he’d trade them all for one first-place medal,” NCPGA co-captain Chris Bitticks recalled. The NCPGA granted that wish, building on an 8-6 lead


through two sessions and securing 7 1/2 of the 14 points available in singles to beat the NCGA 15 1/2 to 12 1/2. Scott Anderson went 3-0 for the NCGA, teaming
