Ohio Cup held at Inverness

The Toledo District Golf Association will host the third annual Ohio Intrastate Challenge Cup Thursday at Inverness with a shotgun start scheduled at 10 a.m.

The event pits the 12 best players from each of Ohio's five golf associations against each other.

The TDGA team consists of Bob Balcar (Sylvania), Alan Fadel (Inverness), Mark Faught (Brandywine), Mike Gibbons (Sylvania), Fred Grimm (Inverness), John Jambor (Tecumseh, Mich., CC), Steve Mitchell (Inverness), Peter Nessif (Toledo), Craig Soule (Plum Brook), Doug Spencer (Inverness), John Spengler (Toledo) and Joe Wright (Fostoria).

Four team members must be seniors. The 10 best scores determine the champion.

The Columbus association won the first two events, at The Medallion Club in Westerville and the Kirtland Country Club in Willoughby. Joining the TDGA and Columbus in the event are associations from Northern Ohio, Miami Valley and Greater Cincinnati.

INDIO, Calif. - Tiger Woods will join Greg Norman, Jesper Parnevik and defending champion Colin Montgomerie in the 19th annual Skins Game, which for the first time will require players to post the low score on back-to-back holes to earn money.

The only time that rule will not apply is at No. 18.

Woods will play the Thanksgiving weekend event for the first time since 1997 as part of his endorsement deal with Disney, which owns ABC Sports.

Each of the first six holes will be worth $25,000, while the next six will be worth $50,000 and Nos. 13-17 will be worth $70,000. The 18th hole is worth $200,000.

Unlike previous Skins Games, a player who wins a skin will not get credit unless he wins the next hole or is one of the players who ties for the low score. If he fails to do either, the skin will be carried over.

The only time that rule will not apply is at No. 18.
