Sheboygan’s Tim Schroyer recently qualified for the PGA Professional Championship.
The assistant golf pro at Pine Hills Country Club was one of five men that advanced out of the 36-hole stroke play Wisconsin Section last Tuesday.
The 27-year-old Schroyer finished in third place with a 2-over-par 146 at Green Bay Country Club.
As a result, Schroyer will make his debut at nationals at the PGA Golf Club in Port St. Lucie, Fla., in April after failing to qualify the previous four years.
“I just had a good ball-striking week, kind of didn’t really make any bad mistakes and scored better than I usually do, I guess,” he said.
Schroyer, who was born in Daytona Beach, was finishing college at Florida Gulf Coast when Pine Hills reached out to the school seeking those interested in working in Wisconsin.
“I just wanted to see this part of the country,” Schroyer said. “Whistling Straits is right next door. They just had the PGA Championship and obviously the Ryder Cup was scheduled for this year, and I saw there was such great golf here and wanted to experience something different.”
He says he is glad he made the choice to move up here, especially now.
“Extremely happy,” Schroyer said. “It’s a beautiful area. Summers are great here, at least. I’m happy to have played so many great golf courses and be at such a great facility with a great boss, and I’ve definitely learned a lot.
“It was a very good decision on my part, I think.”
