PEBBLE BEACH, CA (October 18, 2016) -- The NCPGA may have lost the Hanna-Wehrman Cup again, but they held their own in the Staedler-Jetter Cup senior competition.

Team NCPGA wrapped up its fifth straight title, defeating the NCGA, 15-13. Clinching the cup for the NCPGA were a pair of tough wins by Shawn McEntee (1-up) and John Grund (2 and 1).

The NCGA, which was hoping to break the NCPGA’s win streak, got victories from Scott Anderson, Mark Morgan, Bob Thomason, Frank Pieper and 2015 NCGA Super Senior Player of the Year Herb Jensen.
