The Wisconsin PGA tournament schedule wrapped up the month of April on Wednesday, as the Section teamed up with the Wisconsin Golf Course Superintendents Association. The successful partnership once again produced the Premier Golf & Utility Vehicles Super-Pro. This year’s edition traveled just north of last year’s site as it visited the always well conditioned Washington County GC. A field of eighty players from various facilities and vendors teed it up. It marked the largest turnout since 2008.

Twenty-three duos were eligible for the traditional division of play, featuring one WPGA affiliated professional and one WGCSA member with the same official club affiliation. While the second division was made up of seventeen teams, which included all other teams including a pro/super team that did not have a handicap index.

Once again the teams in the field were playing the always fun Modified Chapman Alternate Shot format. After their 18 hole gross score was completed, teams then received 50% of their combined handicap index to create the net team score.

Finding their way to top of the leaderboard in division one was the twosome of Jim Schuman and Alex Beson-Crone of Blue Mound G&CC. With only 1.25 handicap shots on their scorecard, the 2021 champions were once again faced with the task of going low on their gross ball.

The duo took advantage of the calm conditions, as they went bogey free. With five birdies and a hole-out eagle on the par-4 5th, they were able card a 7-under-par 65 gross ball. Their 63.75 net score was just .45 off what they shot in 2021 when they won at Wild Rock GC.

Finishing in the runner-up position for the second straight season was the Whistling Straits team of David Bach and Chris Zugel. They carded a net score of 64.65.

In the second division of play it was one of the home squads taking home the win. It turned out to be just one of those days for Drew Kosloske and Dave Jahnke. The Washington County GC team would chip-in twice for birdie and hole out for eagle on the par-4 8th. They would manage to shoot even-par 72 on their gross ball, which produced a net 56.

As always the day would not be possible without the support of our title partner, Premier Golf & Utility Vehicles. The long-time event supporter helped put together another great day for all the attendees to enjoy.

The WPGA and WGCSA would like to also express our appreciation to Washington County GC. The club and staff did a nice job of providing terrific course conditions and making sure everyone went home with a full stomach.
