14 Teams To Play Golf World Cup Qualifier

September 17, 2011

Daniel-Augustus-Nick-Jones-BPGA-GolfThe Bermuda team of Nick Jones and Daniel Augustus depart on Monday September 19th to join a strong field of 13 other nations coming from every corner of the Americas.

The 72-hole event, which awards three berths into the $7.5 million Omega Mission Hills World Cup, is scheduled to start on Thursday at the Caracas Country Club in the Capital City of Venezuela.

The South American Qualifier is the only qualifying tournament yet to be played. The top three teams in Caracas will join a star studded field set to gather at the Mission Hills Resort, Hainan Island, China, from November 24-27.

Argentina, Bermuda, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico, Uruguay and Venezuela are the nations that confirmed their two-man teams looking to make it to the Mission Hills Resort at Hainan Island, China.

Accompanying the team will be BPGA Vice President, Alex Madeiros. “My first priority is the safety of the players and to ensure that they have what they need to make it into the top three. There is no doubt in my mind that these two young talented players will make the best of this opportunity, they have very similar games and hit the ball a very long way. I would not be surprised if they qualify, I know that they can do it.”

  2. Bev says:

    go guys, we will be praying an rooting 4 u. How is Bermuda Government supporting these young men in their efforts? I know they have been sponsored by private companies. Heads n Hats off to Keen & Red Laser Bermuda.

  3. Support Golf says:

    I am sure the government is supporting, they would of made a stink by now if they did not have support. Minister Minors, if you have not supported this is the time because Golf is good for tourism and these 2 young men are representing on of the most influential sports worldwide as far as networking goes. Please say you are supporting them

  4. your joking says:

    I am 99% sure that a hand shake is all they got from government……golf (BGA)recieved nothing in the budget which mean nor did junior golf..ps….I bet if they qualify some sports minister will be the first at the airport for pictures though…..this is funded by the sponsors and Bermuda Professional Golf Association.
