The 99th Morgan Stanley Wisconsin State Open presented by Vincent Suter, Family Wealth Advisor, Wealth Advisor at Morgan Stanley and supported by TaylorMade Golf, came to a closer on Wednesday evening.

The 36 hole finale on the Trevino Course at Geneva National Resort was action packed with plenty of birdies and drama down the stretch. The story of the day continued to be Beaver Dam native Dan Woltman. He kept his hot play going with a 5-under-par 67 round in the morning and it looked as though the question wouldn't be whether he would win but whether he would break the 72 hole State Open scoring record.

Going into the final round of play Woltman held a six shot lead over Patrick Stolpe. That lead would shrink quickly and all of sudden the two were within two shots of each other after 3 holes. The margin jumped around and even got down to one after the par 4, 7th. However Woltman steadied the ship and played his final 11 holes in 2-under-par. In the end he was able to claim his fourth Morgan Stanley Wisconsin State Open championship. His 18-under-par 270 total was the second lowest score in the history of the event, and helped him claim a three shot win over Stolpe.

Finishing in third place was Jim Schuman at 280. In fourth place with low amateur honors was Hunter Eichhorn, at 282.

The WPGA would like to express our appreciation to presenting partner Vincent Suter, Family Wealth Advisor, Wealth Advisor at Morgan Stanleyand supporting sponsor TaylorMade Golf.

A big thank you also goes out to the staff and membership Geneva National Resort for being a terrific host. They provided all the support that was needed to execute the championship in a fine fashion.

Round two of the Morgan Stanley Wisconsin State Open presented by Vincent Suter, Family Wealth Advisor, Wealth Advisor at Morgan Stanley wrapped up earlier this evening at Geneva National Resort. Today's play featured another great opportunity for players to go low on the receptive greens of both the Palmer & Trevino Courses.

That opportunity would face a few minor challenges throughout the day though. An annoying light rain lingered in the area for about four hours, and players also had to sit through an hour and 45 min lightning delay in the middle of the day.

Navigating those challenges the best was 3-time champion Dan Woltman. The Beaver Dam native backed up his 65 with a 5-under-par 67 on the Palmer Course. His 12-under-par 132 total was good enough to earn himself a four shot lead heading into Wednesday. Sitting in second place is Oostburg native Patrick Stolpe, after he scorched the front nine with 8 birdies in 9 holes. In third place is Hunter Eichhorn, seven shots back.

The 36 hole cut fell at +5, 149. Sixty-six players were able to navigate that cut and earn the opportunity to tee it up for the 36 holes finale on Wednesday.

Geneva National Resort rolled out the red carpet on Monday, as play got underway at the 99th Morgan Stanley Wisconsin State Open presented by Vincent Suter, Family Wealth Advisor, Wealth Advisor at Morgan Stanley and supported by TaylorMade Golf. It was a great day for golf, with ideal scoring conditions throughout.

Half of the 204 player field tackled the Trevino Course, while the other half battled the Palmer Course on Monday. The soft greens on each course helped produce twenty five players under par.

Leading the way after the all the scores were posted was 3-time champion Dan Woltman. The Beaver Dam native went bogey-free en route to his 7-under-par 65 on the Trevino Course. His score was good enough to grab a three shot lead over Andrew Steinhofer and Jack Schultz.

Gary D'Amato from Wisconsin.Golf gets you up to speed on several of the story lines from the day - www.wisconsin.golf/men/wpga/to-no-one-s-surprise-defending-champion-dan-woltman-takes/article_363...

Monday marked the 6th annual Wisconsin State Golf Association / Wisconsin PGA Summer Showdown. This year's invitational event took place at Meadowbrook Country Club. The day was ripe for scoring, with great course conditions and ideal weather throughout.

Taking advantage of those conditions the best was Jim Schuman of Blue Mound G&CC. The PGA teaching professional was able to pile up 7 birdies en route to a 6-under-par 65. Throughout the day his putting and ball striking led the way. Finishing three shots back was Tom Burton of Hidden Glen GC. Tying for low amateur honors was Paul Zarek and Ricky Kuiper with 1-under-par 70s.

A big thank you goes out to TaylorMade Golf & adidas Golf for supporting the event for the 6th straight year. A great deal of appreciation also goes to Meadowbrook Country Club for hosting.
