Aon has announced the scoring system and hole designations for their season long Aon Risk Reward Challenge. Each weak on the PGA and LPGA tours, holes will be designated as the ‘Risk and Reward’ holes and players accumulate points based on how they play them.
The LPGA will have 29 tournaments as part of the Aon Risk Reward Challenge and the PGA Tour will have 36 tournaments part of the challenge. The top player from each Tour on the Aon leaderboard at the end of the regular season will receive a $1 million prize each. “Whether on the tee or reading the green, golfers are constantly looking for insights that give them an edge over the competition. We see clear parallels in how Aon advises clients, as our solutions are rooted in data and analytics that help them minimize volatility and maximize performance,” said Andy Weitz, Chief Marketing Officer, Aon. “The same concept applies in golf, and we are excited to see how players develop strategies that help them understand the risk and realize the reward on each of the Aon Risk Reward Challenge holes.”
The LPGA and PGA TOUR will share the same scoring system. The best two scores from every participating event a player competes in will be counted. The winner will determined by the players that end up with the best score in relation to par. All rounds can be used and if a player makes the cut, she, or he, will have two more shots at the Risk and Reward hole. The challenge not only rewards better play on the challenge holes, but also better play in the tournament as a whole so players get two more shots at it.
