The contest will culminate with an in-person final event on an aboutGOLF simulator at a location to be determined, where a trip for two to the 2023 Ryder Cup at Marco Simone Golf & Country Club in Rome, Italy will be awarded to the champion.
Participants will compete in a monthly closest-to-the-pin competition running from September 2022 to February 2023. Each month, it will take place on a different signature par-3 at historic and future Ryder Cup venues available on aboutGOLF simulators.

Each month, entrants will receive one free entry into the aboutGOLF Ryder Cup Sim Series. Players will attempt five shots on the month’s featured par 3, and the shot nearest to the hole will count for the competition. The player who is closest to the pin for each month’s contest hole will automatically qualify for the finals event. Additionally, a "Captain’s Pick" will also earn a trip to the finals during each month of the aboutGOLF Ryder Cup Sim Series via a random drawing for all players participating in the competition.
At the finals event, all monthly qualifiers and Captain’s picks will compete in a nine-hole, closest-to-the-pin contest staged on par-3s at historical and future Ryder Cup venues. The player with the lowest cumulative total distance from the hole across these nine holes will win the aboutGOLF Ryder Cup Sim Series and a trip for two to the 2023 Ryder Cup in Rome, Italy.
