Sports Spotlight: The Sweetest Golf Tournament Of The Year


WACO (June 7, 2014) The sweetest golf tournament of the year will have no shortage of candy.

"Mars is always generous with us but this year they seem to be a little more generous," said Waco Chamber Of Commerce Director of Sports and Special Events Ashley Futris. "We've got eight pallets of candy. As we said, it's three days, ten courses and endless candy for sure. I don't think we'll be able to give it all away, if you can believe that."

Not sugarcoating any changes, the tournament has a stronger social media push this year.

"We're updating our Facebook constantly and that's linked to our Twitter account with updates featuring our sponsors," said Futris. "Some pictures of what's going on. And as well as that, we've also created an instagram account."

And to sweeten the pot, there will be special trophies for the winners of each age group that are being kept a secret.

"We're dropping a few teasers here and there for our first place awards this year for each age division," said Futris. "It's something special from a former Starburst champion, so you guys can stay tuned for that."
