Northwood and Briarwood locked up Saturday afternoon in day one of the "The Cup Matches" golf tourney at Northwood Country Club. Each respective country club picked twelve of their better golfers to determine who will have bragging rights for the next year, and after day one Briarwood holds an 8-4 lead.
Briarwood whipped Northwood on their own course by taking four out of six matches, but one of the surprises of the day came as MCC's Daniel Boles and Clinton Hale dropped their match to Northwood's David Ray and Eddie Brown by five strokes with four holes left to play.
Being the first year for the tourney, Northwood golf pro, Jimy Gamblin said there may be some changes to the format in the future, but both clubs were very excited about the chance to get together for a little friendly competition. "We see this as a very good thing for the clubs, and it will even carry on through the year within the clubs because it will create competition for the chance to represent in the upcoming annual event."
In other matches, Colton Tisdale and Rex Gentry downed Chuck Rea and Jimmy Carle in a tightly contested affair, one up. Joey Mabry and Tony Polizzi downed Ed Broone and Earl Aycock by seven strokes, and Jack Combast and Benji Baskin jumped on Kelly Swain and Scott Morgan, winning by two strokes with one hole to play.
The only other victory for Northwood came as Judge Little and Johnny Dement outlasted Billy McWilliams and Willie Frazier by two strokes, carrying through the last hole.
Northwood will have the opportunity to return the favor tommorrow as they visit Briarwood's course. Tee time is at 1:00p, and the format switches to individual match play.
