Weber Nips Aggies in Match Play
Two Utah colleges, Weber State and Utah State, faced each other in the first round of the Cypress Ridge Match Play Championship in California and Weber got the best of the Aggies, 3 ½ to 1 ½.
Match play used to be a common format for collegians years ago, but stroke play gained favor and there are very few match play tournaments being conducted anymore.
