Graig Nettles Added to ASGA GOLF Tour Line-Up

Elizabeth City, NC (PRWEB) February 19, 2004 –

–The ASGA Tour, Inc. announced today that former Yankees third baseman and World Series Champion, Graig Nettles will be participating on the 2004 Tour. Nettles, who is a 4 handicap, will be competing in a select number of the 15 ASGA tournaments scheduled nationwide in the Tour’s Pro-Net Division.

The ASGA Tour, which has been conducting tour-caliber events in the Pro-Championship Division since 1999 for former PGA Tour players 48 years of age and older who are preparing for the Champions Tour as well as players who are not fully exempt on the Champions Tour, is now offering “everyday golfers” the chance to live their dreams and play on Tour.

Beginning this year, players of all skill levels will be able to compete like the pros for the first time in the Pro-Net Division, a competition offering substantial prize money to golfers ages 18 and older with handicaps as low as zero and as high as 36. Pro-Net Division winners can take home as much as $ 10,000 per event.

The ASGA Tour has all the amenities of the PGA Tour, including electronic leader boards, official scoreboard, real-time scoring, hospitality center, gallery and national television coverage on FOX Sports Net.

Just like the pros, golfers who wish to compete in ASGA Tour events must first go through Qualifying School for both the Pro-Net and Pro-Championship Divisions, being held March 8-26 at golf courses around the country. Nettles, who has celebrity exemption status, will not attend Qualifying School and is eligible to play in the TourÂ’s first event on April 29 at the Majestic Golf Club in Ft. Myers, Fla.

One of the finest defensive third baseman to ever play the position, Nettles played in the Major LeagueÂ’s for 21 years from 1967 to 1988. Nettles had stints with the Minnesota Twins, Cleveland Indians, San Diego Padres, Atlanta Braves and the Montreal Expos, but is best known for his 10 years with the New York Yankees from 1973-1983, during which time he won four American League Pennants and two World Series Championships (1977 and 1978).
