How do you pronounce "Tournament"?

It's that time of year. Listening to the radio this morning, and the host was pronouncing it one way while the guest talking head was pronouncing it completely opposite.

How do you say it?

TORN-a-ment?

TURN-a-ment?

I say turn, but for some reason it doesn't bother me too much when someone says torn.
