Scottsdale, Arizona -Congratulations to  the team of PGA Professional Brian Cairns from the Fox Hills Learning Center and his amateur partners from Orchard Lake Country Club Kathleen Martin, LeeAnn Woodruff and Deborah Herpich on capturing the 2016 We Ko Pa Pro Am presented by Linksoul !

The event kicked off with the opening cocktail party on Sunday evening at the  We Ko Pa Resort & Conference Center. The We Ko Pa Resort & Conference Center is the only AAA Four Diamond resort with spa and casino in Scottsdale, located only 25 minutes from Scottsdale. They also have two of the top rated golf courses in Arizona, the Cholla Course and the Saguaro Course, which were in fantastic condition all week.

All of the participants received their tee gift package with 3 apparel pieces courtesy of Linksoul at this opening party.

The teams took to the Saguaro Course Monday morning in the 2 Net Best Ball Format. It was the team from Walnut Creek with professional Jared Cooper and his amateur partners Scott Schueller, Chad Bowles and Mark Petroff that took home top honors on Monday and jumped out to the early with a round of (-15 under ) 127.

It was in the second round on the Cholla Course that the team of PGA Professional Brian Cairns from the Fox Hills Learning Center and his amateur partners from Orchard Lake Country Club Kathleen Martin, LeeAnn Woodruff and Deborah Herpich made their move finishing first this day with a (-14 under par) round of 130 in the “One Gross / One Net” format.

This gave them a 6 shot advantage heading into the final round back on the Saguaro. They were able to put together a solid round of 135 ( -7 under)  which was good enough to capture the Overall Championship.

Finishing 5 shots back in second place overall we had the teams of professional Bill Wilson from Heritage Glen Golf Club and his amateur partners Don Gunden, Rick Depauw and Tim Cavanagh along with the team of professional Mark Matz from Scalawags Golf Club and his amateur partners Justin VandeVrede, Larry VandeVrede and Dale VandeVrede.
