Top professional long drivers will compete for a $10,000 first prize in the Heartland Shootout, set for June 29-30 at Red Tail Run Golf Course in Decatur, Illinois.
“We are pleased to have the Heartland Shootout among our LDA Tour events this year,” said LDA executive vice president Michael Ambriz, noting that with the addition of the Heartland Shootout the 2012 LDA Tour features eight separate events plus a season-ending Tour Championship for top performers.
Decatur resident Sam Turner will serve as Heartland Shootout tournament director and host. “Sam over the past few years has done an excellent job conducting independent long drive events and building an audience for our sport in and around Decatur,” Ambriz said.
