“The U.S. Putting Tour is very excited to welcome this year’s Canadian Putting Championship winner to the 2012 USPT Championship,”
Mr. Hartley went on to say that he expects golfers from across the United States to compete in the 2012 USPT Championship, with some entering the putting championship directly and others gaining entry at qualifying events, similar to the Canadian Putting Championship winner.
Hartley indicated that anyone can hold an official USPT qualifying event, including club professionals, men’s and ladies’ clubs, mini-tours, charities, and individuals who are interested in running putting tournaments as a part-time business. He cited the example of the Texas-based All-Star Golf Tour, which plans to send several of its tour players to the USPT Championship.
The USPT Championship has a Pro Division and multiple Amateur Divisions. The Pro Division of the putting championship is open to all golfers 13 years of age and older. Men and women will compete against each other in this division. The four Amateur Divisions are for Men, Women, Seniors and Juniors, with the Junior Division containing three age brackets for 8-10 year olds, 11-13 year olds and 14-18 year olds.
Golfers can enter the putting championship now at the U.S. Putting Tour’s website, http://www.usputtingtour.com. The entry fee is $250 for the Pro Division and $100 for the Amateur Division.
