Team Virginia is leading Team West Virginia after the first day round of West Virginia/Virginia Team Matches, hosted by the West Virginia Golf Association (WVGA) on the Cobb Course at The Resort at Glade Springs. This is the 40th annual battle for “Ye Ol’ Feudin’ Stick.”

On the first day, the fourball round saw West Virginia take the lead 4.5 to 2.5.  The foursome round saw Virginia take a clean sweep of all seven matches, leaving the final first score at 9.5 to 4.5 in favor of Virginia.  Sunday’s Single Matches will determine this year’s winner of “Ye Ole’ Feudin’ Stick.”

Each team has eight players under age 49, four players between 50 and 64 and two players over 65.  The West Virginia team is led by Captain Chris Slack.

“We love hosting this event early in the year since it gives us a chance to showcase the course,” said Kyle Long, head golf professional at Glade Springs.  “The weather looks good and ‘Ye Ol’ Feudin’ Stick’ is still up for grabs, so we’re hoping for a strong finish Sunday.”

“This event is all about the team aspects of golf,” said WVGA Executive Director Chris Slack.  “Players getting to know other golfers from ‘across the border’ during one of the most fun weekends of the year is something they’ll remember for a long time.”

Singles matches begin at 8:00 a.m. Sunday.
