ABOUT THE FIGHT FOR LIFE GOLF SERIES
The Fight For Life Golf Series is part of the Joan L. Kidd, MD, Fight For Life Continuum, an organization
providing fundraising programs and producing events that benefit nonprofits which have raised more than $1 million for more than 60 non-profit organizations and invested more than a half million dollars to support cancer patients and their families since 2016.
There is a one-time entry fee of $150 for a series of six tournaments. Participants will designate a non-profit for which they will play, and one-third of that entry fee goes to their charity of choice.
Competitors play a round of golf on Friday, or Saturday or Sunday of the scheduled tournament week at any course of their choosing. The Fight for Life Golf Series is powered by the Chipd In mobile app, which connects players to be able to compete with other golfers nationwide on the same tournament weekend at any golf course in the U.S. A golf handicap will be calculated for each golfer (80% net scoring) so all skill levels are welcome to compete. In addition, the app will calculate a course handicap based on the par and slope rating of each player’s course to create a level playing field.
As each golfer then logs their scores live during a tournament round, a national leaderboard provides real-time scoring so all golfers can follow the action LIVE all weekend.
After each event, players earn ranking points based on their finish. Players can follow the season long points race directly in the app as they attempt to qualify for the in person National Championship at Shingle Creek Resort in Orlando Oct. 14-16 and compete for the National Championship title and overall season Fight for Life Cup.
Once the Spring and Summer series are completed, the top 50 players and ties for each Series in the points standings advance to the National Championship at Shingle Creek. Also advancing will be the Top 25 finishers in the Summer Championship single event, who are not otherwise qualified in the Summer Series points standings, who complete play in a minimum of 3 events, which includes the Summer Championship.
Alternates are all players not in the top 100 and ties or Top 25 otherwise exempt by their finish in the Summer Championship.
At the National Championship in Orlando, they will compete for prizes such as a 7 day Mediterranean voyage for two on the Sea Dream Yacht for the winner of the shootout, a trip for the champion and his golf buddy to a top golf destination and much more. There will also be a concert at the House Of Blues, Disney, an event of the Fight for Life Concert Series for players, guests, the public and participating nonprofits, skills competitions, and a long drive exhibition by two-time World Long Drive Champion Tim Burke.
Another benefit for golfers is that upon registration, they will receive free access to the Continuum’s National Merchant program that delivers discounts at tens of thousands of participating merchants across the country for six months, which will result in significant savings for the golfers and their families.
