Widgi head pro let go — Dan Ostrin is no longer the head professional at Bend’s Widgi Creek Golf Club. Ostrin, who had been Widgi’s head pro for eight seasons, was let go from the club last week as part of a restructuring effort, according to the golf club. Widgi assistant pro Josh Bowles has remained on staff, said Brad Hudspeth, Widgi Creek’s general manager.
