This is an A/B tier event being held in Missoula, MT on June 15-16. As always, we expect this year's ZTO to fill to capacity of 144 players very quickly. Junior players do not count towards the cap. Those players who do get in will once again be treated to phenomenal players' packs and amateur prizes, deep pro payouts, our legendary best-in-the-west raffle, and lot's of other extras in addition to an unrivaled player experience.

The Pro field will be capped at 72 players and will play 2 rounds on Saturday at Blue Mountain on the ZTO layout. NEW FOR THIS YEAR, the FPO, FP40, and MP50 will use a couple of short tee pads at this year's event. The Am field will be playing 2 rounds on Saturday at Sky Ranch on the ZTO layout. On Sunday, all players will play one round at Linda Vista Golf Course using tee times.

Due to the limited number of spots and high demand, pre-registration for the 2019 ZTO will happen in a few different stages. In addition to trying to draw the most competitive field we can, we would like to continue the trend of large Women's fields at the ZTO, too! There will also be a Sunday only Juniors division for which pre-registration is suggested, but not required. Junior players do not count towards the 144 person cap. We have had a tradition of very strong Juniors' fields and we would like that tradition to continue! Please spread the word to any Junior players out there.

IMPORTANT REGISTRATION DATES

March 20 - 8:00 PM MT time: Registration opens for all men rated 990 and over, all Silver, Gold, and Platinum Sponsors, and ALL WOMEN'S DIVISIONS.
