Janet Jackson's breast is briefly exposed by Justin Timberlake during the Super Bowl halftime show, Lance Armstrong of Austin, Texas wins an unprecedented 6th consecutive Tour de France cycling title and Fox Hunting is outlawed in the UK. Popular films of the year included Shrek 2, Meet the Fockers and the Day After Tomorrow.
Following the Rusper event in 2003
interest in the event waned from a number of individuals -
people were growing up and getting other commitments such as
starting families. Regrettably despite some persistence from the
organisers a Tournament in 2004 did not happen - at this stage
the writing was on the wall for the future of a UYOA Tournament.
A hybrid event did occur in July of
that year which involved the players who participated in the
previous year's Tour event. The UYOA Classic was held at
Dartmouth Golf and Country Club over 3 days.
Designed by Jeremy Pern, Dartmouth Golf & Country Club offers 2 exceptional golf courses, both created with sweeping fairways, ample all year round tees, and of course superb greens created from the dramatic surrounding landscape, all built to USGA Championship specification.
Dartmouth Golf and Country Club is honoured to have been selected as one of the top 80 golf courses in Great Britain and Ireland and was recently voted within the Top 100 hidden gems in Great Britain by the highly acclaimed "Golf Monthly" magazine.
This was a mammoth 54 hole event along
the same principle as that of the Tour. Specific information on
this event is sketchy - it certainly involved Rolfy Tomlinson,
Brent Mariner, Simon Assirati and Steve O'Grady.
The event obviously involved overnight accommodation
at the club with Rolf and Brent sharing and Steve and the Azz in
the other room - recollections are that Steve was quite
disturbed by the Azz's continued nakedness in their room (but
that's another story! lol).
As to the event itself no scores are
available though it is believed Steve O'Grady did take the
outright title at the end of the event - well done Steve.
UYOA - Be The Best
UYOA is a brand
conceived to provide a fusion of social interaction with a competitive
event without the stuffy rules and regulations of other clubs.
