Team Grundy takes home Paterson Cup trophy
This past weekend the Bowen Island Golf Club held the inaugural Paterson Cup matches. Much like the PGA Tour’s Ryder Cup matches, this match play event pitted two teams against each other: team Grundy vs. team Liddicoat. The teams were composed of the top 24 players from the club championship held in September. Tournament host Herb Paterson was on site from start to finish to witness and award the first Paterson Cup trophy. Herb has been an icon in the golf industry his entire life and exemplifies the true meaning of what it takes to be a professional. He was proud to announce team Grundy (Blue Shirts) as the inaugural champions and looks forward to next year’s event, in which he promises to be playing. Congratulations go to Phil Cunningham, Morgan and Richard Dawson, Ralph Keefer, Peter Moir, George Bernard, Chris Bell, Larry Oliver, Greg Cope, Harry Monahan, assistant captain Bill Keller and captain Spencer Grundy. Congratulations to team Liddicoat (Purple Shirts) for putting up a good battle and to everyone for surviving the rain. Special thanks to Frank Patt and Joy Jubenvill for the prime rib dinner at the Cup Cutter after the event. See you all next year.
