PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – The PGA TOUR has partnered with Twitter to allow fans to participate in a one-of-a-kind vote leading into The Presidents Cup 2015. Through Twitter’s voting card feature, fans of the International and U.S. Teams can choose from two clothing options per team, voting for what they would like to see Team members wear when they face off on the first day of competition on Thursday, October 8.
“This is an exciting promotion for The Presidents Cup and its fans around the world,” said Executive Director Matt Kamienski. “Of course, the competition on the golf course is the focus, but there is also tremendous interest in the players and the pageantry that surround The Presidents Cup, and that includes the team apparel. We’re looking forward to engaging our fans in this unique opportunity to have a say in what the players will look like for Day One Foursomes in less than four weeks’ time.”
Fans will be able to tweet without ever leaving their timeline through Twitter’s new voting card feature that is similar to online polls. It’s as simple as clicking on the image of the uniform they want to see their team wearing. Once a vote is cast, the voting card is published to the fan’s personal Twitter account and can then be seen on the timeline of all his/her followers allowing that person’s followers the opportunity to participate as well. The poll opens Monday at 7 a.m. ET and ends on Tuesday, September 15, at midnight. Results will be announced on Wednesday, September 16.
“Empowering fans to vote on Twitter and actually influence the on-course product reflects the PGA TOUR's commitment to innovation on our platform,” said Andrew Barge, sports partnerships manager for Twitter. “We're excited to see fans have a say in The Presidents Cup uniforms and watch it unfold live on Twitter.”
