Werenski Captures Porter Cup

– Welcome Richy Werenski to the list of elite amateur golfers in the country.

The laid-back 20-year-old’s spot was reserved after 72 magnificent holes this week at the 54th Porter Cup at Niagara Falls Country Club.

Werenski slipped on the winner’s green jacket Saturday evening after finishing a final round of 2-under-par 68, giving him a winning total of 17-under 263 and a two-shot victory over Denny McCarthy. Werenski’s winning total is the second best in Porter Cup history, trailing just the record 22 under shot by current PGA Tour member Brian Harman in 2007.

Incredibly, Werenski shot just one bogey over four rounds.

“It was definitely in there,” Werenski said of the thought of not having one hole over par all week. “I wanted to go bogey free all four rounds, which would’ve been really cool. But it’s all right.”

His performance was much more than all right. No matter what facet of the game it was, Werenski had it going.
