Welcome to the 2020 Masters for Max Tournament!
Please Note: The Masters tournament has been postponed to November, but to play in this year’s challenge you must register by May 31, 2020 or until we have received 5,000 team entries, whichever comes first.
If your entry fee/donation is not received by the deadline you will not be eligible to play in the November 2020 Masters for Max.
What is the Masters for Max Challenge?
M4M is a Masters pool that gives you a chance to win real money while supporting a fantastic cause. 1st place will almost certainly pay $10k+, and there will be other opportunities to win significant scratch, including the illustrious “DFL” prize for the person most inept at choosing a team, winners each day, and a variety of other awards. Last year our winner took home $18,750 and almost $40,000 in total prizes were awarded in over a dozen categories. Since its inception, this little competition has donated over $100,000 to Camp Ho Mita Koda. Fist bump!
This year’s tournament will be a little different given the Masters has been postponed to the Fall. In order to support our summer campers, you must enter/donate by May 31st (or until we have received 5,000 team entries, whichever comes first)*. Once registered, you’ll receive an email a few weeks before the Masters with simple instrcutions on how to select your teams of 4 players from 4 categories. The lowest aggregate team score wins.
*Last year we had almost ~3,700 teams entered from ~2,000 individual players.
2020 Masters for Max Entry Process
1. Register and donate by May 31, 2020 or until we have reached 5,000 entries, whichever comes first. This will qualify you to play in the 2020 M4M Challenge when the rescheduled Masters Tournament is played in November.
2. A few weeks before the Masters, you will receive an email with instruction on how to choose your teams. It will be simple and easy. Once you have made your team selections you are entered to win, and you’ll receive numerous communications, Leaderboards, and even a Live Leaderboard App to follow your progress.
Why do we need to enter/donate now?
This contest supports a summer camp. Paying your entry fee/donation now allows us to support the 2020 camp season while still holding the Masters for Max Challenge during the actual Masters this Fall.
What happens if the COVID-19 situation lingers long enough to cancel the 2020 Masters?
The charitable portion of your entry fee and all extra donations will be used for 2020 camp scholarships and ongoing camp operational needs. If the 2020 Masters is ultimately canceled, the non-charitable portion of your entry fee will be used in the 2021 Masters for Max Challenge, giving you an opportunity to win at that time.
Who can I contact with questions?
Please email M4M2020@gmail.com with any questions.
THE FINE PRINT
IF YOU HAVE DONATED BY MAY 31, 2020 you are eligible to enter team(s) in the Masters for Max pool. After you have paid you will receive payment confirmation, and in early November you will receive an email with a link to the team entry website that allows you to choose a 4 player team from 4 categories (Historically: Top 8 in the world, Remaining Top 25 in the world, Remaining Americans, Remaining Internationals).
PLEASE NOTE: I WILL BE CROSS-REFERENCING NAMES & EMAIL ADDRESSES. IF YOU DO NOT DONATE HERE AT THE CAMP HO MITA KODA WEBSITE, YOUR TEAM WILL NOT BE ELIGIBLE TO WIN.
Note to first time M4M Participants: Once I have a final tally of all entry fees I will send a breakdown of all the prize payouts, but at a minimum, there will be prizes for the Top 10 finishers (I anticipate 1st place will again exceed $10,000), Dead Last, as well as some other new prizes at my discretion this year (you’ll have to wait and see).
If you’re on Instagram, follow @M4Max2020 for Leaderboards, updates and random gifs and images related to the unfolding tournament action. With any luck we will again have a “Live Leaderboard” app, and I’ll also email Leaderboards and a summary of each day’s action at the end of each round.
