PGATOUR.com is experimenting with a behind-the-scenes (or inside the ropes) look at what goes into putting on a tournament the caliber of THE PLAYERS Championship. Starting last week, the tournament has had a presence on Twitter, updating under the profile 2008PLAYERS.
During the week of the tournament (next Monday through Sunday), Twitter updates will be coming from charity and social events, the competition, and fan and volunteer perspectives to give PGA TOUR fans a chance to be part of the action without being in Ponte Vedra Beach.
Follow along with all the action and updates on Twitter at www.twitter.com/2008PLAYERS and TwitPic at www.twitpic.com/2008PLAYERS. This experiment will help decide how to cover and distribute content from future tournaments and events.
