Double payday this weekend at Huntington Beach

by Unknown at 4:45 PM

In keeping with this season's theme of mo' money, while simultaneously challenging the sanity of naming rights conventions, the 2008 AVP Crocs Tour Cuervo Gold Crown Huntington Beach Open features two events this weekend:

  • Fri, Sat: Standard open format, $20k purse
  • Sun: Cuervo Gold Crown mini-tournament, $25k purse
The Cuervo Gold Crown is open to the top four teams on the Tour, based on previous tournament points. Last year, the Gold Crown was awarded at Huntington purely on points, with no extra tournament.

While the extra money is probably good, the extra competition will surely add some wear and tear on the top players in an already-long season.
