CHICAGO, June 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Slow golfers, poison ivy, rattlesnakes, alligators, and a host of other irritations are examples of frequently reported nuisances of the fairway that add strokes to a golfer's game. Now golfers can compare horror stories and win an incredible bi-weekly prize package in the Great Golf Stroke-Off Contest, sponsored by buji, Jack Moorehouse, author of How to Break 80(TM), and G.R.I.P.
Through humor and commiseration, the contest blog () is ultimately intended to be a source of education and practical advice for employing useable techniques and common-sense strategies to improve golfers' games.
Golfers are invited to share their stories that made them see red while on the green on the blog. Bi-weekly, a panel of judges will comment on and select the most skin-crawling of the submissions and the (un)lucky golfer will win a prize package of must-have golf products from each of the sponsoring companies with a total retail value of $299 per prize package. By summer's end this blog intends to be one of the most robust archives of humorous golf horror stories on the Internet. (See buji video teaser*.)
"We learned that poison ivy is just one of the many elements that add strokes to a golfer's game through our recently conducted national survey** and wanted to collect and reward those who have experienced the true horrors of the fairway! Of course, our panel of crack moderators will be there to comment, encourage and offer helpful tips on improving golfers' games," said Cadey O'Leary, president of buji, LLC.
The contest will run for 12 weeks, beginning on June 15, and will be moderated by a rotating panel of golf pros from the participating sponsors. Golf pros and other experts will share techniques for enhancing play while avoiding common stroke-adding pitfalls. "We have put together incredible prize packages and will be distributing 12 of them to selected golfers who share their stories with us. No doubt a 'can you top this' streak will be running through this contest. Let the games begin!" adds O'Leary.
