Congratulations to Emmet Herb of Blackhawk Country Club for winning the National Car Rental Wisconsin Assistant PGA Professional Championship yesterday! Emmet shot 4-under-par at Reedsburg Country Club and was the playoff winner. A special thank you to Reedsburg CC for hosting and of course a thank... you to all of our sponsors for their continued support.

Congratulations to Daniel Romero on his hole in one today at the National Car Rental Assistant PGA Professional Championship at Reedsburg Country Club! He carded a 1 on hole 12 from 123 yards out with his 54 degree wedge!

Monday marked back-to-back weeks for the WPGA Pro-Am Four-Player Pro-Am Series. After the rescheduled Suter Ward Group at Morgan Stanley Pro-Am kicked off the month of July last week, the series made the trek to Stevens Point Country Club for the Wilson Golf Pro-Am.

It was the first time ...the series had made a stop in Stevens Point since SentryWorld hosted in 2018.

Flying up the leaderboard and earning the win was the foursome of Ryan Helminen, Matt Butch, Scott Merzlicker and Ze Vue. They carded a 19-under-par 125 to win by one shot over the Craig Czerniejewski led team. Each player did their part over the course of the day in the one net and one gross best ball format. In total they piled up eighteen net birdies and three net eagles.

For Helminen his 38 stableford points would tie him with Matt Hartmann and Joe Leonard for the low professional victory.

The low senior professional contest was also closely contested, as Brad Lanning came out on top with 37 stableford points.

A big thank you goes out to Wilson Golf, Harris Golf Cars and Elijah Craig for their support of Monday's event. We'd also like to thank Stevens Point Country Club for being a gracious host.

Congratulations to the winners of the Wilson Golf Pro-Am! The team of Ryan Helminen, Matt Butch, Scott Merzlicker, & Ze Vue took home the gold at Stevens Point Country Club on Monday. Huge thank you to Stevens Point CC for hosting, and special shoutout to Wilson, Harris Golf Cars, and Elijah ...Craig for their continued support!

After a soggy month of June, the Wisconsin PGA and all the golf courses in the state were ready for a fresh start with the calendar flipping over to July. One of the casualties of the inclement weather in June was the postponement of the Suter Ward Group At Morgan Stanley Pro-Am at Bishops Bay ...Country Club.

Fortunately, just four weeks later the club would welcome the event back on Monday. Another sold-out field of twenty-nine teams would enjoy a picture-perfect day.

Taking home the title was the home club group of John Shipshock, Jason Hatch, Jerin Zander and Shawn Kriewaldt. They would go low, carding a 21-under-par 131 total in the 1,2,3 net best ball format. They would not play one hole over par and the par 5s would also be a huge factor.

Finishing just two shots behind the winning squad was the Andy Hansen led The University Club of Milwaukee group.

Leading the way in the low professional stableford contest was the trio of John Knoll, Kyle Kroener and Joe Leonard. Each player would pile up 39 points and card an impressive 3-under-par 69. Just one point back was the low senior professional, David Roesch.

A big thank you goes out to Vince Suter and The Suter Ward Group At Morgan Stanley for their continued support of the Wisconsin PGA. We'd also like to recognize and thank supporting partners, the American Family Insurance Championship, the Wisconsin State Golf Association and Tito's Handmade Vodka.

Our gratitude also goes out to the membership and staff at Bishops Bay Country Club. Their willingness to reschedule the event is very much appreciated.
