2007 Golden Tee Winners


Before the tournament started the rules clearly stated that it takes 24.5 points to win the Cup, the idea of a draw being called at this great event proved unacceptable for many of the competitors. Some called it controversy, others called it chaos but reality found 32 of the world’s most serious Golden Tee competitors looking for closure.  
In the heat of the moment, tournament director Gary Colabuono decided to give the team captains an opportunity to settle the score the best way they saw fit. “The rules are clear but we want to be fair to the competition,” he said. “We gave the captains a chance to contend so that none of the competitors would feel slighted.”  
Team USA Captain, Chris Eversole, made the tough decision that Team USA would agree to stick to the rules and call it a draw. He felt that the tie alone was victory enough for how hard his team competed; he didn’t want to risk taking the Cup away from them. World Team co-captain, Enzo Polidori, had an opposing view to Eversole. Polidori wished that a clear winner was chosen. He thought that it was a shame to go so far and have it end in a draw.  
Though the contest ended in a 24-24 draw, the World Championship Cup remains on the soil of the reigning champions, Team USA, marking a fourth time for the Americans.
