Greensboro, GA (PPG) -- The Inaugural Big Break Invitational starts today at the Reynolds Plantation Great Waters Course with 20 men and 20 women from past seasons competing for $300,000, with the winner taking home a $100,000 check. Past Big Break contestants have had great success furthering their golf careers with a few of the men playing on the PGA and Web.com Tours, while some of the girls earning status on the LPGA and Symetra Tours.
As you would expect from the creators of the Big Break TV series, this is not your normal stroke play or match play event. The men and women will compete separately the first three days that includes two days of stableford with a cut to twelve men and twelve women. Then a one day match play competition, six men vs six men and six women vs six women, with the winners advancing to the final day. The event concludes with a stroke play competition for the final twelve contestants, six men and six women, battling it out for the the single champion of The Big Break Invitational.
The players are all raving about the course layout and the lightning quick greens. Great Waters opted for the new MiniVerde Bermuda Greens a few years back which gives the course more days per year of perfect putting surfaces. With nine of the last ten holes along Lake Oconee, it is one of the most memorable courses in the southeast and is the perfect test to crown the Inaugural Big Break Invitational Champion.
