The Director’s Cup Matches are a team match play competition between the top amateur golfers from Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska. The team match play sessions on day one consist of Four-Ball and Foursomes. Singles conclude the event on the final day. Each match uses Nassau scoring with one point awarded for each the front nine, back nine and 18-hole match. If a match is tied each team receives a 1/2 point. The team that wins the most points wins the trophy.
Iowa’s Trent Lindenman and Nate McCoy both contributed to 5.5 points of the team’s total for the event. Connie Peck (pictured above) chipped in with 4 points, including all three points in his Singles match.
