Dixon Golf now title sponsor of The BIG Tournament charity event

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Dixon Golf, manufacturers of the first high performance eco-friendly golf balls, is proud to announce it is a title sponsor of The BIG Tournament, the world's biggest amateur charity golf tournament to be held in Las Vegas, Nevada on November 19-21, 2013.

"We are excited to open registration to the public at this time. The BIG Tournament is such a special opportunity for golfers to make a continuous impact in their community," says Paul Wang, Chair of The BIG Tournament. "Our new web-site will provide all the tools for golfers to get involved on a local level today."

The BIG Tournament is a three-tier process. Round One is now in motion with thousands of charity golf tournaments taking place throughout the United States. The top three teams from each Round One local event are then invited to participate in a 2-person scramble regional competition.

The winning team from each of the regional events wins $1,000 for their charity and free entry & housing for the National Championship in November 2013. The BIG Tournament winner receives $10,000 for their charity. The second and third place teams will win $5,000 and $2,500 for their respective charities. Golfers will also be rewarded with cash prizes, sports equipment and fine jewelry.

"Partnering with The BIG Tournament allows us to be involved in the game and community on a whole new level, a much larger scale. We are going to reach thousands of golfers while benefiting charitable organizations across the entire country," says Dixon Golf's President William Carey. "We encourage our eco-minded golfers to join us in this BIG endeavor."

The BIG Tournament has more opportunities available for both cash and in kind sponsorship for regionals and the BIG National Championship. For more information, email
