The Social Side of Golf – The Masters of Social Media

Twitter GolfFor the big names in golf, Twitter is a great way to keep the fans posted on the goings on in the golfing world. With the golfers in the world getting ready for the US Masters, there’s a bit of a buzz on the social networking site for all things golf.

Regardless of whether you know how to use a hash tag – or indeed whether you know what one is – it’s well worth getting a Twitter account just so you can keep up to date with the happenings at the US Masters. Many of the best golfers are pretty active on the website and tend to update their accounts pretty quickly when they’ve made one of the strongest drives, or missed a hole by mere centimetres.

Exactly how popular golfers are can be found out on Twitter too. This infographic has worked out the ratio between tweets about the golfers that are negative, and those that are positive. Though of course, exactly what users of the networking site think of the sportsmen doesn’t particularly affect their performance on the green.

It’s not really much of a surprise that Tiger Woods sits at the top of the list when it comes to who in the golf world has the most Twitter followers. Possibly one of the most famous golfers in the world, he’s the main go-to for golfing fans on the social networking site. So who else makes the top ten list?

Check out this infographic created by the guys at Your Golf Travel to find out who’s in the top ten most followed on Twitter, what kind of things they tweet, and their positive to negative tweet ratio. And if you’re not following them yet for the latest developments in the sport, what are you waiting for?
