While the Masters golf tournament brings fans the traditional, Augusta National pomp and circumstance, the Zurich Classic, down in New Orleans, is looking to widen the appeal of golf by channeling its inner happy place…as in Happy Gilmore. Last year the tournament introduced a two-man format (essentially team golf), but this year they are looking to make some real noise. For the first time ever on the PGA Tour, the golfing pairs will get to select their own walk-up music for the first tee intros!
Adding music to the festivities will not only solidify the Zurich Classic’s unique golf brand, but it will also further enhance the competitive team atmosphere and most importantly, it will help connect the players and the fans. Since making the announcement earlier this month, some of the golfers have taken to social media for fan assistance on song selection.
