This past Monday the WPGA concluded its pro-am season with the Oliphant Golf Management Pro-Am Championship. The day brought together 29 teams to enjoy the Links Course at The Golf Courses of Lawsonia.

Although the wind would provide quite the challenge, the day brought plenty of sunshine, a great playing field, and lots of camaraderie.

Coming out on top with the win was the group of Brian Brodell, Martin Bonneson, John Lukas and Nick Vangrinsven. They were able to pile up 144 points in the team net stableford contest. Their total was good enough to win by 8 points.

Earning the top spot in the low pro game was Andy Hansen of University Club of Milwaukee. He posted 49 points, which included 8 birdies. On the senior side it was John Freeman and Michael Crowley tying for first place.

A big thank you goes out to Oliphant Golf Management and The GC's of Lawsonia for putting together a great day.

Wednesday marked the conclusion of the 54th WPGA Match Play Championship. After rain washed out the original two days of the event in May, qualifying took place on June 8 at the Hornung's Classic. A 32 player bracket was formulated from the scores that day. The next three rounds would take place over the course of three months. Players would play the rounds on their own until the final four was set. To help wrap up the event on time the final four would gather at Hidden Glen Golf Club on Wednesday to determine a winner.

Making their way to the final four were John Freeman, Ryan Helminen, Chad Sandee and Jim Schuman. In the AM session it would be Helminen taking down Sandee by a count of 3&2 and Schuman would would earn the win 1up over Freeman.

The stage was set for two of top players in the Section to battle it out in the finals. Jim Schuman and Ryan Helminen would be facing off in the finals for the first time.

It would turn out be a great back and forth match amidst some very difficult conditions. It would take 22 holes of play to find a winner. In the end it would be Schuman outlasting Heminen. To conclude the match the Madison native would knock it to four feet on the par 3 4th. It was a day full of rain, wind, cold temperatures, birdies, an unexpected eagle and plenty of clutch putts.

It is Schuman's 7th WPGA Match Play Championship.

A big thank you goes out to Harris Golf Cars, Bushnell Golf & the PGA TOUR for sponsoring the year-long event and Hidden Glen GC for hosting the final day.

The WPGA got back on the tournament train on Monday as the Fall Pro-Pro Better Ball traveled to Pleasant View Golf Club. A field of 34 two-player teams looked to take home the title in a one better ball of two format.

Tackling the Woods & Lake courses the best was a trio of teams. It would be Andy Hansen / Austin Schloesser, Craig Czerniejewski / Mick Smith and Doug Mortola / Mark Voeller coming out on top with 6-under-par 65s. All three teams were able to go bogey free on the way to being named co-champions.

Grabbing some of the headlines of the day was Michael Crowley. The Morningstar Golfers Club head PGA professional carded a hole-in-one on the tough 202 yard par-3 no. 4 on the lake course.

A big thank you goes out to Harris Golf Cars, Bushnell Golf and Yamaha Golf & Utility for supporting the event and Pleasant View Golf Course for hosting.

This past Monday the Wisconsin PGA wrapped up the regular season pro-am schedule with a trip to Janesville CC. It was a nice day for golf and the players were able to enjoy some great playing conditions at one of the oldest country clubs in the State.

Finding their way to the winner's circle was the squad of Craig Czerniejewski, Craig Podlesnik, Tim Halverson and Dave Halverson. They were able to post a 13-under-par 139 in the 1,2,3 net best ball game. The score was good enough to win by two shots over the Matt Goodson led Hawks Landing team.

In the low pro game it would be Czerniejewski leading the way along with Andy Hansen of the University Club of Milwaukee. The two professionals were the only two players to break par as they each carded 2-under-par 70s. In the low senior professional event it would be Michael Crowley on top with an even-par 72.

A big thank you goes out to Janesville CC for being a gracious host.
