Welcome to our tournament page for the 2005
Tommy Bahama Challenge golf event. "There has never been an event
which solely features great, young players until now," said Terry Jastrow,
president of Jastrow Productions, the co-creator/producer of the event prior to
the inaugural 2004 Tommy Bahama Challenge held at the Grayhawk Golf Club in
Invitations go to the two leading American
young guns on the PGA TOUR money list through the World Golf Championships-NEC
Invitational and the two top-ranked International young guns from the Official
World Golf Rankings, identified as age 30 or younger. Two sponsor invitations
will complete each team. The purse is $700,000 with the winning team equally
"The format is
something new and exciting," said Steve Loy, president and CEO of Gaylord
Sports Management. "But even more than that the Tommy Bahama Challenge is
the first event of its kind featuring the young
guns from around the world, who soon may be the backbone of the Ryder Cup and
Presidents Cup teams for years to come.
The Tommy Bahama Challenge pits
four top "Young Gun" players (defined as age 30 or younger) from the
States against a team of
four international players in individual 18-hole stroke-play matches. The Tommy
Bahama Challenge purse is $700,000 with the winning team equally dividing
$400,000. The medalist (the low score of the tournament) will also receive a
$20,000 cash bonus and a 2006 Mercedes.
The inaugural event was won by the U.S. Team comprised of Chad Campbell, Zach
Johnson, Hank Kuehne, and Chris Riley.
