“For example, I pay $10 then I might choose two numbers such as $1.15 and $3.75. If I’m the only person to pick either one of those numbers and it’s one of the lowest three bids, then I win the opportunity to play with Mr Hogg,” explained Mr Geyer.“The trick is placing a number that is low enough, but that no one else has.”
The Barossa Herald are reporting that the Barossa Valley Golf Course has secured Viv Richards to come and play in a one-off event early next year. The new manager of the club has pulled off a big but curious coup for the 36 teams event on February 24 next year.
I didn’t even know Viv Richards played golf until I was reminded of the annual Sir Vivian Richards golf tournament held in St.Lucia every year.
Former Australian cricketing speedster Rodney Hogg will also be playing in the Barossa Valley as well and members of the public can “bid” to secure a spot in Hogg’s foursome in a lowest unique bid format.
Sounds like a great day and if it isn’t, at least there is plenty of great wine around! Click here for full details, call or email the club to take part of register your bids.
