Though the Mackenzie Tour put together a valiant charge, winning five of the first seven singles matches of the day, it wasn’t enough to overcome a daunting 8.5-1.5 deficit, with Latinoamérica prevailing by a 13-7 final score over the three-day match play competition between the two Tours.

Leandro Morelli and Augusto NúñezWith a flurry of closing birdies and a late day charge, PGA TOUR Latinoamérica built a commanding lead on day one at the inaugural Aruba Cup, taking a 4.5 to 0.5 advantage over the Mackenzie Tour – PGA TOUR Canada at Tierra del Sol Resort and Club.

After splitting a point in the first match, where Corey Conners chipped in on the 18th hole to earn a half point with Austin Connelly against Nate Lashley and Seth Fair, it was all Latinoamérica to the finish, with all four of the closing matches going their way to finish the Thursday fourball session.

“It was a tough day for our guys, but you’ve got to give the guys from PGA TOUR Latinoamérica a lot of credit,” said Mackenzie Tour captain Stephen Ames. “They holed a lot of putts and chipped in a few times as well. A few of our guys are upset with how they played, but tomorrow’s another day and I’m sure they’ll be motivated to get back out there.”

Mackenzie Hughes(Gord Montgomery/iG) — Like Joe Cocker, the rocker from the 1960s and ‘70s, Canada’s Mackenzie Hughes got by with a little help from his friends ... in two different ways.

Hughes, who won for the first time on the PGA TOUR at the RSM Classic used the longtime hit sitcom series, Friends, to relax after his rounds during the event which he led, or was tie for the lead for each of the five days, including the extra day playoff. And, he also got some help from unnamed “friends,” those being guys who decided against playing in a Tour event earlier this summer that set the Dundas, ON., native on his winning path.
