The WSG Championship
WSG Championship Finals is a three-day golf competition unlike any traditional golf tournament. It’s a hole-by-hole, hit and bet, no limit amateur prize tournament played on a professional 18-hole golf course. Each hole is played in a manner similar to a hand of Texas hold ’em, where playing groups of three to six competitors will test their skills of golf against their poker strategy.
As members are eliminated strategies may change, but the desire to win the prize only intensifies.
Each member is permitted to bring a financial advisor/caddy on course with him/her. Members start at the tee with a set purse. A percentage of the purse is an automatic ante that doubles every three holes. This is a Texas hold ‘em no limit modified match play. Once members have hit their tee shots, they wager against other members in their group as to who will win the hole. If a member does not like their shot, doesn’t like the bet, or is just protecting their purse, they may fold their hand, pick up their ball and move on to the next tee, losing what they have committed to the pot.
When a member can no longer match the ante on the upcoming tee box, they are eliminated from the match.
The objective is simple – take all the money out of the other members’ purses. Members will play against those with similar skills within their group. These events will be televised nationally and internationally. If you make it to the WSG Championship tournament, you’ll have the chance at a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play with some of the best golf and poker players in the world.
