KENOSHA, Wis. (July 19, 2012) — Thursday’s final-round of the 111th WSGA State Amateur Championship proved to be the biggest moment to date in Brady Strangstalien’s golfing career.

The timing was fitting considering the biggest event so far in the 24-year-old Westby native’s life will come tonight.

On the eve of his marriage to high school sweetheart Whitney Stoker, Strangstalien carded an even-par 72 at The Club at Strawberry Creek to finish tournament play at 6-under 282, good enough to edge Sam Frank (74) by one stroke for the title.

ABOUT THE Wisconsin State Amateur

This event has been conducted annually since 1901. The format, originally match play, was changed to a 72-hole stroke-play event in 1971. The State Amateur, contested over four consecutive days, is annually conducted on one of Wisconsin’s finest courses and continues to be recognized as the premier amateur tournament held in Wisconsin. A three-man team competition, the Yule Cup, where players representing the same club compete for the Cup, is also held. To be eligible, players must have a WSGA Handicap Index of 9.4 or less.
