NO PLEDGE, PURCHASE OR DONATION IS REQUIRED to participate in the Birdies for Charity Contest or to become eligible to receive a prize. A pledge will not increase a participant's likelihood of winning a prize.
The Birdies for Charity Contest is open to all participants who are 18 years of age or older. The contest is void where prohibited or restricted by law. A participant need not be present to win.
Only one (1) Grand Prize will be awarded. The Grand Prize will be awarded to the person who guesses exactly the number of birdies made during the 2022 Cologuard Classic. The guess may be any number. In case of ties, the Grand Prize winner will be chosen by random drawing by Tournament Officials from among those who correctly guess the exact number of birdies made. If no one guesses the exact number of birdies made, then the Grand Prize winner will be the person whose guess (either above or below the exact number of birdies made) is the closest to the actual number of birdies made during the Tournament.
The exact number of birdies made during the Tournament will include all birdies made by the PGA TOUR Champions professionals during Wednesday and Thursday Pro-Am events as well as total birdies made during the Friday, Saturday & Sunday Professional Competition.
Should PGA TOUR Champions or Tournament Officials cancel one or more rounds of Tournament play because of weather or other conditions, then the following number of Birdies may be added, at the discretion of tournament officials, to the regular Birdies total to determine the total number of Birdies made during the Cologuard Classic
Wednesday/Pro-Am - 100
Thursday/Pro-Am - 100
Friday/First Round - 200
Saturday/Second Round - 200
Sunday/Final Round - 200
The total so determined shall be the "Total Number of Birdies" made during the Cologuard Classic for all purposes, specifically including the "Guess the Birdies Contest" and the awarding of the Grand Prize.
In the event of any disruption to Cologuard Classic tournament play, contest, prizes and Cologuard Classic benefits may be adjusted at the discretion of tournament officials.
