COOKEVILLE, Tenn. -- Always one of the most popular summer golf tournaments in the region, the 2013 Pepsi Bobby Nichols Golden Eagle Scramble presented by Budweiser will be held May 31 through June 2 on three Cookeville-area courses.

The tournament, which is named in memory of former player, coach and Hall of Famer Bobby Nichols, is hosted by the Tennessee Tech University Athletics Department and serves as a major fund raising event for the Tennessee Tech Athletics Association.

"This tournament is not only an exciting and enjoyable event, it is also a fund raising tournament, and we are so grateful for all of the people who make it such as success each year, from the players to the sponsors to the volunteers," said Mark Wilson, TTU Director of Athletics. "The primary purpose has been, and will continue to be, to generate revenue for the athletic teams and student-athletes, and we are committed to making it one of the best tournaments around."

The tournament, the largest in the region, will feature more than 500 golfers playing three days on three area courses. The event will return to the Cookeville Golf Club, Ironwood Golf Course and White Plains Golf Course.

Registration will begin on Tuesday, March 12. For more information, call the Athletics Ticket Office at (931) 372-3940.
