DP World gives used golf balls second life with first-of-its kind shipping container

DP World Container_1

DP World, the leading provider of smart supply chain solutions and title partner of the newly named DP World Tour, has created a unique shipping container that will collect and redistribute used golf balls during the 2022 DP World Tour season, giving them a second life.

Travelling through DP World’s global logistics infrastructure and network, the container will visit six DP World Tour events. Fans will be invited to donate used and unwanted golf balls, which will be redistributed to organisations that are championing golf from the grassroots up, to help grow the game globally.

By launching this campaign, DP World will not only support the development of grassroots golf but will also shine a light on how the increasing popularity of the game and the pandemic-induced supply chain challenges have impacted the sport industry.

The container, which is made from a repurposed 20-foot shipping container, can house as many as 200,000 golf balls and will weigh approximately 12 tonnes when full.

Fleetwood voted Golfer of the Month for July presented by DP World

Tommy Fleetwood

Tommy Fleetwood has been crowned July Golfer of the Month presented by DP World after receiving 44% of the public vote.

The Englishman made two start starts in July, his first at the Genesis Scottish Open at The Renaissance Club in North Berwick where he recovered from a first round 73 to post a fourth-place finish in the first full co-sanctioned event between the DP World Tour and the PGA TOUR. After a slow start, the 31-year-old would go on the post rounds of 69-66-67 in the firm and windy conditions in East Lothian.

Building on that finish, Fleetwood arrived at St Andrews for The 150th Open Championship chasing his maiden Major title.. Like the week prior, the Old Course was a firm and fast challenge for the final Major of the season. Opening with an even par 72, Fleetwood again fought back, playing the final three rounds in 14-under par to finish in a tie for fourth.

Richie Ramsay, who ended a seven-year winless drought with his win at the Cazoo Classic, was voted second. The Scotsman was no stranger to Hillside Golf Club and had this event marked on his schedule after a fifth place finish back in 2019 at the Betfred British Masters hosted by Tommy Fleetwood.

Fantasy DP World Tour

With a new look and feel, the official Fantasy game of the DP World Tour makes its return this week ahead of the year’s first Major Championship at Augusta National.

With a new look and feel, the official Fantasy game of the DP World Tour makes its return this year. The game allows fans from all over the world to take each other on predicting the top 6 players each event week, and players can still sign up for the game to make their selections each event week for the rest of the season.

This week, the eagerly anticipated 150th Open Championship will get underway at the Home of Golf, St Andrews for what promises to be a special event. An incredible field is assembling on the Fife coast, including rising stars, local heroes and returning champions.

The rules are simple: Each week, you will be asked to select a new team of six golfers for each tournament in the DP World Tour season, which you will be able to do from approximately midday (BST) every Monday. You will then have until the first scheduled tee time to make changes to you six-man team.

Once you have chosen your six golfers, you must designate one of your picks as the Captain (their points will be doubled). Only competing players will be available for selection, and with no budget, you can pick whichever six golfers you wish.

So what’s new for 2022? This year, every golfer in the tournament will be available for selection – not just DP World Tour members – but there will be a restriction on team selection this year, called the ‘Selection Cap’.

The Selection Cap prevents you from picking the best players more than a few times each season, allowing you to choose DP World Tour members to be selected a maximum of three times in a season, and non-DP World Tour members to be selected a maximum of two times in a season. Once you have reached the maximum selections for a player, they will be greyed out and unavailable, so choose strategically and wisely!

One thing to note, is that each week your team will be wiped, so you must pick a fresh team ahead of each tournament. This is to ensure that you have six active golfers in your team each week to maximise your scoring potential, but if you forget a team of six players will be randomly selected for you to ensure you still score points.
