TEAM LOUISIANA WINS 2017 JUNIOR RIVER CUP

Choudrant, LA     September 24, 2017 

Team Louisiana defeated Team Mississippi 30-10 in the 2017 Junior River Cup Matches at Squire Creek Country Club.  The best junior golfers in the Bayou State successfully defended the title won by the 2016 squad at Diamondhead Country Club in Mississippi to make it back-to-back victories.  Team Louisiana set the tone early and took a 6-4 lead after the Saturday morning Four-Ball matches, and they really turned it on in the afternoon Foursome matches, winning eight out of a possible ten points.  Team Louisiana's 14-6 lead after day one was comfortable, but with 20 points up for grabs in Sunday's singles matches, they needed to again play their best golf to secure the win.  Play their best golf is exactly what they did. Team Louisiana won 16 out of 20 singles matches, including a 4-0 sweep in the 12-13 year-old division.  "I’m extremely proud of the way our team competed and represented our state with class.  The kids had a blast and made some great memories.  Junior golf in Louisiana continues to trend in the right direction, and we were able to showcase that… Thanks to Squire Creek for the wonderful hospitality," said Louisiana Team Captain and LGA Assistant Executive Director Logan Ray.
