The PGA of America has announced a promotion in which you have the chance to win a dream trip for two to Scotland -- the birthplace of golf -- for the 2014 Ryder Cup.
All you have to do is think like U.S. Captain Tom Watson in terms of his three Captain's Picks that will complete the 12-man roster.
Watson will announce his three Captain's Picks during a live show in New York City on Sept. 2 at 7 p.m. from "Saturday Night Live" Studio 8H.
From now until then, fans 18 and over can make their Captain's Picks predictions on MyCaptainsPicks.com. Fans who correctly pick the same three players Watson does on Sept. 2 will be entered into a drawing for the grand prize of a once-in-a-lifetime trip for two to the 2014 Ryder Cup at Gleneagles in Scotland that includes: Two 2014 Ryder Cup tickets for the climate-controlled Harris Pavilion (Sept. 23-28); complimentary roundtrip airfare for two to Scotland; five nights of accommodations at the Hilton Glasgow; a limited-edition United States Ryder Cup Team shirt; a round of golf at premier golf course in Scotland; a new set of golf clubs from Adams Golf; and a $50 per-person, per-day Ryder Cup food and beverage credit.
Fans can visit RyderCup.com to also see picks from celebrities, as they share their passion for golf.
