Marquette Club Golf Takes First NCCGA North Regional

The NCCGA North Region kicked off its fall session in Grafton, WI at Fire Ridge Golf Club this weekend. The weather was great for the teams, which is a rare occurrence in the North.

The tournament concluded in close fashion Sunday as Marquette Club Golf took Tournament 1 and their first NCCGA regional by just a single stroke holding off University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (A). Marquette was led by Patrick Lynch (+5) and James Christian (+6) as the team took away the North Region from the dominant University of Wisconsin-Madison who has an astounding 4 consecutive Nationals appearances under their belt.

Individual Medalist Tom Boockmeier 72-72 (E) weekend said “the greens were tough, and you could see that in the first day of scoring.” Tom managed to help his team to a 4th place finish behind Madison. The teams have a tough Lake Arrowhead course for tournament 2 to look forward to.

The young Wisconsin-Madison club golf team is eager to fill the shoes of those before them, and UW-Milwaukee is looking for revenge on Marquette after the close finish of tournament one.

The North region is far from decided as multiple teamshave their eye on the #TrailToTPC. The region completes their second tournament this weekend.
