Utah PGA Regains Governors Cup!

by Kurt Kragthorpe
Park City - With strong play from Tommy Sharp, Pete Stone and the senior contingent, the Utah Section PGA regained possession of the Governor's Cup in Wednesday's matches with the Utah Golf Association's top amateurs.
The 16-member PGA team took a 20-12 victory at the Promontory Club's Painted Valley Golf Course, a Jack Nicklaus signature design.
The win gives the PGA an all-time lead of 22-5-2, while avenging a defeat in 2012.
The competition was tied 4-4 after the morning foursomes event, but the PGA team took control in the afternoon, which combined individual and four-ball matches in each group. The pros claimed a 10-6 advantage individually and won 6-2 in four-ball play.
Sharp and Stone dominated each session, winning all four available points while not having to play beyond the 15th hole in any match. Zach Johnson, Joseph Summerhays, Tracy Zobell and Ryan Rhees also were big contributors in the at-large division.
The PGA's four senior players provided the decisive points. Jeff Green, Mike Borich, Brad Stone and Tom Rogers, Promontory's director of golf, combined to win 6.5 of eight possible points.
The UGA's stars were Jordan Hammer and Jacob Holt, who played tigether and won all four available points.
The competition was staged with the backdrop of the nearby Rockport fire, but blue skies and pleasant conditions prevailed at the golf course.
