Orlando Sentinel

Sports Illustrated

As the heavy, thumping beat of “Funky Town” pounds across the air, Glenlivet single malt scotch drinks flow copiously in a nearby hospitality tent, and idle cornhole bags ready for flight await just a flop wedge away, on a front tee.

You’d never think you were standing on the 18th hole at an official LPGA event. The season-opening Diamond Resort Tournament of Champions touts itself as a bash that transcends your run-of-the-mill tournament, then raises a glass and lives up to billing.
