The Mackenzie Tour–PGA Tour Canada’s 10-man team for the inaugural Aruba Cup was announced Thursday, led by four-time 2016 winner and Player of the Year Dan McCarthy.
The team, consisting of the top 10 available players on the 2016 Mackenzie Tour Order of Merit with a minimum of five Canadians, will compete against players yet to be announced by PGA Tour Latinoamérica.
The Aruba Cup will be a Presidents Cup-style event at Tierra del Sol Resort and Golf in Aruba, Dec. 12-18. The three competition days will include four-ball, foursome and singles matches.
“We’ve got a tremendous team of guys who have proven themselves to be among the best up-and-coming players in the world, and I expect them to play some great golf in Aruba,” said team captain Stephen Ames.
“We know the team from PGA TOUR Latinoamérica will be very competitive as well and I’m looking forward to some great matches in December,” he said.
