Meadow Lakes wins Prineville Cup again

Victory is the sixth straight over Prineville Golf Club


For the sixth-consecutive year, golfers from Meadow Lakes Golf Club have defeated a team from Prineville Golf Club to win the Prineville Cup.

“I?guess you could say that we just kind of jumped out on them early and that made it where it was pretty lopsided in the final score,” said Meadow Lakes Head Professional Zach Lampert, who competed in the event.

Players from Meadow Lakes jumped out to a 14-1 lead after the morning 18-hole two-man scramble, which was held at Meadow Lakes. Although the afternoon 18-hole best ball match, which was held at Prineville Golf Club, was closer, the damage had already been done, as Meadow Lakes pulled out a 23.5-6.5 victory. The margin of victory was especially surprising since Meadow Lakes had taken a narrow one-point win in 2012.

“Our guys played really good,” Lampert said. “We got out to a really big lead after the morning session. It was a bigger lead after one round than I’ve ever seen, so that made it tough on them. They didn’t really have a chance to capitalize on their home field advantage in the afternoon.”

Lampert and partner Jim Montgomery won both their morning and afternoon matches 3-0. Dustin Conklin and Jeff Brown swept their morning match 3-0 as did Jeff Storm and Jake Shinkle. Jeff and Dwain Storm swept their afternoon match for Meadow Lakes as well.

Lampert added that he believed that part of the reason that Meadow Lakes won the event so easily was the Professional Cup, an event held at Meadow Lakes the day before.

“I don’t think there is any doubt that it helped us,” Lampert said. “We got to play 27-holes on Saturday to get warmed up for Sunday.”
