A unique format
Aramco’s sponsorship of this novel Ladies European Tour (LET) series allows some of the best female golfers in the world to compete in a unique format that sees teams plus individuals play for a $1 million prize at each of the four events. The series started last month in St. Albans, U.K., and will continue in New York from Oct. 14-16, and then in Jiddah from Nov. 10-12.
Each Aramco Team Series tournament sees 36 captains lead teams of four players, who together compete to shoot the lowest combined score over three days of golf. All teams feature three LET players paired through a unique draft system, in which captains choose one player and are randomly assigned another. The fourth member of each team is an amateur golfer, a position open to all golfers in Spain for the Aramco Team
Series – Sotogrande, through the tournament’s world first “Team Up” competition. That means it could fall to an amateur golfer to hole a LET tournament winning putt to secure prize money for the professional players, a feat unique to world golf.
