At FanBeat we are always striving to listen to our player community and deliver new gaming features that make playing along with your favorite sport or team that much more engaging and enjoyable. Through our partnership with Golf Channel and Callaway Golf, we are very excited to introduce for the first time both video game questions and a 10-minute trivia challenge for the current golf season.
Callaway has tapped media personality Amanda Balionis and tour players like Henrik Stenson and Kevin Kisner to record video predictive-play and trivia questions that are posed to FanBeat players during breaks in the action of live tournaments. Henrik Stenson, for example, asked FanBeat players, “Golf returned to the Summer Olympics for the first time since 1904. What medal did I win during the 2016 Rio Games?” Points then count down as players hurry to get their answers in. (The answer is “Silver”. Justin Rose won Gold.)
The new 10-minute trivia challenges have offered golf fans a fast-paced, trivia-only game (10 questions in 10 minutes) that provides a challenging test of fans’ knowledge of the sport. Along with the live-action games, Callaway has loaded up the prize board with their latest equipment: Epic Flash drivers, full sets of Apex Irons, Toulon Garage custom putters, PM Grind 19 Wedges, and more.
The response from the player community to these new features has been fantastic. If you have ideas on how we can continue to improve the experience and make the games more fun to play, we’d always love to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org.
