LET Fantasy Golf
Don’t forget to enter the brand new Henderson LET Fantasy golf game – a great (and free) chance to win €25,000.
As of today golf fans are invited to play the first official Ladies European Tour Fantasy Golf game which begins live scoring this week at the Evian Masters in France, 21 – 24 July.
With the tournament entry list now confirmed, players of the game can select their team of six in an effort to win €25,000 on the free online game.
The game mechanic is simple; entrants should go to the website and select the six golfers who they think will finish in the top six of the tournament, in any order.
If all top six finishers are correctly identified, the jackpot will be won. This is the first week that the LET Fantasy Golf game will officially run, and as well as the €25,000 grand prize on offer for a full house, a top of the range golf bag will be won by the team which amasses the least amount of points.
Commenting on the live launch of the new game Alexandra Armas, Executive Director of the Ladies European Tour said “After proudly announcing the new game two weeks ago we today invite players to enter their team into the LET Fantasy Golf competition.
“Launching the live scoring at a Major event such as the Evian Masters will hopefully give us an exciting start to the game, and we are looking forward to engaging with golf fans all around the world with the Tour.”
As well as the LET Fantasy Golf game, # hosts tournament tips, instructional videos and player blogs from the 2011 Henderson Rookies.
Players of the game must select their team by 23.59 on Wednesday 20th July to be eligible for the Evian Masters round.
