The event would consist of the two sections selecting a team of 12 boys and 12 girls to represent their section in a Ryder Cup team-type event.  The formats used are four-ball matches and individual singles matches.  One point is awarded for winning a match outright and half a point is awarded for a tie. Team Wisconsin holds the overall series lead 12-5-1.

The 2016 team will consist of players off the 2015 Player of the Year points list. SentryWorld will host the event this year on June 29-30.

WPGA High School Invitational at Maple Bluff CC

The WPGA Junior Foundation and Madison Edgewood High School teamed up to run an Invitational golf event today at Maple Bluff CC in Madison. The players had a perfect day to play golf. Last year they played in snow flurries, what a difference a year makes. We had 22 teams compete from around the state. Joey Levin from Middleton was the medalist with a 2-under par 69. Logan Knecht from Madison Memorial was second with a 1-under par 70. Middleton won the team title today with 313, edging out Madison Edgewood by one shot. Middleton team members are Brady Thomas, Joey Levin, Emmet Herb, Nils Arneson, Brett Wipfli and coached by Tom Cabalka.

We would like to thank Maple Bluff CC, Host PGA Professional Brian Bishop, Superintendent Josh LePine, Host School Madison Edgewood, Host Athletic Director Chris Zwettler and our friends at the WSGA for making this event possible. Good luck to all the boys teams as they start the season.

Changes for registration for Junior Tour #12 (Irish Course at Whistling Straits.

First, we will conduct a lottery drawing for players to get into this event. Juniors will have 24 hours from when registration starts (April 4th at 6 p.m.) to register. Everyone that registers during this time will  be put into a pending status and your credit card will not be charged. The lottery drawing will be random and will take place on April 7th.  Once the lottery takes place the selected entries will be charged on credit card you registered with.  Second, the tournament will Only be open to boys & girls ages 14-18. This golf course is very difficult and we have had issues with pace of play in the 13 & under division in years past. This prompted the age change.
 

 Season Kick-Off event
The Junior Foundation has created a fun day to help kick start the season. Swing Time Golf Range in Germantown will be our host. This will be open to juniors ages 7 to 18. Juniors will compete in a long drive contest, mini golf contest and also attend a rules clinic. The event should take a few hours to complete and will have group start times based on age. The event will cost $15 to attend but your entry fee will get you a $10 credit for an event this summer. How can you pass this up for only $5! Registrations will be taken online and you will see this event on the schedule.
