A hot and humid day with plenty of sunshine greeted the 115 participants of the Spring Pro-Ladies event on Tuesday. With thick rough and slick greens The Legend at Bergamont provided a fun test of golf for the professionals and lady amateurs that teed it up.
Cruising to a seven shot win and putting together a great team effort was the fivesome of RJ Purvis, Nancy Seymour, Janet Pulvermacher, Jill Doucette and Beth Giles from Door Creek GC. The squad combined to make nineteen net birdies and two net eagles en route to a 24-under-par 120 score in the two net best ball format. Finishing in second place was the Brown Deer GC squad.
In the low professional competition it was Michael Crowley of Morningstar GC taking it low with a 7-under-par 65. The fireworks on his scorecard included six birdies and an eagle on the short par 4, 8th hole. Finishing just two shots behind Crowley was Gene Kiela and low senior professional, Charlie Brown.
Partnering up with the Wisconsin PGA for both Pro-Ladies events this year is the Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic and Jofit. The two companies did a fantastic job of enhancing the event. Included in those enhancements were some fun closest to the pin contests and also a Jofit Mobile Shop to give all the prize winners a great selection of goods to choose from with their gift certificates.
A great deal of appreciation goes out to The Legend at Bergamont. The club provided first class service throughout the day and a terrific backdrop of conditions on the course. The WPGA would like to thank everyone at The Legend at Bergamont for making sure all the attendees had a fun day.
