NOTES ON THE LIST OF COMPETITORS:
This week’s field is made up of 180 players from 15 countries.
The breakdown of the 180 players per country in the field this week: Argentina (3), Canada (1), Chile (1), England (3), Finland (1), Hong Kong (1), Mexico (5), Panama (1) Scotland (2) , El Salvador (1), Spain (1), South Africa (2), United Kingdom (1) United States (156), Venezuela (1),
This is the second to largest field of the year just behind our event in Alexandria that hosted 280 players. The large field brings strong competition with 14 past APT champions playing. Last years champion, Ryan Baca returns to the field this week after having played on the PGA Tour Latin America the last few weeks. 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 Texarkana. 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 CST on July 11th for round one and play will be 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.
