Live Twitter Chat With Bubba Watson, Justin Rose and Hunter Mahan
By Stephanie Wei under PGA Tour

Guess what’s special about today? Okay, I’ll just tell you — it’s the World Golf Championship-Cadillac Championship’s Social Media Day! To kick things off, Bubba Watson, Hunter Mahan and Justin Rose will engage in a live Q&A via Twitter this afternoon starting at 4:15pm ET for about 15-20 minutes.

@reply your question to the three Tour players (@bubbawatson, @justinrose99 and @huntermahan) and they’ll do their best to answer them via Twitter. You can also pass along your questions to me and I’ll ask them in the media room.

The hashtag for the event is #PGATourFan and the Cadillac Championship Twitter feed is @CadillacChamp.

With yesterday’s announcement of the new Tour cell phone policy (fans can now stay connected on the golf course), the Cadillac Championship will be the second event where spectators will be allowed to use their phones. The tournament is launching some intriguing social media initiatives that will be announced later this afternoon (stay tuned!).

Good to see the Tour initiating more programs in line with new media. After all, everybody’s doing it. Let’s see how this Twitter chat goes…get your questions ready and/or drop yours in the comments section below!
