TO TWEET OR NOT TO TWEET…?
That is the hot question this week on the verge of the McDonald’s LPGA Championship.
We’re probably not going to see tweets like: “Really nailed it with the driver, now thinking 7 or 8 iron,” or “Looking like this putt breaks left to right. Whaddya think, tweeps?” The players at this week’s McDonald’s LPGA Championship in Havre de Grace, Md., (@McDsLPGA) won’t be tweeting on the course, but they’re getting a lot of attention – and encouragement from the top, including LPGA commissioner Carolyn Bivens – to continue engaging with fans before and after their rounds via Twitter.
We got a taste of their tweets last week when the State Farm Classic was played, and now we’ll get an insider’s view during their play just up I-95 at Bulle Rock. @AtlanticGolf is following all of them and we encourage others to do the same, as interaction between players and fans can only be good for the game!
We counted 33 LPGA golfers on Twitter, including last year’s McDonald’s champion Yani Tseng (@YaniTseng on Twitter) who tells us via Twitter that she’s already had dinner with Taiwan Ambassador Jason Yuan and that Bulle Rock is in great shape, but watch out for the 4-inch rough!
