WALLACE, NC (April 3, 2017) -- Two teams of
the best playing amateurs and PGA Professionals
from the state of North Carolina met for the 23rd
time in a friendly team match play event called
the "Tar Heel Cup." River Landing Country Club
located in Wallace, NC is hosting this event for
the third time on its River Course.
The PGA Professional team won each of the
first day's four-ball matches where the better
score of two partners for each hole is the one
that counts. Each match was worth one point.
Day One Match Results
Scooter Buhrman/Savio Nazareth won 3&2
Josh Nichols (a)/David Sargent (a)
Chris Haarlow/Michael Hutcheon won 4&3
over Uly Grisette (a)/Lionell Sutton (a)
Larry George/Cory Schneider won 4&2 over
David Gies (a)/Dustin Moore (a)
Nick Jacobi/Matt Vick won 1 up over Scott
Harvey (a)/ Paul Tucker (a)
Despite this early lead, the amateurs should
feel confident of their chances for a comeback
due to recent history as they've won four of the
last five events. While the tide has flowed in the
amateurs' direction of late, the Professionals still
lead the series with a record of 13-6-3.
Day two will feature eight singles matches in
the morning. 6½ points are needed to win the
matches, and the amateurs will retain the cup
with a 6-point halve.
