Sweepstakes Entities, as referenced herein, shall include GolfNow, LLC, 7580 Golf Channel Drive Orlando, FL 32819 and NBCUniversal Media, LLC, 30 Rockefeller Plaza, New York, NY 10112 (collectively, “Sponsors”), TaylorMade Adidas Golf Company, 5545 Fermi Ct.

All Entries become the property of Sponsors. Proof of entering information at the Website or entry form (or proof of taking other required action for additional entry) is not considered proof of delivery, effecting entry or receipt of such entry.
Limit one (1) entry via the method listed above (“Base Entry”) per person per day. For the purposes of this Sweepstakes, a “day” is defined as beginning at 12:00 a.m. (midnight) ET and ending the following 11:59 p.m. ET (except for the first day of the Promotion Period (July 7, 2016), which begins at 12:01 a.m. ET and ends at 11:59 p.m. ET).
“Invite a Friend” Entry: During the Promotion Period, you (the entrant) may obtain up to one (1) additional entry by inviting a friend to enter the Sweepstakes, with the additional entry earned when your friend first enters the Sweepstakes through your invitation, as described below. After submitting a Base Entry via the method detailed above, you may click on the “INVITE FRIENDS” option on the Website (via Twitter) to share an invitation with your friends to enter the Sweepstakes via a unique link to the entry form to be posted by you to your personal Twitter account. For each one (1) friend (a “Friend”) that you invite to the Sweepstakes, who is eligible for and subsequently enters the Sweepstakes through the link you provided, subject to the terms herein, you will receive one (1) “Invite a Friend” entry (“Invite a Friend Entry”) – up to a maximum of one (1) such Invite a Friend Entry during the Promotion Period.
The maximum number of “Invite a Friend” Entries you may receive is one (1) despite how many different Friends enter with your unique link. Only one (1) Invite a Friend Entry will be associated with each Friend who enters the Sweepstakes via this method, regardless of the number of entrants who invite such Friend to enter the Sweepstakes and regardless of the number of times any such Friend subsequently obtains Base Entries into the Sweepstakes. If two or more entrants invite the same Friend to enter the Sweepstakes via the method described above, the one (1) Invite a Friend Entry associated with such Friend will be given to the inviting entrant whose link such Friend first clicked to access the Website and enter the Sweepstakes (as determined by Administrator and/or Sponsors in their sole discretion). For purposes of clarity, such Friend may still obtain subsequent Base Entries into the Sweepstakes for himself/herself by clicking on other entrants’ invitations to enter the Sweepstakes (subject to the entry limitations stated herein), but such Friend’s one and only Invite a Friend Entry will be given to the first entrant whose link such Friend used to access the Website. Invite a Friend Entries will only be eligible if Administrator and/or Sponsors determines in their sole discretion that you have fully adhered to the “Invite a Friend” terms and conditions as detailed herein and in compliance with Twitter guidelines (as applicable). Limit of one (1) Invite a Friend Entries total per person and per household during the Promotion Period – an entrant may receive a maximum of one (1) Invite a Friend Entry from Friends entering the Sweepstakes. The Base Entry and Invite a Friend Entry are collectively referred to herein as “Entries.”
Multiple Entries received from any person beyond this limit will void all such additional Entries. Entries generated by a script, macro, or other automated means or by any means that subverts the entry process will be disqualified. Entries must be received before September 4, 2016 at 11:59 PM ET to be eligible for the Sweepstakes. Administrator’s computer shall be the official timekeeper for all matters related to this Sweepstakes. Entries that are incomplete, garbled, corrupted, or unintelligible for any reason, including, but not limited to, computer or network malfunction or congestion, are void and will not be accepted. In case of a dispute over the identity of an entrant, the authorized account holder of the email address used to enter will be deemed to be the entrant. “Authorized account holder” is defined as the person who is assigned to an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization that is responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted email address. Entry constitutes permission (except where prohibited by law) to use entrant’s name, city, state, likeness, image, and/or voice for purposes of advertising, promotion, and publicity in any and all media now or hereafter known, throughout the world in perpetuity, without compensation, notification, permission, or approval.
WINNER SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION: On or about September 9, 2016, one (1) potential winner (“Winner”) will be selected in a random drawing by representatives of Sponsors from all eligible Entries received during the Sweepstakes Period. Sponsors will make two (2) attempts to notify potential Winner at the email address submitted at the time of entry. The random drawing will be conducted by Administrator located at 440 9th Avenue, 17th Floor, New York, NY 10001, an independent judging organization/Administrator whose decisions are final and binding on all matters related to the Sweepstakes. Potential Winner will be required to execute and return an affidavit of eligibility, release of liability, and, except where prohibited, publicity release (collectively, “Sweepstakes Documents”) within three (3) days of such notification. Noncompliance within this time period may result in disqualification, and an alternate potential Winner may be selected from the remaining eligible Entries. If potential Winner cannot be reached, is found to be ineligible, cannot or does not comply with these Official Rules, or if Prize (as defined below) or prize notification is returned as undeliverable, potential Winner will be disqualified and an alternate potential Winner may be selected from the remaining eligible Entries. If entrant is selected in the random drawing is a Canadian resident, in order to be deemed a potential winner, he/she must first correctly answer a timed mathematical skill-testing question without assistance of any kind.
PRIZE: There will be one (1) prize awarded (“Prize”) to Winner (“Winner”). Prize will consist of the following: Winner and up to three (3) guests (each of whom must be 18 years or older) (“Guests”, each a “Guest”) will each receive the following: one (1) TaylorMade M2 club package (M2 Driver, Fairway club, Iron set, and Rescue club ); one (1) outfit from TaylorMade (Shirt, outerwear, pant, footwear and hat); one (1) round of golf with Justin Rose (at a course determined by Sponsors in their sole discretion); one (1) round of golf at The Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables, FL; one (1) round of golf at Diplomat Golf & Tennis Club in Hallandale Beach, FL; one (1) round of golf at Jacaranda Golf Club in Plantation, FL; three (3) night accommodations stay in Miami and two (2) night stay in the Bahamas determined by Sponsors in their sole discretion (two rooms total, double occupancy); a rental car for length of trip (make and model of rental car determined by Sponsors in their sole discretion, one (1) car total for Winner and Guests); round trip coach-class air transport from closest major airport to Winner’s home to the Bahamas, from the Bahamas to Miami, Florida and from Miami, Florida back to the closest major airport to Winner’s home (all flight details and order of flights will be determined by Sponsors in their sole discretion). Prize will be awarded “as is” with no warranty or guarantee, either express or implied by Sponsors excluding with respect to TaylorMade Adidas Golf Company with regard to any express warrantees on the TaylorMade M2 club package and the outfit from TaylorMade.
Estimated Retail Value (“ERV”) of Prize is eighteen thousand dollars ($18,000) USD. Actual Retail Value (“ARV”) of Prize may vary. As the Prize includes a Trip, ARV may vary based on, among other things, availability, existing rates at time of booking, dates of travel, and point of departure. Any difference between ERV and ARV will not be awarded. As Prize has an ARV of six hundred dollars ($600) or greater, Sponsors will furnish an Internal Revenue Service Form 1099 to Winner for the ARV of Prize for the year in which Prize was won. If Winner is a Canadian resident, he/she understands and agrees that he/she may be responsible for U.S. foreign withholding tax on the value of Prize. In either case, Winner agrees to fully cooperate with Sponsors and their agencies relative to Sponsors’ compliance with all applicable governmental tax-reporting requirements.
All details of Prize will be determined by Sponsors in their sole discretion. Sponsors reserve the right to substitute the Prize or portions thereof of equal or greater value if a prize listed or any portion thereof is unavailable for any reason. All taxes and other expenses, costs, or fees associated with the acceptance and/or use of Prize are the sole responsibility of Winner. Prize cannot be transferred by Winner or redeemed for cash and is valid only for the items detailed above, with no substitution of Prize by Winner. If Prize is unclaimed within a reasonable time after notification from Sponsors, as determined by Sponsors in their sole discretion, it will be forfeited, and time permitting, an alternate Winner may be selected from the remaining eligible Entries at Sponsors’ sole discretion. Winner must accept the Prize in its entirety as stated above or Winner will be disqualified and an alternate potential Winner may be selected from the remaining eligible Entries.
Winner must be able to travel 11/1/16 through 3/31/17 on such dates designated by Sponsors. The Trip awarded to the Winner must be taken within dates provided by the Sponsors or the Prize will be forfeited. Dates of Trip are subject to change. Travel arrangements must be made through Sponsors’ agent, on a carrier of Sponsors’ choice. Certain travel restrictions and blackout dates may apply. Sponsors have the right in their sole discretion to substitute ground transportation for air transportation depending on Winner’s place of residence. If Winner chooses to accept Prize with fewer than three (3), or no Guests, Prize will be awarded in increments appropriate for actual number of travelers and no compensation or alternate prize will be awarded in conjunction therewith. Winner and all Guests must travel together on the same itinerary, including the same departure date, destination and return date, and must have valid travel documents (e.g., valid government issued photo ID and/or passport) prior to departure, and failure to do so will result in forfeiture of Prize. Each Guest must complete, sign and return a Liability Release and a Publicity Release (where lawful), prior to issuance of travel documents. Sponsors will not replace any lost or stolen tickets, travel vouchers or certificates. Once travel commences, no unscheduled stopovers are permitted; if an unscheduled stopover occurs, full fare will be charged from stopover point for the remaining segments, including return, of the Trip. Sponsors are not liable for any expenses incurred as a consequence of flight cancellation/delay. Trip may not be combined with any other offer and travel may not qualify for frequent flyer miles or other “perks”. All travel and lodging will be at the risk of Winner and Guests. Winner is solely responsible for all expenses and costs associated with acceptance and/or use of Prize not specifically stated herein as being awarded, including, without limitation any and all taxes and other expenses, costs, or fees associated with the acceptance and/or use of Prize, travel insurance, ground transportation (other than as described above), security and airport fees, taxes, insurance, gasoline, meals, gratuities, and souvenirs. Sponsors shall have the right, but not the obligation, to make any deductions and withholdings that Sponsors deem necessary or desirable under applicable federal, state and local tax laws, rules, regulations, codes or ordinances.
Justin Rose’s participation is subject to his availability and professional commitments. If Mr. Rose is unavailable for the entire round of golf with Winner and Guests for any reason, the remaining elements of the prize shall represent the Sweepstakes Entities’ entire liability to the Winner (and his/her Guests.) With regard to Prize acceptance and use (including but not limited to the round of golf with Mr. Rose specifically), Winner and his/her Guests each agree to act in an appropriate, well-behaved, courteous and respectful manner at all times. (For the avoidance of doubt, inappropriate behavior includes but is not limited to asking Mr. Rose to pose for an inordinate number of photographs, autograph an inordinate number of items and/or to autograph any inappropriate items.) Should Sponsors determine that Winner and/or one or more of his/her Guests have failed to conduct themselves appropriately, Sponsors may immediately terminate the prize trip for Winner and/or such Guest(s); and, in such case, Sponsors shall not have any further liability or obligation to Winner and/or such Guest(s), as applicable.
