HADDONFIELD, N.J. - The New Jersey State Golf Association fell to the Golf Association of Philadelphia in the 60th edition of the Compher Cup, 10.5-7.5 at Tavistock Country Club on Wednesday, April 27.
The Compher Cup was held for the first time in 1962 and is named for former NJSGA president, Frederic Compher, who donated the championship cup and conceived the idea of an interdistrict match with GAP to foster camaraderie and friendly competition between the associations. It has been held every year since, except for 2020 due to the pandemic (COVID-19).
Reigning New Jersey Mid-Amateur Champion Eric LeFante of Somerset Hills Country Club, Anthony Campanile of Deal Golf & Country Club, Max O'Hagan and Jason Bataille of Raritan Valley Country Club went undefeated in the afternoon, picking up victories in both of their individual and Four-Ball matches.
In the singles matches, GAP won seven of the 12 matches. For the Four-Ball matches, the NJSGA and GAP both secured three points.
