Orlando, Fla. (PRWEB) September 12, 2007
With no entry fee required, a $25,000 grand prize and weekly awards offered as part of GOLF CHANNEL's Fall Fantasy Foursome will be like free money to winners in the network's newest, online golf contest beginning Sept. 20 (http://fantasy.golfchannel.com/splash.cfm).
Ensuring golf fans are aware that the golf season doesn't end with the conclusion of the inaugural FedExCup season and the PGA TOUR Playoffs, the GOLF CHANNEL is introducing the fantasy game as a way to keep viewers engaged throughout the seven Fall Series tournaments that will air exclusively on its network.
"We've designed the Fantasy Foursome for beginners as well as hard-core fantasy gamers, and the grand prize will be the largest cash payout for any free fantasy golf game," said Shannon O'Neill, GOLF CHANNEL's senior vice president of new media and business development.
The game is designed to help participants understand what's on the line for the pros during the seven fall events, where stakes may include a right to retain playing privileges on the PGA TOUR or qualifying for marquee events, like the Masters or the lucrative World Golf Championships.
Playing is easy, and fans can register now for free at http://www.GolfChannel.com. All participants have to do is select four players from the tournament field each week of the seven-week Fall Series, with their first opportunity when the field is set for the Turning Stone Resort Championship. They have the option of choosing their own stable of players or opting for the "Quick Pick," which will select for them. The foursome winning the most money each week will win a golf equipment package worth $2,500, with the overall seven-week winner earning a cash card worth $25,000.
Added features of the game include weekly e-mails reminding participants to choose their players. And, just like a weekend 18 holes that may include a generous mulligan from playing partners, the Fall Fantasy Foursome includes a second chance, as well. Gamers can drop a player that may have missed the cut or is doing poorly on Saturday, and feel better about Sunday's final round. Participants also can watch GOLF CHANNEL coverage of the PGA TOUR to collect passwords that are worth additional money.
