(Aug. 11, 2017) On Saturday afternoon, 120 athletes will compete in “The Tour” regional qualifier at Eagle’s Landing Golf Course in Berlin, which is sponsored by Under Armour.

“The top 10 players from all four [handicap] divisions will advance to a 54-hole national championship at the PGA Golf Club in Port St. Lucie, Florida, on May 18, 19 and 20,” said tour director Ray Taranto.

A 2 p.m. shotgun start will begin the amateur tournament, which is slated to continue into the evening hours and spectators are encouraged to check out the competition.

“The level of competition in our top gun division [0-5 handicap] will showcase some of the best players in the nation,” Taranto said. “Forty out of the 120 golfers competing will get an invite to the national championship.”

In addition, the four winners of each division also receive a free national championship trip package, which includes three rounds of golf, dinner for two and $250 in gifts from Under Armour.

There are 13 regional qualifiers taking place across the nation. Delaware, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Texas, New Mexico, North Carolina, Virginia, California and Florida will also host qualifiers for “The Tour.”
