It’s not even 2024 yet, but according to the Northern California PGA, Jason Schmuhl already has one victory in the new year.
Schmuhl, head professional at Windsor Golf Club, defeated Steve Hummel of Wolf Run Golf Club in Reno and Ryan Williams of Woodbridge Golf and Country Club in the 2024 NCPGA Pro Series season opener at Cordevalle Golf Club in San Martin.

Schmuhl has captured more than 25 NCPGA tournaments, including the Northern California PGA Section Professional Championship five times, the 2015 Northern California PGA Section Match Play Championship, the 2018 SCPGA Senior-Junior Championship and has qualified for and played in several PGA Tour events.
