A pair of Champions Tour events are coming in Texas during the month of October, and that means two opportunities for the over-50 set to take a shot at a Tour event through Monday qualifying.
The Administaff Small Business Classic will be played at Augusta Pines Golf Club in Spring Oct. 13-15. And the AT&T Championship will be played at Oak Hills Country Club in San Antonio Oct. 20-22.
The Southern Texas PGA is conducting Monday qualifiers for both events. These one-round qualifiers are open to professional golfers ages 50 and over. All entries must be directed to the Southern Texas PGA via FAX, e-mail or through on-line entry procedures. Entry fee for each qualifier is $400 for non-members of the Champions Tour, $200 for current Associate Members of the Champions Tour and $100 for current Regular or Veteran members of the Champions Tour.
The Administaff Small Business Classic qualifier takes place on Oct. 9 at the Tradition Course at Cypresswood Golf Club in Spring. The AT&T Championship qualifier takes place on Oct. 16 at Comanche Trace in Kerrville.
In both events, the fields are limited to 156 golfers, of whom only the top two stroke-play finishers gain entry into the respective Champions Tour event.
The entry deadline for the Administaff Small Business Classic qualifier is 5 p.m. on Oct. 6. The entry deadline for the AT&T Championship qualifier is 5 p.m. on Oct. 13.
