Hooters golf tournament attracts international field

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  Golf's future stars continue to learn the Stonebridge golf course before the start of the Hooters Michelob Ultra Classic on Thursday.

The return of the Hooters Tour to Albany has brought back several local players like Josh Broadaway and former Darton College players Jason Flowers, Brent Witcher and Roy Steinberg.

The field will also include a number of top young players from across the United States and Europe.

The 168 player field also includes Chris Paisley from England.

Paisley has already won on the mini tour he plays in Europe and would love to get a win while he is in the States.

Chris Paisley said. "I like it. They are well run and good events. I had a five week gap in my schedule in Europe.  I was playing well and I kind of wanted to keep going."

The Hooters Michelob Ultra Classic runs through Sunday in Stonebridge.
