Rebecca Samuelsson, a Swedish international currently residing in Kissimmee, Florida, became the first woman to capture the individual title at the 12th biennial World Golf Teachers Cup, played October 15-16, at the Walt Disney World courses in Orlando, Florida. After firing a first-round 70 to trail leader Bill Hardwick by three, Samuelsson put on a clinic the second day, shooting a 67 to run away with the title by five shots. In the team portion of the tournament, Brazil won its first title after runner-up finishes in 2003 and 2005. Trailing leader Team USA by 10 shots entering the final round, Brazil made up lost ground in a hurry and finished nine strokes clear of the field. In the 20th annual United States Golf Teachers Cup, the 74-year-old Canadian Hardwick broke his own record as the oldest champion. A pedestrian (by his standards) 76 in the first round left him five shots back of leader Bob Richardson, also a fellow Canadian senior, but Hardwick shot a then-record 18-hole score of 66 to win by two shots over runners-up Samuelsson, Michael Wolf, and J.T. Smart. Trinidad & Tobago’s Ricky Campbell came in with a 65 after an opening-round 88 to set records for both the lowest 18-hole score in U.S. Cup history and also the biggest turnaround from the first-day score.
