Minnesota’s Andy Fox Wins Golden Tee Player of the Year Title
(January 5, 2012 – Arlington Heights, IL) The results are in and it’s official: Golden Tee tournaments are alive and well.
After 12 months, 6 tournaments, hundreds of players, $100,000 in prize money and driving thousands of miles crisscrossing America, the Power Events Golden Tee Tour ended with a flourish over the weekend of December 9-11 at Volcano’s Bar and Grill in Hurst, TX.
Two major competitive events were held that weekend, the Dallas Holiday Classic and the Golden Tee Player of the Year Finals. A field of 93 players competed for over $25,000 in cash – the largest purse of the year.
But the action was far from over with Stenmark’s victory. For the past year players competing in the PEGT Tour accumulated points based on their finishes in the five prior tournaments. After the Dallas tournament ended the top 32 point winners were then seeded by total points and they competed for the Player of the Year title. When the dust cleared Andy Fox from Minneapolis was the last man standing and the POTY title was his. His accomplishment earned him $2,300, a set of Ping irons and the POTY trophy.
Gary Colabuono, marketing director at Incredible Technologies, the maker of Golden Tee, said that the PEGT Tour brings a level of excitement to the game that local contests just can’t generate.
“When you have a hundred guys in a room playing on 20 machines, whooping it up on every shot, you can really feel the excitement. It’s not just two buddies playing for a beer. There’s the thrill of victory at a high level and there’s big cash to be won. I encourage operators to contact Power Events to learn more about bringing a big Golden Tee tournament to one of their locations.”
