Are you confident enough in your game to bet $50,000 on it?

Saw an interesting ad a second ago during the Ryder Cup. Wynn Las Vegas (resort/casino) is putting on a golf event that anyone can enter and have a chance to win $2,000,000. That’s the largest purse in golf history.

It’s called The Ultimate Game at http://www.theultimategame.com.

All you have to do to compete is pony up the $50,000 entry fee and you can’t be someone who was fully exempt on the PGA Tour at any time.

So does anyone have an extra $50,000 they want to sponsor me with? I’ll give you a negotiable percentage of whatever I win. All I’d have to do to get my sponsor’s dough back is win matches on days one and two. Sounds easy enough.

By the way I’m a big Steve Wynn fan. I met him a few years ago. Any guy that can hire Tom Fazio and pay $56,000,000 to build his own private golf course (Shadow Creek) is cool in my book.

  1. Luke S. says:

    Wynn bought the “Big Stakes Matchplay” tournament that was held in Mesquite last year, and this is the tournament they’ve turned it into. Some Utah boys pulled in some good dough last year (it was two man best ball matches, $100,000/team entry). The field was very tough.

  2. $50,000 Nassau Anyone?

    I was browsing the Hooked on Golf Blog (always a quality read) and found some interesting information. If you’re a high roller or you like big time wagers, listen closely. "Saw an interesting ad a second ago during the Ryder Cup….
