  1. Game Description.

    The "Play With Parker" 18-Hole Open is an eighteen-hole stroke play contest. There are two Tiers of competition as follows: Amateur and Hack (each a "Tier"). Entrant's Tier is determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion, which may be based in whole or in part on entrant's performance and scoring in previous World Golf Tour game play on Sponsor's website, if any. An entrant may only enter into one Tier of competition during the Contest Period. The entrants in each Tier will be given eighteen holes throughout the golf course, and are challenged to get the ball into the cup for each hole in the fewest strokes. The number of stokes taken to get the ball into each cup, plus any penalties, will be recorded for each entrant. When entrant completes all eighteen designated holes, the number of strokes plus penalties are totaled and comprise the entrant's final score. Entrants may play the Game as many times as they wish during the Contest Period, but only the entrant's lowest final score received during the Contest Period will be recorded as Entrant's entry in the Contest. The lowest scoring entrant in each Tier will be a potential winner (subject to the provision below in the event of a tie between two or more entrants, and subject to meeting eligibility and all other requirements in these Official Rules).

    In the event of a tie, the better scoring entrant between or among the tied entrants will be the entrant with the lowest combined score for the final six (6) holes of the Game. If any ties remain, the better scoring entrant between or among the remaining tied entrants will be the entrant with the lowest combined score for the final three (3) holes for such Game. If any ties remain, the better scoring entrant between or among the remaining tied entrants will be the entrant with the lowest score for the 18th hole in such Game, and any remaining ties will be determined by identifying the lowest scoring entrant for each individual game hole, in sequence from 17th through to 1st, as is necessary to determine a winner and, if any ties remain at that point, the earlier-submitted entry between or among the tied entries will be deemed the better scoring entry.

  2. Prize.

    There are six (6) prizes to be awarded, three per Tier. The First Prize in both Tiers is a trip to TPC Scottsdale Arizona to play a round of golf with Parker McLachlin on September 15, 2009.
