PGA Professionals and Amateurs Compete in the 2019 South Florida PGA Travel Pro-Am at Whistling Straits

June 6, 2019 – This week, 21 teams traveled to Kohler, Wisconsin to take part in the 2019 South Florida PGA Travel Pro-Am supported by Linksoul. Teams in the event were comprised of one professional and three amateurs.

The week featured three rounds of competition on three different elite courses. The prestigious Whistling Straits, future site of the 2020 Ryder Cup, hosted two rounds, one on the Straits Course and one on the Irish Course. Blackwolf Run, home to the 1988 and 2012 U.S. Women’s Open, hosted the third round, on its River Course. Both properties are owned by the Kohler Company and operated by The American Club.

In addition to playing different courses each day, the teams were challenged by different formats. All of the professionals who participated competed in a Stableford Format where Chris Shultis, PGA Head Golf Professional at Verandah Golf Club obtained 116 points, birding his last three holes to capture the low professional title. The low team honors for the week went to Cypress Lake Country Club, led by PGA Head Golf Professional Jon Pazdera and amateurs Chuck Andrews, Rich Krichbaum, and Steve Weisberg who fired a 329 for the week.

The three challenging golf courses were met with phenomenal weather to make for a great week. The South Florida PGA Travel Pro-Am is an annual trip that is open to PGA members and associates in the section and has made stops in southern Ireland and Pinehurst Resort in North Carolina.
