BRADENTON, FL (April 22, 2016) – Day 2 is in the books at the 2016 Concession Cup and Team USA is seemingly well on their way to retaining the cup, leading Great Britain and Ireland 16-2. On the heels of yesterday's 8-1 route in foursomes Team USA put together another dominant day, winning the four-ball session by the same 8-1 tally.

Like yesterday the Americans got off to a quick start at The Concession Golf Club by putting points on the board with a match one victory. Nathan Smith and Todd White redeemed themselves after losing yesterday with a 2&1 win over Barry Hume and Matt Clark. The only GB&I triumph came once more came from Ben Westgate and Mike Hearne as they defeated Sammy Schmitz and Joe Alfieri 2&1 in match two.

Westgate and Hearne have been the only bright spot for GB&I finishing the team portion of the event 2-0.

The Concessions Cup is a biannual event that brings together many of the best Mid-Amateur, Senior and Super Senior players in the world. The 2016 edition concludes tomorrow with 18 single matches.

ABOUT THE Concession Cup

Created by supporters of amateur golf, The Concession Cup is an event designed to celebrate the game through international competition while giving back to worthy causes. The event is a biennial team competition played between teams comprised of leading male Mid-Amateurs, Senior Amateurs and Super Senior Amateurs from the United States and Great Britain and Ireland.

The Concession Cup Committee will select the participating players through the following categories:
Six (6) Mid-Amateurs, age 25 to 54.
Six (6) Senior Amateurs, age 55 and older.
Two (2) Senior Amateurs, age 65 and older.

The competition is conducted over three days through the traditional team match-play formats of foursome, four-ball and singles. In honor of two of the greatest amateur competitors in the history of the game, a trophy has been commissioned in the names of United States amateur, Bill Campbell and British Amateur, Sir Michael Bonallack – the Campbell/Bonallack trophy will be presented to the winning team at the conclusion of the matches.
