"The PGA Tour Superstore World Amateur Handicap Championship is the Every Day Golfer's U.S. Open and we are looking forward to the largest World Am since the 2001 tournament when we welcomed 4,675 golfers to the Grand Stand. The effort and preparation invested in the months leading up to this year's tournament will result in the organized, positive event that our golfers expect," he concluded.
“I love participating in this golfing event. I have participated for seven years and every year when it is over I begin looking forward to the next year. I have met all kinds of people in Myrtle Beach. It is a lot of fun,” said Reinschmit.
