ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) -- Last month, the Senior PGA Championship was in Rochester and with it came a very prim and proper golf atmosphere.

Next month, a different kind of golf championship comes to Rochester that is anything but.

Ryan Steenberg is one of the best long drive golf competitors in the world and next month the tour is coming to Rochester. 

On Tuesday, he was practicing at Home Team Sports Park, the site of July's ROC City Rumble to get ready for the main event. 

"We're the home run derby of golf mixed in with a little WWF, WWE and NASCAR, so it's family fun, it's party, there's rock music going and there's big monstrous guys hitting golf balls, it's adrenaline driven sport and it's all about entertainment," said Steenberg.

The entire event starts Saturday July 20 at Home Team Sports Park with qualifying rounds leading up to the championship on Wednesday July 24.
