THE KIVA CUP EXPANDS TO 10 MAN TEAMS

Former USA Team Member Sam Thompson is rumored to be returning to Kiva Dunes.

In a shocking and surprising move, the 16th Annual Kiva Cup to be held November 1-5, 2018, will be expanded to 10 man rosters. Negotiations between Team Europe Chief Operating Officer Kevin "Hawk" Halcomb and Team USA Executive Vice- Captain Jarrod "JROD" Jackson had been ongoing for several months. An agreement was finally reached last week, much to the surprise of long time USA Captain James H. "Jim" Hartsell. "I think this is great for the future of the Cup. The move from 4 to 6 was important, as well as the historic move to 8 man teams. However, the move to 10 gives the Captains many more possibilities for the Throw Away Matches."  

Team Europe hold a 9-3-2 all time advantage over Team USA in The Kiva Cup, with the Fake Cup of 2017 going to Team Alabama.

IT'S KIVA CUP WEEK

The view from room 305 of The Kiva Village

Fort Morgan, Alabama
From Staff Reports

Many questions remain for the 15th renewal of The Kiva Cup, to be held this week at Kiva Dunes GC in scenic Fort Morgan, Alabama on November 2-4.

With his team in disarray due to car maintenance issues, who will Team Ohio Captain Mark J. Skiba put "in the box" on Thursday to face not 1, but 2, of Team Alabama Captain Jarrod "JROD" Jackson's talented and focused team?

How will Cup legend Hawk adjust to being separated from his longtime partner, Brian?

Will Meelum bring fresh Ahi tuna with him from his home in the Pacific Northwest for his traditional Thursday night turn in the kitchen?

Will Collie, absent from last years Cup due to "family related issues", return to the form that helped lead USA to one of its rare Cup triumphs?

Will the fans get to see the Chief/Brian pairing they have clamored for since 2004?

Will Pensacola resident and Cup legend Zac "17" Ward make an appearance on Fort Morgan Road?

With Sean (The Chaplain) once again without his longtime partner DC, who will Skiba pair with the Cup's spiritual advisor?

Will the slope of Kiva Dunes be based on the Official Scorecard or on the internet?

We hope you will join us for answers to these questions, and more, as the first matches are thrown out Wednesday night at That Place in Front of The Beach Club.
