Golden Isles Great Golf Moments

The UBS Warburg Cup matches between a United States team and an International team were inaugurated in 2001 at Kiawah Island, S.C. In 2003, the matches were moved to Sea Island, Georgia. Arnold Palmer was the captain of the team that included Hal Sutton, Tom Watson and other top Tour players. The international team was lead by 1969 US Open Champion Tony Jacklin.

The matches took place in October that year on the Seaside Course at the Sea Island Golf Club. The competition was especially appropriate because Tom Fazio had recently completed a renovation of the course that combined two old nine hole courses into one grand seaside layout that ran along scenic marshes and tidal flats and the Frederica River, which separates St. Simons Island from the mainland.

The teams competed in match play format and the United States team was in danger of losing until Scott Hoch won the 18th hole with a birdie which resulted in a tie and allowed the U.S. team to retain possession of the UBS Cup for another year.

The competition at Sea Island further established the success of the Warburg Cup matches which were moved to Kiawah Island in 2005. *
