CDGA AMATEURS SEARCH FOR THIRD-STRAIGHT RADIX CUP TRIUMPH AGAINST EXPERIENCED IPGA PROFESSIONALS

LEMONT/GLENVIEW, Ill. - The year 1962 was one of firsts on all levels of the golf landscape.

Internationally, Jack Nicklaus claimed the first of his 73 PGA Tour victories and 18 major championship triumphs in the U.S. Open, while Gary Player earned his first PGA Championship title. On a local scale, 1962 marked the inaugural time a team of amateur golfers representing the Chicago District Golf Association (CDGA) squared off with a squad of Illinois PGA (IPGA) professionals in the Radix Cup Matches.

The venerable event returns for its 58th iteration on Wednesday, June 12 at Oak Park Country Club, which has served as the host site for all but three versions, and every one since 1972.

Each team will feature 12 individuals who earned their spots based on achievements during the previous year's golf season. The afternoon will feature six better ball matches utilizing Nassau scoring, with the team accumulating the most points hoisting the Radix Cup. As the 2018 winner, the CDGA Amateurs hold the tie breaker coming in to 2019.
