UK-based Daily Fantasy Sports operator PlayON have partnered with the European Tour to offer official Daily Fantasy Golf contests.
Contests will range from 50/50 cash games to GPP tournaments, including daily and weekly options.
Playing Daily Fantasy Golf
The PlayON rostering style involves picking 7 players participating in any given round of a tournament. The team budget cannot exceed €100m so you have to choose wisely.
The European Tour includes many PGA events. This includes the Masters, the Ryder Cup, the British Masters, the Australian PGA Championship, the Italian Open, the French Open, and the U.S. Open. This means plenty of opportunities to enter popular Daily Fantasy Golf contests for cash prizes!
U.S. based DFS operator DraftKings are another operator offering European Tour daily fantasy golf contests, which are available to UK players. They also post daily fantasy golf strategy and tips on the DraftKings Playbook.
European Tour Head of Media Rufus Hack said of the PlayON partnership:
“We are committed to enhancing the fan experience on The European Tour and are very pleased to be partnering with PlayON to offer our fans a compelling daily fantasy challenge.”
In addition, PlayON CEO Killian Jones is also excited to bring Daily Fantasy Golf to fans:
“The addition of golf games to our existing daily fantasy football, basketball and cricket games gives [PlayON] customers a new and exciting way to play each day.”
