Call it “Fabulous Friday” at the 2020 PGA Merchandise Show.
PGA Merchandise Show attendees will have a “golden” opportunity Friday to win $50,000 in the PGA Show Hole-in-One Contest, or one of three cash prizes totaling $500 in the PGA Show Putting Contest as part of the new PGA Show Passport Program on Friday only on the PGA Show floor.
The $50,000 Hole-in-One Contest begins with a qualifying round from 10 a.m. until noon on Friday at GOLFZON’s Booth (3127) on the PGA Show floor. The contest is limited to the first 140 PGA Show attendees to hit a shot on the GOLFZON simulator. The first 30 participants to land their ball within 10 feet of the pin will qualify for the final round from 1 p.m.-2 p.m. Each finalist will then get one shot at making a hole-in-one. The first participant to make an ace wins the $50,000 prize.
The $500 Putting Contest begins at 1 p.m. Friday in the Equipment Test Center Putting Green area. The contest will consist of two rounds and limited to the first 100 PGA Show attendees during the Round 1 window from 1 p.m.-1:30 p.m., with each participant given two chances to make one putt. The second round runs from 1:30 p.m.-2 p.m., with participants recording the best of five putts. First place pays $300, second $150 and third place $50. A sudden death putt-off will be held in the event two participants tie for first place.
Contest participants are reminded to get their Passports stamped after competing in the first round of each event. PGA Show attendees who get five Passport stamps on Friday can submit their validated Passports at any PGA Merchandise Show information booths to be eligible to win two tickets to the 2020 Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wisconsin. One lucky winner of Ryder Cup tickets will be notified Friday night.
