Are you a golfer? Are you a fan of the PGA tour? If the answers are yes, then get ready for a professional golf tournament making a stop here in Lake Charles.

It's the PGA's Korn Ferry Tour where golfers compete on this tour to move up to the actual PGA tour to compete with the likes of Tiger Woods, Justin Thomas, and all the other top professional golfers in the world.
