The Players Championship’s Fan clubs are a part of the landscape for the event week at the Sawgrass Players Stadium Course. Now, by becoming a part of the fan club for reigning champ Matt Kuchar, fans can benefit from a tour of The Players that will start 6th May to 12th May, with up to 3 friends.
The Players and Bridgestone Golf are advertising an online competition for fans to be a part of the “Kuch’s Krew.” Through 28th February, people can go to pgatour.com/theplayers to see the instructions and upload a video that says about why they would like to be a part of the Kuchar’s gallery for 2013 Players.
A judges’ panel will see the videos based on originality and creativity and select three entries. pgatour.com visitors can cast a vote for their favorite video clip in March and the winning “Krew” will be declared in early April.
The travel deal includes food expenses, airfare, rental car, hotel and tickets for the event. The bunch of fans also will have the opportunity to meet Matt Kuchar as well as attend VIP events. At least 1 of the group members have to be twenty five years or older.
Kuchar is among the favourites to retain his title, with Unibet making him their number one choice, and plenty of fans backing him by having an online bet at this stage of the season, when the odds are at their longest.
This fan club trend started several years ago along with “Funk’s Punks,” – a bunch of friends and fans of the 2005 Players champ Fred Funk. A bunch of Ponte Vedra High students started following 2008 Players champ Sergio Garcia, naming themselves as “Sergio’s Boys.”
