What is a birdie?
In golf, “par” is the normal expected score on any given hole. Every one of the 18 holes on a golf course has its own “par” assigned to it. A “birdie” is one stroke under par for a hole, possibly derived from the term “It flew like a bird” to indicate a good shot.
Ex. Par 5 on Hole 18 at TPC San Antonio, AT&T Oaks Course, a Birdie would be 4, an Eagle would be 3, and a Double Eagle would be 2 strokes (hits) to get the ball in from the tee box, onto the green and into the hole.
“Guess the Birdies” Contest
To add excitement, donors can participate in the “Guess the Birdies” contest. Participants simply guess how many birdies will be made from Monday and Wednesday’s pro-ams on the host course (AT&T Oaks Course) and Saturday’s pro-am (AT&T Canyons Course) including amateurs and pros. In addition, the birdies made by the pros, Thursday-Sunday of competition are included in the total number of birdies made during the Valero Texas Open tournament week.
The individual with the correct guess wins the grand prize, a Stay-and-Play Package to TPC San Antonio and JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort. Ties are determined through a tiebreaker event. And if no one guesses correctly, the computer will randomly select the grand prize winner.
The Stay-and-Play Gift Package includes:
- Three (3) night stay at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort
- Two (2) rounds of golf for two at TPC San Antonio
- Spa Service for two (2) during stay
- Breakfast for two (2) each morning
- The golf rounds or spa service may be traded for a dinner for two (2) in 18 Oaks Steak House
