In terms of a business proposition, this doesn't make as much sense as a large and low-stakes operation (such as the Myrtle Beach WorldAM). You're looking to profit off gambling which means you can learn a lot from the casino industry, and the thing about casinos is that only a very small percentage of their business is from the high rollers willing to make large bets. More than 65% of casino revenue comes directly from slot machines, because everybody can afford them and people can put their money in quickly.
The number of people willing to bet in quantities that large is, quite simply, staggeringly small. Casinos know this, and its why they focus on increasing revenue and players for their slots machines rather than advertising lavish benefits for high rollers. A more prudent business idea would be a more widespread series of tournaments you host, focusing heavily on local advertising on nearby courses and pricing entry at only 10-15% above the cost of greens fees. You'll make less money per tournament, for certain, but smaller tournaments like that often fill to capacity when they look like fun and don't break the bank. You can also host many, many more of them in a year.
I have no doubt there are people around the world willing to ante up for a $10,000 buy-in for a tournament. My doubt is that you would be able to reach enough of them without specific connections to make the event a reality. Among the people willing to pay that kind of entry fee, you'll find an even smaller percentage of them willing to do that without being wined and dined or given lavish benefits at the tournament itself. Most of the people with that kind of disposable income are entering this kind of tournament for fun, not because they are looking to turn a profit, and their expectations for the destination, food, and events off the course will reflect that. The people willing to make that buy-in for the money alone, and play a fairly standard course with no events outside of the golf itself, are a minority among the already small minority willing or able to pay the price of entry among the minority of people worldwide who even golf to start with. You're literally looking for the minority within the minority within the minority, which isn't impossible but does become prohibitively expensive without the right connections.
This isn't trying to earn riches from the niches so much as it is trying to find 20 or more needles in a haystack.
No. The QB pairing is a curious mix:
#10 Ta'Amu Jordan (6-2 | 221 lbs). from U. of Mississippi (Ole' Miss)
#4 Nick Fitzgerald (6-5 | 227 lbs.) from Mississippi State
The two started against each other twice in their annual Egg Bowl.
In 2017, Fitzgerald went down with a leg injury in the first quarter, and Jordan hit for two long TB passes in the second half to spark a 31-28 upset of 16th ranked MS State.
In 2018, Fitzgerald and crew struck back for a 35-3 trouncing of Ole' Miss.
In 2018, Fitzgerald passed for 1767 yards (51% completion) for 16 TD and 9 Ints. Also rushed for 1121 yards and 13 TD, 5.1 YPC average.
In 2018, Jordan passed for 3918 yards (62% completions) for 19 TD and 8 Int. / Also rushed for 342 yards and 6 TD, a 2.9 YPC average.
This year Jordan has been a better rusher than in college, and is a solid overall QB. Fitzgerald comes in on short yardage, either pounding it ahead or flipping a play-action from the Wildcat.
Curiously, the BattleHawks offense reminds me of an SEC team: Power running and zone reads, mixed with play-action and screen passes.
In case you're wondering... I'm a Mizzou Tiger fan!
Hi. I'm new to the forum. I'm from the United Kingdom & after playing off +2 25 years ago, I returned to golf 18 months ago after 20 years out. I'm now 48 years old & already back off scratch & won my club Championship, so having to set the goals a bit higher this year.
1) Win 2 trophies
2) top 5 finish in the English Mid Amateur championship
3) handicap down to +2 again
