Ssu-Chia Cheng claimed the 2022 Potawatomi Cup title after her top finishes at the Island Resort Championship and Four Winds Invitational. She defeated Xiaowen Yin by 7.5 points to take home the $8,000 bonus and trophy.
“I’m very happy to get it,” said Cheng. “I didn’t expect it at all, but you always say yes to extra money. It definitely gives me some pretty good confidence for the rest of this season, especially after this week.”
The Potawatomi Cup is a point-based ranking, with points being earned at the three Potawatomi nations’ casino events – the Island Resort Championship, FireKeepers Casino Hotel Championship and Four Winds Invitational. A total of $30,000 was awarded as unofficial prize money this season.
“I appreciate their support for the players,” said Cheng. “To do extra bonuses and support for the players is really good, and we appreciate that.”
