The team game was the primary contest today but Mick Smith stole the show. One of lowest rounds in recent memory in a WPGA event. Might have been in a ProAm, Might have been from 6165 yds, but the list of people that have shot 61 in a WPGA event is pretty short. Cheers, Mick

It has been a busy week for the Wisconsin PGA and a big part of that week was the 23rd Wisconsin State Women's Open. The event experienced its first back-to-back-to-back-to-back champion ever.

UW Golfer Tess Hackworthy once again led the way when it was all said done. The Madison native backed up her opening 2-under-par 70 with a 1-under-par 71 on Thursday. Her two round total was good enough to hold off Jenna Peters of Kohler by two shots. Finishing in third place was Mia Seeman of Milton.

A big thank you goes out to event partners - TaylorMade Golf, Vincent Suter, Family Wealth Advisor, Wealth Advisor at Morgan Stanley and Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic for their great support of the event.

Also deserving of plenty of recognition was host site, Stevens Point CC and their membership and staff. The club did a great job of hosting.

Day one of the 23rd Wisconsin State Women's Open at Stevens Point Country Club is in the books. A familiar story line is developing as 3-time defending champion Tess Hackworthy set the pace on day one. Her 2-under-par 70 was good enough to take a one shot lead into the the second and final round. Her steady play featured three birdies and just one bogey. Sitting right behind her is former Butler University golfer Jenna Peters. In third place with a 1-over-par 73 is Mallory Swartz of Franklin. The trio will make up the final group of the day on Thursday and hit the course at 10:30 AM.

Several other top players are in contention just a little further back, and with a good round of golf tomorrow could make a run at the title.

Jim Schuman kept his hot streak going on Monday as he took home the win at the Prestwick Golf Group Classic. His 1-under-par 69 in regulation ended up tying David Roesch. The two individuals were the only players to break par on the very windy day. Each player carded two birdies and just one bogey on their scorecard.

In most cases the two WPGA sharp shooters would play off to determine the victor but this playoff would be short lived. Roesch helped the set the pace for the day as he played in a twosome in just the second group. After posting the impressive score early on Roesch made the decision to honor a prior commitment instead of waiting to see if he would come out on top. The decision would lead to Schuman winning by the playoff by default.

The win for Schuman comes on the heels of qualifying for his third straight U.S. Senior Open this past Friday.

A big thank you goes out to Prestwick Golf Group and their representatives for supporting Monday's event and Watertown Country Club for being a gracious host.

The WPGA started their week off on a high note on Monday with the playing of the 4th edition of the Trappers Turn Golf Club Pro-Am. The day featured some great weather, a well conditioned golf course, welcome gifts, a top notch purse and a fantastic food spread.

Grabbing the win in the one net / one gross best ball event was the group of Tim Grogan, Mike Maryarski, Jeff Anderson and Dave Bednarski. They carded a 13-under-par 131, good enough to win by one shot over the Bisbee's Golf Center squad.

In the low pro game it was Evan Wartgow with a 1-under-par 71. Wartgow was the only player to break par and for his efforts he was able to take home a cool $1,000.

A big part of the day was the effort Trappers Turn Golf Club and their staff put in. The club did another great job of going way beyond the normal call of hosting.

The WPGA would also like to express our appreciation to Premier Golf & Utility Vehicles, Inc., Tito's Handmade Vodka, Coca-Cola and Under Armour for their gracious support of the day.

We are playing catch up after a busy start to the week.

On Monday the WPGA finally got their pro-am season underway with the Cobra Puma Oneida Pro-Am. The original start of the pro-am season was supposed to be in late April but Mother Nature had other plans, and the event at Beloit Club had to be postponed until July.

The sold out of field of 128 players were happy to help kick off the year. The day featured the always fun Oneida Golf & Country Club layout, some great food, a nice package of tee gifts and plenty of contests where players could claim a prize.

Coming out on top in the main two net best ball contest was the foursome of Ryan Helminen, Scott Merzlicker, Bob Mandoli and Chris Lindberg. The squad was able to card a 15-under-par 129 to win by three.

In addition to the team contest Helminen was also able to win the low pro event with a 3-under-par 69.

A big thank you goes out to Paul Minz and Cobra Golf / PUMA Golf for their support of the day. The WPGA also would like to express its appreciation to Oneida Golf & Country Club for doing a great job of hosting.

The second day of the WPGA Match Play Championship came to a close on Tuesday at West Bend Country Club. In its second year the new modified format featured a qualifying round and the 1st round of matches on Monday. Then players completed their second and third round of matches on Tuesday. In the end a group of eight strong players were left to battle it out for the Championship. Those eight players will now branch off and have approximately 5 weeks to complete each of the remaining rounds. A champion will be crowned by the final match deadline of September 2nd.

Leading the way since Monday morning has been #1 seed David Roesch. The 4-time champion posted the low qualifying round even though he was already the #1 seed as the defending champ. The #1 seed then proceeded to win his next two matches 7&6. However his third round match turned out to be a battle til the end as Jake Wisniewski took him 19 holes.

Also playing some great golf and punching their ticket to the quarters was Joe Leonard, Kurt Mantyla, Ryan Helminen, Mick Smith, Eddie Terasa, Jamie Christianson and Adam Miller.

The WPGA would like to thank Harris Golf Cars, Cutter & Buck and The PGA TOUR for their continued support, and also West Bend Country Club for hosting the past two days.
