“Think you can conquer the hills?”
The SwingThought.com Tour is the Number One developmental tour for hopeful professionals. Tour alumni have won an impressive 17 major championship victories. Such well-known golfers as Bubba Watson, Jim Furyk, Stewart Cink, Zack Johnson and Ben Curtis have all come through the SwingThought.com Tour!
This year, the Tour has added regional events in addition to their national competitions. The next event in Florida’s Regional Series is dubbed the ‘Mini’ tour. It will be played at Harbor Hills on Feb. 3-5th.
Local Pro Jack Newman will be in the field. Jack hails from Des Moines, Iowa and graduated from Michigan State. He turned Pro the summer of 2010. Now a resident of Lady Lake, he’s one to watch in this week’s tournament.
Three other hopefuls, Clark Klassen, Drew Preston and Randy Hutchison, have made their winter home here. “Being close to Orlando and all the nearby golf events provide a great opportunity to prepare for the next step, the PGA Canada Tour!”, Clark explains.
In April, the SwingThought.com Tour’s National Series will return for the third year to Harbor Hills with a purse of $120,000. Last year’s winner, 22 year old Canadian Adam Svensson, made us proud with his victory at the Web.com Tour Qualifying Tournament. He won the 2015 Q-school by 7 shots. Svensson will enter his first season as a professional golfer with full status on the Web.com Tour. And to think his first tour win was at Harbor Hills last April!
The SwingThought.com Tour continues to grow in popularity and is recognized today as one of the top professional tours in the world. The staff and members of Harbor Hills and the City of Lake Lake were recognized as providing ‘an excellent professional event and experience for the players and staff of the SwingThought.com Tour.’
