TOP WOMEN GOLFERS TO CONVERGE IN ELDORADO, ARK. Beginning today and throughout the weekend, the top rising stars in women’s golf from all over the world will be in El Dorado, Arkansas -- competing for a total purse of $150,000 and a chance to join the Ladies’ Professional Golf Association Tour. It’s all part of the Symetra Tour’s - Murphy USA El Dorado Shootout. Senior Vice President and General Council for Murphy USA, John Moore explains what the tour.
"Symetra is really what they call the road to the LPGA much like the web.com acts as a feeder tour to the PGA, the Symetra Tour acts as a feeder tour to the LPGA for ladies' golf. We are the only event in a four-
state area that Symetra holds a golf tournament. So that includes Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Texas, so we;re the only Symetra tour in the four-state area. They (Symetra) host 22 or 23 golf tournaments throughout the season and come up with a top 10 money winner list. And those top 10 ladies move on to the LPGA the next year. And so we're very fortunate to bring championship ladies' golf to the south Arkansas area."
The Symetra Tour’s Murphy USA El Dorado Shootout at Mystic Creek tee’s off Friday morning and runs throughout Sunday.
