The WPGA fast forwarded the clock a bit on Monday as the Fall Pro-Pro Better Ball found a unfamiliar home in the fourth week of August. The early slot in the schedule was just how the “cards fell” with this year’s schedule. It turned out to be the first time the event has been played in August.
Hosting this year’s Fall Pro-Pro Better Ball was the the former host site of the Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic, Thornberry Creek at Oneida. After hosting WPGA pro-ams and Wisconsin State Open Qualifiers in the past, the club was making its debut as a host for an event reserved for just WPGA professionals.
Although the knowledge of the layout for the field may have been limited, it didn’t hold back the event champions. Josh Grisa and David Bach would “ham and egg” their way to an impressive 12-under-par 60 in the one better ball of two format. They would combine to make 14 birdies, as they rolled in putts from everywhere. The score would provide them with a four shot win.
Nearly four months earlier the Kohler Golf duo would also discover the winning formula at the Spring Pro-Pro Better Ball at The Beloit Club.
For the win the twosome would take home the first place team prize of $1,100.
Finishing in second place were their playing partners Chad Sandee and Tim Schroyer.
A big thank you goes out to our event partners of the Fall Pro-Pro Better Ball. Teaming up to enhance this year’s event was Harris Golf Cars, Yamaha Golf & Utility and AndersonOrd.
The WPGA would also like to express of gratitude to everyone at Thornberry Creek at Oneida. The fun and diverse layout provided plenty of enjoyment and challenge to the players.
