"I was very happy to host the event this week," head coach Jim Anderson said. "All the teams were treated to true championship golf. We saw all conditions. We saw wind, rain, warmth, cold, calm and everything else. The golf course was set up perfectly and challenging, which is usually a really good recipe. The best team won this week."
