The Wells Fargo Championship is a huge supporter of literacy and book access in the Charlotte region. To honor their commitment and to celebrate the upcoming tournament, Promising Pages is hosting a “bookshot” challenge. What the heck is that, you ask? Think mini-golf with book obstacles.

Here’s what you need:

  • books (hardback are best)
  • a cup or something to represent the “hole”
  • a golf ball & golf club (preferably a putter)
  • a phone or camera to video record your “bookshot”
  • a little creativity, ingenuity, and some patience

Set your books up between the ball’s starting point and the “hole” you’re aiming for. You can putt the ball down steps, under a book tower, through an upside down book, bounce it off of a standing book, or use a book as a ramp. Try out different configurations until you’re able to putt the ball through your book obstacles and get it into the “hole” in one try. Be creative and have fun!

Did we mention that every “bookshot” video, that follows the instructions below, will be entered into a drawing to win 2 Wells Fargo Championship Grounds Tickets (good any day of the 2024 tournament)? Bonus points if you tag a friend and challenge them to post their own “bookshot” video.

  1. Post your “hole-in-one bookshot” video to Instagram or Facebook
  2. Tag @PromisingPagesPage (on Facebook) or @PromisingPages (on Instagram) and @WellsFargoGolf
  3. Hashtag your post with #bookshot

The winner of the tickets will be contacted through the social media channel they posted their video on. Can’t wait to see if you’ve won? Visit the Wells Fargo Championship website to purchase tickets or to learn more. Wells Fargo Championship May 6 – 12, 2024

Good luck and keep reading!
