The FullTiltPoker.Net World Series of Golf (www.worldseriesofgolf.com) was held May 11-14, 2009 at the Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort (www.lvpaiutegolf.com). The Mirage Hotel & Casino (www.mirage.com) serves as the host hotel for the event and will be featured in WGN America’s coverage.

TheFulTtiltPoker.Net World Series of Golf is open to all amateur golfers age 21 and older. The proprietary method of play (www.worldseriesofgolf.com/overview.aspx) incorporates a $10,000 entry fee. Players ante at each tee box; after teeing off in a pre-determined order, they have the option to call or raise the bets of competitors in their paring, or fold the hole. Players who fold lose any bets they have committed to the pot and rejoin play on the next tee.

Players who remain in the action continue to bet prior to each subsequent shot, building the pot as they move from the tee to the green. The player who wins the hold – either by stroke count or by forcing his or her competitors to fold – wins the pot.

Players are eliminated when their $10,000 purse is exhausted or so depleted they cannot pay the ante on the next tee. Players who win their initial pairing advance to the tournament’s second round and recoup their $10,000 buy-in. Players who win their second-round pairing advance to the final round and are guaranteed a cash prize of at least $30,000. The winner of the event receives a cash prize of $300,000.

Nice Swing(s)

Because I clearly don’t have enough to do with the event being a few days away, I decided to have a little fun and post this image. It’s a bunch of pictures of WSG players from our April Get Acquainted event. I’m going to (someday) finish it the way I wanted to, but just not today.

Enjoy! Maybe you’ll even see your swing (good, bad or quite awful:)

Madisons Wish

Hello everyone. Todays blog is about a 2009 WSG player and his reason for competing in this years event. Keith Landberg decided to play in this years event for one main reason; to spread the word of SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy).

Spinal Muscular Atrophy is a motor neuron disease. The motor neurons affect the voluntary muscles that are used for activities such as crawling, walking, head and neck control, and swallowing. 1 in 6000 babies born are affected, and about 1 in 40 people are genetic carriers. SMA affects muscles throughout the body. Weakness in the legs is generally greater than in the arms. Sometimes feeding and swallowing can be affected. Involvement of respiratory muscles can lead to an increased tendency for pneumonia and other lung problems. Sensation and the ability to feel are not affected. Intellectual activity is normal and it is often observed that patients with SMA are unusually bright and sociable.

Keith’s financial advisor/caddie this year is Madison’s uncle. So they will be playing to promote a great cause, awareness of SMA.

Log on to www.madisonswish.com and help out if you can.

See  you all at the event this year and if you haven’t signed up yet, do it now before it’s too late!
