PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. -- New this year, fans can play along and join the excitement at No. 17 by tweeting who they think will be closest to the pin in each group, each day of the competition. Votes will be aggregated for each group and displayed on the video board at No. 17, and fans’ creative tweets will be highlighted there as well, giving them a chance to “see their name in lights.”
THE PLAYERS Closest to Pin 17 is easy to play. Fans watch the action on 17, then tweet or text their guesses for who will be closest to the pin in each group. Results of this informal twitter poll will be displayed on site, as well as by following @ClosesttoPin17.
Just Tweet or text 40404 with your guess using #17(FirstInitial)(LastName). For example, if you think Rickie Fowler will be closest to the pin in his group, use #17RFowler. Guesses are accepted up until the group approaches the 17 tee.
