The tournament is invitation only, and has been held since 2001. The course is a top 100 course in the US. It was designed by Rees Jones at a hub of Southern golf in Sea Island, GA. According to Jones’ website, “This links-style course offers many spectacular views. The terrain on the front nine is basically flat and the fairways are lined by trees, but the back nine opens to the ocean, which comes into play on the final three finishing holes. The wind is always a major factor.”
Martin tees off at 9:50AM while Auggie and Gordo tee off at 10:00AM. You can follow their rounds here.
