Tournament Results

 

Racine, WI - This past weekend 52 players from the Golfweek Amateur Tour traveled to Racine Country Club representing the Chicago and Milwaukee Tours to play in a "Ryder Cup" style match.  Players earned their way to play in the event through their season long accomplishments with captain's picks rounding out the team.  Wilson Staff partnered with the event to provide the players with apparel and gear to elevate the experience.

 

In 2014, the event started with a Chicago victory at Bull Valley Golf Club.  In 2015, a heavily favored Chicago team traveled to Racine to take on a hungry and focused Milwaukee Team.  Both teams were excited to get the event started and see who was the top team in 2015.

 

It didn't take long for Team Milwaukee to get going!  John Beyer, playing in his first Border Battle, holed out from 60 yards on the opening hole, a par 5 for an eagle 3 and it was all Milwaukee from there!

 

The FourBall matches were a close group of matches as Milwaukee finished with a slight early lead 7.5 to 5.5 and were lead by their A & B flights (going 4-1-1).

 

The Modified Alternate Shot matches proved to be the key moment of the weekend.  With 13 points available in the afternoon matches, Milwaukee walked away with 8.5 points including victories in 3 of the last 4 matches of the day.  

 

As the players came together for dinner, the Milwaukee team held a lead of 16-10, which was a big turnaround from last year (when they trailed 14-8). However with 26 points on the line in the second day Singles matches, the match had a long way to go.

 

Day 2, started out similar to day 1 - as Milwaukee raced out and put early points on the board, winning 5 of the 8 opening matches.  Chicago fought back in the middle portion of the singles matches, but when Chris McCreary closed out Match 46 with a 3 & 2 victory, Milwaukee clinched the cup!

 

The final score of the match was 31-21, which matched the 10 point victory from the 2014 Chicago victory!

 

The Milwauke A Flight consisting of Joe Thom, Eric Schoo, Aaron Meyers, Andy Bailey, Lon Von Asten & Keenan Quick earned the Team MVP honors as they won 9.5 points with a combined record of 9-1-2.
