WPGA Recaptures Rain Soaked Nelthorpe Cup
The Nelthorpe Cup, an annual match between the WPGA’s best playing professionals and the top amateurs from the Wisconsin State Golf Association was conducted on Friday, August 7th at Oneida Golf & Country Club.
The morning singles matches were closely contested and at the end of the morning the WPGA had a slim 26-22 lead. Rain began falling about halfway through the morning and continued throughout the day. The afternoon four-ball matches were halted about midway through the round due to unplayable conditions on a few water drenched fairways and greens. The committee determined that all four-ball matches would be limited to 9 holes. Six of the matches were already determined for 9 holes and the overall score was even at 30-30. That left two matches that had to go back on the course and resume play in a sideways rain, in order to complete their match.
The team of Craig Czerniejewski and Pat Steffes (WPGA) parred the 8th hole to win their match 2&1 against Matt Ross and Kyle Driscoll (WSGA) putting the WPGA ahead 32-30. It all then came down to the final match on the course. With Eddie Wajda and Josh Udelhofen (WSGA) clinging to a one up lead on number nine over Andy Podolak and Erik Stenseth (WPGA). When Eddie missed his long birdie putt it opened the door for Andy and Erik. Andy then made a 15 foot downhill birdie putt to win the hole and halve the nine hole match, giving the WPGA its final margin of victory.
