PNGA Cup Matches: British Columbia bids for 2nd straight
DUPONT, Wash. (May 9, 2014) -- In difficult playing conditions that included sideways rain and colder than normal temperatures, Team British Columbia Golf took command after the first day of play in the 9th PNGA Cup in their bid to repeat as champions. The Ryder Cup-style matches are being held at The Home Course in DuPont, Wash., and feature 48 of the finest amateur golfers representing the Washington, Idaho, Oregon and British Columbia Golf associations.
In the morning’s Four-Ball matches, Team BC Golf jumped to an early lead by winning five of the 12 matches. Team IGA and Team WSGA were tied for second with two and a half points each, while Team OGA had two points.
Team BC Golf won three points in the afternoon Foursomes matches and holds a solid point and a half lead over Team WSGA, which won four points in the afternoon to hold second place alone. Team IGA, which hosted the matches last year, is in third place with five and a half points, while Team OGA sits at four points.
British Columbia Golf will be attempting to defend its PNGA Cup title, having won last year on the second hole of a playoff against Team WSGA, when the matches were held at Crane Creek Country Club in Boise, Idaho. British Columbia Golf also won the PNGA Cup in 2009.
