 BOSTON (April 11, 2017) – Major League Lacrosse (MLL), the premier outdoor professional lacrosse league, and PlusOne Sports, the creator of FlingGolf, announced today they will continue to partner for the 2017 MLL season. The partnership will build off the lacrosse community’s growing participation in this rapidly growing and complimentary young sport and will be showcased prior to the 2017 MLL All-Star Game in Sacramento, Calif.

“After last year’s successful introduction of FlingGolf to MLL players and fans, it is exciting to welcome back PlusOne Sports to participate in the league’s activities for the entire season,” MLL Commissioner David Gross said, “including, the MLL All-Star FlingGolf Open prior to our All-Star Game on July 8. The players are looking forward to participating in what will be a fun and competitive event before they hit the lacrosse field.” 

FlingGolf is an active hybrid of golf and lacrosse that is played on a golf course, with a golf ball, and with a simpler set of rules than golf.
