The long awaited talk about Tiger Woods Skins Game in Japan has finally been announced.
Woods will take on Rory McIlroy, Jason Day and Hideki Matsuyama in The Challenge: Japan Skins in October, an event that will kick off the Zozo Championship week. Both events will be staged at the Accordia Golf Narashino Country Club in Chiba, Japan.
The purse will be $350,000. The skins game will feature in-match challenges, each hole will have an increasing amount of money riding on it and the golf will be timed to finish under the lights.
Here’s how it will work, according to the AP. Players need to win a hole outright, or it carries over to the next hole. Total prize money is $350,000 — $10,000 per skin for the opening six holes, $20,000 for the next six holes, $20,000 through the 17th hole, and $100,000 for the 18th.
