BOISE, Idaho — The Albertsons Boise Open has finished up day two which means that several golfers didn't make the cut and the rest of the field will compete over the next two days for a one million dollar purse and a chance to receive one of 25 PGA Tour cards for next year.

It's the 30th year of the Boise Open and this year the tournament raised a new record of $1.5 million for local charities, in the last 30 years this golf tournament has raised $25 million for charities.

The PGA Tour also recognizes the services of our veterans and first responders, not only do active duty or retired military, police and fire receive free admission to the open, they also have a place of their own to enjoy the action.

"having this outpost for the veterans is really specially," said U.S. Navy veteran Claude Murray. "I know how much I appreciate it and how much the other veterans do too."

One area that the Boise Open continues to improve is on the fan experience and this year features half priced beers for every birdie on hole 16, country music superstar Justin Moore will perform Saturday night and there is free food courtesy of Albertsons.

"Loving it, beautiful weather, good golf, it is excellent," said Coach Bowens who used to be the athletic director at Capital High School. "The improvements made in the bleachers is just phenomenal, I just can't believe the changes."
