It's the perfect weather for the Fifth Annual Melwood Prince George’s County Open, featuring top professional golf stars competing on the Nationwide Tour at the University of Maryland’s golf course. The tournament runs from May 30th to June 5th.
A few local golfers are in the tournament including: 28-year-old, Naval Academy graduate and Annapolis resident, Billy Hurley. Prior to serving on a Navy destroyer in the Persian Gulf last year, he won seven college titles and in 2004 was the sixth-ranked amateur in the world.
Owned and operated by the PGA Tour, the Nationwide Tour identifies players who are ready to compete and win on golf’s biggest stage. More than two out of three PGA Tour members are Nationwide Tour alumni. Through the efforts of the three tours, sponsors, players, and volunteers, the PGA supports over 2,000 local charities and has surpassed $ 1.6 million in charitable giving.
