    I have read recently that the R&A would be ok with the PGA asking to move The Open to the last major of the year. Although I don’t know exactly how it will work out, if The Open moves it means the RBC will be better positioned for a wider variety of players higher up in the OWGR. Fingers crossed.
    On the other side of the coin, this year’s field is pretty good and provided no one bails after the Pro-Am, it should be quite good.

    As a Canadian, I wish our nation’s Open would be held a few weeks earlier or a few weeks later than the British Open. Quite a few of the best players in the world don’t go there because it is so close the conclusion of the British Open. Those guys who are in the CDN open field now are probably not over the jet lag. If it wasn’t for the deep pockets of RBC bribing the top tier players to attend this field would be a lot smaller.

Wednesday’s photos from the 2019 Terra Cotta Invitational

Published

on

GolfWRX is live from the 2019 Terra Cotta Invitational at Naples National Golf Club, which will be contested April 26-28. Past winners of the amateur event include Justin Thomas and Emiliano Grillo.

Denny Glass, chairman of the Terra Cotta Invitational, was kind enough to give us a little more information about the tournament.

For GolfWRX members who aren’t familiar, tell me a little bit about the tournament and its history

Glass: The Terra Cotta Invitational began in 1996 and was originally a combination stroke play/match play event. 20 players were invited and they played 36 holes of stroke play then the top four finishers went on to match play with the others playing an 18 hole consolation match.

I changed it to a 54-hole stroke play event with 50 players in 2006 when I took over as Tournament Chair. This was done to be eligible for Titleist/Golfweek Amateur Ranking Points. The field increased over the years and now has 75-81 players. The tournament is now ranked as a “B” level event in the WAGR (World Amateur Golf Rankings) run by the USGA and R&A. This ranking is one level below the top-ranked events in the world. The WAGR rankings are based on the strength of the field so we are proud to be ranked so highly.

As it’s an invitational tournament, can you tell me a bit about who gets invited in general and who’s in the field this year, specifically? Tournament format?

Glass: It is an invitational so we invite as many of the top-ranked amateur players as are available. The field consists of many juniors (up to age 18), mid-amateurs (19-25) and some seniors (50+), along with collegiate players. While it is an invitational, we still receive more than 150 applications to play.

Can you talk about the host course and the relationship with Naples National?

The tournament is played at Naples National Golf Club. The tournament was started by the membership back in 1996. The club opened in 1993. The club hosted the World Championship of Golf, which was an LPGA event in its second year.

I know the charitable impact is important. Can you tell us about that?

The net proceeds are donated to Naples based children’s focused charities. The tournament has donated over $517,000 since it began.
