The WPGA Match Play Championship came to a close on Friday afternoon. After nearly three months of play it was time to crown a champion. Friday featured both the semifinals and final match taking place at The Legend at Merrill Hills.

Coming out on top after navigating his way through the 64-player bracket was Austin Gaugert. The Lake Geneva native rode a solid short game to victory on Friday. In the morning he defeated Kurt Mantyla 2&1. His finals match would pit him against Joe Leonard, as Leonard was able to take down defending champion Jim Schuman in 20 holes in the morning session.

In the finals Gaugert would continuously shut the door every time it looked like he was going to give Leonard a break. Over the course of the day he'd get up and down exactly when he needed to. He'd rattle off 13 straight pars until a final conceded birdie on no. 18. The winning margin proved to be 2up.

For Gaugert it marked the biggest golfing victory of his career.

A big thank you goes out to Bushnell Golf and the PGA TOUR for their support of the event. The WPGA would also like to recognize Geneva National Resort and The Legend Clubs for hosting portions of the event.

Another WPGA Professional Championship came to a close on Tuesday afternoon. This go around featured the senior professionals in the section crowning their champion.

Amazingly the day featured a similar theme to the assistants, which found their stroke play champion just a day earlier. Both events produced a low score of 6-under-par 138, featured a come from behind winner, and had a big playoff birdie be the deciding factor.

After 36 holes of play the trio of Kurt Mantyla, John Freeman and Michael Crowley would tie at the top. With some extra golf on tap to see who would be named the champion the group headed to the par-5 1st. In the end Mantyla would deliver the clinching birdie. After finding the the front bunker in two, he would execute a nice sand shot and roll in a six foot birdie putt for the win. For Crowley and Freeman their chances to tie would just not drop.

Although only one winner was crowned, the entire threesome was able to earn a spot into the National Senior PGA Professional Championship in October in Florida.

The WPGA would like to thank Cadillac, Hornung's Golf Products, The PGA TOUR, John Deere and Golf Channel for their support of the event. In addition the the section would like to express our appreciation to Morningstar Golfers Club for hosting.

The National Car Rental Wisconsin Assistant PGA Professional Championship came to a close early on Monday evening. With warm, sunny, and relatively benign conditions, it turned out to be quite an exciting day with plenty of birdies to go around over the course of the 36-hole day.

Coming out on top with a playoff win was former Cardinal Stritch golfer Joaquin Diaz. The North Shore Country Club assistant professional was able to defeat David Bach in a one-hole playoff. He earned the win by knocking it to three feet and sinking the birdie putt. Both Diaz and Bach tied at 6-under-par 136 in regulation to force a playoff.

The duo will meet again in November as each will represent the Wisconsin Section at the National PGA Assistant Professional Championship in Florida.

A big thank you goes out to National Car Rental, Hornung's Golf Products, Cleveland Golf / Srixon / XXIO / ASICS and John Deere for their support of the event.

The WPGA would also like to recognize and thank Morningstar Golfers Club for hosting.
