Malcolm DeMille handcrafted trophies shine brightly at Mizuho Americas Open and AdventHealth Championship

At LPGA Mizuho Americas Open the audience was kept on their toes watching a thrilling head-to-head between Hannah Green and Nelly Korda. On the 18th hole, Nelly Korda shot par to seal the win and take home the captivating Mizuho Americas Open trophy—a 13.5” tall cup paired with a crystal studded golf ball made by Malcolm DeMille.

The black rhodium plated Mizuho Americas Open cup is detailed with a rhodium plated New York City artistically designed skyline that wraps around the base of the bowl and gold-plated handles that reflect the cables on the Brooklyn bridges. The tournament name is also prominently placed on the top center of the cup, plated in both silver and black rhodium to ensure the tournament name showed brightly. A band of crystals bring a touch of sparkle to the collar unifying the cup’s bowl and foot, along with the 3” black rhodium plated, crystal paved, golf ball which sits next to the cup on a black acrylic base. At the winner’s presentation, trophy cup was removed from the base and given to this year’s Mizuho Americas Open Champion Nelly Korda.

Meanwhile, on the Korn Ferry Tour circuit, Harry Higgs played his way to the top at the AdventHealth Championship. Higgs’ hometown was out if full support, and could be heard near and far when he eagled from 83 yards on the 72nd hole, and again when he landed a 7-foot birdie on the file playoff hole against fellow competitor Tanner Gore. In the end, Harry Higgs celebrated his win raising up the handcrafted AdventHealth Championship made by Malcolm DeMille.

The unique trophy stands over 10” tall and celebrates the AdventHealth “butterfly” logo. Finely crafted in nickel plate, a swirling detail raises up to the AdventHealth logo that is filled with epoxy color. The sculpture sits on a 2-tiered satin black wood base with a wraparound plate that features three logos—the host club (Blue Hills Country Club), Korn Feery Tour, and the AdventHealth Championship logo.

The team at Malcolm DeMille sends a full-hearted congratulations to Champions Nelly Korda and Harry Higgs, and extends our deepest gratitude to Mizuho Americas Open and AdventHealth Championship for believing in us to take the concept of a classic trophy and elevating it to one that is truly one of a kind.
