The registration period is now open for the newest and possibly the largest non-pro tournament ever to hit the planet!
King of the Fairway (www.kingofthefairway.com) is a National knockout tournament with a progressive structure that is promising the "little guy" a shot at a real prize and a real title "King of the Fairway".
Non-pro means no officially certified USGA pro's.
That means the competition is open and targeted to novice, recreational, seasonal and amateur players. Amateurs wishing to maintain official USGA amateur certification may have to follow official USGA published amateur status rules but with a payout like this it is more than certain that many will be making good use of their off-season to practice and get ready to lay claim on the prize and title.
"It is designed for the up and coming golf enthusiast, the ones that know they have a good game and want to have a shot at a real title".
With registration now open for our 2013 series players are encouraged to register and start practicing their game now. Round 1 games start in September 2013 and with regional availability it's a convenient way to take a shot on the main stage.
With a registration fee of just $295* (includes all green fees and cart fees) It's a tournament that's open to all who qualify and want to play. This is a little more than 2 times the cost of a good game of golf in the states and promises players not only a shot at a great title and mega-prize but a chance to get in on the excitement and be part of this national event.
Top players in each round move one with the best ending up at the the final national in November 2013.
The tournament structure is in 3 stages:
The first stage is a set of regional play-off tournaments. Location of these tournaments will be based largely by the demographics of the registrants with tournaments being held at clubs as close to the registrant locations as possible.
The top 24% from each round 1 tournament will progress to this stage.
The regional championships: In this stage, player will compete for a spot in the National final.
The top 3* in each regional final (each round 2 tournament) will proceed to the national final.
In this final golf's next stars will compete for the big ticket: The trophy and the $1M payout.
All tournaments are played using conventional 18hole stroke play rules and are not handicap assisted.
