TYLER, March 23, 2013-- The 27th annual UT Tyler Suddenlink Patriot Million Dollar Hole-in-One Contest will be May 11 – 18, on The University of Texas at Tyler campus, President Rodney H. Mabry announced.

Contest finals will be Sunday, May 19 at Hollytree Country Club.

“Since its creation by the Patriots organization in 1984, the event has raised more than $1 million for UT Tyler scholarships,” said President Mabry.

The contest offers amateur golfers age 18 and older the opportunity to compete, at $1 per shot, in preliminary daily rounds.

Daily qualifiers are those who hit a hole-in-one, as well as those who hit closest to the hole during the daily qualifying rounds. Those who qualify will advance to the finals where a hole-in-one will win $1 million, $25,000 or a 2013 Cadillac SRX.

Saturday, May 11 and Friday, May 17 will feature extended hours and allow contestants to try and qualify until 11 p.m. under “The Night Lights.” The tee box and green will be well-lit for players and feature one additional qualifier each hour from 7 – 11 p.m.
