Eight golf content creators and eight professionals took part in a unique qualifying event for a PGA Tour tournament called 'The Q at Myrtle Beach' on March 4, with the result remaining a total secret - until today.

The 18-hole shootout at TPC Myrtle Beach pitted notable names such as Dan Rapaport, Grant Horvat, and George Bryan against eight pros with history on either the PGA Tour, Korn Ferry Tour, or college circuit - two of whom are Korn Ferry Tour winner Matt Atkins and former LIV Golf player Turk Pettit.

The field of 16 players – many with ties to the state of South Carolina – all held a USGA handicap of 0.0 or better at the time of recording, a requirement on the PGA Tour for sponsor exemptions.

It was every man for himself with only one legitimate unrestricted sponsor exemption spot in next month's inaugural Myrtle Beach Classic (May 6-12) that runs concurrently with the Wells Fargo Championship - a Signature Event.

And the result, which has been kept completely under wraps until now, is going to be released at 1pm ET on Tuesday, April 23. At that point, the full 90-minute video showing what happened will be released on Play Golf Myrtle Beach’s YouTube. Each of the content creators will also release a video of their own experiences on their respective pages.

The eight golf content creators include: George Bryan, Peter Finch, Grant Horvat, Luke Kwon, Micah Morris, Dan Rapaport, Nick Stubbe (a.k.a Fat Perez) and either Mason Nut or Cole Lantz from Bustajack (who will compete in a playoff match to determine who earns the final spot). 

Meanwhile, The eight pros competing will be: Matt Atkins, Jay Card III, Morgan Deneen, Turk Pettit, Scott Stevens, Tyler Watts, and Jamie Wilson.

Myrtle Beach Classic tournament officials confirmed that the final spot for its event went to a PGA professional from the area who earned their spot at a local qualifier on February 19. The Myrtle Beach Classic will feature a $3.9 million purse and offer 300 FedEx Cup points to the winner.
