Throughout the spring and summer, players age 55 and older with a handicap of 36.4 or less compete in one-day team events using the better ball of partners. Individuals accumulate points from playing and those with the most points are invited to play in the series ending championship. Though the Senior Cup Series originally began in the Phoenix area, it has since expanded to both northern and southern Arizona. Trapnell, Nix and Nielsen will be honored in the Spring at the AGA’s annual awards banquet.
