The Wisconsin PGA is proud to bring back the Oliphant Golf Management Pro-Am Championship. After receiving great feedback the first three 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 finishing teams at the pro-ams at Beloit Club, Oneida G&CC, Trappers Turn GC, Oconomowoc GC, Racine CC, Nakoma GC, the Irish Course at Whistling Straits and Tuckaway CC will qualify for the championship field.
NOTE: Once a professional qualifies, he will not be able to qualify with another team.
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 will be randomly drawn at the Cobra Puma Oneida Pro-Am.
Yes, there will be a participation based reward drawing after the Irish Course event for two additional championship invitation. The drawings will award one invitation to a professional and one to an amateur not already on a qualified team. For every pro-am that you play in during the first seven events, you will receive one entry into the drawing. Winners of the drawing will be posted in the event wrap up at wisconsin.pga.com.
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.
