Editor’s note: Following is an edited message from the folks in Ponte Vedra Beach about a special opportunity for a special fan.
PGATOUR.COM IS LOOKING FOR the ultimate fan to help cover the finale of the PGA TOUR Playoffs for the FedExCup, THE TOUR Championship presented by Coca-Cola at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta, Ga., on September 22-26.
Fans nationwide can upload a self-produced video or photo essay describing why they are a fan of the PGA TOUR. Contest entries will be posted to PGATOUR.COM/fancontest to be voted on by the public through September 6. The top 10 entries that receive the most votes will be judged by a PGA TOUR panel and a grand prize winner will be announced on September 10.
Winner’s Package and Role
The winner will receive air travel to and hotel accommodations in Atlanta for THE TOUR Championship presented by Coca-Cola, as well as a media badge good for Wednesday and Thursday of tournament week, where he or she will work alongside a PGATOUR.COM staff member to cover events like the Wounded Warrior Clinic, The First Tee Clinic, practice rounds, player press conferences and first-round play. The winner will post to Twitter via a new fan account, @PGATOURfan, and contribute content to the Live Report on PGATOUR.COM, PGA TOUR Facebook page and YouTube channel during those two days.
The top 10 entries will be judged on the following criteria: evidence of being a PGA TOUR fan; experience working with digital media, including blogs, Twitter, social networking and/or video; and originality of entry.
“It doesn’t matter if you’re a scratch golfer, high handicapper, an aspiring blogger or Steve Stricker’s No. 1 fan—this contest allows our fans to use their creativity and personalities to show their love of golf and the PGA TOUR,” said PGATOUR.COM Executive Producer Scott Gutterman.
“The winner will have a unique opportunity to ‘take the mic’ and get a one-of-a-kind, behind-the-scenes look at THE TOUR Championship.”
