Three teams of eight amateur golfers each will compete in the second annual Morgan Cup July 28-29, 2012 at Caledonia Golf and Fish Club and True Blue Plantation.
The team match-play tournament is scheduled to be conducted over three rounds, two on True Blue and one at Caledonia. Each round will be contested in a different format, including singles, two-man scramble and better ball of partners.
The teams were chosen through TheHackersParadise.com, an interactive exchange forum covering a wide range of golf topics. Contestants were chosen from video submissions.Three different golf equipment manufacturers are sponsoring the players: Bridgestone Golf, Callaway Golf and Cleveland/Srixon Golf. Golfers participating represent 12 states and two foreign countries: Canada and Ireland.
“The Morgan Cup is the ultimate Tour experience an amateur can have,” said Morgan Babbitt, tournament director. “Our generous equipment sponsors will supply a full 14-club deal, including personalized staff bags and apparel, so the golfers will feel like they are marquis Tour players.”
Caledonia and True Blue are two of the courses that comprise the Waccamaw Golf Trail (12 courses) in the southern part of the Grand Strand. For more information on the Waccamaw Golf Trail, visit WaccamawGolfTrail.com.
