Major Series of Putting (MSOP) to Debut March 2017 in Las Vegas
18 Aug, 2016
Major Series of Putting (MSOP) will host the largest putting tournament in history in the heart of fabulous Las Vegas in March 2017. Multiple championship events with total prize money expected to exceed $10 million will be held between March 8 and March 29, 2017.
Participants from around the world will have the opportunity to test their skills - and nerves - as they compete over several days in high-stakes championship putting tournaments. With crowds of onlookers, live television broadcasts and the opportunity to win and take home a share of the millions of dollars in prize money, MSOP will showcase intensity and suspense unlike anything seen before in golf.
“MSOP is setting the stage for golfers from all walks of life to experience the intensity and excitement you’ll only reach when you sink that final putt for the win,” remarked Brad Faxon, a two-time member of the U.S. Ryder Cup Team with 21 professional victories serving as an advisor to MSOP. “Everyone has a shot at glory! All that is needed is a putter, a ball, skills and ice in the veins!”
MSOP will be held within a unique venue featuring a 20,000-square-foot, 18-hole putting course designed by world-leading Nicklaus Design. The venue surrounding the course will feature grandstand seating, live leaderboards, pro shop, sports bar, live entertainment and more.
MSOP is inviting PGA professionals at golf facilities throughout North America to host qualifying events through 2016 and early 2017 to send their best putters to represent their clubs at putting’s highest level of competition. Any participant will have the opportunity to earn a spot in one of the MSOP Championship events in Las Vegas. Select MSOP tournaments will also offer registration fees for those looking to gain direct entry into one of the events.
MSOP will offer a wide variety of putting tournaments. The 2017 MSOP schedule currently includes singles and team events in stroke play and match play with exclusive events for women, amateurs and professional golfers. Additional tournaments will be announced soon.
