Two Portland teams headed to Cup Finals
The Portland Chapter is sending a strong contingent of 16 players to the LPGA Amateur Cup in Horseshoe Bay, Texas, on Nov. 2-3, after a hard-fought Pacific Qualifier.
Five teams were tied with a total of 7 out of a possible 12 points after 4-ball on Sept. 8 and singles matches on Sept. 9. It was a tense couple hours before "quality of wins" were all tabulated, but Portland's Green Gang, National Champions in 2015, prevailed again, placing 2nd. The Portland Pinot Putters took the fourth and final spot.
The Seattle Tee Hawks (1st) and Emerald City TeeHawks (3rd) round out the teams advancing from match play at Heron Lakes-Greenback.
Great job, also, by Portland's Puttlandia, which finished 8th, and the rest of the 13 teams.
