TUESDAY SHOOTOUT AT CABO DEL SOL
The TUESDAY SHOOTOUT AT CABO DEL SOL is a new feature of the adidas Golf Invitational, and open to all teams arriving early (prior to November 6th). This event will be completed prior to the Opening Party at the Grand Fiesta Americana Los Cabos and features a $7,500.00 professional purse. A great kick-off to the week!
Entry is open to all teams arriving early, either Sunday, November 4th or Monday, November 5th, and staying at the Grand Fiesta Americana Los Cabos. Teams must also play a practice round on Tuesday, November 6th at Cabo del Sol.
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. If there is a ‘tie’ after the 2nd qualifying hole there will be a ‘shoot-off’. The event official in the group will determine the position for the ‘shoot-off’ and the professional on each qualifying team will hit from this position. The ball ‘closest to the pin’ will determine the winner of the qualifying.
The six qualifying teams will meet on the 1st tee of the Ocean Course to compete in the final competition. The same format will be used, with professionals teeing off on hole #1 (from their ‘age related’ tee), and the amateur will tee off on hole #9 of the Ocean Course (from staggered tees based on handicap). Winners will also be determined by a ‘shoot-off’ in the case of a tie for 1st, 2nd and/or 3rd place, with professionals hitting the required shot.
Professionals will receive prize money if they reach the final competition. 1st place – $3000.00, 2nd place – $2000.00, 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 (45% for 1st, 25% for 2nd,15% for 3rd, and 5% for 4th – 6th place – $500.00 each.
