Like a phoenix rising from the dead, the BLUE DEVILS were founded by four Ex-Gropers greats who were known as "The Spine". This team tasted a lot of early success winning x3 straight Governors Cups, seemingly with the world at their feet. Unfortunately, all the worldwide acclaim went to the head of the former Skipper leading to many wayward, selfish & random decisions essentially leaving the franchise in a dire state.
In 2019 the rebuild has begun lead by new captain Wolf Coleman who is known for his hard edge, discipline and win at all costs attitude. The facts are the DEVILS do not have the fancy swings, flush ball striking and crisp touch like the more fancied SILVERBACKS. But what the DEVILS lack in raw talent, they make up with dogged persistence, patience & irrepressible desire to compete on every hole.
The 2019 campaign sees the BLUE DEVILS as massive underdogs but like their heroic new captain they know when the going gets tough, the tough gets going. And for all their golfing talent, the mental toughness of the SILVERBACKS (especially their captain) remains the big question mark hanging over the 2019 Governors Cup like the Harbour Bridge hangs over the rocks. Is the lack of mental fortitude the SILVERBACKS Achilles heel? Ultimately, only time will tell but what a Cinderella story it would be if the DEVILS lift the Governors Cup in 2019.
