Major Format Change for The 2020 adidas Golf Invitational

The tournament format has changed this year.  This change has been made after much consultation with sponsors, pros, and amateur participants.  The purpose for moving to this new format is to present a more favorable entry program and pricing for our amateur participants.  By instituting this new format, amateur participants are now able to participate this year at a rate we haven’t featured in a dozen years.  In order to do this, the tournament format is now similar to many of the major Pro-Am events around the world:

  • 2020 adidas Golf Invitational team format:  one invited professional and FOUR amateur partners.  (Previously the format has been one invited professional and THREE amateur partners).
  • Team competition remains ‘Best Ball Gross PLUS Best Ball Net’ for the entire team.
  • The amateur entry price for 2020 is $3,995.00.  (The 2019 entry price was $5,145.00).

We are excited about this new direction of the tournament, the tournament format and are more than pleased to be able to make a change that saves our valued amateur participants considerable money without diminishing a single aspect of this special event.  As an example, an amateur golfer can participate this year AND bring a non-golfing guest to enjoy the festivities at a similar price that was paid by an amateur golfer ‘without a non-golfing guest’ in 2019. 

This year marks the 3rd year with adidas Golf as the Title Sponsor of this event which started in 1992.  With literally thousands of past participants, incredible sponsors, dedicated volunteers, and the support of the entire Puerto Vallarta community, the adidas Golf Invitational is truly an iconic event with a tradition of excellence that resonates into what Jim Flick, for whom the tournament trophy is dedicated, always referred to as:  “The Best Week of the Year”!

We look forward to seeing you in Puerto Vallarta this coming November.  Feel free to contact Championhsip Golf with questions at

The 2019 adidas Golf Invitational Highlights

The 2019 adidas Golf Invitational concluded on Saturday, November 17th under sunny skies at the Vista Vallarta Golf Club in beautiful Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.  Cole Madey made his tournament debut a memorable one, tying the tournament record with a score of 266 (24 under par), he beat out Shawn McCarty by four shots, and former champion Chris Moody by five.  Even with McCarty with nine holes to play, Cole put the pedal to the metal, birdying 10 and 11 and never looking back.

Travis Johns from Medinah, Illinois has been playing with his team in this event for 10 years.  He finally broke through with his team for victory in the team competition.  Playing with his ‘main men’ Juan and Steven Gaytan, they were joined by first-timer Jesus Lopez which proved to be a winning formula.  They came from behind the final round to oust the formidable team of past champion Chris Moody, Dan Horner, Bob Shay and Shane Brady.  We came close to the first ever ‘team champion playoff’ in tournament history.  Maybe next year?

Our flight champions were also crowned the final night, and every flight featured several teams in the hunt right to the end.  Teams captained by Mark Fuller, Chris Moody, Jay Carballo, and Mike Malaska took home the awards.  Chris Moody added to his fine week with a victory, along side his partner Dan Horner, in the growingly popular HONMA Shootout.

During the final night’s presentation, Ryan Fitzpatrick and his team got the surprise of the evening.  They were drawn out as the recipients of the Links Golf St. Andrews 5-Star golfing holiday to St. Andrews, Scotland.  It was the 16th straight year that a team has been awarded this incredible trip compliments of our friends at Links Golf.

It was a wonderful and memorable week again.  adidas Golf once again took the title sponsorship role in hand and pulled out all the stops to make it so.  Their staff has been invaluable to the tournament's success, and their passion for this event is always present.  Thank you to HONMA Golf  who presented the HONMA Shootout as a new cornerstone of the event, and to E-Z UP who gave us the E-Z UP Village at the range on the Vista Vallarta Golf Club.

There are countless people to thank, and we appreciate every one of you.  We look forward to the 2020 adidas Golf Invitational – the next addition of this special event – November 10 -15, 2020 in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

For all of you who joined us this year, and all of you who have joined us in the past, and will join us in the future, thanks for making this ‘The Best Week of the Year'.
