The second stop of the PEGT Tour is now under a month away, and the buzz surrounding the fourth annual Missouri Open is building. Power Events’ Florida Open kicked off the tour back in February, and they’ll host the second of six PEGT events on the 2012 calendar in their own backyard.
Redbirds Sports Cafe and Billiards will play host to the event on Thursday, April 19th through Sunday, April 22nd, which could be the largest Golden Tee tournament of the year. PE has added $5,000 into the pot and more than 80 players have already signed up to play.
For those planning to attend the event early, PEGT will be hosting a CTTP tournament that will begin at 8:00 pm on Thursday night. It costs just $10 to enter this double elimination warm-up. On Friday, they will run a handicapped tournament that will start at 7:00 pm. Entry into this event is just $25, and 25% of the field that participates will receive FREE entry into the main tournament.
On Saturday the main event will get underway at noon with a five-course qualifier. This will determine which players make the main bracket and also set up seeding for match play. On Sunday this bracket will play out and by the end of the weekend the 2012 Missouri Open champion will be crowned!
As if you needed more reason to attend the tournament, here’s a few more. Power Events will have PowerPutt LIVE up and ready to be played for anyone looking to check out IT’s latest game. The accommodation situation is also quite wonderful. There are three hotels that are all walking distance from the bar which means you won’t have to worry about a lengthy commute, cab fees or making someone be the DD.
And for those of you that cannot make it, there’s good news for you also. For the first time ever, Power Events will be streaming live matches online. This means you’ll be able to watch some of the day’s biggest matches on your computer, as they happen. This should be a fantastic addition, and we’ll pass along more details soon enough.
