Swiss PGA Apprentice Championship 2018


This Year’s Apprentice Championship took place from the 5th to the 7th of August at GC Lipperswil. With exceptionally dry conditions, the course posed a real challenge to all participants.

The event was organized by the Swiss PGA apprentices as part of their 3-year-apprenticeship program. The 3-day event included a fantastic ProAM on Sunday and two rounds on Monday and Tuesday playing the Swiss PGA Apprentice Championship.

With two solid Rounds of 70 & 71 (a total of 5 under par, second year Apprentice Ken Benz claimed the title of “Apprentice Champion 2018”. Rafael Hodler finished in second place, 3 Strokes behind with a total of two under par, whilst Roxane Scharl and Linda Roos tied for 3rd on 149 (+3).

Great thanks to the Swiss PGA and GC Lipperswil for hosting us and for the great support!
