The DP World Tour has today been announced as the winner in the Best Use of Social Media category at the International Sports Awards 2021. The award is given to a sporting organisation that has shown industry leading innovation in engaging and building up new communities through its social media content.
It follows another terrific year for the Tour’s social media team, with the awards judges focusing on three landmark pieces of content. Firstly, Angry Golfers, a mockumentary style film centred around an anger management therapy session that reached more than 12million people on the Tour’s social media channels. Chase the Ace 50/50 saw Rory McIlroy and Justin Thomas compete to see if they could make a hole in one if given 50 attempts. This surpassed Angry Golfers to become the Tour’s most engaged with video of all time. Finally, The Farthest Golf Shot Caught in a Moving Car, an ambitious Guinness World Record attempt in partnership with Callaway, received a record 39million video views.
Keith Pelley, Chief Executive of the European Tour group, said; “By producing clever, funny and relatable content, the DP World Tour has earned a reputation as a sporting social media innovator. Our content in 2021 has typified this – achieving significant reach, engaging new audiences, and authentically profiling commercial partners. Industry accolades are fantastic validation of our hard work so we’re delighted that the International Sports Awards have named us as having the best use of social media this year. It was tough competition, so well done to our fantastic team of producers and digital specialists”.
A new career as a mental coach, alongside some of the best golfers in the world to drag them to success and support them in times of difficulty. This is what Michael Phelps, the most decorated athlete in the history of the Olympics, seems to have undertaken (also in the name of friendship). A great golf enthusiast, many now define him as the “secret weapon” of green totems such as Jon Rahm, number one in the world ranking, and Jordan Spieth, the Texan who, after a long period of crisis, is back in 2021 to amaze.
“He’s a good guy, he’s been through a lot as a sportsman and he’s the greatest Olympian of all time with a lot of tricks up his sleeve. I’m not going to reveal what I asked him but I can say that he has helped me a lot in the last period. “. These are the revelations of the Spaniard Rahm. For the legendary swimmer, nicknamed ‘the Baltimore Shark’, important words also came from Spieth, today 12 / o in the world ranking. “The mental aspect is something I’ve worked on a lot with him lately. I’m really lucky to have him around. Besides, he’s a great lover of golf and having him now more and more in our world is an added value.” This is the opinion of Spieth who yesterday, alongside Phelps, played the Pro-Am of the BMW Championship, the second event of the Play-Offs of the Pga Tour starting today in Owing Mills (USA), Maryland.
