If you look at the first page of the forums the schedules are posted and are finalized.

Quick note: we are extending registration until 2PM tomorrow. If you want to get signed up at the last second please call my cell phone at 309.657.2301.

The putting competition will take place tomorrow at my office, which is right next to the Blend Coffee Shop in Washington, IL at 1142 Peoria Street. This competition will start at 3PM and we will have prizes! Also we will have some cupcakes for everyone at the Check-in/Putting Competition tomorrow night.

Our pro field is shaping up in an awesome way with 12 1000+ rated pros on the Men's side with Jay Reading a 13th on the Master's Side. Our pro field is led by Cale Leiviska, Devan Owens and Cameron Colglazier. On the female side our field is led by Catrina Allen, Sarah Hokom and Des Reading. It should be an awesome event so get signed up or come on out on Saturday to watch the semi-finals at 9:30AM at Morton and the finals starting around 1:30PM. Gracies will be serving some awesome food on Saturday and we will have all kinds of awesome merchandise available for sale and a huge raffle. See you there!

I spoke to Will and he was very excited about the tournament but was physically drained from driving across the coast a few times and couldn't physically take any more driving. He hopes to be back next year.

Thanks Matt!

We appreciate all the feedback we have received regarding our tournament and we appreciate everyone supporting our event. Thanks so much for coming out!

We do plan on making a few changes to the 2014 edition and here is a list of a few things we are looking at potentially changing:
-We will attempt to avoid playing any non concrete tees.
-In 2014 we hope to provide a player’s book that will include course addresses, course maps, course distances, address to the player’s party, address to the putting competition, etc.
-We will be doubling the amount of water we provide on the course.
-We will look to secure a sign to display scores during the final 9 instead of announcing the scores on the tee of every hole.
-We will look to provide the putting competition free of charge to all players and look to allow only one mulligan.
-We will be instituting a policy to address ties after 54 holes before the final 9 begins to have a throw-off. This will essentially make sure we only have 4 players in the final 9 per division.
-We will be looking to add more trophies next year.
-We will look to re-tool the raffle so we can pre-draw the winners and keep the items on a table instead of taking 15 to 20 minutes drawing all the numbers while everyone watches.
-We plan on adding more player's pack items!
-We plan on changing up the course order for 2014 (Intermediates will be happy!)
-We will continue to advertise that we will take down an address for any pro player and will be happy to mail pro payouts to anyone that has to leave before the award's ceremony.
-We will try to secure a stereo system to see if we can play some music at the course during the round!

This list is not comprehensive and is subject to change. We may or may not do all of this for the 2014 tournament but we will attempt to make every effort to make changes that our tournament staff agrees upon and that we feel is best for the event.

P.S. I did speak to Andrew today and I am submitting a proposal to grant our event NT status for next season. We hope to submit this proposal in the next few days. We can say that if the PDGA grants us this status we'd be able to offer $15,000 to the pro purse. If you want this to happen send Andrew Sweeton a message at asweeton@pdga.com

Thanks for listening!
