“It’s an honor to be invited, and this year looks to be the strongest field yet. There are few places around that carry the mystique Seminole does, and it lives up to the hype,” Leopold told GolfNewsRI on his way to the course for practice. 

He adds, “One of my favorite locker rooms as well, with names of all the legends of the game surrounding you. It’s so cool.” 

The tournament begins on Thursday, April 27 and finishes on Saturday, April 29. 

Stewart Hagestad enters the tournament as the defending champion.

“If you can play Seminole, you can play any course in the world,” Ben Hogan once said about Seminole. 

The tournament is 54-holes of stroke play that consists of mid-amateurs and seniors.
