This year the tournaments first round will start on Thursday, August 7th.
Meanwhile, Monday at Highland Springs a media day was held to talk about the golf event.
This will be the second year the purse will be six thousand and seventy five dollars. Which, last years winner Andrew Svoboda knows all about.
Also, this year marks the tournaments 25th Anniversary.
"It is quite exciting. There are only four of these tournaments around the world today that have existed all 25 years, and this is one of those that will be celebrating it's silver anniversary this year. It's very representative of the sponsors, our volunteers, the golf club itself and so many others that have made it possible to last this long. It just represents the golf enthusiasm in this part of the United States. What's exciting for us is to see really the people out there that are going to be playing the game for the next 25 years," said Executive Director, Jerald Andrews.
SPRINGFIELD, Mo--Tyler Lyons continued rehabbing a strained shoulder Monday with a start on the mound in Springfield.
The start to this one would be delayed about an hour. However, Tyler Lyons would get his start.
In the first, Harold Riggins knocks one that goes off the glove Greg Miclat. Christian Adames scores. 1-0 Drillers.
But Lyons comes right back with a big strike out on Jayson Langfels.
Lyons went two innings with 3 strike outs.
But in the bottom of the first, Jacob Wilson hits the long ball to make it 2-1 Cards.
Springfield would lead 5-3 with one out in the top of the 9th, when there was another rain delay.
"Well obviously the second inning went a little cleaner than the first. I felt fine in the first inning too. Not really any difference in the innings just a little better luck. Even in spring training you got to start somewhere, you got to build up. For me the next time out I got to being a little bit better, a little bit stronger and the ability to go a little bit longer," Lyons says.
