The fourth annual United States Professional Hickory Golf Championship will be conducted at the Temple Terrace Golf & Country Club in Tampa, Florida, on Monday, February 24, 2014. In this retro tournament, all participants play with pre-1930 wood-shafted golf clubs or replicas of the same, along with reproduction balls of the era (clubs and balls are provided free to all participants needing them). Entry is open to all golf professionals, male and female, and the fee is $100 for a guaranteed purse of $5,000 in this USGTF-sponsored event. The prime reason for the creation of this tournament is to celebrate, preserve and protect the origins of our game. Our hope is that the tournament will provide a link to a time that is getting easier and easier to forget. We believe history is important, useful and should be kept relevant. Do we expect you to thrown down your modern implements and take up hickory golf? Of course not. Just enjoy and celebrate the roots of our game in the manner of Hagen and Sarazen for a single day. We promise it will be an experience you will not forget. For more information and to enter the tournament, please visit www.USProHickory.com.
