MAYETTA, KS (August 10, 2014) — It was no contest for Brad Nurski at the 2014 Midwest Cup. Representing his home state of Missouri, the two-time Missouri Mid-Amateur winner shot 14-under over three rounds at Firekeeper Golf Course in Mayetta, KS to win the event by nine shots.

Nurski shot 66 and 65 on Friday and Saturday, only needing a 71 on Sunday to still claim a large margin of victory.

Finishing in second place was the steady Danny Behm of Wisconsin, who shot rounds of 70, 71, and 70 to finish four strokes ahead of a slew of players tying for third place.

In the team portion of the event, a thrilling neck-and-neck finish that came down to the final groups took place. Team Minnesota closed with a flourish to score 391 points, overtaking first- round leader Missouri with 379 points. After a one-hour rain delay on Sunday, in which team captain Andy Jacobson realized his team was well behind, he gave the troops a "stay focused" directive. The team responded and the Cup returned to Minnesota for the second time in three years.
