European Tour Daily Fantasy Golf has arrived and PlayOn are the brand to take the plunge. They announced a partnership with the European Tour last week and the Irish Open was the 1st event with tournaments open publicly.
We're still waiting for Draftkings to become available outside the UK but PlayOn have stepped in to the open market space - a space many of you know I think has huge potential. You may have seen the "PlayOn Daily Fantasy" Logo on advertising boards around the K Club at the weekend or if you were there, visited the stall they had set up. On the European Tour site itself, there's also plenty of advertising for it.
Competitions are unsurprisingly small in terms of $$$ in the early days but there were some nice overlays to take advantage of in the Irish Open markets. From an outlay of circa €70, I returned €405 courtesy of a 3rd in a 1 day and 5th in the €22 overall tournament 3k guaranteed event. Over 500 people played in the freerolls so the growth is already there.
PlayOn is open to draft teams for the BMW Championship and if you don't fancy a 4 day tournament event, they also offer daily round by rounds.
