Official Press Release:
Innovative Fantasy Golf Platform Announces FedEx Cup Playoff Challenge
Scottsdale, AZ (August 6, 2013) – Ken Griffey, Jr. has never played Pinehurst #2, site of the 2014 Men’s and Women’s U.S. Opens, but he is going to do it soon, and you could be in his foursome.
Golfradar, touted as golf’s most strategic fantasy game, is offering a trip to Pinehurst – including airfare, accommodations and a round with Griffey Jr. on the legendary #2 course – for the player with the best performance during the four-tournament PGA TOUR FedEx Cup Playoff challenge.
Golfradar’s FedEx Cup Playoff challenge winner will be the player with most cumulative points from all four playoff events. The player may be able to accumulate the points needed without participating in all four events. Golfradar will not only offer the grand prize of playing with Griffey for the FedEx Cup as a whole, but it also awards weekly prizes to those who finish on top of the leaderboard.
“I’ve been playing Golfradar all year and I love the competitive aspects and of course trying to beat my friends. I’m excited about the opportunity to play Pinehurst #2 with the winner, of course, but also excited about finding out what strategy they used to win!” said Ken Griffey, Jr., a 13-time MLB All-Star.
The PGA TOUR’s Playoffs for the FedEx Cup begin August 22 at The Barclays, in Jersey City, NJ, and continue through the Deutsche Bank Classic in Boston, the BMW Championship in Chicago and the culminating TOUR Championship in Atlanta which runs September 19th through the 22nd.
