The early entry deadline for the golf.com World Amateur Handicap Championship has been extended to June 21
Golfers have until June 21 to receive an early entry discount when registering for the 28th annual Golf.com World Amateur Handicap Championship, which will be held between August 29 and September 2 in South Carolina.
New players who register before the deadline will pay $500 (£304) for the 72-hole event played on Myrtle Beach area golf courses, instead of the original $550 (£335), while past participants are being offered entry for just $450 (£274).
Over 3,000 amateur golfers from across the globe are expected to compete to become the World Amateur Golf Champion.
They would be well-advised to take out comprehensive
sports travel insurance to cover any possible injuries and loss.
Those registering for the World Am, which will be hosted by Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday, will get the opportunity to play four round, receive a gift bag upon arrival and enjoy food and drink for four evenings.
The entry fee also includes admission to the "World's Largest 19th Hole" at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center, where they can enjoy the golf exhibits or simply indulge in more traditional 19th-hole pursuits.
Dave Macpherson, the World Am tournament director, said: "This is the time to take advantage of the early entry discount to participate in the World Am."
