UGA upsets the PGA at the 2012 Governor’s Cup!

Author: N

The 2012 Governor’s Cup matches took place Wednesday at Wolf Creek Golf Club. The Amateurs were able to do what few Amateur teams have been able to do in the past, capture the CUP! The final tally was 17 to 15 for the Amateurs. The PGA has dominated this competition since the inception in 1984, so needless to say there were many smiles amongst the UGA players.

The morning alternate shot format set the tone for the upset. The UGA took the lead after the morning session 5 to 2 . The team of Mason Casper & Nick Drost took out the top two players from the PGA Zach Johnson and Pete Stone 2&1 in the first match. This seemed to create some momentum that was evident throughout the day. The two teams of seniors from the UGA swept both points in the morning as well.

The UGA had several new faces join the competition and they didn’t disappoint. Brad Millard, Cole Ogden and Mason Casper were some of the new guys that contributed to the upset. In the end it was a perfect combination of veterans and rookies that contributed to the win. The UGA victory should help in this competition in the future. This should fire up the PGA and bring out the best in all the players in years to come.

Congratulations UGA!
