The University of Georgia strengthened its stranglehold on the PGA Tour even tighter at The Honda Classic when Russell Henley claimed his 2nd victory in a playoff.
The starting field of 64 players at the WGC Accenture Match Play Championship consisted of 30 former NCAA golfers and current Rivals-Cuppers.
While it’s way too early to start speculating about which NCAA program may have the most success this year on the Web.Com Tour, it’s not too early to take a look at the field.
I created the Rivals Cup in an effort to make a home for promoting the collegiate affiliations of professional athletes. While that is not changing, the focus is going to be narrowed a bit.
In 2002, the eGolf Professional Tour was formed in a South Charlotte (NC) living room, based on the thought that a better developmental tour for aspiring PGA TOUR players could be more reality than reach. Twelve years later, that same tour is thriving as the de facto No. 3 tour in the United States, with 20-24 events annually and over $13 million paid in prize money since the start of the 2009 season alone.
