The professionals will be competing for 55-thousand dollars in the three round tournament at Irv Warren.

192 pros are competing for the big money--and there is a 30 man waiting list--despite the entry fee being $975 dollars.

Club pro Chris Black of Independence finished 2nd in 2010...Black says talent competing this weekend is phenomenal.

Black said, "So many great players--I have a friend in the car business and he says junk doesn't travel...and I agree with that all of these guys are great talent from all over the world and it's good to see the local talent to compete against worldwide competition really."

The professional and amateur tournaments begin Friday.
