Masters Madness
: Golf Vacations Ireland has a giveaway centered around the upcoming Masters - here's the vital info:

"Golf Vacations Ireland is championing Rory McIlroy to win the Masters in Augusta 2009. We’d like golfers everywhere to join us in cheering on Northern Ireland’s youngest Tour player, so we’re giving them something to cheer about.

Here’s the deal – if Rory’s wearing the green jacket in Augusta Sunday evening, we’re going to celebrate in style with a US $100,000 giveaway.

To enter, visit our website, answer a competition question and, if Rory McIlroy wins the 2009 US Masters, entrants could be in with a chance to win one of 4 amazing golf vacations in Ireland, each to the value of US $19,000 – that’s $1,000 for each of Rory’s 19 years. The average cost per golfer of one of our vacations is US $2,500, so there’s plenty here to make this a trip of a lifetime for the winners and their golf buddies.

And that’s not all! In recognition of Rory’s youth and golfing talents, if he wins, we’ll also donate US $24,000 to The First Tee."

That golf trip sounds awesome! And I don't even golf! Hmm, if I won a trip to Ireland, I think I could work on my game a little more.
