Turf professionals can putt for prizes with the new 28-day #PosterityPuttingChallenge


Post a video of a 28-ft. putt on social media and use the hashtag for a chance to win

GREENSBORO, N.C., USA, Aug. 31, 2020 – To celebrate the 28-day disease control offered by recently debuted Posterity® XT and Posterity Forte fungicides, Syngenta is excited to introduce its new, 28-day #PosterityPuttingChallenge. Starting Sept. 1, turf industry professionals can challenge each other to make a 28-ft. putt for a chance to win prizes. 

“While Posterity brands hold strong for up to 28 days, sinking a 28-ft. putt isn’t quite as easy," explained Stephanie Schwenke, turf market manager for Syngenta. "By introducing the #PosterityPuttingChallenge, we want to connect people with a little competitive fun while demonstrating the power of Posterity brands.”

Here’s how the #PosterityPuttingChallenge works:

1. Between Sept. 1-28, 2020, post a video on Twitter or Facebook attempting to make a 28-ft. putt
  • Get creative – it can be on a course, or you can set up something to mimic a hole in a backyard or other place
  • Easily measure the distance by walking 28 steps from the start to your hole
  • Don’t worry – it’s not required to actually make the putt!

2. Include the hashtag #PosterityPuttingChallenge in the post
​​​​​​​


All participants who follow these steps will automatically win two sleeves of Posterity-branded golf balls and be entered into four weekly drawings for a YETI® Hopper Flip® 12 Soft Cooler. Participants can also challenge their industry colleagues by tagging them in the posts to pass along the challenge.

Posterity XT and Posterity Forte provide powerful disease protection that can last for up to 28 days. Featuring ADEPIDYN® technology (pydiflumetofen), the Posterity brand products feature three active ingredients from three different FRAC groups to control dollar spot, spring dead spot and more on cool- and warm-season turf.

“These latest evolutions of the Posterity brand provide powerful, long-lasting control of key diseases with added broad-spectrum and resistance management benefits,” said Steve Dorer, fungicide brand manager for turf at Syngenta. “I personally took the #PosterityPuttingChallenge and can show you how tough it can be to sink a 28-ft. putt. Fortunately, Posterity brands offer golf course superintendents a more reliable way to achieve up to 28 days of success on their golf courses.”

To join in on the #PosterityPuttingChallenge, follow the steps above between Sept. 1-28. Visit GreenCastOnline.com/PosterityPuttingChallenge for giveaway details and Official Rules.
