World League FlingGolf Announces San Diego Open on ESPN
ESPN, the Worldwide Leader in Sports, following its coverage of the New Swarm Classic in 2022, will cover a WLF Tour Event for the second year. In this case, the first tournament of 2023, the San Diego Open, will be on the network's schedule.
Eighteen of WLF's Top 20 players have already committed to the event, and there is a total purse of at least $3500 and a cash prize on the line of a minimum of $1500 for the winner of the Individual Championship. Additional prize amounts will be offered for the Team Doubles and finalists in each event.
On the Friday before the Individual Championship, there will be a chance for anyone to "Play with the Pros" to learn some new skills and techniques and have a great round with one of the WLF's top players. First come, first served. 3 slots per pro. Register Here.
WLF has selected two courses for the weekend: Riverwalk Golf Club in the city's Mission Valley will host the Individual Championship on Saturday, February 25, and Twin Oaks Golf Course in San Marcos will play host to the Team Doubles Championship on Sunday the 26th.
The Individual Championship at Riverwalk will start with a 7:30 AM Shotgun start, and a 5 Hole, 5 Player Finals will begin at 1230. Spectators and media will be permitted free of charge for this event.
The Team Doubles event will use an alternate shot format, testing out each duo's complimentary skill sets.
Registration is open to any player, with 20 slots temporarily reserved for local San Diego County/So Cal residents. Separately, there will be an opportunity for anyone interested in honing their game and learning tips and techniques to play an 18 hole round with a top 10 player on Friday at Riverwalk. These spots are limited to 30 players on a first come first served basis.
The 2023 WLF Tour is sponsored by New Swarm, the creator of FlingGolf, which will have its latest FlingSticks for attendees to demo and for purchase during the SDO.
