Major Putts launches $1million Shootout

BY | 13 Nov 2012

Have you ever dreamt of doing something special in golf you’ve never done before?

Until now amateur golfers could only imagine what it must feel like for a pro golfer to stand over a 6 foot putt to win.

Well, Major Putts is giving every day golfers the opportunity to stand in those shoes & putt for major prize money.

Any one can have a crack…but definitely no pro golfers.

The competition is simple with 3 putts each & 3 Rounds.

If you enter via a Satellite Event there are 4 Rounds.

The Satellites & Rounds 1 & 2 are held in Drummond Golf stores Australia wide.

Round 3 the Final is held at Moonee Valley Racecourse.


There are two ways to register at

One is through a Satellite Event which costs $55 per person where ten people compete & if you win that you win your way into Round 1.

The other way is to go straight into Round 1 which costs $550 either as an individual or as a team of up to four where you nominate one putter & share the cost & the prize money.

The format of the competition is that every one has three putts of 6,9 & 12 foot.

At the end of the three putts it goes to sudden death, if required, until there is a winner who goes on to the next stage.

You only have to beat 19 players to win first prize from Round 1.

If you miss out on advancing to the next stage of the competition you can buy back in to another Satellite or Round 1.

Cash Prize

There are four cash prizes with first prize $1million, second $500k, third $250k & fourth $100k

You can also benefit your Club as 6% of all tickets sold will go to the organisations the 32 finalists nominate.

Each organisation nominated will receive $16k if the competition is half subscribed & up to $32k if fully subscribed.


Major Putts recently held a celebrity showcase to launch the competition during the Manikato Stakes race meet at Moonee Valley.

Competitors included Ricky Ponting, Tom Hawkins, James O’Connor, Robby Foldvari & two jockeys.

It was a draw with Ricky Ponting & Tom Hawkins splitting the prize money of $10k, with half going to the Ponting Foundation & the other half going to the James Macready-Bryan Foundation.

So who will be the world’s first amateur golfer to walk away with $1 million & the title of Australia’s best pressure putter?

It could be you so go to & have a crack!
