San Antonio won the 2015 Rudy’s I-35 Cup by three points over two days of play at Fair Oaks Ranch and Golf Club in Boerne, Texas.  Although the foursomes and singles matches resulted in equal points for both teams, San Antonio prevailed 5-2 in the four ball matches on Saturday afternoon and that proved to be the winning margin.

Saturday’s play was plagued by wind, rain and temperatures in the 50’s.  Sunday morning was cool and windy but the weather improved to ideal playing conditions about half way through the Sunday matches.

As usual, the matches were expertly conducted by the hosting team.  Golf San Antonio, the organization that conducts amateur golf in San Antonio as well as the Texas Open and the First Tee of San Antonio, provided rules officials and coordinated with Austin Amateur Golf to run the event.  Randy Reynolds and Austin Amateur Golf were the organization representing Austin.  Both groups provided excellent support and organization through some difficult conditions.

The staff at Fair Oaks Ranch and Golf Club were excellent hosts and the course was in good condition given all the rain that had fallen before and during the matches.  All the players and captains are very appreciative of the efforts made by those folks.

The sponsors of the event are to be congratulated for all their generous contributions that make this event possible.  Rudy’s Country Store and Bar-B-Q is the title sponsor.  Ameritas and Group 42 are presenting sponsors.  The support of these groups, along with all the players that participated in the “Rivalary Before The Matches” are responsible for the significant contributions to charity beneficiaries of the First Tee of San Antonio, The Capital Area Food Bank and African Life.  Over the seven years of the Rudy’s Cup Event, charitable contributions are approaching $300,000.  For a full view of participating sponsors and benefiting charities, click here.
