This will be a tournament to Honor Rich-Legendcrusher, who was a class act and one of the most generous players here on WGT.
I am in the process of figuring out how this tournament will be played. I'm not sure how many rounds it will be yet. I don't want it to be so long that players lose interest in it. I am very good at setting up Google Documents for this tournament and will use them to enter all information. My good friend JFHuber is very good at making Web Sites. We will use that Website and WGT Forums here so that you can get all the information you need.
April 25th There will be a document set up for player sign up and any donations you want to make. How many rounds and rules will be set then also. My thought right now is to use WGT Tournaments Weekly 18 hole Single Play for 4 rounds. After each player finishes a round, there will be a link to submit your score and then will be checked by that leaderboard by me or one of my helpers, if I have any.
Credits will be won by players for low score for that round, Hole in ones, Double Eagles, Eagles holed from a certain distance, hitting the flag stick from a certain distance, holing out from a bunker or rough, making a putt from over a certain distance and maybe more. Credits for these shots will be given only if the player saves a replay of that shot and then posts it in the respective Forum.The idea is to give as many players possible to win some credits.
Now comes the tricky part. In Honor of Rich, the credits won by players are to be donated to unknown players. Hopefully the unknown players are players that are new to the game and can't afford equipment and balls or just players that can't afford the newer equipment and balls. That choice is up to the player that wins the credits.
There is 2 ways the credits can be donated to the unknown players. First I could assign a treasurer to where all sponsored credits were given to the treasurer and then in the end each player that won credits would have the treasurer gift the player of their choice. This is a lot of trust to put in one person, so you can let me know in responses below.
The second way would be, that the sponsors pay the players that won credits, then those players will gift the unknown player of their choice. But to confirm that they donated those credits, they would have to take a screenshot that they gifted to an unknown player and then post it in a forum that will be set up for that purpose.
Any ideas or suggestions are welcome. Please do not be offended If it is not used. I am trying to keep this as simple as possible.
I could use 1 or 2 people that are very familiar with Google Docs and have Skype to help with checking and submitting score.
