A tentative 2006 schedule for the Tight Lies Tour is posted on the tour website. A total of 19 or 20 events is expected, with about half the tournaments taking place in Texas.
I noticed immediately that my hometown of Corpus Christi is without a tournament next year. But these cities will get a visit from the Tight Lies Tour: Victoria, Houston, Garland, Lubbock, Round Rock, Texarkana, Abilene and El Paso. A couple more sites have yet to be determined.
The Tight Lies Tour is one of the best-paying mini-tours in the U.S. and has produced such players as Ryan Palmer, Cameron Beckman, J.L. Lewis and Tim Herron. Tour events are a good mix of young guns looking to get ahead and older pros still enjoying the thrill of competition.
