Better jump: Bobby Nichols Scramble filling quickly

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. -- The field for the 2014 Pepsi Bobby Nichols Scramble presented by Budweiser continues to move toward full capacity.

As of Monday morning, 80 percent of the team spaces were filled for the June 6-8 fund raising tournament hosted at three area golf courses by Tennessee Tech Athletics. Before long, the entire field of 528 golfers will be full and somebody will be left out.

"Registration has been steady," said Leveda Birdwell, tournament co-director. "The tournament is still a month away, but weexpect the field to fill up well before then. Anybody who is interested in playing, or is considering playing, should not delay or they might be disappointed and miss the opportunity.

"The Scramble is a really remarkable weekend with a full schedule of events, and it just continues to grow in popularity," Birdwell said. "Judging from the pace that entries are coming in, I wouldn't be surprised if the field is filled up within the next week, or so."

Interested golfers can register by calling the Athletics Ticket Office in Eblen Center at (931) 372-3940 or 3941.
