Inaugural MAPGA TopGolf Team Challenge

WenPetren and King prove to be top contenders

Congratulations to Steve WenPetren (The SW Golf Academy) and Kelly King (The SW Golf Academy) for winning the inaugural Middle Atlantic Professional Golf Association (MAPGA) TopGolf Team Challenge at TopGolf-Loudoun besting 23 other teams.

The competition consisted of two games of stroke play played under TopGolf’s “Top Contender Elite” format, with the four highest scoring teams advancing to match play.

During stroke play, Ryan Clarkin (Creighton Farms) and Bryan Zell (Westfields) achieved the highest score of the night and a #1 match play seed with an astounding 516 points.

However, in a stunning upset, Clarkin and Zell lost in the semi-finals to No. 4 seed Jonathan Schoenfeld (PGA Member) and Jimmy Steigelman (Fauquier Springs) on Schoenfeld’s final shot.

In the other semi-final match, WenPetren and King (No. 2 seed) defeated the No. 3 seed team of Geoff Montross (TPC Potomac) and John Madden (River Bend), and then went on to defeat Schoenfeld and Steigelman in the finals.

Special thanks to Joey Walker, PGA and Yong Joo, PGA for hosting the event, as the players all had a great night of camaraderie and competition.
