2011 Southern Gold Shootout promises to be the most exciting yet!

The 2011 Southern Gold Shootout will renew again this year on September 3-4, 2011.  This year’s tournament promises to be the most exciting yet with a new format for Junior Gold qualifying.  Each day of the tournament will crown a Junior Gold winner in both male and female divisions.  The winners from both days will bowl head-to-head for $200 in expense money!  This doubles the amount of spots awarded in previous years and adds even more excitement to the tournament.

The scholarship portion of the tournament remains the same with bowlers trying to reach the top six scores in both the male and female divisions.  Additionally, bowlers can re-enter in the scholarship portion of the tournament to try and get into the top six spots. Furthermore, the guaranteed 1st place scholarship has risen to $500 for the winning male and female, and the $3,000 for a 300 game remains an elusive but tantalizing prize.  Tournament directors hope to expand the impressive field of entries from last year’s tournament which included bowlers from:  Massachusetts, Minnesota, Virginia, Oklahoma, New York, Illinois, Alabama, North and South Carolina, Michigan, Wisconsin, Arkansas, Florida, and Tennessee.  For more information please contact Kelly Marlin at or call 615-355-0501.
