The International Team

The Provo Golf Ryder Cup, sponsored by Turks & Caicos Sotheby’s International Realty, witnessed another International Team victory by the large margin of 22.5 to 13.5. Team International retained control of the coveted cup during the two-day event which saw 48 golfers compete in the member favorite match play format. The conclusive win extended the International Team’s dominance to 19 to 8 over the impressive 27-year history as they now have a three-year win streak. Captain Graham Malyan and his Assistant Christina Pretorius led the Internationals who found themselves ahead 7.5 to 4.5 after the Saturday best ball format. The North American Captains, Rick Sanmiya and Josh Germain, were confident of a Sunday comeback however the International Team had different ideas winning Sunday’s singles matches handily (15 to 9) resulting in the nine-point victory.

The Provo Ryder Cup enjoyed wonderful golf course conditions, while the captains did a terrific job creating a competitive but fun atmosphere.

Each year the Provo Ryder Cup is eagerly anticipated, and the event kicked off with a lively Wednesday pairings party where the Captains set the stage for all 36 matches. Captain Pretorius helped Captain Malyan in a combined effort while Captain Sanmiya and recently crowned Club Champion Josh Germain matched strategy with the International team. Although a true team event it should be noted that the following twelve players captured a perfect 2 points by winning both their matches; Mary Eddy, Carol Brown, Brooke Rivers, Jim Gefucia, Ted Bayley, Grant Noble, Gregg Rivers, Gervin Simmons, Craig James, Martin Dawtry, Roberto Stipa, and Jo Pretorius.

Provo Golf Club, the Team Captain’s, and players would like to thank headline sponsor Joe Zahm of Turks & Caicos Sotheby’s International Realty for making the weekend a huge success. Sotheby’s has been intricately involved for the last seven years. Team North America will need to regroup as the International Team seems “INVINCIBLE” clearly ruling the Turks & Caicos golf scene! Perhaps Joe’s son Dylan Zahm will be ready to play for the North American team next year now that he has taken up this great game.

19th Annual Jadot Cup

19th Annual Jadot Cup Raises $16,000 For Turks & Caicos Aids Awareness Foundation (TCAAF)

On Sunday, June 2nd, ironically nineteen teams took part in the TCAAF’s 19th Annual Jadot Cup as this year it enjoyed another rowdy crowd creating fun for all in attendance many of whom stayed late into the evening at Fairways Bar & Grill in an effort to change their scores while discussing golf swing theory. Eventually clear-headedness won out as Jadot Cup Chairman and TCAAF Director Terry Drummey announced that “The 19th Annual Jadot Cup was a great tournament resulting in a “funtastic” event which featured an amazing Friday dinner at OPUS Restaurant. We would like to thank everyone for their continued support!” Congratulations to the winning team members; Tony Garland, Mike Flynn, Gervin Simons, and Tom Adams. Terry then added, “An additional special thank you to all the companies that donated and to The Wine Cellar, Opus, Provo Golf Club with all their staff members who again made the weekend a huge success.”

Each year the Jadot weekend helps to raise awareness of the TCAAF and assists with funds towards its flagship project – the Edward Gartland Youth Centre in downtown, Providenciales. The Centre is open to young people age 10-18 and has registered an impressive 2000 plus youth. Funds raised by TCAAF assists the Youth Centre with their various extracurricular programs for the many who frequent the centre. Making a difference in the lives of the youth in the Turks & Caicos Islands through the various programs, including volleyball, basketball, tennis, arts & crafts, computers, and dance to name a few, is very rewarding. We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to our silent auction and hole sponsors at the 2019 Jadot Cup. This combined effort made it a huge success.

2016 Provo Ryder Cup

Turks & Caicos Sotheby’s International Realty Provo Ryder Cup, “North America Triumphs”

The Provo Golf Ryder Cup, sponsored by Turks & Caicos Sotheby’s International Realty, witnessed some quality match play golf on route to an impressive North American victory over The International Team by a large 7 point result (24.5 to 17.5). Team North America now controls the coveted cup after the two day event which had 48 golfers compete head to head in the popular match play format. The win narrowed the International Team’s impressive historic lead to 16 vs. 8 as it ended the multiple year jinx that North America seemed burdened by; in fact it was only the 2nd North American win over the last 11 years.

Fraser Dods and Todd Foss captained North America who started with a solid 7 to 5 first day lead in the Saturday best ball format. International Captains Grant Noble and Dale Hodgkins rallied their team for Sunday’s singles play as their side came out early with excellent results in the first 6 ladies matches before ultimately falling to the North American men by 12.5 to 5.5 in the last 18 matches of the Cup.

This year the Provo Ryder Cup enjoyed some of the best golf witnessed in the 24 year history of the matches. The weather finally co-operated after heavy rain earlier in the week and the course rebounded under the guidance of Superintendent Tim Mack to provide the players with great conditions for the weekend challenge. All four captains did a tremendous job creating a competitive but fun tournament atmosphere making “the spirit of the game” top priority. The Provo Ryder Cup is eagerly anticipated each year and again kicked off with a lively Wednesday pairings party where the Captains arranged the stage for all 36 matches. Other highlights included the fact that there were five first time Ryder Cup golfers two of which (Mike Kenney and Josh Germain) that dominated their opponents. Also notable was 13 year old Augustina Rebolledo and 11 year old Brooke Rivers who both won their singles match on Sunday.

Although a true team event it should be noted that the following 9 players captured a perfect 2 points by winning both their matches; Christine Dickenson, Tammy Glugosh, Carol Brown, Ty Nagthall, Josh Germain, Mike Kenney, Jim Gefucia, Terry Erskine, and Gregg Rivers. Terry Erskine in fact has won all four of his matches over the last two years!

Both 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 continued sponsorship. North America has finally recaptured the cup after the amazing International control which lasted 4 straight years. The jinx is broken!
