This is one of the smaller fields of the year as we head into the Southwest Kansas Pro-Am. The smaller field does not reflect the difficulty of the field as there are 5 past APT champions playing in the Southwest Kansas Pro-AM. Greg Eason (England) finished second on the money list in 2020 and is near the top of the list again in 2021. Eason has not been able to get into the winners circle yet in 2021 but his steady play will give him a chance to compete in Garden City. Gage Ihrig (Goodland, KS) has had two great finishes this year with a T3 finish at the Grand Casino Open and a T6 at the United Way Charity Golf Classic it seems Ihrig’s game is coming into form. Ihrig also had one of the best stretches of holes throughout the year with a 29 at the Grand Casino Open which resulted in him tying the course record. Ihrig has proven he can compete, but will he be able to make the jump into the winner’s circle.
Action gets underway at 7:30 A.M. CT round one with play starting off No. 1 tee and No. 10 tee. A trophy presentation by the clubhouse is set to follow the final round of play. Attendance is free to the public.
