Default Exhibition Match Format Ideas

What would get you out to watch some top pros (male or female) at an exhibition match before the Ledgestone Insurance Open?

Bonus points if you can tie in a way to raise $ for St. Jude in to the match.

50/50 side bets on every hole on who gets ctp, longest putt, longest drive and per hole score(and/or overall score.

Let spectators play best shot against the pros for a few bucks (more or less)per shot. With a separate 50/50 per hole that rolls over if the pros get closer than the spectators.

Both ideas would make for a long round, but could raise a 1000 more or less depending on turn out.

Match play or skins to encourage throws that are too risky for regular play.

Perhaps skills-based stuff. Distance, of course. Longest putt, where each player gets 5 tries to make one from whatever distance they want to attempt. Hyzeriest hyzer. See how far right (or left) the throw can go and still get on the other side of the line from the tee to beyond the target. (Stand behind the thrower and measure the greatest angle. Throws that land short of the target don't count.)

Most importantly, something that is fun and low pressure for the pros. No one will enjoy it if the pros don't.

Distance WITH Accuracy... use distance thrown minus distance from painted centerline or string. Fun to watch and it's easy for spectators to understand when seeing the flight.

Something where the pros are clearly having fun!

2 men and 2 women

1) Top pros playing RIPT cards for 6 or 9 holes.

2) 5 pros (all male or all female so that the skills are more balanced) playing Wolf.
(I can provide the rules if needed.) This would need a good commentator and someone at each throw with a megaphone to announce the card.

3) 5 pros playing RIPT-Wolf combined. (But that may be too hard for spectators to follow.)

Nothing more than 9 holes.

4) Men and Women playing a short Red level pitch-n-putt course that would negate the Men's length advantage. Some format where the women would even have a slight advantage over the men. Some kind of handicap for the men's throwing like men drive with only putters, zephyrs, or ultimate lids?

Have them try to hit an apple off of Terry Miller's head with a disc.

This will be year 2 of having a dunk tank at Ledgestone, with proceeds going to St. Jude.

Pro Am doubles matchplay with the ams buying in and getting to bid for their preferred partners in an auction the night before.

Or to give more people a chance. a chance to buy onto a four person card, three of you playing best disc against the pro (champs vs chumps sort of) You bid for the card you want to be on.

People paid money to get on champs vs chumps. With that many people at Ledgestone you will get good money if enough pros are willing to donate their time.

If you could get a couple of the film crews moving around during the day filming a bit of each card so they can see themselves on youtube later i'm sure it would be a big draw!

I figured my idea probably wasn't original. Very cool.
