The start of the eGolf Professional Tour is just one week away. The season will commence Febuary 15th at the Palmetto Hall Championship presented by Westin Hilton Head Island. The Charlotte, North Carolina based tour continues to provide high quality competition for professional golfers. The eGolf Tour has provided such stars as Steve Marino, with career earnings close to nine million dollars, and Keegan Bradley, 2011 PGA rookie of the year and winner of the 2011 PGA Championship.
Current PGA pros Matt Bettencourt, Martin Flores, John Mallinger, Cameron Tringale, Derek Lamely, Josh Teater, Kevin Kisner, Blake Adams, and Stephen Gangluff also got there professional start on the eTour. Both Bradley and Flores finished top 20 in last weeks Waste Management Pheonix Open. Mallinger finished T2 at the Humana Challenge earlier this year. Clearly, past and present eGolf players are loaded with talent. So what does the 2012 season hold? What future PGA and Nationwide Tour participants will play right here in the Carolinas? And will you be able to say I saw them before they were stars?
Martin Flores, a past eGolf Tour member, carded a final round 70 to finish tied 19th at the Waste Managment Pheonix Open.
