Birch Ridge grabs 5-1 lead in Walker Cup
The Walker Cup trophy could soon be on the move.
Birch Ridge ended Day 1 of the seventh-annual tournament with a 5-1 lead on its home course Thursday over defending champion Kenai Golf Course, using four close victories in match play to gain all the momentum going into today's action.
Kenai took the crown last year on its home course, but it will take a comeback effort to keep the trophy from moving across town.
