On the second playoff hole, the team from British Columbia Golf (BC Golf) bested the team from the Washington State Golf Association (WSGA) to complete their come-from-behind win at the 8th Annual PNGA Cup, a Ryder Cup-style competition which was held over the past two days at Crane Creek Country Club in Boise, Idaho. This is the second PNGA Cup victory for BC Golf, its other win coming in 2009 which was also held that year at Crane Creek.
After the first day of play yesterday, the WSGA had held a slim lead of one point over the Oregon Golf Association (OGA), and 1.5 points over the Idaho Golf Association (IGA) and BC Golf. Today’s play consisted of singles matches, and the team from BC Golf came roaring out of the gate, with their big guns dominating their matches. Sandy Harper of Port Moody, BC, defeated Chuck Conn of Eagle, Idaho (IGA), 8&7; Christina Proteau of Port Alberni, BC defeated Shawn Farmer of Bellevue, Wash. (WSGA), 4&3; and Pacific Northwest Golf Hall of Famers Alison Murdoch of Victoria and Doug Roxburgh of Vancouver (BC) both completed decisive victories in their matches. On the day, BC Golf won a staggering 8.5 points.
