Golf fans will have the chance to bet shot-by-shot during the FedEx St. Jude Championship.

FanDuel will integrate IMG Arena's Golf Event Centre into its sportsbook on August 10 during the kickoff of the FedEx St. Jude Championship. The company will give wagerers a 25% profit boost on bets placed on a live market during the tournament in celebration of the launch.

Bettors will also have a chance to win $5,000 in Bonus Bets if they show a bet slip at the FedEx St. Jude Championship as part of the bunker shot challenge.

FanDuel represents the PGA Tour as its official betting operator. Company President Christian Genetski said the partnership gives FanDuel the opportunity to give golf fans access to better quality betting through shot-by-shot wagers.

He commented, "As an Official Betting Operator of the PGA Tour, we're continually looking for innovative ways to elevate the golf betting experience on our platform for fans during their favorite tournaments.

"By integrating IMG Arena's 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."

PGA Tour VP of Gaming Scott Warfield described the upcoming launch is a huge win for golf aficionados.

He said, "Integrating the Golf Event Centre into FanDuel Sportsbook will be a massive win for golf fans, who will now 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."
