After this weekend, another GT tournament season will be in the books.
Power Events’ Dallas Holiday Classic will mark the end of the PEGT Tour, and we will soon look ahead to the monster lineup in 2013.
Before we turn the page, however, there’s a big tournament to be played. Scratch that, there are TWO big tournaments to be played.
Volcanos in Hurst will play host to the event which is sponsored by TaylorMade Golf.
The festivities get underway this Thursday with a Closest to the Pin contest for those that come in a day early. The following day, an afternoon doubles tournament will begin at 12:30 PM and then a handicap tournament will start at 7:30 that night.
The Dallas Holiday Classic will then begin at noon on Saturday with a five-course qualifier. Any and everyone are encouraged to play, and entry into this event is $100. The top thirty-two players to register the best combined score will advance to the gold bracket.
Match play will then begin later on Saturday and on Sunday, and the Dallas Holiday Classic champion will be crowned. Typically this would be the end of the tournament weekend, but that is not the case here.
The Player of the Year Tournament will begin shortly after the Classic is complete, and the thirty-two players who have racked up the most PEGT Tour Points throughout the six events in 2012 will have one more tournament before the calendars turn.
The winner of that event will walk home with a solid top prize, a RocketBallz Driver and coveted Player of the Year honors. Second place will take home a RocketBallz 3-wood. A TaylorMade golf bag will also be raffled off throughout the weekend.
If you’re in the area, be sure to stop by Volcanos to take it all in. It should be one heck of a show.
For those of you who can’t attend, Power Events will have a live feed at the tournament. We will pass along this feed when it’s available, and we will also recap both tournaments early next week. Want to see how some of the game’s best tackle these courses? Be sure to tune in on Saturday and especially on Sunday.
