In just 27 short days from today we will be crowning our first Golden Tee World Champion in almost three years!
The 2022 Arcade World Champ will be crowned at The Westgate in Las Vegas in front of a crowd of hungry and fierce competitors on the grand stage of Pavilion 9-11!
With a $30,000 top prize on the line, stakes are very high for the top 96 competitors!
With at least five qualifying spots on the line, we will kick off the arcade World Championship event on that Friday, February 25 with two Closest-to-the-Pin contests. Old school rules will apply in this contest meaning in order to win and advance in the bracket, you must hit the closest shot between you and your opponent in nine holes.
Non-qualified players will compete against each other for the remaining open qualifying spots, while the qualified players can compete for cash and gift card prizes on the other side.
Talkin' about the Benjamins
The Prize Pools have been set for the Championship (Gold) Bracket and the Silver Bracket and it is stacked! $145,000 in prizes is on the line later this month for the Arcade World Championship!
Each of the 96 qualifiers will play a five course qualifier on Saturday, February 26. Their total score, great shot points and Golden Tee points on each course will be combined to get their total score. Courses will be randomly drawn from the seven Golden Tee 2021 courses.
The top 32 players on the leaderboard after the five course qualifier will be placed in Sunday's double elimination Championship Bracket for the top prize of $30,000!
The remaining 64 players will placed in the double elimination Silver bracket where they will compete for a top prize of $3,500. Thirty-two more players will get paid out in the Silver bracket compared to the 2019 World Championship!
