BOULDER CITY, Nev. (June 22, 2014) -- Ryan McCullough had been hanging around the Top 5 of the SNGA Scratch Division all year. On Sunday, he finally sealed the deal with a victory over Jeremy May in the finals of the SNGA Match Play Championship at Boulder Creek Golf Club.
McCullough beat May 4 & 3, getting off to a great start with a 5 Up lead after 9 Holes. May tried to battle back, but McCullough steady play lead to a solid victory over a solid field. McCullough avoided Southern Nevada Amateur Champion, Kenny Ebalo, when May beat him in the Semifinal Match 1 Up.
