7th Annual PNGA Cup Final Results

Victoria, B.C. (May 4, 2012) – After the final individual match play competition at the 7th annual Pacific Northwest Golf Association (PNGA) Cup, Oregon Golf Association (OGA) captured its third title in a row and its fifth overall.

Coming into the day, Oregon was comforted with a 2.5-point lead from its stellar play on day one. Close on their heels was British Columbia Golf, followed by Idaho Golf Association (3.5 points back) and the Washington State Golf Association (4 points back).

Similar to day one of competition, the weather played a significant factor for play, with cold, gusting wind and relentless rain forcing the players to evaluate every shot with it in mind.

In the two Mid-Amateur Divisions, the OGA set their tone by stealing 5 out of a possible 6 points from their competitors, a number that kept them ahead of the other associations for the better part of the day.

Leading the way with convincing wins for OGA were former Oregon State Beavers Jillian Carlile, of Vancouver, over Shawna Farmer, of Bellevue (5&4), and Brie Stone, of Veneta, over Leslie Folsom, of Seattle (6&5). Both OGA players gained critical points in maintaining a slim lead.

BC Golf made a late charge to keep the competition interesting and try to steal the Cup back from OGA, winning or halving a number of matches on the final hole only to fall 2.5 points shy of the two-time defending champions.

Despite excellent play by the Washington State Golf Association and Idaho Golf Association, these teams could only muster 10 and 8.5-point totals, respectively, against an extremely talented field of 25+ men and women.

The PNGA Cup will now move to Idaho in 2013.
