ALPHARETTA, Georgia (April 1, 2013) -- The 16th annual Georgia Cup, arguably the season’s most unique event, tees off Thursday at the Lakeside Course at the Golf Club of Georgia.
U.S. Amateur Champion Steven Fox and Alan Dunbar, the 2012 British Amateur Champion will battle it out in an 18-hole charity match that has become one of the world’s most prized amateur events each spring. Sharing the stage with the two golfers will be Hall of Famer Billy Casper, serving as the honorary captain.
The two players are tied for 13th in the Golfweek/amateurgolf.com World Rankings.
Dunbar will be attempting to tie the all-time series record. Last year, 2011 British Amateur champion Bryden Macpherson knocked off U.S. Amateur winner Kelly Kraft to break a streak of victories for the U.S. Amateur winners.
Many big names have participated in The Georgia Cup, including Sergio Garcia, Ryan Moore, Ricky Barnes, Edoardo Mollinari, Matteo Manassero, Peter Uihlein and Matt Kuchar, the inaugural winner of the event.
Tickets to the event can be reserved by contacting The Golf Club of Georgia and proceeds from the event will benefit the Folds of Honor Foundation.
