Skins Game on the Move in 2007


2006 LG Skins GameINDIAN WELLS, Calif. -- The Skins Game, a Thanksgiving, Silly Season tradition, will move to the Celebrity Course at Indian Wells Golf Resort, it was announced on Tuesday.
'We heard that the Skins Game might leave the valley; we didn't want that to happen and we knew that the Celebrity Course would be the right venue for this acclaimed golf tournament,' said Indian Wells Mayor Rob Bernheimer. 'Hosting the Skins Game as well as the Pacific Life Open in Indian Wells will continue to increase marketing exposure, subsequently giving a major boost to valley tourism and economic prosperity, and further positioning Indian Wells as a world-renowned resort and sports destination.'
The new deal calls for the Skins Game to be played at the Celebrity Course through 2009.
The 2006 Skins Game was played at Trilogy Golf Club at La Quinta and was won in a playoff by reigning Players Championship winner Stephen Ames.
