ORLANDO, Fla – Conway resident Christina Lecuyer will compete on Golf Channel’s Shotmakers, an innovative new golf competition where precision shotmaking meets intense strategy in a fast-paced format, premiering Monday, April 9 at p.m. CT.
Shotmakers will take place at Topgolf Las Vegas and feature nine coed teams of two pairing up in head-to-head competitions that test precision, distance and control, all while facing intense pressure and strategic decision-making. The 18 competitors include a former PGA TOUR professional, mini-tour professional golfers, an Olympian, former collegiate athletes, a former World No. 1 World Long Drive competitor, a trick-shot artist, decorated military veterans, and champions from the Topgolf Tour.
A two-time All-American from the University of Central Arkansas, Lecuyer turned professional after graduation in 2007, playing on the various mini tours for several years and appearing on two seasons of Big Break, highlighted by being a part of the winning team on Big Break.
She has parlayed her experience competing on the professional circuit into a corporate host at charity golf events, where she has helped raise millions of dollars for various charities
Lecuyer’s teammate on Shotmakers (Team Seekers) is PGA teaching professional and Topgolf Tour veteran Matt Cousens.
The competition will utilize Toptracer by Topgolf, the leading technology used on PGA TOUR televised broadcasts that immediately shows players their ball’s flight, speed, distance and curve on screen, as well as the games made popular at the 41 Topgolf venues around the world.
Teams will compete for cash and prizes in each competition and will be eliminated until one team is left standing.
