World Am Final Deadline Approaching


August 2 is the Final Day to Enter Golf’s Largest Single-Site Tournament

July 19, 2010, Myrtle Beach, S.C. – The final entry deadline for the 27th annual World Amateur Handicap Championship is set for August 2. Registration for the 72-hole tournament is $550 and can be purchased by visiting the tournament web site at WorldAmGolf.

The World Am will be held August 30 through September 3 as more than 3,000 amateur golfers are expected to converge on more than 50 Myrtle Beach area golf courses to compete for the right to be world champion.

Entry into the tournament includes four rounds of golf, a gift bag, daily continental breakfast and access to the “World’s Largest 19th Hole” at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center each evening after tournament play. The 19th Hole features an extensive golf exposition, equipment demos, entertainment, open bars, concerts, prize drawings and food from some of Myrtle Beach’s finest restaurants. This year, the 19th Hole will also include appearances by GOLF magazine contributor and network golf analyst David Feherty, Golf Channel analyst Charlie Rymer and short game guru Dave Pelz.

“We are anticipating a final rush of golfers registering for the World Am in the next couple of weeks,” said Dave Macpherson, the World Am tournament director. “When you consider four rounds of golf on some of the finest courses in the Myrtle Beach area, nightly access to the ‘World’s Largest 19th Hole’ and a chance to win a world championship, it’s an experience golfers will enjoy.”

Hosted by Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday, the World Amateur Handicap Championship is a 72-hole tournament. Players are flighted according to their handicap and at the conclusion of the four rounds, flight winners advance to the 18-hole world championship playoff at the renowned Dunes Golf & Beach Club.

The World Am features six competitive divisions, ranging from men and women 49 years-of-age and under to the super seniors 70 years-of-age and older. The event’s inclusiveness is apparent in its past champions. Players with handicaps as low as three and as high as 34 have won the World Championship and three women have earned the distinction including 2009 winner Linda Fuller from Richmond, Texas.

The more than 50 Grand Strand golf courses comprising this year’s World Am are some of the finest in the area including all four Barefoot Resort & Golf courses, True Blue Golf Plantation, Tidewater Golf Plantation, Grande Dunes, TPC Myrtle Beach and all three courses at Myrtle Beach National.
