With the Golden State's bragging rights on the line, the SCGA snapped a four event losing streak as the cup will head south for the first time since 2008.
The SCGA pulled out to a lead on Thursday morning at La Quinta CC, earning 16.5 points to the NCGA’s 13.5 in Round 1 Four-Ball matches. The first two groups out for the SCGA posted vital points, as Kathy Kurata/Caryn Wilson and Jakeishya Le/Erica Wang combined to tally five points in their Four-Ball matches. Later on, Nick Geyer/Stewart Hagestad cashed in three full points for the eventual champs.
Needing to mount a epic comeback during the Singles matches, the NCGA battled hard but fell short as they tallied 28 singles points to the SCGA's 32. The final count score was 48.5 - 41.5 in favor of the SCGA.
The Cup utilizes a format similar to the Ryder Cup – three points are available for each match, one point for the front nine, one point for the back nine and one point for the overall match (any matches that are halved earn a 1/2 point).
The California Amateur Cup is a biennial competition that pits the best NCGA tournament players against the top SCGA players, and encourages year-long competition amongst tournament players, camaraderie and a friendly battle between regional golf associations.
