In May 2016, PlayON Fantasy Golf was announced as the official Fantasy Golf game for the PGA European Tour. As the time they were the only Daily Fantasy Sports site offering contests based on the European Tour (although DraftKings have since launched European Tour contests) and the official partnership is a huge boost to PlayON Golf.
How do I play PlayON Fantasy Golf?
To play in PlayON Fantasy Golf contests you just need to sign up an account at www.playon.co
One of the fantastic features of playing PlayON Fantasy Golf is that they host ‘Weekly Fantasy Golf’ contests just as DraftKings UK do, however they also host ‘Daily Fantasy Golf’ contests with results based on performance in a single round of golf. Taking into account tee times, early round performance and many other factors may mean a different strategy is required for playing in PlayON Daily Fantasy Golf contests as opposed to Weekly Fantasy Golf contests.
