Filling fast: Bobby Nichols Scramble more than 60 percent booked


COOKEVILLE, Tenn. -- This year's tournament might be the quickest the Bobby Nichols Scramble has ever filled -- just a few weeks after opening registration for the event, more than 60 percent of the 256 team spots are already taken.

The 2013 Pepsi Bobby Nichols Scramble presented by Budweiser will be May 31-June 2 at three area courses, and the annual fund-raising event continues to move quickly toward full capacity.

"Registration has been steady, and the early registration has really been amazing," said Leveda Birdwell, tournament co-director. "The tournament is still nearly two months away, but all indications are that all 512 individual spots will fill up well before the tournament. Anybody who is interested in playing, or is considering playing, should not delay or they might be disappointed and miss the opportunity.

"The Scramble is a really remarkable weekend with a full schedule of events, and it just continues to grow and grow in popularity," Birdwell said. "Judging from the pace that entries are coming in, I wouldn't be surprised if the entire field is filled up within a few weeks."

Interested golfers can register by calling the Athletics Ticket Office in Eblen Center at (931) 372-3940 or 3941.
