After years at Cambridge Golf Club the PGA of Ontario moved their Mixed Team Series north to The Georgian Bay Club.  The picturesque course has been a frequented stop by the PGA of Ontario over the years, but it was the first time hosting the Mixed Team Series. Two-player teams, one female Professional and one male Professional, played a scramble format, on Monday, for the notoriously highly contested title.  
 
The five-time Mixed Team Series Champion GW King and one-time Champion Megan Chapman took the lead early with an impressive bogey-free 9-under 62, and it looked like the remaining teams would be playing for second spot.  The duo from the Academy at The Georgian Bay Club had never played together in the Mixed Team Series before, but that seemed to be the winning combination of the day because another first time team came into the clubhouse in the second to last group and spoiled the party.  Angela Schweishelm (The Georgian Bay Club) and partner Danny King (The Performance Academy at Magna) put together a very impressive round to take the lead by two shots.  
“I had asked Danny to play last year but he had a scheduling conflict,” Schweishelm said after collecting their share of the $3000 purse.  “We promised that we would make it happen this year, and here we are.”  
 
The pair started the round with back-to-back birdies, and after a brief stumble on the 6th, it was clear sailing for the rest of the round.  They finished the day with an incredible ten birdies and an eagle, to take the 2016 Mixed Team Series title at 11-under 60.  “Everything was working for us today,” Danny King recounted. “Our ball striking…off the tee…we were hitting greens…Angela made just about every putt she stood over.  It was a really fun day.”  
 
The Georgian Bay Club continued their strong showing with Adam Ferraro (The Georgian Bay Club) and partner Carrie Vaughan (The Clublink Academy at Glen Abbey) finishing 6-under T3, tied with teams Sarah Boyce & Ian Leggatt (Summit Golf & CC), and Sarah Gereaux & Sheldon Friske (Thornhill Golf & CC).
