The Major Series of Putting is coming to Las Vegas at the end of October. And it looks like its new Las Vegas venue is ready for its closeup. On Thursday, event ambassador and eight-time PGA Tour winner Brad Faxon shared this stunning aerial photo of the stadium:
Pretty sweet. Here are a couple other images shared on the MSOP's Facebook page:
And here's a promo video about the 18-hole putting course, which was created by Nicklaus Design and built adjacent to Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on the Vegas strip:
In case you haven't heard about the MSOP, the two-week event will feature a variety of putting contests for big stakes. Competitors can either get into contests through qualifiers or by plunking down their own entry fees, similar to the World Series of Poker, which is held every year in Sin City. For more information, check out MSOP.com.
And Faxon, always considered one of the tour's best putters during his career, will get a crack at the new course as well. The Fox Sports broadcaster is set to host and compete against tour pros Colt Knost, Graham DeLaet, and John Cook among others in the All Pro Championship Oct. 30-31. If Vegas sportsbooks are taking bets on the event, our money's on Brad.
