Hard to believe we are just two hours away from 8 inches of snow. Lady luck was on our side today. Little cool, little breezy but not bad at Edelweiss Chalet CC. @harrisgolfcars @HaasJordanUMB

Monday marked another great pro-pro for the WPGA. A nice field of 96 WPGA professionals gathered at Abbey Springs to tee it up in the Callaway Golf Spring Pro-Pro Better Ball.

In the end it was the duo of Craig Czerniejewski and Mick Smith running away with the title. Their 9-under-par 63 was good enough to win by four shots over Tom Burton and Kraig Joy. With their win they also captured the #1 seed in the Four-Ball Match Play.

A big thank you goes out to Abbey Springs for hosting and Callaway Golf, Bushnell Golf and AfterShokz for sponsoring.

Lady luck was on the side of the Wisconsin PGA yesterday as we were just in the right spot to make sure we were able to get in the season opening Spring Pro-Pro Scramble. Throughout the past week the snow stayed away and Edelweiss Chalet Country Club was able to play to host to a great day.

In the 2-player scramble format it was Andy Barrett and Brett Weber coming out on top. They defeated Brook Schmitt and Tom Boockmeier on the first playoff hole to get the win.

A big thank you goes out to Edelweiss Chalet CC for hosting and Harris Golf Cars & Haas-Jordan Umbrellas for supporting the event.

Some breezy and cool weather was not enough to deter everyone from enjoying day one of the WPGA Las Vegas Pro-Am. Group A kicked off their golf with a trip to always impressive Cascata Golf Course, while Group B ventured to the other side of town by traveling to Bear's Best Las Vegas.

Leading the way after day one in Group A is the Austin Gaugert Hidden Glen Golf Club team. They carded a 22-under 122 in the 2 net format to win by 3. On the other side it was the Derek Schnarr Blackhawk Country Club, Madison WI squad with an 18-under-134 in the 1,2,3 net best ball format. Good enough for a one shot win.

Day two will send Group A to Rio Secco Golf Club, while Group B heads to Cascata Golf Course.
