Top golf stories on social media outlets
Published February 2, 2009
Sports Media Challenge used its Buzz Manager service to track the most discussed stories and issues in social media surrounding golf as the season begins. Social media consists of the ways people communicate on the Internet, including blogs, message boards and social networks such as Facebook.
LPGA after Annika Sorenstam
At the end of last season, golf fans were discussing Sorenstam’s decision to retire, then discussion shifted to her wedding at the beginning of January. Fans are now asking how the LPGA will fare without one of its stars.
John Daly, or the lack thereof
Considering the reputation that Daly has built for himself, some bloggers and fans have used Daly’s suspension from the PGA Tour as comic relief. Others have debated the tour’s handling of his situation, saying any publicity is good publicity for golf, especially in light of the recession.
