Montana Cup 2015 Day One Results

Posted: Updated:

The first day of the Montana Cup at Hiland Golf Club in Billings, Montana is complete.  The Montana Cup is a unique event where the top 12 amateurs in the state compete against the top 12 professionals.  The amateurs qualify for the event through the State Amateur, which was held last week at Meadow Lark Country Club in Great Falls.  The professionals qualify through a season-long points system where points are awarded for several tournaments throughout the season.  The morning session of the Montana Cup is a two-man best ball match play format.  The afternoon consists two man teams again, but in chapman format.  One point is awarded for winning the front nine, one for the back nine, and one for the 18-hole total.

The amateurs captured the majority of the morning matches 10.5 to 7.5.  The amateur teams were down early in many matches, but rallied to take the lead.  The first amateur team of Connor Miele and Justin Ahlers lost the front nine, and found themselves down four after twelve holes.  Miele and Ahlers won hole thirteen, and proceeded to tie the match after winning the 18th hole.  For the most part, this momentum remained for the amateurs in the morning matches.  Brandon McIver and Bill Dunn carried were the main contributors winning all three points in their morning match.

The amateurs continued to play well in the afternoon matches.  Tom Swanson and Ryan Porch, who won all the points available in their match, highlighted the afternoon.  The amateurs won the afternoon with a score of 11.5 to 6.5.  The amateurs have a 22-14 lead heading into tomorrow.

Tomorrow is the final day of the Montana Cup. Twelve singles matches will determine the final 36 points of the Montana Cup.
