The year was 2006 and the venue for the United States Golf Teachers Cup was Boulder Creek Golf Club in Boulder City, Nevada, site of this year’s United States and World Golf Teachers Cups. After battling to a 36-hole draw with each golfer shooting a 3-under 141, Australia’s James Douris and Trinidad & Tobago’s Christopher Richards engaged in a two-hole playoff that decided nothing. Moving on to sudden death, Douris’ approach shot on the par-4 third playoff hole found the desert over the green. Faced with needing a difficult up-and-down from 90 feet away to keep the playoff going, Douris chipped the ball from the desert scrub into the slope, ran it up to five feet, and drained the putt to stay alive. He then parred the fourth playoff hole to capture the championship. That same year, Jill Finlan Scally won her second Ladies division championship, while Jerry Moore took home the Senior title. The late Joe Bernat won the Super Senior championship. Information and registration to this year’s Cups can be found at www.WorldGolfTeachersCup.com.
