“Going into the tournament, I thought I had a pretty good shot at winning because I’ve been playing well the last couple weeks.” – JORDAN NIEBRUGGE 2 | JULY 26, 2013 112TH WISCONSIN STATE AMATEUR CHAMPIONSHIP | SPONSORED BY CLIFTONLARSONALLEN


ON THE COURSE Kevin Cahill of Merrill Hills CC, above, takes a moment on the first tee Thursday to check out the Sinnissippi Cup, the Wisconsin State Amateur Championship trophy. Right, 16-year-old Sam Madsen, who eventually finished eighth, hits a shot during the second round. Below, Matt Behm was one third of the Yule Cup-winning team from The Bull at Pinehurst Farms.

THE BULL WINS YULE CUP The Bull at Pinehurst Farms in Sheboygan Falls won the Yule Cup, a team event held over the first two rounds of the Wisconsin State Amateur Championship, for the first time. The Bull won the Yule Cup with a three-man, 36hole aggregate score of 8-over-par 440. The Legend Clubs finished second at 442, and Merrill Hills CC in Waukesha was third at 449. Representing The Bull were Jordan Niebrugge, who shot 69-66–135 over the first 36 holes; Matt Behm, who shot 70-77–147, and Tyler Siech, who recorded scores of 80-78–158. Last year, University Ridge GC in Verona won its first Yule Cup. The Yule Cup has been contested at the Wisconsin State Amateur since 1909. Click here for complete results.

Niebrugge finishes off victory

NEW CHAMP STRUGGLES IN FINAL ROUND, BUT PERSEVERES FOR WIN Jordan Niebrugge and Charlie Danielson made a mess of the final hole Thursday afternoon, but considering how they had separated themselves from the field up to that point, it really didn’t matter. One of those long-hitting college players in the final pairing seemed destined to win the Wisconsin State Amateur Championship, sponsored by CliftonLarsonAllen. It turned out to be Niebrugge, who led the tournament from start to finish but almost kicked it away on the last hole. Niebrugge finished at 6-underpar 282 (69-66-71-76) to finish one stroke ahead of Danielson (72-74-68-69–283) at The Bog in Saukville. It was a contest to the very end, as Niebrugge made a double bogey on the par-4 18th hole, and Danielson recorded a bogey. Both hit poor tee shots, with Niebrugge ending up in a hazard on the right and having to take a drop. Danielson found a bunker on the left and couldn’t advance his ball to the green on his second shot. He eventually missed a long par putt, leaving the door open for Niebrugge to two-putt for double bogey and the victory, which he did. “It was frustrating all day,” Niebrugge said afterward. “My dad reminded me after the round that I actually won. That kinda cheered me up.” Niebrugge, who plays out of The Bull at Pinehurst Farms in Sheboygan Falls, entered the final round with an eight-stroke lead over his friend Danielson, of New Richmond GC. Danielson had an up-and-down final round, but he was able to chip away at Niebrugge’s lead, eventually shooting 69 to Niebrugge’s 76. In the six-hole stretch from No. 7 through No. 12, Danielson went

birdie, double bogey, eagle, birdie, bogey, birdie. “I wanted to go out and beat Jordan rather than him having a bad round,” Danielson said. “I didn’t think coming into the round I had any shot to win until (the 17th hole). Obviously, Jordan is a great player and I know his game, so I never got ahead of myself.” Niebrugge appeared to be fighting his swing early in the round, and some of those loose shots resulted in bogeys. His approach shots went long on Nos. 3 and 6, leading to bogeys. He shot 37 on the front nine and 39 on the back and only made two birdies all day (on the first and ninth, both par-5s). But Niebrugge has been a match play wiz this season – winning the WSGA Match Play in June and the U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship last week – and much of his success in that format can be traced to his excellent short game. It was on display at The Bog, as he rolled in several nice par-saving putts in the final round. Robbie Jacobsen of Racine CC, who finished third, actually found himself in second place halfway though the front nine at 4 under par after he made birdies on the first and fifth holes. But he finished with a 3-over-par performance on the back nine, shot 72 and landed in third place at 286. Alex Gaugert of the Links at Grand Geneva in Lake Geneva finished fourth with scores of 70-73-75-72– 290. And Matt Ross of The Legend Clubs shot 7371-75-73–292 and was fifth. “Going into the tournament, I thought I had a pretty good shot at winning because I’ve been playing well the last couple of weeks,” Niebrugge said. “I go into each tournament with a little more confidence.” JULY 26, 2013 | 5

“I was hoping it would be a finish like this, with Jordan and me playing in the last group.” – CHARLIE DANIELSON

SOME FRIENDLY COMPETITION It was a bittersweet final pairing for Jordan Niebrugge and Charlie Danielson. While competitors on the course, more important, the two are best friends off of it. Their friendship began at age 8 at an AAU golf tournament – the first time they ever played together. Neither remembers who won, but both remember the experience. “We only got in two holes before it rained,” said Niebrugge. “But we still got medals,” added Danielson. Despite the stress of a tight finish at this year’s State Amateur, “This was one of the most fun tournaments I’ve played in,” said Danielson.

“Coming in, I was hoping it would be a finish like this, with Jordan and me playing in the last group. Coming this close was a little tough. But losing to my best friend, I’m happy for him.” On Saturday, the two fly to Virginia to play in the Western Amateur at The Alotian Club. After that, they will be participating in the 113th U.S. Amateur in Brookline, Mass. With so much time together, will the subject of the final round come up? “We’ll talk about it and look back at what happened, how each other was feeling,” said Niebrugge. “But we’ll kid about it. We had a lot of fun.”

GETTING DOWN AND DIRTY Sponsoring a golf tournament has become more than a display of signs and banners throughout the course featuring the company name. As sponsor of the 2013 State Amateur Championship, accounting firm CliftonLarsonAllen made the most of its opportunity – and had a great time in the process. Rebecca Shaffer, enterprise marketing manager for CLA, spent countless hours with WSGA executive director Rob Jansen in preparation for the tournament. “I’ve been working with him since last year on ideas to really maximize our investment in it,” said Shaffer. The firm’s employees and executives became hands-on volunteers, blending in with WSGA officials, engaging with players and spectators. “We wanted to make sure we had a presence so people could put a face with the company name,” said Shaffer.

“It’s been a lot of fun for us. This is just one week but it’s a partnership that lasts all year and it’s been a good one for us.” – REBECCA SHAFFER

FOUR STATE AMATEUR CHAMPS IN FIELD Four past State Amateur champions were in the field this year, and the best performance was turned in by ageless wonder Mark Bemowski of Morningstar GC in Waukesha. Bemowski, 66, who has won the State Amateur six times, he had another respectable finish with a tie for 14th place. Bemowski shot 72-76-77-75–300. The other past champs were Pat Boyle of Merrill Hills CC in Waukesha, who tied for 31st (76-77-70-82–305); Mike McDonald, of Blackstone Creek GC in Germantown, pictured at left, who finished 43rd (75-74-75-84– 308), and two-time champion Bob Gregorski of North Shore GC in Menasha who missed the cut after shooting 79-79.

YOUTH IS SERVED The leaderboard was chock-full of youngsters at the 112th Wisconsin State Amateur Championship. The top six finishers are all current college players – Niebrugge at Oklahoma State, Danielson at Illinois, Robbie Jacobsen at Wisconsin, Alex Gaugert at Minnesota, Matt Ross at Wisconsin and Michael Murphy at Northern Michigan. The only players older than 22 among the top 12 finishers were 53-year-old Ed Dzirbik Jr. and 25-year-old Eric Busalacchi, who finished in a four-way tie for ninth. Also finishing near the top was 16-yearold Sam Madsen of Blackhawk CC in Madison, who finished eighth.

SCORES & STATS Round 2 produced the highest average score of the week at 80.59, which makes Jordan Niebrugge’s 66 on Tuesday even more impressive. The hardest hole on the course during the State Amateur was the 15th, but just barely. No. 15 played .62 strokes over par, followed by No. 7, which played .61 strokes over par. The 16th hole was third at .60 strokes over par. All three are par-4s. The easiest hole was the par-5 opening hole, which was the only hole to play under par for the week at .28 under par. Over 72 holes, the average score at The Bog for all competitors was 78.87, or 6.87 strokes over par. Charlie Danielson tied for the most birdies (17) and most eagles (2), but six-time State Amateur champion Mark Bemowski made the most pars (49) on the way to tying for 14th place. Niebrugge got off to a blazing start at the Championship. Over the first two rounds, he recorded 11 birdies and just two bogeys in shooting 69-66 to take a commanding lead.


Wilford Wehrle

COURTESY OF THE WESTERN GOLF ASSOCIATION

WEHRLE’S THREE-PEAT Several players have won the Wisconsin State Amateur Championship in consecutive years – the most recent being Ryan Quinn, who won in 2001 and repeated in ’02. But only one player in the 112-year history of the event has won it three straight years. Wilford Wehrle, who was born in Wauwatosa and grew up in Racine, won the Wisconsin State Amateur in 1944, ’45 and ’46 and also captured the title in 1937. Recognized as one of the world’s top amateurs during his prime, Wehrle won the 1937 Western Amateur Championship, twice earned low amateur honors at the Western Open and competed in the 1940 Masters Tournament. Wehrle, who passed away in 1991, was a charter member of the Wisconsin State Golf Association Hall of Fame when it was formed in 1964.


Mark Bemowski

Past Champions

Mark Bemowski tips his visor after completing his sixth Wisconsin State Amateur victory in 2005 at Brown County GC in Oneida. Other State Amateur champions, pictured top to bottom on the facing page, are: John Pallin, State Amateur champion in 1975 and ‘78; 1986 and ‘88 winner J.P. Hayes, pictured with his dad Jumbo Hayes, the 1953 State Amateur champion; and Mark Wilson, who won his lone State Amateur title in 1996.

CHAMPION SHI P CHAN GED TO STROK E PLAY I N 1971 The Wisconsin State Amateur Championship has been played since 1901, and it was contested as a match play tournament until 1970. Since that time, Wisconsin’s marquee amateur championship has been a stroke play competition, held over 72 holes, on some of Wisconsin’s finest golf courses. The list of winners since 1970 (right) is an impressive one, including PGA Tour winners and several individuals who left their amateur days behind and now work as PGA professionals at golf facilities around Wisconsin. 14 | JULY 26, 2013 2013 WISCONSIN STATE AMATEUR CHAMPIONSHIP REVIEW

JULY 26, 2013 | 17 112TH WISCONSIN STATE AMATEUR CHAMPIONSHIP | SPONSORED BY CLIFTONLARSONALLEN


OZAUKEE CC TO HOST THE 2014 STATE AMATEUR The Wisconsin State Amateur Championship returns next season to Ozaukee CC, the venerable private club in Mequon. The event is scheduled for July 21-24, 2014. Ozaukee CC hosted the State Amateur four times during the 20th century – most recently in 1989, when David Miley won his only State Amateur title. The other State Amateur winners at Ozaukee were E.P. “Ned” Allis in 1926, Lynford Lardner in 1942 and Walter Atwood in 1962. All but Atwood are members of the Wisconsin State Golf Association Hall of Fame. Founded in 1922, Ozaukee CC features a classic course designed by the legendary architectural team of William Langford and Theodore Moreau. Par-70 Ozaukee measures 6,721 yards from the back tees.
