INAUGURAL PGA CUP INAUGURAL PGA CUP Inaugural PGA Cup 1973 The inaugural Diamondhead Cup matches were a postscript to the PGA Professional National Championship at Pinehurst, N.C. The matches were the brainchild of BillMaurer of the sponsoring Diamond- head Corporation, then-owner and operator of the Pinehurst Resort. The opening day began with starter Laurie Auchterlonie, honorary professional of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews in Scotland, ordering the players, “Gentlemen, start your en- gines!” The result was a 2-2 deadlock in foursomematches. TheU.S. grabbed the lead for good, 6-2, thanks to inspired play in the four-ball. DonMassengale andRivesMcBee each finished unbeaten in three matches. Massengale downed Bryan Hutchinson and McBee defeated Brian Waites by respective 3-and-2 margins in singles. McBee teamed with Dennis Lyons andMassengale with Craig Shankland for victories in foursomes and four- ball competition. Gene Borek and Babe Lichardus each finished 2-0. Borek bounced back from a strained back that had forced his withdrawal from the PGA Professional National Championship.
