Appleton’s Ryan Helminen’s 10th place finish at the PGA Professional Championship on Wednesday in New York, qualified him for his third consecutive PGA Championship in late July.
Helminen is a Teaching Pro at Ridgeway Country Club in Neenah. He finished four-over-par during his final round on Thursday at Turning Stone in Verona, New York. He finished 4-under par for the four round tournament and tied for 10th.
The top 20 qualifiers all secured a spot in the PGA Championship Field. Rich Berberian Jr. rallied to win the event, holing a 30-foot birdie putt on the final hole for a one-stroke victory.
