Golf has given Piercen Hunt so much since the former Hartland Arrowhead golfer moved to Wisconsin less than five years ago.

As Hunt gets ready to leave for the University of Illinois this fall to begin his college golf career, the two-time WIAA Division 1 state champion continues to give back to the game, as well.
Hunt will play host to the second annual Wisconsin Cup Matches on July 3 and 4 at Whistling Straits in Haven. In conjunction with the AJGA's Leadership Links program, the two-day event will pit two teams of 12 playing a Ryder Cup-like format at the site of the 143rd Ryder Cup with golfers raising money for the MACC Fund, the Wisconsin PGA Junior Foundation and the AJGA Aces program, which provides financial assistance for travel and entry fees to golfers who otherwise could not afford it.
Hunt will captain Team Illinois and Kenosha's Cameron Huss, a University of Wisconsin recruit, will captain Team Wisconsin. Teams will play a four-ball format on July 3 at the Straits Course and singles matches on July 4 on the Irish Course.
"It's just a great chance to enjoy some golf and enjoy being with friends," Hunt said. "It'll be nice to have a little bit looser of a competition. The play doesn't mean as much; it's really about the fundraising and then they can enjoy the Fourth of July."
