Six teams set for second Women's PGA Cup at Twin Warriors Golf Club


The Women’s PGA Cup, the premier international competition among women PGA Professionals, gets underway this week at Twin Warriors Golf Club, New Mexico.

The event takes place from 27-29th October and will involve women PGA Professionals from six PGA associations - Australia, Canada, Great Britain & Ireland, South Africa, Sweden and the United States.

The Women’s PGA Cup is conducted as a 54-hole, stroke-play event, with each team’s lowest three scores counted after each round. The winning country will be the team with the lowest 54-hole aggregate total.

Similar to the PGA Cup among men’s professionals, the Women’s PGA Cup is not played for a purse. Rather, each team vies for the honour of winning the trophy and basking in the pride that comes with representing one’s country in a distinct and unique international competition.

Speaking about the event, PGA President and United States Team Captain, Jim Richerson, said: "This week is an incredible opportunity for women PGA Professionals to represent their country in a unique global competition.

"We’re thrilled to see this competition expand to six teams this year and look forward to an exciting week of golf in Santa Ana Pueblo."

Richerson will lead a United States team looking to defend the Cup. The hosts won the inaugural Women’s PGA Cup, captained by Suzy Whaley, by four shots in October 2019, at the Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa/Foothills Course in Austin, Texas.

GB&I finished third in 2019 with a score of +50. Captain Tracey Lovey's team consisted of Scotland's Heather MacRae, Hazel Kavanagh of Ireland, and three from England – Suzanne Dickens, Ali Gray and Maria Tulley.

MacRae, Dickens and Gray are representing GB&I again this year, alongside Jessica Smart and Alison Nicholas. The team is Captained by Sarah Bennett.
