What a great weekend of golf for the 84 gentlemen that participated in the 2017 MGA Ryder Cup Tournament.  The BLUE TEAM, lead by veteran captain Mike Walton, held a 5 point lead, 23.5 to 18.5 after day 1 play of Foursomes and Four Ball matches.    With 84 points available on Day 2, the match was up for grabs. RED TEAM rookie captain Jerry Arnold knew from history anything can happen when the singles matches start on day 2 and he was confident in his team.  The morning matches on Day 2 were won handily by TEAM ARNOLD. They erased the 5 point deficit  and went into the afternoon matches with a 4 point lead over TEAM WALTON. The afternoon matches proved to be a different story. The afternoon matches were extremely close as TEAM WALTON mounted a charge and the lead seemed to change after every  match was completed.  With the teams tied at 62 points each, the tournament was decided by the final two matches on the 18th hole. TEAM ARNOLD captured the victory and won the 2017 Ryder Cup by one point, 63.5 points to 62.5 points.

Congratulations to captain Jerry Arnold and the members of the RED TEAM:

Bob Beerman, Paul Belcher, Randy Boll, Chris Buck, Mike Cavill, Doug Cole, Tod Crane, Tom Daniel, Bruce Davis, Brad Elliott, Geoff Elliott, Al Fenstemacher, Geoff Frankovich, Dean Goolsby, Deric Governale, Rick Gray, Ray Hayford, David Heusel, John Hosford, Blake Hudgins, Bill Jackson, Dave Kouchoukos, Ed linkowski, Dan Mikan, Gerry Mullins, Chase Mulvehill, Tom Newlon, Rick Rowan, Ron Salerno, Phil Scarborough, Hal Smith, John Smith, Scott Stone, CW Taylor, Lonnie Todd, Jeff Tunning, Bill Tuttle, Miguel Valdillez, Todd Vaughn, Roger Williams, Steve Wood.
