Golf Magazine Skills Challenge
We had over 100 participants vying for 27 spots and the opportunity to get into the “big show” held later this year in Ocean Springs Maryland.
The winner of this event gets a cool $250,000.00! Now before you say, what didn’t I get into this thing each player MUST have a handicap of 8 or above to try their skills (luck) at winning this event.
We had the participants,
hit (1) drive within a grid
hit a 20 yard pitch shot - to a target
hit a fade, draw, and knock down - all to targets
a lob shot over a bunker to a target
a buried bunker lie to a target and,
a 40 yard bunker shot to a target
These players were evaluated on how they executed the shots, interviewed on camera by Golf Magazine staff - to see how they come across on TV, then told to check the website to see if they progress to the next round.
We had players to looked like “Punk Rockers”, gang members, tour players, and eveywhere in between!
Everyone had fun and now we’ll sit back and watch the rest of the show.
