PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla.- The Champions Tour is proud to announce that based off its success during the previous three years, it will be expanding the fantasy- style Pick 'Em Challenge from five tournaments to 10. The Challenge will take place beginning at this week’s Regions Tradition (June 6-9) and concluding with the Montreal Championship (Sept. 6-8).
The Pick 'Em Challenge allows fans to compete for weekly prizes and the grand prize “Ultimate Clubhouse Experience” for two to the 2013 Charles Schwab Cup Championship at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco, Calif.
Fans can visit www.theultimateclubhouse.com to enter the contest.
Contest participants will choose a player at each Champions Tour event and be awarded points based on the chosen player's finish. The points awarded in the Pick 'Em Challenge will mirror the Charles Schwab Cup points system where points are awarded for top-10 finishes and ties based on each week's money distribution. The major championships that fall within the competition will award double points.
