$100,000 crowd prize at Australian PGA
17 Oct 2013
SOME big-dollar spice has been added to the Australian PGA Championship at RACV Royal Pines next month – not for the professionals playing in the tournament but for the crowd.
Everyone attending the event as a spectator will be able to put their hand up for a chance to win $100,000.
They will have to register for a hole-in-one challenge by 11am on the final day of the tournament, Sunday November 10.
One-hundred names will then be drawn and those spectators will be able to vie for the $100,000 by attempting to hole a ball with one shot.
“It will be a one-shot chance at glory,” says RACV Royal Pines Resort general manager John Morris.
“We expect the shootout to prove an enormous attraction and we’re sure a lot of those of people in the PGA crowd will be there to cheer the lucky participants on.”
To win the $100,000, contestants will have to hit the ball 160 metres into a hole on a specially-built green on the resort’s driving range.
The contest will be held after all players have teed off in the final round of the PGA.
