The four-day tournament begins today at the Country Club at the Golden Nugget here in Lake Charles. The field for this year's tournament is huge and golfers will start teeing off starting at 7:20 am this morning and more golfers tee off every 10 minutes after that all the way until 2:30 pm that day.

After two rounds, the field will be cut down to only 65 golfers to play on the weekend for the championship. It is a really fun way to see a professional golf tournament up close and personal.
