All details on the event are below:
The Laughlin Memorial Hospital Tennessee Long Drive Shootout and Pro/Am Scholarship Tournament will open on June 15 and 16 to celebrate its seventeenth year of prime golf.  This fundraising effort benefits individuals, both employees and non-employees, who are seeking an education in the healthcare field.  This event is one of the premier golf outings in the Southeast because of the outstanding long-drive golfers, who attend the Tennessee Shootout; the continued support of sponsors; and volunteers. Long-drive golfers are placed on specific holes to participate in and interact with the pro-am golfers, and the pro-am golfers very much appreciate experiencing the long-drive golfers.
Long Drive preliminaries begin on June 15.  The finals in long drive competition will be held following the pro-am tournament on June 16 and will begin at approximately 4:00/5:00, depending on the completion of the pro-am.  Long Drive preliminaries will begin at 8:00 a.m. on Thursday morning.
The event will be held at Graysburg Hills Golf Course, 910 Graysburg Hills Road, Chuckey, TN.
Based on 48 Long Driver entries, the purse will be $45,000.  The payout is as follows:
1st:   $10,000
2nd:  $6,000
3rd – 4th: $4,500
5th – 8th:  $2,500
9th – 16th: $1,250
To register, call Laughlin Health Care Foundation office at 423-787-5117 or email  Entry fee is $600 per player if you register before May 15th and then $700 after that.

Today is the last day to pay the $600 entry fee and then it goes up to $700 so if you haven't paid give them a call at 423-787-5117.
Tee it high then close the eyes!
