Champions Tour launches the 2011 Majors Challenge
The Majors Challenge, part of the Tour’s 2011 “Come to Play” social media initiative, will allow fans to compete for prizes by answering a series of situational questions that will occur during this year’s Champions Tour major championships.
The first leg of the Majors Challenge will take place this week during the year’s first Champions Tour major, the Regions Tradition, being played at Shoal Creek Golf Club.
Prior to each major, participants will answer 18 questions broken down into three categories (easy, medium, hard) related to that particular tournament. Participants will need to answer the questions prior to the first official tee shot of each major, and points will be awarded based off correct answers and question category.
The winner of each Majors Challenge will be receiving a Champions Tour “Come to Play” Nike Golf Prize Pack that includes a dozen Nike ONE Vapor balls, a Nike golf bag, a Nike duffle bag and a pair of Nike golf shoes.
Besides this week’s Regions Tradition, the other legs of the Majors Challenge will be the Senior PGA Championship (Valhalla Golf Club), Senior Open Championship (Walton Heath Golf Club; London), U.S. Senior Open Championship (Inverness Club) and the Constellation Energy Senior Players Championship (Westchester Country Club).
