The first day of competition was kicked off with two rounds of qualifying on the Club de Golf La Hacienda where the players had to conquer the narrow dogleg left configuration of the grid.

The second day of the competition was critical to the players, as it was set up to reduce the field to the top 16 players. They all competed in the third round in order to participate in the final head-to-head rounds. A Pro-Am style golf tournament, with the members of the Club de Golf La Hacienda, followed the intense contest.

The third and final day was Championship Saturday. The day began with a putting challenge, Luis Montero de Cote from Mexico went undefeated through round-robin stages and “head-to-head” finals to claim the putting title.

Luis Montero de Cote’s stellar play continued into the long drive championship, but it was Mikey Jarrell from New York who prevailed. He beat Luis Montero de Cote from Mexico in the finals with an Amateur Long Drive record of 400 yards. The reigning Amateur Long Drive™ (ALD) World Champion Corey Culver from Georgia took third place.
