Amateur golfers are getting ready to experience the pressure of professional golf by competing in Paradise Palms 2013 XXXX Gold Super Skins this weekend, 19-20 January.
Players from around the country have been invited to attend the two-day event on the award-winning course.
Course pro, Kyle Francis said “the amount of interest and number of early registrations are positive signs for places to fill completely before the end of the week.”
Kyle said “the qualifying round will be held on Saturday, with all qualifiers in with a chance of sharing the prize pool.”
The 10 qualifiers, plus two pre-qualifiers will contest the Shootout and Skins on Sunday, teeing off together in a six-hole shootout, with players knocked out throughout the round.
The final four will play ‘skins’ for the final 12 holes with a prize pool available at each hole.
Players who missed the original cut will compete in a 36-hole tournament for the XXXX Gold trophy.
There will also be daily prizes and trophies for the 36-hole event in three grades.
Two pre-qualifying events have taken place over the past fortnight with Dean McCarthy and Tomo Asai securing their place in Sunday’s Shootout and Skins event.
