Several golfers went 2-0 for the SNGA in one team match and one individual match including UNLV Golf captain A.J. McInerney and defending Nevada State High School Champion Jack Trent.

Scott Greer from the PGA went 2-o in the senior division while Tom Fischer went 1-0-1 for the PGA.

“This event brings together the amateur body and professional body and on the same stage,” says Tanner Bown, SNGA Director of Competition. “Hopefully this creates a great rivalry for years to come.”
