2011 Southwest Kansas Pro-Am at-a-glance

Published 8/1/2011 in Pro-Am

What: 32nd Annual Southwest Kansas Pro-Am/Adams Golf Pro Tour Series
When: Aug. 1 — Aug. 7, 2011
Where: Buffalo Dunes Golf Course and The Golf Club at Southwind, Garden City. Both courses are located south of Garden City on Highway US83.
Field: Amateurs — 240 players compete as teams of four playing with one professional each of the final two days of the tournament. A scramble format is used where either the pro’s score or the team scramble score can count toward the team’s total. Players are assigned to teams based on their golf handicap.
Pros — Approximately 120 professionals will compete for $100,000 in prize money in the tournament. After the Wednesday-Thursday rounds for professionals, the field is reduced to the low 45 scores and ties to play with the amateur teams on Friday and Saturday.
Format: (Pros) 72 holes individual stroke play. In case of a tie, a sudden death playoff beginning on the 9th hole at The Golf Club at Southwind will commence immediately following the end of regulation play.
Who Benefits: Proceeds from the Pro-Am are donated to the St. Catherine Hospital Newborn Intensive Care Unit to help in purchasing critical care equipment. In 31 years, an estimated $900,000 has been raised for the NBICU. The St. Catherine Hospital Development Foundation has formed the Stephen C. Meyers, M.D., Endowed Fund to assist the hospital with the opportunities to provide advancements in education to nurses and respiratory therapists working in the Maternal and Child Services Department. In 2010, 25% of the charitable proceeds from the Pro-Am went to Dr. Meyers’ Endowed Fund and the remaining 75% went directly to the NBICU for new equipment purchases.
