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.
Mediocre performance leaves the USA behind after day one of the Ryder Cup
