It was another eventful Monday on the WPGA tournament calendar, as the season continues to wind down. A nice field of forty-four twosomes teed it up at Rivermoor GC in the always fun Fall Pro-Pro Scramble. Between the storm dodging, a nice lineup of sponsors, and a few side contests, there was plenty to grab the attention of the attendees.
In the main competition it’d be another interesting battle for the title. The teams had plenty of chances to go for broke on the short layout, but they had navigate the towering trees to keep the ball in a prime position. Overpowering the nearly 100 year old golf course the best was the duo of Michael Crowley and Austin Gaugert. The bombers piled up 10 birdies and an eagle on the par-4 9th. They carded a 12-under-par 58, which did not include a bogey. The score was good enough to hold off the John Bailey and Max Hosking by two shots.
In addition to the team event the day also featured a fun Total Driving Challenge presented by Evolve Golf, and a closest to the pin contest, sponsored by Earth Networks.
Taking home the prizes in those contests were;
Evolve Golf Total Driving Challenge
1st – Mitchell Steiner
2nd – Scott Walecki
3rd – David Bach
Earth Networks – Closest to the Pin on #5
Blake Jens – 2 Feet, 9 Inches
