Every chapter holds each of these events at some point during the assigned month. Listed below are the month, name, total purse amount and a brief description for each tournament. Some chapters will have 35 players, some will have 5, but all will have bad golf and good times.
The Am-Am is a two-man team event. The team with the lowest total score will win the two-headed trophies, featuring one head focusing on a putt, while the other chugs a beer. The money prizes will still be awarded based on individual scoring in the tournament, so the overall winner will receive the big check. The last thing any medio wants to do is ruin his friend’s entire season, and perhaps his chance at the World Title, with his terrible play.
Steeped in tradition, The Bastards is the most important tournament in the history of the MGA. The MGA was launched in 2006 with the first edition of this tournament and it has remained the most significant tournament ever since. As the first major of the year, pressure is high for those players hoping to complete the Mrand Slam by winning all four majors. The winner of The Bastards receives the coveted blue trucker cap and a secure spot in the history and lore of the MGA.
Perhaps the most appropriately named MGA event, the FORE! Championship offers one last low-pressure event before entering the summer swing of majors. While itself not a major, the tournament features the largest purse of the year outside of the World Championship. So a win here goes a long ways towards a money title.
The summer swing of majors starts with the Freedom and Unity Open, the most patriotic of all MGA events. Red white and blue come standard with this tournament and patriotic clothing is all but mandatory. Eagles, while all-but-extinct on a golf course full of mediocre players, will always feature heavily in this tournaments yearly trophy.
The home of golf is celebrated with this tongue-in-cheek event. Traditionally played on a links style course if one can be found in town and in budget. The winner of this event is presented with the Claret Juggs and is guaranteed to get some double-takes while transporting the trophy back to his car.
The final major of the year represents the last chance at redemption for most MGAers. By this point in the season, many are looking for a monetary boost into the top 10 on the money list and the last major of the year is a great opportunity to do that. The classiest and most conventional trophy presented during the year always comes with a win at The MGA.
The majors are over and you will have to wait until next year to become a major champion. But that’s no reason not to tell all the chicks in the bar that you’re a major champ anyway, while doing Jaeger shots and talking about how much money you made this year. Welcome to the Douche Bag Invitational! Everyone’s interpretation of a douche bag varies, so show us what you think one looks like by dressing up as him. Don’t worry about offending someone, because you probably will no matter what you wear. The winner of this event gets an embroidered visor, up-side-down of course, because that’s how douche bags wear them. The logo depicts a knot of one dollar bills with a twenty wrapped around the outside.... douche.
The final regular season event is your last chance to qualify for the MGA World Championships. Pull out all the stops and go for the win, it’s the last tournament of the year, can’t hold anything back now. The winner will receive a ghoulish skeleton trophy signifying their last gasp at glory.
Golfers travel the world over to reach this prestigious tournament to determine once and for all who is the most kinda alright golfer for the year. The MGA books a block of rooms and a golf course in Vegas and then just sits back and watches the chaos ensue. The championship belt is a traveling trophy that the new champion gets to keep for one glorious year. The only requirement of the new champion is that he wears the title belt out on the strip for the small, classy celebration party that follows the tournament…
