Defense Logistics Agency is poised to clinch the FY19 Commander’s Cup after its athletes dominated the fairways and greens of the Golf Club’s Gunston Course, Aug. 15 to win the intramural golf championship title.

The unit wrapped up competition with a combined total of 202 strokes—20 better than runner-up, Office of the Chief Army Reserve (222 strokes). Defense Threat Reduction Agency finished the tourney in third place, shooting 223 on the day, and U.S. Army Legal Services Agency claimed the fourth-place slot with 224. 

DLA golfers also claimed both the champion and runner-up trophies in the best-round category. Jerry Arnold and Ellis Anderson took first place with 63 strokes, and Dave Dustin and Jesse Hall came in second with 66.

The sweeping victory, which comes right on the heels of the unit’s triumph in the bowling championship a week before, cements DLA at the top of the overall Cup standings, with two major events remaining in the season.

More than 40 athletes competed in the tournament on ideal course conditions.
