Lauterbach/Guiser Advance to DCP Finals

The Regional finals for the Drive, Chip and Putt competition were held on September 6th at the TPC Twin Cities in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  Wisconsin was well represented with 14 boys and 15 girls competing.  Emily Lauterbach, Hartland, won the 14-15 year old division of the girls competition with a score of 136 which was the 3rd highest score of the day including the boys divisions.  Jessica Guiser, also from Hartland, captured the title in the girls 7-9 division with a score of 124. 


Wisconsin juniors had many other top finishes including Aiden Cudney (2nd boys 7-9), Maximillian Xiong (2nd boys 12-13), Jack Blair (3rd boys 12-13), Elliott Nielsen (boys 14-15), Klairissa O'Reilly-Dye (3rd girls 12-13) and Ashley Kulka (girls 14-15). 


From Marquette, Michigan, Jordan Jurmu was the winner in the Boys 12-13.  While Marquette is not in the Wisconsin PGA Section, Jordan competed at the sub-regional at The Bog to advance to the Regionals.


Congratulations to everyone that came out and competed in Drive, Chip and Putt this summer.  We had eight local qualifiers and two sub-regionals and all of the participants and their parents should be proud of the sportsmanship displayed at every one of the events.


Good luck at the finals to our Wisconsin girls!
