Dakota Wesleyan University’s men’s golf team trailed after 18 holes, but came back strong to win 16.5 to 11.5 in the second annuel TigBro Cup, a match play event against Hastings College Saturday at Wild Oak Golf Course in Mitchell.
The event consists of nine holes of alternate shot matches, nine holes of best ball and nine holes of head-to-head singles matches. The design was set up similar to the PGA’s Ryder Cup.
Hastings led 4-3 after the alternate shot and the two squads each earned 3.5 points in the best ball portion before the Tigers dominated the Broncos in head-to-head play, scoring 10 points compared to Hastings’ 4.
Dakota Wesleyan won the inaugural event last year and will return to Hastings, Neb., for next year’s competition.
The Tigers begin play in the NAIA Midwest Classic today for the final event of the fall. The tournament runs through Tuesday in Silvis, Ill.
