2019 Amateur Long Drive (ALD(TM)) World Championship Returns to Barefoot Resort
Posted by Donald Hood on August 6th, 2019
(1888 PressRelease) The Third Annual ALD(TM) World Championship will return to Barefoot Resort & golf in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina for the second straight year.
Columbia, SC - Each year the ALD™ Championship Series culminates in a World Championship for competitors of all ages and abilities. With male and female divisions for Youth (13 & under), Junior (14 - 17), Open (all ages), Senior (44 - 59), Super Senior (60 - 69), 70+ (over 70), Military / Veteran, and Adaptive, anyone can compete. “We have competitors from age 4 to 77 this year,'' remarked ALD™ founder, Jeff Gilder. “There’s a division for everyone, regardless of age and ability.”
ALD™ completed over 40 tournaments in leagues in the USA and Canada for the 2018/19 season. The new 2019/20 season begins September 1st with significant growth planned that includes doubling the number of tournaments across the USA and Canada and adding more countries. The new season will include competitions in India, South America and Mexico.
“Our largest division is the Open Men’s division,” says Gilder. “Many of those guys have aspirations for professional long drive, and will use ALD™ to work on their game. But, many of our hitters just enjoy the challenge to compete against someone of their own skill level. There’s nothing like getting on the tee box with only one goal...to hit the ball as far as possible with loud music and screaming fans in the background. It is exciting and extremely competitive!”
Anyone who has not yet competed this season, but would like a shot at the World Championship may enter the Last Chance Qualifier on August 15th at Barefoot Resort & Golf. Several competitors from this event will transfer to the World Championship the following day.
