Golf is a great game, and it’s even better when there’s a friendly team competition involved. One of the annual traditions at St. Marys Golf & Country Club is the President’s Cup, where members line up on different sides for a couple days of matches.
This year’s golf challenge was held on September 17-18, with “Team World” captained by Mike Wraith while “Team Canada” was led by Tom Jenkins. Jenkins hoped to make it victories for Team Canada in consecutive years, but Team World came out strong on Day One and took a 11-5 lead.
Though Team Canada rebounded during the Day Two matches, it wasn’t enough and Team World held on for a 21.5 to 18.5 victory.
The Earl Staffen Memorial Trophy was presented by Earl’s grandson Matt to Captain Wraith and his victorious squad.
Representing 2018 President’s Cup champions in St. Marys were Al Edwards, Tom Dill, Roland Tourigny, Paul Fitzgeorge, Tom Warren, Rod Betteridge, Jan Jenkins, Linda Cooke, Jim Blake, Jim Robson, Mike Wraith, Barry Albers, Ken Telfer, Doug Landreth, Marie Stevens, Patty Taylor and Pierre Chateauvert.
