If Phil Wins At Augusta- You Win!
By Kickntrue on 3/12/10
Golfsmith and Callaway are at it again, this time pulling out their biggest gun, Phil Mickelson. In the past, the contest has basically been that if a certain person wins a major- you get a free club. This time the small print is ... smaller.

Here's what you need to know.

1) If you buy any new Diablo Edge, FT Tour or FT-iZ driver at a Golfsmith retail store before April 7th, and if Phil wins at Augusta, your driver is FREE! As in the past- this is actually a no purchase necessary contest, so you don't really have to buy the driver a head of time, but it is IN STORE ONLY which is a bit of a deviation from the previous contests that let you enter with a mailer.

2) There will be a grand prize winner selected to take two additional friends along to play a round of golf with Mickelson. This is going to happen- doesn't matter if he wins at Augusta or not. You can sign up online and there is no charge. The "catch" is that you and your guests must have a CURRENT, VERIFIABLE USGA HANDICAP INDEX OF 24 OR LOWER. I guess oob's not going to cut it for you. :(

I don't live within 1k miles of a GolfSmith store- but I'm sure some of you do- so go out and sign yourself up to win a driver if Mickelson wins!

Full Details, Rules, ETC.

Can't do the free driver contest, but sure would be nice to win the round of golf!! That would definately be something to remember.

Sweet. Sign me up! Any plans on working with the USGA to make oob handicaps compliant? I'm guessing there would be a fee. Ironic, BadCaddy and I were just talking about this y'day.

A handicap of 24 or lower? WTF! That's discrimatory to us hackers. There isn't a bigger PHIL fan than me, but this really blows!

I agree...what's the damn deal with a 32 Handicap?!?! I wanna go play with big Phil out here in San Diego...c'mon Phil, have them change the rules!

If Phil loaned these 25+ h'cappers his square-groove wedges, perhaps they could GET down to a 24 or less. OTOH, time (even on the course) is money, and Mickelson's time is valuable. I guess they need to draw a line *someplace*...
