Walk Up music comes to the Web.com Tour
And there's a nice little twist as well
There’s some innovative thinking coming out of the Web.com Tour’s Digital Ally Open. It’s Walk Up music.
If this is a concept that you are unfamiliar with, Walk Up music is already well established in Major League Baseball, and when a new player comes into bat he is accompanied with a blast of his chosen tune.
But this is a first for golf, and they’ve got nice little twist to it as well. Music will be played on the Par 3 seventeenth hole, but it will only be the player who knocks his ball closest to the hole who gets his nominated tune played.
