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.
I will let you gather yourself and think about that for a while. We are talking about Seattle Mariners legend, Ken Griffey Jr. If you grew up in the 90′s then Junior aka The Kid was probably one of your idols. If he wasn’t, then I don’t know if we can be friends. He hated the Yankees, he had his own video game, he pretty much invented the backwards hat look and he had the sweetest swing in the league. I can only imagine how smooth his golf swing will be.
If you are just a golf fan and could care less about baseball then it is still a remarkable opportunity. How often do you get the chance to play a famous course like Pinehurst? It is the venue for next years U.S. Open, after all.
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.
