The player count is ascending and so is the excitement for the 30th annual Golf.com World Amateur Handicap Championship.
Nearly 3,100 players from across the globe have registered to play in this year’s event, and the release of a partial list of random drawing prizes will do little to temper excitement about the tournament, which will be played August 26-30.
The list of giveaways, which doesn’t include a Grand Prize trip that has yet to be unveiled, includes a $3,000 indoor golf simulator and a pair of $1,000 PGA Tour Superstore shopping sprees, among many other items.
The random drawing prizes at World Am aren’t a close your eyes and pray proposition. One in every 25 tournament participants will win a random drawing prize.
With that in mind here is the bounty that will be given away at this year’s tournament:
— SkyCaddie GPS watches will be distributed to two entire flights (approximately 100 watches). One winner will be selected on Tuesday evening at the 19th Hole, and all players on the winner’s course Wednesday morning will receive the prize.
