A Batch of Impressive Match Play Champions
As the snow hits the ground in Wisconsin it is hard to believe just last month that the Wisconsin PGA wrapped up three season-long match play competitions. Coming to a close were the Four-Ball Match Play team event, WAGPA (Assistants) Match Play and the first ever Senior Match Play. Snagging the elusive titles were Jim Schuman and Joe Stadler in the four-ball, Mick Smith in the assistants and Schuman once again as he also claimed the senior competition.
On the team side of things the WPGA Four-Ball Match Play produced another exciting run throughout the season. After seeding took place at the season opening Spring Pro-Pro Better Ball, a bracket of 32 teams then faced off throughout the season to determine the 2018 champions. The champions had quite a challenge to take home this year's winView More

Young Guns Boockmeier & Spengler Jr. Scramble Their Way To Victory
Recent history shows the Wisconsin PGA always closes their in-state tournament schedule with the Pro-Pro Scramble. For the first time in decades the Wisconsin PGA was set to shift gears from that plan but Mother Nature got involved. When the 2018 schedule was released the Callaway Pro-Pro Scramble was moved to the spring for the first time and was scheduled to be the opening tournament of the year. An almost record setting amount of snow in April ended up derailing that idea. The event had to be pushed back six months into a fitting spot, closing out the 2018 slate on Monday at The Oaks GC. The wait proved to be well worth it as they day featured some nice fall weather and a fantastic 104 player turnout.View More
