The most glamorous moments of the PGA Golf Tour are set to be featured in an upcoming NFT collection by Autograph. The NFT platform was originally created by NFL athlete Tom Brady, who now finds himself in fine company, as legendary golf player Tiger Woods joins the advisory team at Autograph. Woods is reportedly pleased with the partnership between the NFT platform and the PGA Tour, believing that it will “create a connection between us as players and the fans.”

A Web 3.0 Hall of Fame for Golf
Sports & entertainment focused NFT platform Autograph has previously worked with R&B star The Weeknd, with the ‘Blinding Lights’ NFT collection being released to celebrate the single’s success.
Now, Autograph NFT has scored its first major sports league client. The NFT collections to be featured on PGA Tour Golf NFT will include highlights from the careers of some of the most iconic golf players, while other NFTs will serve as entry passes. According to the PGA Tour’s press release, the company will disseminate real-life event tickets, as well as digital passes throughout the NFTs.
Benefits for NFT Collectors
Although the Autograph x PGA Tour Golf NFT collection is scheduled to drop only in early 2023, NFT passes are already on sale. To give an idea of the shape these may take, the Tom Brady 2022 Season Ticket is limited to 1669 NFTs, and costs $750.
There were announced to be 3 upcoming NFT airdrops. The first of these is the Free Season Ticket Drop, which will go to the TOP 200 Tom Brady NFT collectors. Additionally, all Preseason Pass holders will receive $250 off on Season Ticket NFT purchases. Finally, Tom Brady NFT holders will gain early access to season tickets, thus providing them with the ability to choose the best deal and save up.
On the Flipside
