Team NEPGA Retains Remy Cup!
Overall Series at 3-3-1
The seventh annual Remy Cup Matches were played this past Sunday at the beautiful Rhode Island Country Club in Barrington, RI. Eight girls and four boys from the New England PGA Junior TOUR and the Connecticut PGA Junior TOUR competed in a nine hole four-ball contest, a nine hole foursome contest and an overall match contest. We, Team NEPGA, needed nine points to hold the cup for the third year in a row.
Team CTPGA and Team NEPGA were tied 3pts to 3pts after the front nine Four-Ball contest. However, on the back nine it was all Team NEPGA, securing eight points en route to an 11-7 final score victory. The strong field consisted of and a slew of top notch players from the New England Section including Massachusetts Junior Amateur Champion James Imai, Bay State Cup Invitational Boys & Girls Champions Christian Emmerich and Allison Paik, and New England Jr. PGA Champion Emily Nash.
Team New England’s "victory'' allows the Section (NEPGA) to keep the cup in possession as we evened the series at three (Overall Status 3-3-1). Connecticut has now won three matches and lost three. The match was halved in 2015.
The competition was named in honor of Remy, past president of the PGA of America and general manager and director of golf at Okemo Valley Golf Club in Ludlow, Vt. Remy became the first PGA of America President from the New England Section. He served that role in 2009-10. Team NEPGA’s win is special as it was Jim’s birthday on Sunday.View More
