Friday, July 25, 2014
Year after year, the Porter Cup and its 13-year tournament director Steve Denn recruit some of the best players from around the world to play in Lewiston, N.Y., a town of approximately 2,700 people.
The 2007 Porter Cup field could arguably have been one of the best in recent memory, featuring players that have gone on to be some of golf's top pros.
In ’07, it was former Georgia Bulldog Brian Harman who ran away with the title blistering the 2003 scoring mark set by Casey Wittenberg with a 22-under 258 total for 72 holes.
