About The LG Skins Game
As the LG Skins Game begins its second quarter-century of play, this year’s Thanksgiving weekend event at the Celebrity Course in Indian Wells, Calif., promises to deliver plenty of the same excitement that made the first 25 editions so captivating.
In fact, the final outcome of the 2007 extravaganza wasn’t decided until Sunday’s 18th hole, when Stephen Ames calmly sank a seven-foot birdie putt to capture nine skins and $650,000 of his $675,000 total in a successful defense of his title. Ames defeated five-time event champion Fred Couples, who finished second with $325,000 of the $1 million purse, while rookies Zach Johnson and Brett Wetterich went skinless.
This year, Ames will attempt to become the only player besides Payne Stewart (1991-93) to win three consecutive LG Skins Game crowns. A stellar and wildly popular field of Ames, three-time major champion Phil Mickelson, seven-time PGA Tour winner K.J. Choi, and 2008 U.S. Open runner-up Rocco Mediate will no doubt create more thrilling moments. Every element of the action—in-flight shots against the sky, desert, or grass background; grass blades flying from shots lashed out of thick rough; sand grains sailing out of a bunker—is captured with incredible detail on LG’s high-performance flat-screen TVs that put you right in the heat of the competition.
The LG Skins Game is an 18-hole event televised over two days-nine holes each day. A player earns money only when winning a hole outright. If two or more players halve (tie) a hole, that hole’s money carries over to the next hole.
Each hole counts as one skin; for instance, if three consecutive holes are tied and a player wins the fourth hole outright, he wins four skins and the total amount of money those holes are worth. Holes 1 through 6 are worth $25,000 each; holes 7 through 12 are worth $50,000 each; holes 13 through 17 are worth $70,000 each; and the 18th hole is worth $200,000.
