aG Tour Spring 2021 – Week 3 Event
Welcome to week three of aG Tour Spring 2021! Participants can still join for a chance to win a $250 USD gift card and bragging rights for navigating one of the toughest shots in golf history.
Unlike past competitions, the point of each Spring 2021 event is to hole it. If multiple people hole it, aboutGOLF will choose the winner by selecting the person who holed it first on their earliest attempt. If no one manages to hole it, the prize money will carry over to the following week.
Each week no one holes it during any of their attempts, the purse gets bigger for the next competition. There is no maximum should players miss multiple weeks. (So if everyone misses three weeks in a row, the next week’s purse is $750 USD).

The Week Three Challenge
For those of us who are old enough to remember the “War on the Shore,” Fred Couples’ bunker shot on the 15th hole is etched into our minds. For those of us old enough to wonder why I’m guessing that readers may not be old enough to remember this epic match, try not to let the fact that people born in 1991 are now 30-years-old depress you. For the youngsters out there, congratulations, and you're welcome to watch the following video at minute marker 7:26.
Couples was instrumental in ending a long dry stretch between U.S. Ryder Cup wins (the last being in 1983). In a game that ended with a single point differentiating the winner from the losers, every shot counted.
Will you be able to recreate a shot that has been called “miraculous”? Enter the event and find out!
Good luck to our players. Look for another exciting challenge next week!
