TUESDAY SHOOTOUT AT VISTA VALLARTA
The TUESDAY SHOOTOUT AT VISTA VALLARTA is designed as a ‘bonus' welcome event. This is a way for teams to arrive a day or two prior to the tournament, get acclimated, relax and at the same time enjoy a fun-filled afternoon at Vista Vallarta. Plus — there’s an additional $7500.00 professional purse, a team buy-in, and prizes for the amateurs. All you have to do is play a practice round on Tuesday, and your entry fee is complimentary! A great kick-off to the week!
Entry is open to all teams arriving early, either Sunday, November 8th or Monday, November 9th, and staying at the Marriott Casa Puerto Vallarta Resort & Spa. Event begins at 2:00pm following your team's practice round at 8am, shotgun start.
This is a 2 person Pro-Am competition. Professional chooses one amateur teammate as his/her partner. Format is alternate-shot.
The field will be divided into six flight divisions based on the handicap of the amateur participant. Each division will play a 2-hole ‘qualifier’. The winning team in each ‘qualifier’ will proceed to the finals. Qualifying events will be held on designated holes to be determined. Each qualifying match will be accompanied by a tournament official and travelling ‘beer and soft drink cart’.
The professional will tee off on the 1st hole of the qualifying match. Professionals play from their tournament tee (based on age of the professional). Team will alternate shots until the 1st hole is completed. The amateur participant will tee off on the 2nd hole of the qualifying match. Amateur tees will be staggered on this hole, based on the handicap of the amateur. Play will all be at scratch (no strokes deducted from total score). Following completion of the 2nd qualifying hole, the winners will be determined.
The six qualifying teams will meet on the 17th tee of the Weiskopf Course to compete in the final competition. The same format will be used, with the #18 hole being the final hole played.
Professionals will receive prize money if they reach the final competition. 1st place – $3,000.00, 2nd place – $2,000.00, 3rd place – $1,000.00, 4th – 6th place – $500.00 each.
The only entry fee for the Shootout is a $100.00 team buy-in, which will be 100% paid out to the top 6 teams (regardless if they were the amateur ‘chosen’ to represent the team) will be awarded prizes, and share in the ‘team buy-in’ payout.
