A skins game is a type of scoring for various sports….which has its origins in golf….but has been adapted for disc golf, curling and bowling….whereas in golf, a skins event has players compete for prize money on each individual hole. There was an annual skins game for male professional golfers…. which took place in November or December each year after the end of the official PGA Tour season from 1983 to 2008….which was recognized by the PGA Tour….but did not count towards the official money list.
The 1985 Skins Game was carried on NBC Sports with legendary Los Angeles Dodgers baseball broadcaster Vin Scully hosting the event that featured Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Tom Watson and Fuzzy Zoeller. In this video seen herewith….Scully interviews Fuzzy Zoeller after the 1st nine holes had been played.
