Yesterday, twelve of the top players from each chapter converged at Boca Grove Golf and Tennis Club to determine the 2018 Nelson Cup Champion. Late spring thunderstorms were the theme of the day as the event was shortened to 18 holes of alternate shot competition. The Southeast Chapter retained the Nelson Cup after a late surge pushed them into a tie with the Southwest Chapter! The Southeast Chapter team was comprised of Jerry Impellittiere, PGA, Peter Oakley, PGA, Mark Mielke, PGA, Matt Newman, PGA, Alan Morin, PGA, Chris Stanko, PGA, Jimmy Buell, PGA, Chris Kaufman, PGA, Colin Amaral, PGA, Roger Kennedy, PGA, Rick Gomes, PGA, and Jeff Waber, PGA. John Nelson, PGA was on hand to present the trophy to the Southeast Chapter and represent all of the contributions that the Nelson family have made to junior golf in South Florida. Final Scores: Southeast Chapter 21 (retains cup), Southwest Chapter 21, Southern Chapter 12. A big thank you goes out to our host PGA Director of Golf, Jeremy Moe and his staff at Boca Grove for putting on a first class event. The event would not be possible without the support of Adidas who provided team uniforms and shoes!
