UGA Upsets PGA in Governor’s Cup Match, 17-15
In a rare upset the Utah Golf Association edged the Utah Section of the PGA in the annual Utah Governor’s Cup Matches held at Wolf Creek Resort, 17 to 15. When a match is that close in the team score it leaves many pros thinking of ‘what could have been.’ All that was needed for the Pros to get a tie was to reverse the outcome of just one match.
The difference came in the four senior positions where the UGA won six of eight possible points. In fact, the PGA Seniors never won a full point in any of the matchdes, but managed ties in four of the eight matchups. Hall of Famer Todd Barker was the top scorer for the UGA Seniors with one win and two halves.
No player on either team swept their points. High point men for the amateurs were Brad Millard and Todd Barker with two each, and Mark Owen and Dustin Volk each won two points for the pros.
The pros generally win this annual match about three out of every four times.
So whoop it up amateurs!
