Rocky Mountain Open & Pro-Am

Grand Junction, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT) A beautiful ending to summer at the Tiara Rado Golf Course. It is the 81st Rocky Mountain Open. A 54-hole event over the weekend with 90 pros, over 75 amateurs, and a $15,000 dollar grand prize. It is the longest-running pro-golf tournament West of the Mississippi River.

For some, the RMO is a tournament to get experience and practice and has helped get to the PGA tour like Basalt native, Jim Knous. For others, their hard work is about the community, making a positive impact and having fun.

"We're very excited about where the RMO is going. Bringing people in here to play and bringing attention to the community at the same time, a high level of play," says RMO Golf Inc. President, Doug Simmons. "Our focus at the current time is to support athletics and athletic scholarships at CMU."
