak out a win by one shot.View More
