West Rallies to Win Canon Cup


The West team made AJGA and Canon Cup history Thursday, as they won 19 of 20 matches to beat out the East by a score of 30 to 19 at the Biltmore Forest Country Club in Asheville, N.C.
Anchored by Anthony Kim, the win marks the second in a row for the West in this Ryder Cup-style format for juniors, featuring the top 24 junior players from the country.
The 11-point margin of victory also marks the largest spread in the tournaments history.
Said Kim, who beat a strong Chan Song Wongluekiet 3-and-2 on Sunday: I birdied No. 1 from about a foot, so I knew that it was going to be a good day. I knew that he would have some pressure on him with his Canon Cup record (9-1-1), so I was really happy for a chance to play him.
The boys played Biltmore Forest at 6,602-yards all week, while the girls played it at 5,957-yards.
