SPECTATORS WELCOME: Friends, spouses and non-competing spectators are welcome to attend! Food, craft beer and cocktails will available throughout the day at Proximity. Saturday’s telecast of The Masters Tournament will be shown live on the big-screen TVs throughout the Lounge as the Pins & Skins is played.
Amateur players will compete in a big skins game from the tournament tees on the TPC Sawgrass course presented by Full Swing Golf. Play will be conducted in two separate waves, but scored as one single tournament. The virtual conditions, tee and hole locations, etc. will use the same settings on each simulator.
Players who make birdie or better will have those scores posted to a large scoreboard at Proximity, and the skins pot will be divided equally among all skins winners at the end of the day (or least tied holes if there are no outright skins). A score of par or higher will not win a skin, allowing players to pick up.
The Full Swing virtual golf course software uses a 6-foot “gimme” radius: any shot or putt that finishes within a 6-foot circle of the hole makes the next shot “good”. Thus, players have two ways to make birdie or eagle: hit a shot that finishes within 6 feet of the hole, or hole a putt or chip hit into the screen.
Pin shots will be recorded to the scoreboard for each par-3 hole during each round, and the closest-to-the-pin winner on each of those par-3 holes at the end of the day will win 1/4th of the pin shot prize pot.
On two par-5 holes, a long drive contest will be recorded. Each of those long drive winners will receive a $50 gift cart for future play at Proximity.
