We had an exciting two days at the inaugural East Lake Cup. This match-play event featured some of the top men’s and women’s collegiate golf teams in the country and aired live on the Golf Channel.
On Monday, November 2, the first day of match play kicked off with Georgia vs LSU and Illinois vs USC on the men’s side and Duke vs Stanford and Baylor vs USC on the women’s side. After four hours of rain delays, the tournament kicked off with most of the pairings not being able to finish until the following morning.
In the final round, UGA and Illinois veted for the first East Lake Cup men’s title while Duke and USC went head to head for the women’s title on another rainy day at East Lake. The remaining schools participated in a consolation round. In the end, Illinois and USC came out victorious.
Congratulations to our winners, the University of Illinois on the men’s side and the University of Southern California on the women’s side, for declaring victory at this year’s competition.
