2013 Cleveland Golf / Srixon Pro-Scratch Invitational Presented By E-Z-Go Tees Off At Angel Park Golf Club July 14-15
Published on Tue, Jul 9, 2013 (9:07 a.m.)LAS VEGAS, Nev. – The 2013 Cleveland Golf / Srixon Pro-Scratch Invitational Presented by E-Z-GO® will take place Sunday, July 14 and Monday, July 15 at Angel Park Golf Club. Nearly 80, two-person teams comprised of one professional and one scratch amateur will compete for a total prize purse of more than $17,000 in a 36-hole, stroke-play, one-better-ball format. The event is currently sold out; however, golfers may contact Angel Park’s Tournament Director, Ben Buck, 702.967.3213, [email protected] to be placed on the waiting list.
“This is an event that we all look forward to each year,” said Kris Strauss, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for OB Sports Golf Management. “And considering that it’s already sold out, many other golfers must be looking forward to it as well. No doubt our sponsors, most of which have been with us for years, have a lot to do with that. Their support allows us to put on quite an event.”
As Strauss mentioned, Cleveland Golf, Srixon, E-Z-GO®, Bellagio Resort / Casino, Grey Goose, Southern Wine & Spirits of Nevada, Meadow Gold, Budweiser, Sysco, Miller Lite and others all pitch in to make the event a success. The teams travel to Las Vegas from California, Arizona, Washington, Hawaii, Florida and beyond to compete for cash, gift certificates and pride throughout the two-day event. The team entry fee for the event is $400 and it includes green fees, golf cart, unlimited practice balls, lunch following the first round, continental breakfast prior to final round, BBQ afterwards, awards ceremony and a tee gift.
There is also an optional team skins competition at a cost of $20 per team per day. And following first-round play, the “Cloud 9 Derby” kicks off with its unique sudden-death, alternate-shot format where the lowest team scores advance to the next hole until only one team remains. The field is limited to the top 15 teams (plus ties) that prepaid at registration prior to the first round. This fun-filled “event within the event” is part of local lore as the 1996 Cloud Nine Derby featured an exciting hole-in-one by local touring professional Robert Gamez on the first hole. Teams that don’t qualify will be placed in a separate purse for payout based on the results of the second round.

Last year, the team of professional, Joel Kijowski, and amateur, Kevin Penner, took top honors, posting 60-64 for a 124 total score. This was two shots better than team of BJ Brady and John Bucker. For their efforts, Kijowski earned $1,450 in cash and Penner earned $750 in Angel Park gift certificates.
