Cognizant Classic in The Palm Beaches

PGA National (Champion Course)


Rawson ups ante in race for final spot in Mojo6

February 25, 2010

The Mojo 6 tournament is living up to its name. Fifteen golfers have already secured their spot in the 16-player field, and a dozen other women are vying for that last opening. It's up to us to decide who that final competitor will be.

The inaugural Raceway Golf at The Mojo 6 tournament, a unique, fast-paced event that will draw a lot of eyeballs, will be held at the Cinnamon Hill Golf Course in Montego Bay, Jamaica on April 15th and 16th. Over those two days, 16 golfers will compete against each other in a series of six-hole matches for the final prize of $1 million.

The 12 players vying for the last spot are Amy Alcott, Nicole Castrale, Laura Davies, Sandra Gal, Vicky Hurst, Jeong Jang, Eun-Hee Ji, Catriona Matthew, Anna Rawson, Beatriz Recari, Marianne Skarpnord and Lindsey Wright.

Gal, Hurst, Rawson and Skarpnord have made the race leading up the The Race more intriguing, using Twitter and Facebook to gather more votes. But Rawson has just announced another hook: If voted into the tournament, the model and golfer will give 100 percent of her winnings to three charities: International Medical Corps, UNICEF and Inspire, a foundation that  helps young victims of suicide. Indeed, suicide is a topic that touches Rawson personally. Her mother committed suicide when she was 5 years old, and Rawson hopes to help those children who have dealt with similar tragedies.

Fans can vote for their favorite player once a day at through March 15. The players who have secured their spots are Kristy McPherson, Suzann Pettersen, Paula Creamer, Morgan Pressel, Jiyai Shin, Brittany Lang, Cristie Kerr, Christina Kim, Anna Nordqvist, Angela Stanford, Mariah Stackhouse, Amanda Blumenherst, Yani Tseng, Na Yeon Choi, Brittany Lincicome.

The Mojo 6 will air on May 1st 2nd.
