Gregg Marshall has "magic" to help pro-am partner win

WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) -- They call it magic, and this group has a lot of it.

Gregg Marshall and his team play in the Wichita Open Pro-Am each year, and they have a special gift. It's one of the worst kept secrets: whoever golfs with Marshall on Wednesday, ends up at the top of the leader board on Sunday.

His pro partner Harry Higgs heard the rumors.

"Yeah, it wasn't until we were but 10 feet away from the first tee when they told me that they played three pro-ams, two winners: Ollie Schniederjans and Aaron Wise, so yeah, I'm looking forward to being the third out of four that they've done," Higgs said.

Marshall is known for his competitive spirit, but that's actually not what drives him on this course.

"We don't look to win the tournament, we just set out to have a really good time. Basically, it's just the camaraderie, it's building a confidence within the group and we're having a big time," he said.

A good time comes naturally when the entire group plays above its potential. Furthermore, according to Higgs, the group may have another professional in amateur clothing.

"He's played really really well!" Higgs said of Marshall. "I've joked with him that he's not recruiting nearly enough or working out with the team nearly enough, because his golf game is really good!"

All joking aside, it's the they call it magic...And this group has a lot of it.

all joking aside, it's the positivity that continues to propel all of his groups toward the tops of leader boards.

"That kind of mojo, that kind of good luck karma will help for sure!" Higgs said.

But Marshall made sure he remembers the legacy he's stepping into.

"No pressure on him but hopefully, it'll give him some good karma going forward," he said.

Higgs hopes to prove these guys winners once again by the end of the week. He tees off round one at 1:05 on Thursday.
