If we’re honest, we were designing new tournament formats before the ink dried announcing our official status as a Worldwide Ryder Cup Supplier. Who can blame us? Marrying traditional golf tournament play with an eSports platform is exciting stuff!
We’re thrilled to announce the Ryder Cup Sim Series Powered by aboutGOLF!
Participants in this new indoor golf simulator tournament series will have the opportunity to compete on six past and future Ryder Cup venues across the United States and Europe: Hazeltine National, Le Golf National (L’Albatros), Gleneagles, The Ocean Course, Bethpage Black, and Whistling Straits.
The Ryder Cup 2020 Sim Series will combine stroke play and classic Ryder Cup venues with the most authentic, indoor tee-to-green experience. Fans of the Ryder Cup can step into any aboutGOLF simulator and see how their skills measure up to the legends.
The series consists of four stages, beginning a series of three Qualifiers followed by the traditional Match. After the Qualifier: Round 1, the top 50% of participants in the Qualifier: Round 1will then advance to the Qualifier: Round 2. The top 30 participants will then progress to the Qualifier: Round 3 where twenty-four players will be selected to compete in a Ryder Cup-style Match.
The winning team will be given access to a VIP experience at the 43rd Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits in Kohler, WI, competing in an aboutGOLF simulator at the event to determine the Ryder Cup Sim Series Champion. The Champion gets bragging rights and aboutGOLF's top-of-the-line simulator: the aG Curve.
Happy golfing from those of us at aboutGOLF!
