The Turks and Caicos Ryder Cup

T & C Sotheby’s International Realty Provo Ryder Cup

“International Team Triumphs” 

The Provo Golf Ryder Cup, sponsored by Turks & Caicos Sotheby’s International Realty, witnessed an amazing International Team second day comeback for a resounding victory of 22.5 to 16.5. Team International regains control of the coveted cup after the two day event which saw 52 golfers compete in the popular match play format. The convincing win lengthened the International Team’s impressive dominance which is now 17 to 8 over the 25 year history.
Louis Dickenson with Assistant Dale Hodgkins (and help from Steve Ross and John Stevenson) captained the Internationals who found themselves well behind at 8 to 5 after the Saturday best ball format. The defending champion North American Captains, Todd Foss and Rob Ayer, were delighted with the first day results before the International team dominated Sunday’s singles matches by winning 17.5 to 8.5 for a record nine point second day margin.
This year the Provo Ryder Cup enjoyed some of the best matches seen in the 25 year history with 13 of the 26 matches lasting either 17 or 18 holes during the Sunday singles. The golf course under the leadership of Superintendent Tim Mack provided the players with great conditions for the weekend challenge while all captains did a terrific job creating both a competitive and fun atmosphere.
The Provo Ryder Cup is eagerly anticipated each year and the event kicked off with a lively Wednesday pairings party where the Captains arranged the stage for all 39 matches. Captain Foss entertained the crowd while Captain Dickenson matched wits with the defending 2016 champion North American team.
Although a true team event it should be noted that the following 10 players captured a perfect 2 points by winning both their matches; Mary Eddy, Roberto Stipa, Toby Barkworth, Josh Germain, Mervin Cox, Terry Erskine, Jo Pretorius, Mark Fulford, Graham Shaw, and Louis Dickenson. Terry Erskine in fact has won all six of his matches over the last three years establishing a new record!
The Ryder Cup players and Provo Golf Club would like to thank our sponsor Joe Zahm of Turks & Caicos Sotheby’s International Realty for making the weekend a huge success with their headline sponsorship. With the 2018 Ryder Cup scheduled for November 18th & 19th the event will be here again before we know it. North America will need to go back to the drawing board to recapture the momentum as the International Team rules again!
