Pensacola Open

 

The Pensacola Open is a former PGA Tour golf tournament, played in Florida from the 1950s into the 1980s. The tournament has a couple interesting historical notes: When Lee Elder won the 1974 event, he qualified for the following year's Masters, where he became the first black golfer to play that tournament; and Curtis Strange's first pro win happened here.

First played: 1956

Last played: 1988

Also known as: Monsanto Open
