After a three-week break the WPGA four-player pro-am series was back on course with the Janesville CC Pro-Am. The fifth event of the series would give the sold-out field a chance to tackle the oldest country club in the state. The always challenging layout would again put a premium on ball striking with the small tricky greens at Janesville CC.
Throughout the day the players would also be presented with ever changing conditions. From windy and overcast to sunny and muggy, it definitely added to the task at hand.
Negotiating the conditions and layout the best was The Oaks GC foursome of Joe Leonard, Doug Leonard, Travis Pronschinske and Tom Welch. The squad would ham and egg their way around, as each player on the team would do their part to help get to the 16-under-par 128 mark. The winning score in the one net / one gross better ball would feature eleven net birdies and four net eagles. It would be good enough to carry them to a two shot win. The victory marks the third pro-am win of the season for a Joe Leonard led squad.
As for the three spots up for grabs into the Oliphant Golf Management Pro-Am Championship, they would go to the teams led by Joaquin Diaz, Mark Voeller and Matt Sabol.
In the low pro game a trio of professionals would tie at even-par 72. Carding the winning score was Diaz, Voeller and Craig Czerniejewski. Voeller would double up as his 72 would help him lead the way in the low senior professional contest.
A big thank you goes out to Tito’s Vodka for their continued support of the WPGA pro-am series. They once again helped bring a slew of enhancements to the day. Included in that list was Tito’s closest to the pin event on #3. Rimas Buinevicius of Blackhawk CC would knock it close to take home a new Tito’s golf bag. Monday marked the fourth out of six events that Tito’s will be sponsoring in 2022.
The WPGA would also like to thank Janesville CC and their staff for being a gracious host.
