Kansas Retains Virgil Parker Cup
Team Kansas headed into the final day of the 31st Kansas-Nebraska Junior Cup Matches with a three point deficit. Through the first nine holes the outcome looked certain that Nebraska would take home the cup with leads in six of eight matches. However, a late rally by team Kansas ended with both teams having eight points. Matt Percy, Ottawa, sealed the final point with a 15 foot par putt on hole #18 which brings the Virgil Parker Cup back to Lawrence. A special thanks goes out to the membership and staff at Flint Hills National Golf Club for hosting the Kansas-Nebraska Junior Cup! For complete results please click here.
