PGA Meets FanDuel

PGA TOUR bettors now have more access to get in on the action with this new partnership between the golfing league and FanDuel sportsbook.

The deal will bring forth all-new sports betting content on the FanDuel app that is dedicated to the PGA, including analytical breakdowns for upcoming golfing events.

“We have long admired FanDuel’s brand, product, and marketing strategies as well as the leadership position it has taken since the legalization of sports betting in 2018,” said Norb Gambuzza, SVP, Media and Gaming at the PGA TOUR. “We are excited to bring FanDuel into the PGA TOUR’s Official Betting Operator program as we continue to engage new fans in this rapidly growing space.”

FanDuel has seen a large boom in golf betting activity over the last few months. In the last 12 Sundays, gold has recorded the highest single event handle on the FanDuel sportsbook.

The total sports betting handle for golf in New Jersey in 2020 has already eclipsed the entire 2019 handle. This occurred even including the 13 weeks of no PGA TOUR events due to the coronavirus pandemic causing shutdowns. This shows a clear attraction for gold sports betting activity.

“Golf interest is up on FanDuel, so we are excited to deepen our relationship with the PGA TOUR,” said  Mike Raffensperger, CMO FanDuel Group. “We will now be able to offer unique gaming experiences on our platform, special TOUR related promotions for our customers and an enhanced content experience across the TOUR’s properties to really prove to bettors across the nation that there are More Ways to Win at FanDuel.”

This partnership further pushes legal sports betting in the mainstream sports world.
