    Bring it to the Forum Contest: 2019 Grandaddy of em All with Callaway Golf

    If you have been on this forum for any period of time, you have seen mention of the Grandaddy. The greatest amateur event ever created. The 2019 edition is coming and we have the captains and 2 participants, but need a full team of 11 THPers. This is contest #3 and you could be joining them.



    It is an all expenses paid trip of a lifetime.

    What's Included

    Airfare
    Hotels
    Club Fitting at ECPC
    Full bag of clubs
    Tour Callaway
    Meet R&D
    Play Golf against the Zoo Crew (Callaway Marketing team)
    Play at one of the finest courses you will ever step foot on
    And so much more its ridiculous
    And you can be part of Team THP

    The Contest
    Bring it to the forum.

    Qualifying
    You must be a 2019 Albatross Club Member to enter. The club is open to anybody and helps benefit a wonderful charity. Details here.

    How to Enter
    The Grandaddy is not just a trip for 13 THPers, its a trip and journey for this entire community of people. It involves education, fitting, golf and the fun that is the backbone of what this place was built on. Each participant is tasked with sharing their experience before, during and after the event and we want to hear how you do that in your way. So in 20 words or less, tell the forum how you will share the Grandaddy with the world.

    Good luck everybody. This contest will remain open until the end of the week.
