Last week’s trivia question:


Earlier this month, a 14-year-old Milwaukee boy by the name of Zach Nash disqualified himself a couple of hours after winning a junior Wisconsin PGA Tournament. Why did he disqualify himself?


Answer: He had one too many clubs in his bag. The penalty for breaking the rule, called rule 4-4, is two strokes for each hole played with more than 14 clubs, with a maximum of four penalty strokes. But since he didn’t notice his extra club during the tournament, a penalty wasn’t added. That meant he signed an incorrect scorecard, which he knew disqualified him.


Winner: Ron Weber, Ellison Bay
