Here's a quick update regarding the added cash for the Pro Purse at the A Tier. If you recall, we have raised over $7500 for the AM field in the way of a huge players pack with no money coming out of the entry fees for the players packs. On the pro side.....

  • If we have at least 4 Pro Women, we will add $500 cash to the Pro Women purse.
  • If we have at least 8 Pro Women, we will add $1000 cash to the Pro Women purse.
  • If we have at least 15 Pro Masters/Grand Masters, we will add $500 total cash to those purses and split the cash based on the percentage of players in each division.
  • If we have at least 25 total Pro Masters/Grand Masters, we will add $1000 total cash to those purses and split the cash based on the percentage of players in each division.

For instance, if we have 10 Pro Grand Masters and 15 Pro Masters, we will add $600 to the Pro Masters purse and $400 to the Pro Grand Masters purse.

This means there will be a minimum of $8000 added cash to the Men's Pro purse alone!

Do not wait to sign up for this event as this is only 33 days away! If you know you are playing in this event, please sign up as soon as you can so we can better plan for the event. We have to make plans for volunteers, food, merchandise, players packs, shirts, awards, etc. Its a big help to the LIS crew if you pre-register early so we would appreciate it! We have worked on this tournament for over 1 year so please support us!

World Champion Sarah Hokom has confirmed she is playing and Don Smith will be coming as well! As stated, Devan Owens and Paige Pierce will be coming. I will officially add at least $500 cash to the Women's Purse and will add up to $1000 if we get a few more signed up for Pro Women.

I talked to Will Schusterick this morning and he is excited for the event!

Also, we will have about 20 extra players packs, which of course includes three awesome discs, a clipboard, towel, metal mini, shirt, and a few other small goodies. If anyone wants a players pack but can't play, I have a few extra for sale for $50. Feel free to email me at nate@ledgestonegrp.com if you are interested!

Check out the following link for an amazing disc we will be featuring at the tournament, courtesy of Eric McCabe:

That's a Ti Wasp! We will have 20 of these bad boys for sale for $25 at the September SuperTour! The first ten people who email me at nate@ledgestonegrp.com can buy one of these and also the first ten people who show up at the Thursday Night Putting Competition/Players Party can purchase one (details on the party are forthcoming). This disc is amazing and comes straight from Eric McCabe.

Also, we still have a few players packs left for anyone interested in purchasing one who can't play in the event. $50 plus shipping will get you a players pack. Email me if you are interested! We get more additions to the players pack every day! Thanks to McDonald's for coming on board as a course sponsor!

We are pushing 110 registrations for this event. We have a limited number of spots and a limited number of players packs. As for the free discs in the players packs, I thought I would let everyone know what the discs are: you get a Dana Vicich Signed VP; your choice of a LAT Gold Line Flow, Havoc, or Pain; and your choice of a DGA Sparkle Hurricane, Tsunami, or Rogue. You have to sign up by August 31st to get the free LAT disc. The players packs now have a $115 value with no money coming out of the entry fee for the players packs. Also, we only have 5 Ti Wasps left and 5 Players Packs available to be bought for those that can't play. Email me at nate@ledgestonegrp.com if you are interested in buying a players pack for $50 or an Eric McCabe Ruby Red Ti Wasp for $25! Remember that we are adding $10,000 to the pro purse as well!

P.S. We will announce the details of the putting competition by Tuesday of this week!

Just as a note, we have a limited number of AM players packs for the A Tier. We have less than 65 spots left that will guarantee you a players pack that is now worth more than $115. If you sign up after the 65 remaining players packs are gone you will still be eligible for a players pack but it will be in the form of funny money, other goodies and a signed Dana Vicich VP. Advanced divisions would receive $45 of funny money and all other divisions would receive $35 of funny money so there is definitely some motivation to get signed up before they are all gone!

Also, Mikes Italian Feast will be providing lunch on Friday and Saturday that can be delivered to the course. Lunch will consist of a half torpedo sub, bag of chips and a drink. Lunch is $6 for one day or $10 for both days. You can email me to let me know if you would like me to reserve you one or you can register for it at the Thursday Night Putting Competition (final details forthcoming on Wednesday for the Putting Competition). You can also buy and register for the lunch or both lunches on the morning of the first round.

Quick update on the course order for the A Tier:

Its very likely the course order for Recreation and All Pros besides MPO will be changed around. This is necessitated from current pre-registration levels, compared to what we expected.

At this point in time I will just say that the course order for Men's Recreation, Women's Recreation, Pro Masters, Pro Grand Masters, and Womens Pro are likely to change. Most likely, all Pro Divisions will play two rounds at McNaughton and then one round at Morton, with all divisions playing one round from the shorts and one round from the longs except for Grand Masters and Women (who would play two rounds from the Shorts). The Women's Recreation and Men's Recreation Divisions would then join the MA1 division and play Bradley, Morton and McNaughton.

Men's Pro and All Other Divisions would not be changed. A final decision on this will be made next week. This would not be a major change for most divisions, and even the divisions affected would only see one course change.

Also, check out the Ledgestone Insurance Series forum post to check out the final payouts for the series and the trophies. The following divisions will receive a payout and a trophy: MPO, MPM, MA1, MA2, MA3, MA4, MS1, FW1, FW2, and FW3. At least second place will be paid in all divisions except for MS1 and the three ladies divisions. Third place will also be paid in MA2 and MA3. The top pro is guaranteed $450 cash for winning the series!

P.S. We have 4 players packs for sale for those that aren't playing and still want a players pack and have 4 Ti Wasps left, so feel free to email me at nate@ledgestonegrp.com if you want one!

P.S.S. We will officially be adding $1000 to the Pro Women's purse...let's see some more Pro Women signed up!
