The 15th Annual Duboise Electric IRT Pro/Am Classic presented by Langston Drug Store will be held on March 31-April 2 at World Class Fitness, 6206 South 31st Street, Fort Smith, Arkansas. This Tier 4 tournament is a highlight on the IRT’s Satellite Tour schedule, which was designed for a couple of reasons.
The satellite tour allow lower ranked players the opportunity to play higher ranked players without a qualification process like at Tier 1s. It lets players test themselves against the best and see if they can compete.
The second purpose is to start filtering some of these satellite events into bigger and larger Tier 1 tournaments. The IRT has been designed to give tournament directors access to hosting an IRT event of any size from a one day shootout to a Grand Slam event. This provides an opportunity for tournament directors, tournament sponsors, and tournament players to realize the excitement of an IRT professional event. Many of these tournament directors and their sponsors have used this excitement to grow the event each year and some have been able to grow small tournaments into full Tier 1 IRT events.
