Black team struggles in finals of Maxwell Cup

DUNCAN — While it might not have been the United States vs. Europe, the Maxwell Cup certainly provided plenty of entertainment.

In it’s first year of existence, the inaugural team competition wrapped up on Sunday, with the White team defeating the Black team by a score of 12-4.

Instead of bottles of champagne being corked open after the announcement of the winning team, there were instead high fives and laughs all around.

“It couldn’t have been any better,” Golf pro Mike Hansen said. “The idea behind this was to reward our players for being members and participating in all the tournaments. It’s a little different then what they have seen, but everyone was having a great time and things just went about as good as we could have hoped for.”

However, coming into Sunday’s final round, the black team was well within striking distance, down just 5-3 after salvaging a 2-2 split during the foursomes competition.

But, the White team was simply dominant, losing just one singles match on Sunday, claiming an overwhelming victory with a 7-1 win on the day.

“Anytime you get a group of guys like this together, there’s always some ribbing going on,” Hansen said. “These guys are all close with one another. You don’t get too many opportunities to play a team format. It was a lot of fun listening to everyone on the course.”  

The lone victor for the black team was Ryan Hightower, who defeated Chris Dickerson 1-up.

Black team captain and golf shop pro Mike Hansen fell to defeat against Ron Herndon 4 and 3 on the day.

“There were several guys who played well,” Hansen said about his team. “But, the other team just played better than us today. There’s no one on our team who liked getting beat. But, we’re going to wake up tomorrow, put our pants on and go play again.”

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
