The WPGA pro-am series made its 2020 debut on Monday at Trappers Turn GC in Wisconsin Dells. A field of 22 teams from throughout Wisconsin were able to make the trip and enjoy a day on the Lake and Canyon courses.
The event was quite the challenge from a scoring perspective as consistently strong winds made it tough on the field. Adding to the difficulty was the daily format requiring one gross and one net better ball. Navigating the format and conditions the best was a trio of teams led by Keith Buntrock, David Roesch and Michael Crowley. Each squad was able to get a share of the title by posting an 11-under-par 133.
With only six regular season pro-ams on the docket for 2020 it meant that four teams were able to punch their ticket to the Oliphant Golf Management Pro-Am Championship. The aforementioned trio of teams will be joined by Tom Burton’s squad on October 5 at The GC’s of Lawsonia.
Taking home the low professional contest win was David Roesch with a 3-under-par 69. The score was good enough to hold off low senior professional Michael Crowley by one shot.
The WPGA would like to express our appreciation to Premier Golf & Utility Vehicles for jumping on board as a sponsor of the event. A big thank you also goes out Trappers Turn GC and their staff for hosting. With the help of Premier Golf & Utility Vehicles the club was able to roll out another great day for the attendees.
