For the third year in a row the WPGA would kick off the month of June with a pro-am stop at The Club at Strawberry Creek. This year’s X Golf Brookfield / American Family Field / Mequon / Appleton Strawberry Creek Pro-Am would once again bring together a sold out field of twenty-nine teams. Amazingly the event only took four minutes to fill up after registration opened.

Jumping out to a hot start in the 1,2,3 net best ball team contest was the Matt Sabol led squad. Sabol, his dad Brian, Andy Karow, and Dave Jozwiak, would quickly grab the attention of the field. They would go an amazing 16-under-par on their first nine holes. However, the Ryan Helminen group would make up ground on the back-nine. Eventually the Helminen led group would get within striking distance and on their final hole the entire team would make natural birdies. The strong finish would propel them an 18-under-par 134 total, good enough to tie the Sabol led team.

The Sabol squad would however get the last laugh though, as they’d take home the champion trophies via a scorecard playoff.

The low professional stableford event would also be tightly contested. David Bach and Joe Leonard would put up a barrage of birdies on their way to tying for the top spot. Leading the way for the senior professionals were Michael Crowley and Mark Voeller.

The WPGA would like to express our appreciation to X Golf Milwaukee (Brookfield, Mequon, AmFam Field & Appleton), Harris Golf Cars, and Tito's Handmade Vodka for their support of Monday's pro-am.

In addition, we’d like to thank everyone at The Club at Strawberry Creek for being a gracious host.

The WPGA Pro-Ladies #1 – Spring Event supported by Wilson Golf made its annual appearance on our calendar of events on Tuesday. With summer just another the corner a sold-out field of twenty-four fivesomes would venture to Bishops Bay Country Club to enjoy the day.

With great course conditions and pristine weather the field was determined to shoot some impressive scores.

Taking home this year’s title was the Bishops Bay Country Club team of John Shipshock, Jessie Gulden, Kelly Gustafson, Tiffany Nickel and Leslie Even. They would use their local knowledge to card an impressive 17-under-par 127 two net best ball score. Good enough for a two shot win over the Nakoma Golf Club team and the Charlie Brown led Geneva National team.

It would mark the second straight season where the host club team would win the Pro-Ladies - Spring Event.

For Brown it would turn out to be one of those days where everything found the bottom of the cup. He would shoot a bogey free 7-under-par 65 and pile up 43 stableford points. The score would help him win both the low pro and low senior pro contests.

The WPGA would like to express our appreciation to Wilson Golf for supporting this year’s Pro-Ladies – Spring Event. In addition, a big thank you goes out to everyone at Bishops Bay Country Club for being a terrific host site.

Tuesday marked the fifteenth playing of The Legend Clubs Challenge – Two Person Scratch Pro-Am. The annual event always draws some of the top playing professionals and amateurs from throughout the state.

This year's edition would visit The Legend at Merrill Hills. We were fortunate to have another beautiful spring day for the sold out field to enjoy.

Getting off to a hot start was the University Ridge Golf Course team of Erik Stenseth and Garrett Jones. They would pile up six birdies in their first eight holes to jump out to an early lead. However, slowly The Oaks Golf Course team of Joe Leonard and Travis Pronschinske would eat into their lead with their own birdies. When the round was done each team had carded a 7-under-par 65 better ball score.

With both teams eyeing their first title in the event, they would settle the tie with a hole-by-hole playoff. After matching pars on the first playoff hole the battle would come to an end on the par-4 18th. With a sand wedge in hand Stenseth would knock his second shot to seven feet. The right to left birdie putt would find the cup and deliver the duo the win.

The WPGA would like express our appreciation to our event partners, Premier Golf & Utility Vehicles, Inc. and the PGA TOUR. We'd also like to thank everyone at The Legend Clubs for being a gracious host.

The Wisconsin PGA was greeted with a fantastic spring day as our four-player pro-am series got going on Monday. After inclement weather derailed the start of the pro-am season on May 1, it was great to see 112 players come out and enjoy the XXIO Grand Geneva Double Dip Pro-Am, supported by Under Armour Golf and the Wisconsin State Golf Association.

Just like last Monday this event was packed with different contests, as there was plenty of prizes to be won.

Tackling the Highlands course the best and finding their way to top in the primary four-player contest leaderboard were two groups. The University Ridge Golf Course group of Kyle Nielsen, Matt Smith, Justin Pounders and Tony Thaden would tie the High Cliff Golf and Event Center team of Corey Feller, Ken Lubinski, Corey Haag and Mike Morrissey. Each team would post a 15-under-par 127 in the two net better ball contest. Grabbing the bragging rights and winning the scorecard playoff for the champion trophies was the University Ridge GC team.

The first place tie theme would continue, as the two-player one net contest would also feature one. Carding 8-under-par 63s were the Ryan Helminen/Matt Butch, Michael Crowley/John Glowacki and Noel Zimmerman/Scott Frasch twosomes. In this scorecard playoff Helminen and Butch would earn the hardware.

The low pro game would also see a logjam at the top. Piling up 37 stableford points was a sextet of WPGA professionals. Michael Crowley, Craig Czerniejewski, Ryan Helminen, Joe Leonard, Mark Voeller and Noel Zimmerman would all card a 1-under-par 70.

A big thank you goes out to XXIO, the Wisconsin State Golf Association and Under Armour Golf for their gracious support of the event. We'd also like to express our gratitude to everyone at Grand Geneva Resort & Spa for being a great host.

It was another busy Monday for the Wisconsin PGA, as The Oaks Golf Course played host to the next two events on the WPGA tournament calendar.

Over 100 participants would venture to the newly renovated course for the Assistant Professional Stroke Play and Memorial Classic. Each event was proudly supported by the Wisconsin Golf Salespersons Association and Rolex.

While the golf and camaraderie was front and center, the attendees also took some time during the reception to remember those that we lost over the past year.

On the course there would be plenty of action, as the day featured nine different contests. In the two main contests it would take a winning score of 3-under-par 68 to get the job done.

In the Memorial Classic it would be Andy Hansen of The University Club of Milwaukee with a one stroke win over Kurt Mantyla.

As for the assistants, Josh Grisa of Blackwolf Run would keep his streak of great play going with a three shot win over David Bach and Blake Jens.

The WPGA would like thank all the members of the WIGSA for their support and participation in Monday's event. Also deserving of recognition was our other event partner, ROLEX.

A great deal of appreciation also goes out to everyone at The Oaks GC.
