19th Annual WI/MN Cup Matches

Four Straight Not to be for Team Wisconsin

The 19th Annual WI/MN Cup Matches finished up on June 30 at SentryWorld GC in Stevens Point, WI. This event pairs a team of 12 boys and 12 girls from Wisconsin against Minnesota in a Ryder Cup team-type event that started back in 1998. SentryWorld also hosted this event back in 2006. The golf course is in great shape and the players from both teams enjoyed the renovated layout. Team MN led 7.5 to 4.5 after day one of four ball matches. Team Minnesota won 12.5 points during singles matches to Team Wisconsin's 11.5 to win the cup with a total of 20-16, Team Wisconsin holds the overall series lead now at 12-6-1.

The Junior Foundation would also like to thank the sales reps that donated tee gifts to each player. Thanks to Ted Robbins and Tom Cranwell for donating Titleist golf balls, gloves and  hats, Paul Minz for donating the team Puma Golf shirts each day, and Ron Hurab for donating an RJ Shepherd umbrella and Devant towel to each player. These guys make this event a great experience for all players.

We would also like to thank the amazing staff at SentryWorld for making this event great. Thanks to General Manager Mike James, Director of Golf Danny Rainbow and Superintendent Gary Tanko.

Lake Arrowhead Invitational Results

             
              (Jo Baranczyk, Maria Seeman, Speedy Kent)                               (Clayton Tribus, Matthew Tuman, Emmet Herb)

We had a great finish at the Lake Arrowhead Invitational on June 26-27.The WPGA Junior Foundation wrapped up its second Major of the year. The juniors played The Pines course the first day and The Lakes course on day two for this 36-hole event. The first day was windy and warm on the pines course and made difficult scoring conditions. Round two was a great day for golf!

We had a few firsts in this event. The event had two hole-in-ones on back to back days! In round one Jonathan Duggan made his on the Pines Course on hole #17. In round two Maria Seeman made hers on the Lakes Course hole #7.  The next first was a 13 year-old winning the girls division. Jo Baranczyk (Green Bay) shoots 75-80 to capture the girls title by two shots over Maria Seeman (Milton). Maria's hole-in-one helped her finish one shot better than Speedy Kent (Mequon) for second place. All three girls will be competing at the 19th Annual WI/MN Cup Matches this week.



                (Maria Seeman & Jonathan Duggan)

The boys division was also a close race. But Emmet Herb has been here before and led wire to wire for his second straight Lake Arrowhead Invitational title. Emmet Herb (Middleton) defended his title from last year to capture the win with rounds of 72-72. Matt Tuman (Wausau) fired the low round on the Lakes Course, 2 under par 70 to finish in second place with a total of 148. Clayton Tribus (Madison) finished one shot back with a total of 149 for third place.
