Web.com Tour Event Experimenting With Walk-Up Music

The Web.com Tour struggles to keep up with the bigger tours in regards to views and popularity, so they occasionally need to experiment with how they conduct their business.

 
At least for this week, they may have hit on a winner. At the Digital Ally Open, the Web.com Tour is playing walk-up music on the par-3 17th hole for the player who hits the ball closest to the pins.

Before the tournament, players were given a form where they could write their song preference if they are the one who gets the walk-up music. The first round never teed off on Thursday, due to poor weather, so Friday will be the first day trying the music.


Bullets

  • This week at the Digital Ally Open, a Web.com Tour event being played at Nicklaus Golf Club at Lionsgate, a course near Kansas City, walk-up music is being played on the par-3 17th hole for the player in each group closest to the pin.
  • Players were given forms before the tournament with their song request, if they are the player who gets the music.
  • Scott Langley tweeted a picture of his form and asked for requests, which was largely met with joke suggestions from other players. Langley went with Dwayne Johnson’s “You’re Welcome” a suggestion from his daughter. His backup pick was one of the joke ones, Shania Twain’s “I Feel Like A Woman”, which was suggested by PGA Tour golfer Kelly Kraft.
