LEWISTON, NY- The 60th annual Porter Cup golf tournament tees off at the Niagara Falls Country Club on Wednesday July 18.

Once again its a star studded field. It includes defending champion Brandon Wu who is trying to become the first back to back winner since Bob Smith won in 1966 and 67. That's the only time in the history of the tournament that's happened.

The winner of the 2018 Porter Cup will receive an exemption into the 2019 LECOM Health Challenge, a Web.com Tour event held at Peek’n Peak Resort in Clymer, New York. Wu played in the LECOM Health Challenge last weekend.

Some other players to watch include Scott Harvey, a ten time Porter Cup participant, Shae Woods-Cobb, Tianlang Guan, and Will Thompson. The 17 year old Thompson will be playing in his fifth Porter Cup.
