Euro Cup – Day 1 Matches

ST. ANDREWS, SCOTLAND – The matches for Day 1 among Team USA, Team Canada, and Team Fife will be played in a three-ball format. For each of the 14 matches there will be two points at stake. The team with the most points at the end of the three days will win the John Clark trophy. In all the years of competition, Team USA has never been victorious, but the 12 young gentlemen and two young ladies on the 2013 Team USA will look to change that in just a few days time. Here are you matches for Wednesday, July 31.

 RECAP:

The weather was very good for Scotland standards as the first day of the Euro Junior Golf  Cup unfolded at Scotscraig Golf Club. Many great matches were played by Team USA, Team Canada, and Team Fife. At the end of day Canada won the most points (19) and is currently holding a six-point lead in the matches.

Team USA got off to a hot start with Conner Kumpula of Albany, Ore., winning his match against Team Fife and then halving his match against Team Canada. The next two matches went the way of Team Canada and Scotland putting Team USA down for the first time in the matches.

Tyler Dierwechter of Oldsmar, Fla., played exceptionally well today winning both of his matches. He did it in convincing fashion as well and did not have to play the 17th or 18th holes in either match.

Grant Burton of Fallston, Md., won a half-point for Team USA after a gutsy comeback including a birdie on No. 18 to square the match.

Nicholas Russell of Hilton Head Island, S.C., continued his dominance in match play winning both of his matches. He got off to a hot start to his round making four birdies in his first six holes. Russell will look to continue his hot play in tomorrow’s matches.

Team USA ended the day in third place with 10 total points. Team Fife is in second with 13 points and Team Canada leads the matches with an impressive 19 points.

The second day of the Euro Junior Golf Cup will take place at Leven Links Golf Club on Thursday, August 1st with the first match starting at 10:00am local time.
