Just as in any other tournament, the UP Golf’s Maroon Cup commenced as scheduled on Monday, April 16, despite undergoing a seemingly uphill battle and being surrounded by external factors. How many would be actually playing? What was the weather going to be? Could there be a shortage of supplies? In that sense, a tournament and its turnabouts mirror a common quality with the game of golf – unpredictability.
Nevertheless, unpredictability is a tool that can measure one’s capacity to adapt, maneuver, and rise to the challenge. Therefore, we, the UP Golf Team, can proudly say two things: that the tournament did not give in to any of these factors, and that we have successfully completed another chapter in our book of tradition.
Once more, we would like to congratulate the winners and record-holders of the tournament in the various categories:
