NEW YORK, April 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- For the first time in the history of golf, a nationwide tournament sets sail to provide the average Joe a larger than average chance at winning a much more than average prize.
With the creation of the first ever non-professional, nationwide high-stakes tournament, King of the Fairway (www.KingoftheFairway.com) is hitting the USA and captivating the attention of the nation's golfers. Targeted specifically at the everyday golfer, it's an event where a neighborhood hero can take a place on the main stage and compete for a life changing $1M prize.
Registrants from across the nation will enter a 3 round knockout tournament, Round 1 played in September, Round 2 in October and the Round 3 finale in November. A progressive "winner plays on" format, the tournament is designed to allow a significant percentage of players to play into Round 2; increasing their chance to make it into the final and play for the $1,000,000.
Creating a conduit for emerging golfers and seasoned veterans alike:
"Following 2012 market research we gained significant positive reinforcement from players and affiliates nationwide that this type of rapid pace, grand scale tournament would be exciting for the players and the industry as a whole. There is way too much talent on the sidelines today." – stated Julian Searle, President of ULP.
Despite an emergence of younger players with a more modern style and an evolving ecosphere of products that have helped the game progress from the "ages," the golf industry has been in decline for several years. As with any industry, particularly in sports, continued innovation is a fundamental requirement needed to captivate the next generation and ensure positive growth in the segment.
With a significant number of tournament locations available in major golf markets across the USA, King of the Fairway welcomes the lion share of the market to join in the action.
King of the Fairway is a subsidiary of United Logic Productions, who specialize in bringing innovative events to market.
