Team South took The Little General Cup for the fourth consecutive year at the 12th annual North-South Junior Matches, presented by Little General Stores and hosted by the West Virginia Golf Association (WVGA).
The final score was 12.5 to 11.5, based on a format that included nine holes of scramble play, nine holes of modified foursomes and nine holes of singles matches. “The Cup wasn’t decided until the final hole of the final group,” said WVGA Tournament Manager – Youth Operations Lucas Ware.
The 24 players represented the top junior players in West Virginia based on 2021 points. Two players from each team finished with perfect 3-0 records, including Taylor Sargent of Milton and Savannah Hawkins of Hurricane, playing for Team South, and Argyle Downes of Charles Town and Bryson Beaver of Elkview, playing for Team North.
The matches took place at The Resort at Glade Springs. The Resort’s Head Golf Pro Kyle Long said, “We pride ourselves on growing the game of golf overall, and especially junior golf, so this is one of the events we most look forward to hosting. We always look forward to this event and the junior tour later this summer.”
“This event is all about the team aspects of golf,” Ware said. “Players getting to know other junior golfers from around the state during one of the most fun weekends of the year is something they’ll remember forever.”
In addition to our presenters, Little General Stores, Bulldog Creative Services, Summit Community Bank and Andy and Jennifer Johnson were team sponsors.
