Rory McIlroy to Play in Inferno Cup Event! No, Really . . . Sort of . . .

roryThe Inferno Cup joins forces with the PGA Tour (without the PGA’s knowledge of course) to play in the “PGA Gainey Challenge” event Saturday and Sunday August 9th-10th. Normally, Saturday morning play is Inferno Cup eligible. This time, Saturday and Sunday will qualify for the points.

Pick your partner and have fun with this great event. You can pick a fellow Inferno Cup player or a non-Cup player. You can even bring a guest and still participate in the event AND earn your Inferno Cup points.

Here’s how it works . . .

Friday, August 8th – 6:30 p.m. – SELECTION PARTY

The teams meet in the Member’s Grill where they select two players from those that have made the cut in the PGA Championship. They are now on your team for the next two days. The combined scores of the four of you determine your finish in the event.

Saturday, August 9th – 7:30 a.m. – SHOTGUN START

Teams tee it up in a best-ball format. The event will be followed by a buffet lunch and the scoring party.

Sunday, August 10th – 7:30 a.m. – SHOTGUN START

The final round will be played using a two-man scramble format. These finishes are always fun and exciting. Another magnificent buffet lunch and scoring party will follow. My partner and I will graciously accept the first place awards and give a tip of our hats to the second place and following teams.

Let’s support the club in this one and show them we appreciate all they do for us. Email InfernoCup@GaineyGolf.org if you’re looking for a partner. I’m playing, but second place will still be available.

Here’s a link to the flyer put out by the club.
