Seeing Green: Local golf tour helps talented amateurs compete against pros

OKLAHOMA CITY - Two weeks ago, Steven Bowditch won the Valero Texas Open on the PGA Tour and punched his ticket to this week's Masters Tournament.

Last September, he was playing on the Oklahoma-based Fairway Tour, proving anyone can get a shot.

Most of the entry fees are under $200 but winners can make up to $2,000 for a single-day event.

The next tour is coming up on May 3 at Kickingbird Golf Course.

Burt Rieck, the founder of the Fairway Tour, stopped by our studios with more on the tour.
