Freak Friday Top Qualifiers

November – December, 4 Spots

Last year, the Daily Contest served as the sole way to qualify. This year, starting in Late November, it will lock up four different spots in a unique way.

New to Golden Tee 2017, Freaky Fridays are special 18-hole events that will take place on the Daily Contest every Friday. For four consecutive Fridays, the winners of these contests will lock up a spot in the Golden Tee World Championship.

The four contests that will ultimately secure spots will take place on November 25, December 2, December 9 and December 16. Course designer Jim Zielinski will create four Championship Courses, selecting holes from all 60 courses in the history of LIVE.

Will be they hard? Easy? Whatever they will be, they will ultimately help us lock up four players in the World Championship field.

Money $hot Top Qualifiers

2 Spots

The final two vacancies for the Golden Tee World Championship will be rewarded to the winners of two separate Money $hot contests—two “Golden Tickets” events. These contests will take place on March 24 and March 31, 2017.

One shot. That’s all it takes. If you can hit one brilliant iron or fairway closest to the pin on these two days, you can secure your spot for lovely Las Vegas.

Live Events Top Qualifiers

November – December, 2 Spots

The winners of Club Lucky’s Tournament of Champions and Power Events’ Player of the Year Tournaments will each be awarded a spot in this year’s Worlds.

The TOC will take place in October (and thus will be the first spot handed out). The PEGT Tour Player of the Year Event will take place in December.

In the event that a player wins both contests or has already secured a berth by winning a Freaky Friday, the second-place finisher for the Player of the Year Tournament will secure the bid.

Home Edition Top Qualifiers

January – March, 3 Spots

Surprise! Not only will Golden Tee Home Edition owners be included in this year’s Worlds, but we are also creating World Rankings that will be specific to Golden Tee Home Edition locations.

For those new to World Rankings, it takes the top score on all five current courses in a given month, averages them together and takes the total Great Shot Points in those games to rank players.

The top Golden Tee Home Edition World Rankings finishers during January, February and March will each be rewarded a spot in Vegas. In the instance that a player wins first more than one month, the No. 2 player will be selected.

Please note: In order to qualify for the Worlds on a Golden Tee Home Edition, a player must be the owner of the game.

Glory Play Top Qualifiers

January 15 – March 15, 3 Spots

Best 50-Game Average Score

Do you play Golden Tee in a state that doesn’t allow Prize Play—specifically Alaska, Louisiana, New Jersey or South Dakota?

If so, you too can qualify for the Vegas event. A separate online contest for players from these states will take place with the exact same 10-game average, 50-game total format mentioned above during the exact same time period.

The top three finishers during this time will earn spots in the Golden Tee World Championship.

Please note: all qualifiers must be a resident of the state that they qualified in.

Prize Play Top Qualifiers

January 15 – March 15, 50 Spots

Best 50-Game Average Score

A classic, proven form of qualifying returns to this year’s worlds with a slight twist. Between January 15 and March 15, all Golden Tee players will be able to qualify by playing LIVE Prize Play.

In order to have a chance at qualifying, each player must finish 10 Prize Play games on all five Golden Tee 2017 courses—for a total of 50 games. In these two months, players are allowed and encouraged to play as many games as they please.

But it's not just about playing 50 games. It's your best 50 games—or your best 10 scores from each course. The goal will be to better your best 10 scores on each course through qualifying.

Once March 16 arrives, this 50-game average will be final. Combined Great Shot Points in these games that are counted will serve as the tiebreaker. The 50 players with the best average score and most Great Shot Points are in.

All states that allow Prize Play along with Canada will be included in this contest: 50 of the 64 players who compete in the Worlds will come from this event.
