The prize will be considered compensation to the winner. All federal, state, municipal and local taxes associated with receipt or use of a prize are the sole responsibility of winner.
6. Winner Selection and Notification. A pool of 8,000 entries will be selected randomly by Sponsor or Sponsor’s representative from all eligible entries received during the Entry Period. Sponsor will next determine the potential winners by matching the entrant’s stated iron preference with the available prizes. For example, if the entrant indicated a preference for left hand stiff, and there is a left hand stiff prize available, that entrant will be a potential winner (subject to verification, as described below). If, however, there are not left hand stiff prizes available, that entrant will not be a winner. Sponsor will continue this process until 8,000 potential winners are selected, assuming that there are at least 8,000 eligible entries. If there are fewer than 8,000 eligible entries, the prizes will be awarded to the eligible entrants, and any remaining prizes will not be awarded. Decision of Sponsor or Sponsor’s representative are final and binding. The selection process will take place on or about March 30, 2016. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received as well as the number of entrants specifying each specific iron configuration.
The potential prize winners will be notified by Sponsor via the email address associated with the entry. As a condition of receiving the prize, the potential winners may be required to complete, sign and return to Sponsor an affidavit of eligibility and liability release and, except where prohibited by law, a publicity release within the time period designated by Sponsor, if Sponsor so requests, in Sponsor’s sole discretion. If a potential winner fails to do so, or is found to be ineligible, that potential winner will be disqualified. Prizes will be shipped to the winners at Sponsor’s expense, to the address provided by winner at time of entry. It is winner’s sole responsibility to make sure that Sponsor has accurate address information for winner.
