Who doesn’t love a good game of golf!?
And last year, at the Shaw Charity Classic, it was exceptionally good!
Fred Couples, one of the greatest names on the PGA Champions Tour, won the 2014 event in thrilling fashion after a career-best final round of 61 that included a chip-in eagle on the 54th hole.
I was literally watching while clutching my pearls!
(I’m pretty sure you can see a blurry me in the background)
The only thing that would have made that day more exciting would have been if I were to have met Fred Couples.
Well this year, it could happen!
From July 29th to August 5th (weekdays only) you can win your chance to meet Freddie and an amazing tournament prize pack by participating in the Shaw Chip ‘n Putt Challenge!
People of all ages and skill level are invited to come and put their short game to the test in a four-hole showdown that includes three holes of putting and one chipping contest for golfers of all levels.
The specially designed course inspired by the closing holes at Canyon Meadows Golf and Country Club will be located in the heart of downtown at 239 – 8th Avenue SW.
The competition will be broken into three separate components including qualification rounds, semi-finals, and the final showdown on the 18th green at Canyon Meadows with Fred Couples.
The top scorer of each day plus the next three runners-up will all advance to the semi-finals on August 5.
So you don’t even need to be the ‘best’ to move on!
I’ve been practicing my ‘chip shot’ with my niece & nephew and we’re planning to make it to the semi finals!
There will be lots of prizes to be won!
The eight semi-finalists will be awarded a prize pack including signed memorabilia and the choice of a Taylor Made putter or wedge. While the champion will also enjoy Sky Box passes on the 18th hole for the weekend, and an honourary observer spot with Fred Couples.
It’s a fun, free activity, so gather up the family and put your skills to the test!
See you there!
239 – 8th Avenue SW.
July 29, 30, 31 & August 4, 5
