SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- The 2014 Four Winds Invitational held at Blackthron Golf Club in South Bend is part of the Symetra Tour, which feeds in to the LPGA.

It runs all weekend and general admission tickets are still available.

Managers at the course say it's a great way to get families involved in the sport.

"A great way to introduce your children to golf and get them interested in golf,” said Tim Firestone, general manager, Blackthorn. “Golf is a great sport, sport of a lifetime. The players are very accessible, very friendly. It is really neat to just come out and experience professional golf here in South Bend. It doesn't happen very often. It hadn't happened in 50 years until we started this event."

Some former Penn High School and Notre Dame golfers were on the course this afternoon.
