LocaliQ Series Golf Tournament in Auburn


LocaliQ Series Golf Tournament in Auburn

The future stars of the PGA come to town.

After three successful tournaments in Georgia, two in Alpharetta, and one in Pine Mountain, the LOCALiQ Series is leaving the Peach State behind for Alabama, and this week’s Invitational at Auburn University Club. Tournament action begins Tuesday.

The Auburn University Club, located minutes from the Auburn campus, is home to both the men’s and women’s Tiger teams. The course, opened in 1999, surrounds Yarbrough Lake and boasts Saugahatchee Creek as part of its border. Former Auburn golfer Bill Bergin designed the course. Players will test their skills this week at the par-72, 7,354-yard layout

It’s a fast turnaround, with The Classic at Callaway Gardens ending last Friday and the 54-hole event at the Auburn University Club beginning a little more than 80 hours later. Last week, Stoney Crouch stopped Bryson Nimmer’s stranglehold on LOCALiQ Series tournament victories by defeating Hayden Shieh in a three-hole playoff. Nimmer, winner of the first two tournaments, Shieh, a two-time runner-up, and Crouch are 1-2-3 on the Race to The Bahamas Points Standings as the Series approaches its season halfway mark.

Pictured above is former Clemson first-team All-American Bryson Nimmer won the first two LOCALiQ Series tournaments in Alpharetta, Ga., and he sits atop the points standings through three tournaments.

It will be an exciting tournament this week at the AU Club and to see what players will qualify on the course. Check out this tournament and keep following along for updates and scores.
