And, the new Egan Cup Champ is the First Two Time Champ in the history of the Egan Cup. It all happened at the Nottawasaga Resort on July 25th.
The Egan Cup has returned to Ottawa, where it belongs. It didn't happen without a fight. The First feMALE Egan Cup Champ and I were tied when the computer picked me as the new Two Time Champ. It must have recognized my almost hole-in-one on the 9th hole for a tap in birdie or it may have not counted my 10 score on the 12th hole for two balls in the creek.
Please note how shinning the Egan Cup is and how I am wearing gloves. Also my SAP hat signed by Ernie Els, compliments of Egan Cup Champ Doug and his company. The tee shirt was supplied by 2014 Champ Annette as she and Doug gave a superb presentation and demonstration of how to win the Egan Cup via the Callaway Scoring System.
The Ottawa McGuire's also took home most of the hardward with Sean winning the longest drive and Sybil winning the longest drive for women. She out drove her daughter-in-law and then right after Alli complained of a bad back and couldn't give it a full swing. You can tell the talent at the Egan Cup when Sybil wins the longest drive.
The oldest male golfer won the closest to the pin and Champ Annette won closest to the pin for the women.
On Saturday afternoon the future Egan Cup Champs played the nine hole course. It is usually a Father and Son outing but Grandpa George was out bright and early with his three grandsons Liam, Adam and Daniel. Later that morning Sean and Ty took on Mike and Tim for a great round of golf for Ty.
It was another great Egan Cup Weekend. Mike's gang from BC were all there for the Friday and Saturday but had to leave early Sunday morning to get back to BC. Scott was the same as he had to fly back across the world to his new job. They were all there for the story telling on the deck on Saturday night arranged by the eldest McGuire, whose age will remain ageless.
The Egan Putt was arranged after the golf for the younger golfers who didn't play in the Egan Cup. They were lead off by Sam with an amazing putt but then got distracted and started to put all the flags back in the holes where they belonged. The winner was Megan with an amazing putt to take home the Egan Putt trophy. She made an amazing speech to thank her Grandfather who taught her how to putt. That surprised me as I played with him all day and his best putt was when he used his putter to get out from behind a tree.
Here is the gang that attended this year. Clip on the image to make it larger so you can see the Two Time Egan Cup Champ.
But the show was upstaged by Sam when Annette asked him to put on the white gloves and bring it up to the front of the room.
Pat's Gang were all missing as they were celebrating the two 70 year olds in PEI and NB. We also missed David's gang this year as we had to change the weekend. Hope to see everyone next year.
It was a great weekend weather wise and no one got run over by a golf cart or break their hip so the whole weekend was a success.
You have all seen Andrea's great photos of the weekend but here is the link for viewing them in years to come.
Until next year.
Double Egan Cup Champ.
