A battle between the United States and the rest of the world took place last weekend just outside New York City. The battle lasted four long days taking place at Liberty National Country Club in Jersey City. The battle was the President’s Cup, a tournament between the top twelve players in the United States verse the top twelve internationals. The setting was perfect for an American victory with a view of the New York City skyline, the Hudson Bay, and the Statue of Liberty. The crowds were huge and there was plenty of red, white, and blue outfitted on nearly everyone. The event was attended by tens of thousands of people including Presidents Bill Clinton, George Bush, & Barack Obama. The event gave off an atmosphere similar to the Fourth of July but everyone was also cheering on the internationals. The course itself was fantastic. Perfectly mowed tee boxes, lush rolling fairways, perfectly manicured greens, and complete attention to detail made Liberty National the perfect host club. When asked if he was enjoying the afternoon attendee Owen Fahs said, “I’m having a great time but I wish I was playing this place right now or sometime soon.” That could be slightly difficult as Liberty National is one of the most exclusive clubs in the United States with an initiation fee of over $250,000 dollars. In impressive style the United States beat out the international to capture the President’s Cup. President Trump made an appearance at the award’s ceremony in Presidential style. Marine One was seen flying into Liberty National Park earlier in the afternoon. It was interesting to see the huge amount of secret service in the crowd all day long. The President’s Cup was a great win for American golf and also a great gathering of people from dozens of different countries to enjoy some golf on a perfect Sunday afternoon.
