Follow Live Scoring With BC Golf Team In PNGA Cup
The 14th annual PNGA Cup is now underway at Crosswater GC in Sunriver, Oregon. British Columbia Golf is in competition with teams from the Idaho Golf Association, Oregon Golf Association and Washington State Golf Association.
The annual Ryder Cup-style competition is held on a rotating basis throughout the region, with this year’s event being held in Oregon and hosted by the Oregon Golf Association.
Each association has selected a 12-person team consisting of eight men and four women. The representation includes four mid-amateur men of 25 years of age or older, two men of 40 years or older, two senior men of 55 years or older, two mid-amateur women of 25 years or older and two senior women of 50 years or older.
The two-day competition includes four-ball and foursome matches the first day and singles matches on the second and final day. With three matches for each player, the championship allows each competitor to compete against players from each of the other associations. With both men’s and women’s scores used to determine the team result, it is the only known event of its kind in the U.S.
The Oregon Golf Association will be attempting to defend its title, having won the event for the 7th time last year. British Columbia Golf has won the competition on 3 occasions, in 2009, '13 and '14.
