OGA Wins Third Straight PNGA Cup


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

OR-OGA Champions of PNGA Cup

Coming into Friday's singles match Oregon held a 2.5-point lead after Day 1 at Gorge Vale Golf Club in Victoria, B.C. Close on its 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 the first day, the weather was a significant factor with cold, gusting wind and relentless rain forcing the players to evaluate every shot.

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

Leading the way for OGA with convincing wins were former Oregon State Beavers Jillian Carlile of Vancouver, Wash., over Shawna Farmer, of Bellevue (5 & 4), and Brie Stone of Veneta, Ore., 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 things interesting, winning or halving a number of matches Friday, but fell 2.5 points shy of catching the OGA. 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.

The PNGA Cup will be played next year in Idaho. For more information about the 2012 PNGA Cup, visit http://www.thepnga.org/sites/courses/layout9.asp?id=521&page=26704.
