By PGA of America, 09/16/18, 1:45PM EDT


The Mallard Creek All-Stars are Championship-bound for the fourth year in a row! Captain Jim Wise, PGA, and Coach Chris Reed have led their All-Stars to victory again, complete with five returning 2017 All-Star team members.

In the Saturday morning session, the Northern Ohio PGA Section Champion Mallard Creek All-Stars captured their first win with a 12-0 victory over the Western New York PGA Section Champion Erie Palmer All-Stars. The Southern Ohio PGA Section Champion Columbus 1 All-Stars led the Tri-State PGA Section Champion Sharon League All-Stars 9 ½ to 2 ½, leaving both the Northern and Southern Ohio teams with 1-0 winning records.
