Global Golf Sales – 2017 Program Details
Global Golf Sales and the South Florida PGA are excited to announce the highly successful Global Golf Sales Cup and summer long program promoting participation in Section events. The program will enter into its sixth year in 2017, furthering its mission to give all professionals an opportunity to enjoy Section events and compete on a level playing field at the season ending Global Golf Sales Cup. A few changes have been made to the program for 2017 and are noted in the information below:
- The program will again be based on participation and participation only. There will be eight (8) qualifying tournaments in which each player will receive participation points for playing. After the eight qualifying events, the 100 PGA Professionals who have accumulated the most participation points for the year will qualify for the 2017 Global Golf Sales Cup scheduled on Friday, August 25th at Addison Reserve Country Club. Each player in the field for the season ending event will be assigned a quota based on stroke average and committee input. NOTE: The tie-breaking policy used to determine the 100 PGA Professionals is outlined at the end of this page.
- The Global Golf Sales Cup will have a total purse of approximately $40,000 or more depending on the total number of 2017 Global Golf Sales Player’s Card registrations. The proceeds from each individual 2017 Global Golf Sales Player’s Card will go directly towards the purse at the Global Golf Sales Cup on August 25.
- In order to gain eligibility into the Global Golf Sales Cup, a professional must have purchased a Global Golf Sales Player’s Card at the beginning of the season for $105. By purchasing a Player’s Card, a professional may start accumulating participation points, be eligible for all closest-to-the-hole contests and grip giveaways. Anyone purchasing a card this year will receive a FREE set of grips from Golf Pride. NOTE: In order to receive Global Golf Sales Cup Points for the event being played the player must have purchased a Player’s Card or verbally committed to purchasing a Player’s Card prior to the end of the respective tournament to either Global Golf Sales or SFPGA staff.
- Global Golf Sales will be at 4-of-8 qualifying tournaments with their signature “Beverage Oasis”, Closest-to-the-Hole contest (1st place $150, 2nd place $100) and $1,000 Hole-In-One contest. In order to be eligible for any cash prizes, giveaways or contests, you must have purchased a 2017 Global Golf Sales Player’s Card.
