Things are happening fast at the U.S. Putting Tour as we approach summer. Here are a few highlights.
We’ve expanded the age range for the Junior Golf Division in the 2012 USPT Championship and we’ve created three brackets within the division: 8-10 year olds, 11-13 year olds, and 14-18 year olds. The Junior Division will compete on September 26 and 27, which is a Wednesday and Thursday. We know this makes it tough for kids from outside of San Diego, but we hope some can manage a couple of days off school to compete in the only national putting championship in the U.S. The two possible start times both days will be 3:30 and 5:00 p.m. for the 36-hole putting rounds, which take about 75 minutes to play.
Another piece of news is that a new Canadian Putting Championship is starting this year and the winner will qualify for a spot in our putting tournament. The Canadian Putting Championship takes place in Vancouver at the Golden Eagle Golf Club, August 15-18.
Finally, we’re in the process of working out available tee times at Morgan Run for the on-course tournaments we plan to hold for USPT participants. For golfers coming from outside of San Diego, this means that there is an opportunity to compete in both the putting championship and golf tournaments, while visiting the county.
