Norman, Okla. -- The University of Oklahoma men's golf program will host the Third Annual Sooner Open, presented by the Chip-In Club on Friday, Oct. 21, at the Jimmie Austin OU Golf Club.
Proceeds from the event, which takes place the day before the Sooners' football game against Texas Tech, will benefit the men's golf program. Money raised through Chip In Club events like the Sooner Open allows OU men's golf to fund capital projects, scholarships and other ventures that allow the Sooners to compete at the highest level.
In the events first two years, the tournament played host to full 34-team fields. This year’s Sooner Open will play host to a 36-team field with each team fielding four participants. Registration will begin at 11 a.m. and a pre-tournament lunch will be provided to all participants. Golf will begin at 12:30 p.m. with a shotgun start.
An awards program will follow the event at 6 p.m. with prizes given to the top eight teams. Last year's winners received a two-day, all expenses paid, trip to Flint Hills National Golf Club.
