That is strange... I could not find the Nitro LD history on Google either.  However, Nitro was a golf ball, touted for distance and I know they hosted LD contests becasue I went to one in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area.  Maybe someone else can fill in some history here.  Maybe it was just a local Nitro rep who hosted the event.  My guess is the time frame was about the mid or late 1980s.  It was about the time Adams golf (and Barney Adams) located to the Richardson area (north Dallas.)  I remember that because Barney called me to to hit some new club designs and ideas he had.  Barney was very innovative.   I also remember we had our swing speed measured at the Nitro event and that was the first time I had had it done as accurately as the equipment there could do it.  Art Sellinger might not remember me but later on we met in Houston and I did hit some balls at one of his ranges.  He was a big guy.
