MONTEREY, Calif. (Dec. 4, 2008) -- The amateurgolf.com Christmas Classic has historically been our most popular events, and the 2008 tourney is no different.
For the second year in a row, the competition will be split over two courses, Pacific Grove Golf Links and Del Monte Golf Course. As of this writing, there are still a few spots open, if you want to join us, call Trisha Williams at 408-406-2035.
The Christmas Classic was founded by 2-time California State Amateur Champion Casey Boyns over 20 years ago and it always attracts a great field. Boyns won the tourney in 2007 in dramatic fashion with a birdie on the first playoff hole to top Chris Marin. To watch footage from that event, click here.
Both players will be back this year, with the added intrigue of Marin facing off with Randy Haag for the amateurgolf.com Player of the Year race. Marin currently trails Haag by 75 points, with 100 points awarded to the winner of this event. To see the complete standings, click here.
