Your Shot at $1 Million Begins November 1st Thanks To Wells Fargo and the Fiesta Bowl
From the Arizona Golf Authority Golf News Desk
PHOENIX, Arizona – It’s time to sharpen your 125-yard shot because the $1 Million Wells Fargo Fiesta Bowl Hole-in-One tee opens November 1st at the Arizona Biltmore Golf Club.
2012 marks the 28th anniversary of this exhilarating opportunity for players of every skill level. Most avid players from the Phoenix-metro area have teed a few up at this event down through the years, and for good reason, too. In 2002, Phoenix resident Ray Mills qualified for the final day, holed an ace and took home the $1 million check.
This year’s dates are Thursday, November 1 through Sunday, November 11 and everything else is still the same. The Arizona Biltmore Golf Club hosts the event. It’s a dollar per ball, or $10 buys you a bag with 11 balls. The tee is open 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. MST each day; 9 a.m. – noon on pre-finals Sunday the 11th.
Each day, the three top qualifiers and anyone who makes a hole-in-one advance to the finals at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday. During the finals, the players will find one $1 million cup and two additional $50,000 cups cut in the green.
In the event no one claims the cash prizes with a hole-in-one during the finals, no worries; the top three shots will be awarded grand prizes. And that’s in addition to the three daily prizes awarded to the top three daily qualifiers which include PING irons, golf bags, complimentary foursomes of golf at area courses and gift certificates for fine dining at local restaurants.
With the rye grass ‘overseed’ season upon us, now is the perfect time to grab your shag bag and get on the range to hone your 125-yard move. Is your ball flight left-to-right, straight, right-to-left? – doesn’t much matter. Just check out the pin sheet below and match your shot to the day it will best fit the cup’s location.
