Founded by PGA professionals with the goal of making golf more relevant, fun and welcoming to the whole golf community, the interactive scoring platform was well received by guests and Tour Professionals at the event.
Commenting on the experience, 2013 PGA Tour winner, Billy Horschel, said: “We need to have one of these scoring/comment devices in every pro-am in the US.”
As part of the day, the professionals were offered the unique user experience of interacting with one another via the social media function while on the course, as well as allowing fans to interact with them through the live scoring platform and live game feed.
The interaction between players added a new dimension to the pro-am, as the teams exchanged jokes and comments as they plotted their way around the testing layout in Sheshan.
Speaking about the success of the day, Mikko Rantanen, CEO of GameBook Inc said, “It has been great to see everyone engaging with Golf GameBook and creating some unique content for the fans to follow. Being part of a World Golf Championship gives us credibility and great exposure on the world stage. It is pleasing to hear all the positive feedback from some of the world’s best players.”
