W. E. Cole Cotton States Invitational Golf Tournament is a match play event held annually at Bayou DeSiard Country Club in Monroe, Louisiana. The 2015 tournament will be held from July 21-27, attracting many top collegiate and amateur players from around the country. The Cotton States has a long, rich history and tradition of high level competition. Over the years, several past contestants and champions have moved on to success as top amateurs and on the PGA Tour. A few past Champions of note were Bill Rodgers, Hal Sutton and David Toms, who not only won on the PGA tour and they won major championships. The 2014 Champion was Eamon Bradley from Edinburgh, Scotland playing for the University of Southeastern Louisiana and the runner up was Corbin Renner from Little Rock Arkansas, playing for Abeline Christian University.     Since last year's changes in the format were well received, again this year, all Cotton States competitors must have a 0.0 USGA certified handicap index or less to enter. The field will be open to the first 96 players accepted by the committee that meet that standard.  There will be a 36-hole stroke play qualifying with the low thirty-two qualifiers advancing to match play. The match play portion of the tournament will consist of five matches to be played over the next 3 days. The W. E. Cole Cotton States Invitational Golf Tournament is affiliated with the Scratch Players World Amateur Ranking system and the top finishers will receive world ranking points. The Bayou DeSiard Country Club Golf Course is a Perry Maxwell/Ron Prichert designed course with 419 Bermuda fairways and MiniVerde greens. It plays at 7234 yards from the Championship tees and is expected to be an exciting challenge for all competitors.
