MyGolfPros Tournament Tidibits
* Due to the large field, driving practice has been run on a strict time limit. In 2008 participants were given 30 balls and 10 minutes in which to hit.
* Additionally golfers are told to arrive to the range 1 hour before their scheduled start time. Arriving within 30 minutes of your scheduled time has forfeited player hitting.
* Parents and coach participation in these rounds has been restricted in the past as well.
