Twitter Land Rover for Trip to Shark Shootout

If you like to drive a golf ball and a luxury SUV, Land Rover has a dream Twitter contest for you – a trip to the Shark Shootout, Greg Norman's annual golf tournament in Naples, Fla., that features 23 PGA Tour players plus Norman. All you have to do is Tweet Land Rover about your favorite drive – either on a golf course or your favorite road.

Get the connection? You drive a golf ball and drive a Land Rover (not that it has to be the vehicle of choice for your favorite drive but it probably can't hurt). According to the Land Rover Twitter contest rules, "Once you have signed up to follow @RangeRoverUSA, @reply @RangerRoverUSA telling us about your favorite drive--down the fairway or on the road. Tweets must include the hash tag #sharkshootout and must be "@" replies to @RangeRoverUSA in order to receive an entry. There is a limit of one (1) entry per person/Twitter account for the entire Entry Period." The contest closes at 11:59 p.m., EST on Nov. 29.

This contest requires a little talent because you need to tell your tale in 125 characters or less (because #sharkshootout takes up 15 characters). The good news is the winner is picked via random drawing, so you don't have to work that hard.

For your succinctness, you and one guest will travel to Naples, Fl., from December 9, 2010 to December 12, 2010 to attend The Shark Shootout, which is held at The Tiburon Golf Course (a little shout out to Hyundai). Here's the Land Rover details, "Trip consists of round trip, coach class air transportation from a major U.S. gateway airport nearest winner's residence to designated location, three nights standard hotel accommodations (one room, double occupancy) at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort in Naples, Florida and two tickets to the Shark Shootout."

OK, so Land Rover cheaps out and only flies you coach, but three nights at the Ritz Carlton isn't too shabby. What are you waiting for? Get thee to your Twitter account. This may not be that tough of a contest to win. As of 9:30 a.m., Nov. 25, only 52 people had viewed the rules website.
