Your Day with the (Newport) Cup! (2017 Edition)

Its been a long time since I got the cup, and even longer since I got to play golf in Virginia.  @jsgolfer met Mary Anne and I for lunch, to pass along the trophy, back just after Thanksgiving.

It was like Christmas had come early:

Since then, the Cup has been staying nice and dry, in spite of the rather liquid winter we've been having:

The Cup even got to spend a little time with the other trophies in the house, some of mine, most belonging to Mary Anne;

But now its time for the Newport Cup to move along to the next member of the East Team. @coachjimsc, @cipher, @NCGolfer, @bkuehn1952, I'll happily box it up and send it along.  I'd suggest that maybe Dave or Jim would be the best direction, at least they have a good chance to get outside soon.  Just send me your mailing address, and I'll get it on the road!  Thanks again to everyone, the captains, my teammates, our worthy opponents, and everyone on TST who made this such a great time.

The NewportCup has arrived in South Carolina!

Thank you @DaveP043 for shipping it so quickly.

Looking forward to spending time with it.

Nice!  I'm sure we @coachjimsc and I can meet up somewhere in the spring for a round of golf and a hand-off of the trophy.

Sounds like an excellent plan Dave.

It's not too often a Newport Cup team member let alone an East (Blue hair) teammate comes within an hour of where I live to play golf. So of course I have to make an effort to play with him.

And that’s exactly what @jsgolfer and I did at The Patriot Golf Club at Grand Harbor in Ninety Six, SC.

 I also brought the Newport Cup with me to take a few photo ops.

My tee shot on the par 3 hole #4. 5 iron from 180 yds and missed the putt.

18th hole par 5. Our birdie putts. Jerry is closer.

A great time and great company. Looking forward to seeing Jerry again soon.

The next trip will be to meet up with @NCGolfer in the Charlotte area to play a round and pass on the Cup.

@coachjimsc and the Cup at the Master’s!

Thanks for posting that for me @jsgolfer. We were in a hurry to get back in there. We were very lucky to be parked about 60 yards from where that picture was taken.

So I was curious @iacas, has the NC ever been to the front gate of a major before? :-)

It's been to the site of a major, but not during the major. You can claim "firsts" for that one! :-D

Where is the Cup now and who gets it next @coachjimsc?

I have it. @NCGolfer and I are in the process of setting up a transfer at a TBD course in Charlotte very soon.

@jsgolfer, I am in possession of the Newport Cup.  It came to me while I was out at Pebble last weekend.  Will post some pics soon.  I have some ideas but it might be a little bit before I can get them.

@coachjimsc must've been hoarding it.  LOL
