Golf’s most exciting competition, the Ryder Cup, is upon us, and the Lord’s Taverners South Africa are looking to spice it up even more.
The tournament has been carried over from last year and will be held at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin, USA from the 24th – 26th September. Europe are the current holders.
LTSA is running a Ryder Cup competition which not only allows you a chance to win some money, but also donate to the organisation’s very worthy causes.
HOW IT WORKS
The Rules are as follows:
1) You must select 4 players with a minimum of one player from each team. So, your options are USA 1 Europe3, USA 2 Europe 2 or USA 3 Europe 1.
2) Foursomes/Fourballs. 1 point if your player is selected. 3 points if he wins his match. 1 point if the match is halved. 5 points if he wins by 5 holes or more e.g., 5 & 4
3) Singles. 5 points for a win. 2 points for a half. 5 points if he wins by 5 holes or more.
The cost is R300 of which R50 will be donated to the Lord’s Taverners South Africa and the balance goes to the prize fund. Entry fees to be paid no later than Friday 17th September to the following account:
Lord’s Taverners NPC, Nedbank 198765, ac no: 1119546052
Please use your name and Ryder Cup as the reference.
All entries must be received by WhatsApp (+ 27 83 4555) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) no later than Friday 17th September.
There will be prizes for the first 3 positions – split 1st 50%, 2nd 30% and 3rd 20%. So, if there are 50 entrants the total prize fund will be: R12500, split 1st R6250, 2nd R3750 and 3rd R2500.
