The Concession, Golfweek team for Ryder Cup tickets

The Concession Golf Club, an award-winning Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course designed in association with Tony Jacklin, is excited to be partnering with Golfweek to offer golf fans an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to win two tickets to the 2012 Ryder Cup matches at Medinah Country Club in Medinah, Ill.

Contestants can test their Ryder Cup knowledge, choose the correct response from a drop-down menu and be automatically entered to win the coveted grand prize. As an added bonus, players may enter once each month to increase their odds of winning.

In addition to receiving two badges to the week-long event, the grand prize winner will also enjoy an exclusive breakfast with Golfweek writers during the Ryder Cup, which will give the winner an inside look at the tournament through the eyes of the media. Additional Golfweek Trivia Challenge prizes include:

• A round of golf with two-time major champion and four-time European Ryder Cup Captain Tony Jacklin

• A limited-edition signed print of the original Bart Forbes oil painting, which prominently features Samuel Ryder holding the original Ryder Cup trophy at Gleneagles in Scotland

• 3 Day 2 night Stay and Play package including fine dining at the award-winning Concession Bistro


The Concession Golf Club was conceived in commemoration of the 1969 Ryder Cup singles match between Nicklaus and Jacklin, where Nicklaus conceded a putt on the 18th hole to Jacklin rendering the two teams in a 17-17 tie and allowing The United States to retain the Ryder Cup having won it in 1967. Nicklaus' gesture, known as "the concession," marked the beginning of a lasting friendship between the two men and inspired one of America's great golf clubs.

"The Concession has a historical connection with the Ryder Cup matches and all of the past captains are honorary members at the club," said Bruce Cassidy Jr., general manager of The Concession Golf Club. "Our goal is to host some of the world's most prestigious golf tournaments and Golfweek's passion for covering these events makes this a good partnership."
