This week (Oct. 27-29), the 2nd Women’s PGA Cup — the premier international competition for women PGA Club Professionals — is being contested at Twin Warriors Golf Club in Santa Ana Pueblo, New Mexico.
There are representatives from six PGA Associations that will be part of the field: Australia, Canada, Great Britain & Ireland, South Africa, Sweden and the United States.
The U.S. team won the inaugural Women’s PGA Cup by four shots in October 2019 at Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa in Austin, Texas.
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.
PGA of America President Jim Richerson will captain the U.S. Team. Richerson, a PGA Member, is General Manager of The Riviera Country Club & The Riviera Tennis Club in Pacific Palisades, California. Elected President at the 104th PGA Annual Meeting in 2020, he is the first Wisconsin PGA Member to hold a National Office.
Just two weeks ago, the 2022 Senior PGA Professional Championship was contested at Twin Warriors, and next April, the 2022 PGA Professional Championship pays another visit to New Mexico.
Derek Gutierrez, the General Manager & Director of Golf for SAGC Inc. and the District 12 PGA Board Member for the PGA of America, is the host PGA Professional.
