    Uh oh…belbs got paired with someone who can putt 🙂

    A lot of thought and consideration went into these pairings. We have compelling match-ups from top to bottom. Can’t wait to hear everyone’s thoughts on them.

    This is going to be epic, Good luck to everyone, and let the trash talk amp up now that you know who is playing who in the 1st round.

  7. Rbelbin says:

    Bash brothers UNITE!!! Love the pairings.

  8. adwillingham says:

    Outstanding job with the Round 1 pairings!! I’m sure I speak for my partner DirtyDawg when I say I look forward to meeting Esox and Yoccos on the field of play.

  9. TheDue says:

    Going to be a fast paced, barn burner, must see event! Good luck to all involved. “Let’s Get Ready To Rummmmmble!”

  11. Michael Cook says:

    While I can’t be there to witness this amazing event; I look forward very much to following it closely via THP and whatever other media outlets are made available.

    BIG THANKS to Callaway & TaylorMade for their involvement and support of the inaugural Morgan Cup!!

  12. Kelly says:

    I can’t wait until August! I am having a hard time deciding on a team to root for since I have friends on both sides. This is going to be an exciting weekend of golf! I’m trying to put user names with real names at this point. Some interesting pairings on the scramble. Should be some really close matches.

  13. Drumdog says:

    This is truly an epic event.
    Even though I am not participating in it, I still love all the build up and excitement!

  14. TC says:

    Finally! Nice to get an idea of who’s going up against one another. I love the fact that I get to play against my brother, should be even more fun that way. Some compelling match ups for sure. Love the confidence from the two long knocking Paradisians. They are about to get dissected! I hope they remember how successful the pairing of Dustin Johnson and Phil Mickelson was against Luke Donald and Lee Westwood. It’s such an eerily similar match up.

  15. Cg13 says:

    Awesome matchups! I love Ben and I are bringing the team home. Nothing like walking off 18, last pairing of the day, with some points for our team.

  16. JRod says:

    Oh yah! This just got even better if that’s even possible!

    Thank you to Callaway, TMaG, THP and both captains for putting this all together!

  17. dirtydawg67 says:

    Great matchups! AD and I are going to bring it.

  18. White Rhino says:

    Some great matchups listed there for sure. Looking forward to the event and seeing who survives.

  19. Esox says:

    When Packers and Bears fans unite, the power of the two mojos should be unstoppable. Looking forward to the contest with Ryan and Donne.

    God I hate work. I want, no I need, to be playing golf.

    Kevin

  20. Chunkylover77 says:

    Some great matchups in there. Love the Calloway feud right off the bat. Best matchup has to go to Bash Bros vs. Dissectors. That match is going to be tight!

  21. Ryan H. says:

    Wow, is it ever going to be fun to see how this plays out. I really like the pairings. There are some match ups that I really hadn’t thought about in there and I love them. Great job everybody!

  22. Yoccos says:

    I agree Kevin…. Wonder if Jay and Aaron might caddie for us?

    Good job on the pairings.

  23. royalwulff says:

    Looks like some great match ups! I am so looking forward to al this.

  24. Puttin4Bird says:

    Family feud for round round one? Love it. Lots of thought put into those, great stuff

  26. Dude I’m seriously excited for this and I’m not even playing. I think this is a huge event and I will be following it intently that weekend. Good luck to both teams… still haven’t decided which team I’ll be rooting for! But I’m easily bribed.

  27. IceyShanks says:

    Looks like some great matches, can’t wait to see the nicknames for the pairs!

    Can’t wait for the details of the matches and pics.

    I think each of the first round matchups is compelling for different reasons. Each match has the potential to go the distance and provide some fireworks. Thank you THP, Callaway and TaylorMade for making this once in a lifetime event possible!
