NFL Legend Brian Urlacher and 2014 FedExCup Champion Billy Horschel
Ambush Foursome for Closest-to-the-Pin Challenge with Free Golf for Life on the Line During NBC Sports’ Super Bowl Pre-game Coverage
ORLANDO, Fla. – GolfNow, the leading online tee time booking and golf course technology and services platform, has announced a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for one lucky golfer to win Free Golf for Life. The sweepstakes was launched this week, running through Monday, April 13, and will award one winner with a complimentary foursome once per month courtesy of GolfNow. To launch the sweepstakes, GolfNow has produced a national spot centered around “Lucky Chuck” and his unlucky leprechaun co-worker, which will begin airing nationally on Sunday, Feb. 1.
“GolfNow is constantly trying to showcase golf in exciting new ways, and we are seizing that opportunity once again through NBC Sports’ high-profile platform this week,” said Jeff Foster, senior vice president, GolfNow New Media Group. “In the past, GolfNow has arranged dream foursomes with Graeme McDowell and Keegan Bradley, and has sent winners across the country on a private jet to play golf on both coasts in a single day. The idea of winning Free Golf for Life is something that until now avid golfers have only dreamed of, and GolfNow is going to make someone’s dream a reality.”
In addition to the sweepstakes, NBC Sports’ Super Bowl XLIX pre-game coverage will include a short segment starring NFL legend Brian Urlacher and PGA TOUR winner Billy Horschel, who will ambush a lucky foursome selected for a closest-to-the-pin challenge with Free Golf for Life on the line. If any individual bests Urlacher’s effort on the par-3 6th hole of Troon North Golf Club in Scottsdale, Ariz., they win Free Golf for Life. And, if they beat the reigning PGA TOUR FedExCup Champion, the entire foursome wins Free Golf for Life. This segment is part of the promotional platform to support the launch of Free Golf for Life sweepstakes, open to all.
