LA QUINTA, Calif. -- The Northern California Golf Association are up 21.5 to 14.5 over their opponents from Southern California at Rancho La Quinta Country Club in the 9th Seaver Cup Matches.

Created in 1998 at the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa as a biennial competition that brings together the best players from Northern and Southern California, the Seaver Cup is named in honor of the late Charles Seaver.

The NCGA team is looking for its third victory in a row, while both teams are looking to break the current tie in overall victories since the tournament's beginning.

The Northern squad won five of six morning Four-Ball matches, including an impressive 5-and-4 victory from Jeff Wilson and Michael Tolladay over SCGA heavyweights Tim Hogarth and Jeffrey Fortson. The Wilson/Tolladay duo won their afternoon foursomes match 2-up over Dan Sullivan and Joe Doody.

John McClure and John Pate were the only SCGA players to win in the morning, taking down Dale Bouguennec and Gary Vanier 6-and-5.

Singles matches will wrap things up on Friday.

ABOUT THE Seaver Cup Matches

The Seaver Cup was created in 1998 at the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa as a biennial competition that brings together the best players from Northern and Southern California. The intra-state competition was named in the honor of Charles Seaver, one of the most successful and legendary golfers in California amateur golf lore.

Charlie Seaver is one of two amateur to hold the NCGA, SCGA, and California Amateur titles at the same time, accomplishing this feat in 1933-34 (the other being George Von Elm who pulled out the same feat in 1925). After graduating from Stanford University, Seaver was the shining example of amateur golf in California.
