Quite A Day At Horseshoe Bay 1

Quite A Day At Horseshoe Bay

September 21, 2021

The WPGA wrapped up the regular season of its 4-player pro-am series on Monday. The eighth and final event brought a field of 27 teams up to Door County to enjoy the challenging and scenic Horseshoe Bay Golf Club. The fescue lined fairways and greens were in terrific shape, and the only negative to the day was the windy and rainy conditions that accompanied the players at times. Navigating the weather and the golf course the best was the foursome of Brian Brodell, John Lukas, Joe Dias and Paul Kundinger.

An Awesome Performance By Aussie Mick Smith 1

An Awesome Performance By Aussie Mick Smith

September 15, 2021

As they say, letting go can be the hardest thing to do. When the WPGA Professional Championship got underway on Monday morning a familiar item would appear on the no. 1 tee. 2020 champion Mick Smith would arrive with the traveling trophy in hand, and of course a joke about letting the WPGA use it for a few days. However, to Smith it most likely wasn’t a joke. In just under three years as a WPGA member the Australian has quickly earned a reputation as one of the top players in the Wisconsin Section.

Two for Two – Tiziani Claims the Minnesota and Wisconsin State Senior Open Titles

September 09, 2021

At the same time his brother-in-law Steve Stricker was making the final selections for the Ryder Cup team he will lead this month, Mario Tiziani made his own history Wednesday at the Wisconsin State Senior Open. Tiziani, who at 51 made his debut appearance in the State Senior Open this week at Blackhawk CC in Madison, won the title in a five-hole sudden-death playoff over Kurt Mantyla, a PGA professional from Wauwatosa.

The WPGA would like to congratulate Sam Schlosser of South Hills Golf & Country Club on winning the 2021 WPGA Assistant Professional Match Play Championship.

Sam faced off against Blake Jens this past Saturday at West Bend CC. The two battled for all 18 holes and neither side led by more than 2 holes throughout the day. In the end a great recovery shot on no. 18 helped deliver Sam the 1up win.

To earn his spot in the finals he had to defeat Rollin Petersen, Joaquin Diaz and Tom Burton.

For his victory he'll take home the $650 prize check and also have the nice bragging rights of winning both the one-day Assistant Stroke Play event back in May (which doubled as the match play qualifier) and the year-long Assistant Match Play. He becomes the first to pull off the accomplishment since Andrew Troyanek did it in 2016.

The WPGA would like to thank the Wisconsin Golf Sales Association for their continued support of the event and all the facilities that hosted matches throughout the summer.

It was an exciting day of golf on Tuesday as the WPGA Professional Championship came to a close.

With gusty winds and soft conditions there was plenty of movement on the leaderboard throughout the day. Overall seven players would have a share of the lead at one point or another.

Navigating his way through the field to capture his second straight WPGA Professional Championship was Mick Smith of the The Practice Station. The 48-year-old would be rock solid down the stretch as he'd play his final 11 holes at 4-under-par. Included in that run was birdies on the two hardest holes of the day, no. 12 and 13.

In the end he would post a 2-under-par 69, which resulted in a two-round total of 3-under-par 139. The score was good enough to hold off Tom Burton by just one shot.

In addition, both Smith and Burton earned one of the coveted five spots into the 2022 PGA Professional Championship next April in Texas. They'll also be joined by Erik Stenseth, Jim Schuman and Jeff Kaiser.

A big thank you goes out to everyone at the The University Club of Milwaukee for being a gracious host. We'd also also like thank the entire list of our of event sponsors for their great support.

The 37th Wisconsin State Senior Open came to a close late Wednesday afternoon. It was another exciting day of golf as the players battled both the field and the windy conditions at Blackhawk Country Club, Madison WI.

Coming from behind and winning a 5-hole playoff to claim victory was Mario Tiziani. The Madison native who now resides near the Twin Cities was able to go on a birdie run on the back nine just earn a spot in the playoff.

Throughout the day first round leader Kurt Mantyla was in the driver's seat, but the final three holes saw him fall back into a tie with Tiziani.

Each player would post a 3-under par 141 total in regulation.

After playing the first four playoff holes in 1-under-par and matching scores, the duo arrived at the par-5 13th. After three solid shots by Tiziani, the 2002 Wisconsin State Open champion would roll in about 6 foot birdie putt for the win.

Tiziani becomes the ninth player to win both the Wisconsin State Open and Senior Opens. A list that also includes his uncle Larry.

A big thank goes out to our three supporting partners - Sentry, The Suter Ward Group At Morgan Stanley and TaylorMade Golf. Their contributions to the entire State Open Series is greatly appreciated.

The WPGA would also like to thank everyone at Blackhawk Country Club for being a terrific host site.

Round one of the 37th Wisconsin State Senior Open from Blackhawk Country Club, Madison WI wrapped up earlier this evening. It turned out to be a nice afternoon for golf after a batch of severe weather caused a one hour delay shortly after play began.

Taking advantage of the soft conditions the best was Kurt Mantyla of Naga-Waukee GC. The Appleton native carded a 4-under-par 68, which included four birdies and the lone eagle from the field on day one. He currently leads by two shots over a trio of golfers. Included in that group is 2020 champion Michael Crowley and amateurs Rocky Sperka and Jason Summers.

The foursome will tee it up together as the final group off #1 at 10:30 AM.

Monday marked the second WPGA Pro-Ladies on the 2021 tournament calendar. After visiting the Madison area for event no. 1 in June, the summer event made a stop at The Legend at Merrill Hills.

Once again the day featured a great turnout. The sold out field was treated to a nicely conditioned golf course and plenty of sunshine.

Grabbing the win was the Westmoor Country Club squad of Molly Braid, Peggy Hauser, Georgeanne Carleton, Pat Locante and Maggie Leef. The fivesome carded an impressive 20-under-par 124 in the two net team contest. The score was good enough to deliver them a four shot win.

Taking home the low professional win was Michael Arsenault of Geneva National Resort. On the senior side it'd be Charlie Brown leading the way, which provided a sweep of the low pro events for GN.

A big thank you goes out to everyone at The Legend Clubs for being a terrific host site.
