The Wisconsin PGA is proud to bring back the Oliphant Golf Management Pro-Am Championship. After great feedback the first five years, the event will once again put an exclamation point on the pro-am season. It will give teams a chance to earn a spot in the field at the eight “regular season” pro-ams that the Wisconsin PGA offers. The WPGA would like to thank Oliphant Golf Management and The Links Course at GC’s of Lawsonia for helping make this great event possible.
The top 3 finishers among the eligible teams at the pro-ams at Chenequa CC, Trappers Turn GC, Oneida G&CC, The Club at Strawberry Creek, Maple Bluff CC, Blackhawk CC, Blackwolf Run and Horseshoe Bay GC will qualify for the championship field.
NOTE: Once a professional qualifies, he will not be able to qualify with another team.
David Bach, John Bailey, Jeff Bisbee, Brian Bishop, Brian Brodell, Bryan Brotchie, Charlie Brown, Keith Buntrock, Michael Crowley, Craig Czerniejewski, Matt Hartmann, Ryan Helminen, Mike Higgins, Joe Leonard, Brad Peck, David Roesch, Mark Voeller & Ryan Wieme
After the Horseshoe Bay event a random drawing will be held and two spots will be given away. Every time you tee it up in a Wisconsin PGA pro-am leading up to Horseshoe Bay you will receive an entry into the drawing. The drawing will be made up of anyone that has not already qualified. One spot will be drawn from previous professional participants and one will be drawn from previous amateur participants.
For each event, there will also be two alternates in case a professional that qualifies elects not to play in the championship. If a professional declines to play, their spot in the championship will be filled from an alternate rotation. The order of the alternate grid has been randomly drawn and will be 1) Blackwolf Run 2) Oneida G&CC 3) Blackhawk CC 4) Horseshoe Bay GC 5) Maple Bluff CC 6) Chenequa CC 7) Strawberry Creek 8) Trappers Turn GC
When a team qualifies, the professional earns the spot, not the team. The professional cannot transfer his spot to another professional. The professional will then have the option to invite whichever amateurs he wishes (professional substitutions will be considered for extenuating circumstances).
The #1 handicap hole will be utilized to settle all ties for spots and alternates.
