Flutter Entertainment-owned FanDuel Group has expanded its range of golf betting options with the integration of IMG Arena’s Golf Event Centre.
The addition of the Golf Event Centre opens up a number of new betting markets for users. These include closest-to-the-pin, longest drive and other stroke-by-stroke bets.
The Golf Event Centre also allows users to track each shot in real-time, view hole profiles and see course maps. In addition, FanDuel customers will have access to a customizable live leaderboard.
The golf betting tool will be available to FanDuel users from the FedEx St. Jude Championship, which begins on August 10.
“By integrating Golf Event Centre into our sportsbook platform, we can offer fans access to a robust catalog of live markets that will give them new ways to engage with the sport on every hole,” FanDuel president Christian Genetski said.
PGA Tour’s vice president of gaming, Scott Warfield, added: “Integrating the Golf Event Centre into FanDuel Sportsbook will be a massive win for golf fans. They will have a robust offering of betting options to choose from as they tune in to see their favorite players and tournaments.
“The Golf Event Centre promises to be an exciting addition to the FanDuel platform, and we appreciate the contributions they have made to help us grow engagement in the game of golf.”
