After shifting into the month of May for the first time in 2022, the National Golf Graphics Pro-Am was back in its familiar July spot. The always popular pro-am was again kicking off the second half of the WPGA season after the July 4 break.

For the first time since the Wisconsin PGA partnered with National Golf Graphics in 2015, the event would venture to the middle part of the state. This year’s edition would bring together twenty-four teams to enjoy a great day at long-time WPGA pro-am host site, Bullseye Golf Club.

This year’s format would again feature the always fun net stableford team game. Teams would have to be on top of their game as the format would take the top 3 net scores for the group on each hole. The point system awarded 1 point for a net bogey, 2 points for a net par, 4 points for a net birdie, 6 points for a net eagle and 8 points for a net double eagle or better.

Adding to the challenge were gusty winds, firm course conditions, and the undulating greens at Bullseye GC.

Leading his team to the win was Jeff Bisbee of Bisbee’s Golf Center. The Stevens Point native took advantage of years of experience to get the win. This go around he would team up with Jeff Mathu, Jim Hanson and Jeff Staff. The foursome would accumulate 141 stableford points. It truly was a team effort as all three amateurs would finish in the top 20 of the amateur point getters, and Bisbee would finish with the third most points among professionals. Their team total would give them the win over the Ryan Helminen led group by just one point.

It would mark the second time that Bisbee has led a team to a pro-am win at Bullseye GC, with the other one coming in 2006.

In addition to the win the team also earned a coveted spot in the Oliphant Golf Management Pro-Am Championship. Claiming the other two available spots were the Tanner Keel led Bullseye GC team and the foursome with Joe Leonard.

The day also featured low amateur, low professional, low senior professional stableford events and some proxy contests on the Par 3s.

Claiming the wins were;

Low Professional Contest – Ryan Helminen – 43 points
Low Senior Professional Contest – Jeff Bisbee – 36 points
Low Amateur Contest – Mark Cobb & Marcus Menzel – 46 points

Closest to the Pin #4 (Amateurs) – Mark Cobb
Closest to the Pin #8 (Amateurs) – Nate Nelmark
Closest to the Pin #12 (Pros) – Daniel Romero
Closest to the Pin #15 (Pros) – Tanner Keel


As always the day would not be possible without the support of Peter Meyer and National Graphics. Peter once again helped put together a terrific pro-am for all the attendees to enjoy. The WPGA would also like to thank our supporting partners for their contributions, Oliphant Golf Management and Tito’s Vodka.

Bullsye GC and their staff did another great job of hosting a WPGA pro-am. From the food offerings to the course conditions, the club made sure that all the attendees got plenty of bang for their buck.
