AT&T Wins 2018 Bay Cup 6-4

Congratulations to AT&T Pebble Beach Junior Golf Association, winners of the 3rd annual Bay Cup! November 11th was smoky and cold but that didn’t prevent anyone from playing amazing golf and having fun. The matches were close with several coming down to the last hole; however, at the end of the day AT&T won the Ryder Cup Match Play tournament 6-4. The teams looked sharp in uniforms provided by Antigua for AT&T and Linksoul for Santa Cruz. Thank you sponsors, parents, players, AT&TJGA, SCJG, and Carmel Valley Ranch for a perfect day.

Learning new drills, playing different courses too and also Santa Cruz Junior Golf with all those matches and tournaments, it gets you used to kind of playing,” Fort said.”
