GOLF CHANNEL OFFERS AWARD FOR SCORE THAT CAN'T BE ACHIEVED
Published November 17, 1994
The Golf Channel announced that it will award $1M to the first pro player on the PGA Tour, LPGA, Senior PGA or Nike Tour who scores a "59" or lower in regular tournament play. The bonus will award $500,000 to the player and $250,000 apiece to the tour's charity and the charity of tournament at which the feat was accomplished. Of the $500,000 that is designated for charity, $100,000 will be earmarked for programs introducing golf to the inner city. Only two pros have ever reached the sub 60 plateau in tournament play (Golf Channel).
