Golfsmith Championship Saturday, Presented by PING, Official Rules:
Closest-to-the-Pin: Players must register between 9am and 11am local time on 8/10/13 in a Golfsmith retail location. Only players who register during this time will be eligible to compete. Play begins at 11AM sharp and 2 player teams are called in order of registration. If team is not present when called, they will be called one final time once everyone present has played. Competitors should enter as a pair and compete as a team. However, singles will be paired up with other singles who have registered, and will be determined by the order in which they registered (i.e. first single registered will be paired with next single registered and so on). In the event of an odd number of entrants, a Golfsmith associate will team with odd-man-out. However, Golfsmith associate may not win prizes. Each player on a team gets 1 shot on pre-selected virtual golf hole at predetermined yardage. All players will shoot from the same yardage and hole. Both player results (final ball resting distance from virtual hole, as calculated by in-store analyzer) are added together for the final team score. If the green is missed, a result of 50 feet will be charged. No one shot may exceed a score of 50 feet from the hole, regardless of outcome. Each player is allowed one mulligan following their first shots. If a mulligan is selected, then the player MUST record the results from the second shot. The first attempt is null and void. Shots must be taken with G25 iron. Once all eligible teams have competed play, the event is over. The national winner will be calculated at, and contacted from, Golfsmith International HQ in the days following the competition. The overall winners will each win a PING G25 iron set. In the event of a tie score between 2 or more teams a random drawing between tied teams will determine the overall winner. No purchase necessary. Must be of legal age or with legal guardian to participate in contest.
Putting Contests: Participants must enter to compete before noon local time on 8/10/13, when contests will begin in all U.S. stores. Contest format varies by store. Varying rules will be specified before contest by Golfsmith store employees. Winner will receive a free PING putter selected and provided by Golfsmith and PING before the contest. No putter, cash or credit substitutions. 1 winner per store. No purchase necessary. Must be of legal age or with legal guardian to participate in contest.
Potential Grand Prize winner will be required to sign and return an Affidavit of Eligibility, Liability Release, and Publicity Release within three (3) calendar days of the initial notification attempt. If Sponsors are unable to reach the potential Grand Prize winner or the potential Grand Prize winner does not return the completed and signed forms within the three (3) calendar day period, the potential winner will be disqualified and will forfeit any and all claim to the Grand Prize. Sponsors may, in their sole discretion, award the Grand Prize to an alternate winner selected at random from the remaining eligible entries received.
