Bulldog Alum Leads U.S. to PGA Cup Victory
In Luss, Scotland, 1992 Professional Golf Management grad Scott Hebert won all five of his matches, and the U.S. club pros dominated Great Britain and Ireland in singles for a 17 1/2-8 1/2 victory in the PGA Cup on Sunday (Sept. 20).
The Americans posted their largest margin of victory on foreign soil since setting the bar in 1983 at Muirfield.
Hebert, a former club pro champion from Traverse City, Mich., had a 2-up victory over Jon Bevan to become the only player on The Carrick course at Loch Lomond to win all five of his matches.
The PGA Cup, which dates to 1973 and is patterned after the Ryder Cup, features club professionals. The Americans have a 16-5-3 lead in the series and have captured the cup 11 of the last 12 times.
