CHESTER, NEW JERSEY — Things are heating up for the PGA Championship, golf’s second major tournament of the season, making it the perfect time to host a fantasy golf pool via Majors Challenge.

It looks like two of golf’s most popular players, Tiger Woods and defending champion Phil Mickelson, will be competing at Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa May 19-22. With the controversy surrounding Mickelson and the electric atmosphere Woods brings to every tournament he attends, an already big and popular event will reach new heights of excitement.

Why not get in on the action? Whether you’re the head pro at a golf club, the head of your course’s golf association, or just someone who wants to compete against your friends, setting up a golf pool has never been so simple.

Majors Challenge is the easy and fun way to lead and compete in golf pools. You choose any combination of tournaments you want to pool golf for, and Majors Challenge does the rest. Your final step, once your account is set up, is to send out an invitation to potential players. Those who register will visit your Majors Challenge page, choose their 12-man squad, and track their team’s performance with up-to-the-minute results on the LIVE leaderboard throughout the tournament. It’s so easy!

“This year’s PGA Championship promises to be among the most memorable tournaments on the PGA Tour this season,” said platform creator Dan Pitluk. “Everyone will be captivated not only by a major championship, but also by a championship that brings several compelling side stories.”

Several things set Majors Challenge apart from other sites, one of which is its golf-only offering.

“Our sole focus is golf,” said Ed Woronicz, business development manager for longtime PGA member Majors Challenge. “Other sites are pool sites that facilitate competitions for various sports. We focus on the sport that we know best, so that we can offer our customers the highest quality products.

Another feature is that the Majors Challenge team selection does not involve maximum salaries like most other sites do. In fact, there is no salary at all.

“We divide the field into four groups of players based on world rankings,” Pitluk said. “Entrants simply field the team of their choice, choosing a specific number of players from each group. It’s so easy.”

The commissioners determine what the prizes will be for the league. Participants can play for cash, gifts – or just bragging rights. Many club pros organize leagues for their members, charge an entry fee and then offer merchandise from their pro shop as prizes, or they will set aside part of the entry fee for a charity or Fund raising.

Possibility, flexibility and simplicity. It’s all part of the Majors Challenge game plan.
