You can now experience a PGA TOUR event in a new way and get deeper insight into the shots hit by the best players in the world.
The PGA TOUR’s Augmented Reality Experience presented by Mastercard offers fans one of the most exciting and unique on-course experiences in golf. This cutting-edge technology was fully integrated into the PGA TOUR app back in March for THE PLAYERS Championship, and consists of 12 TOUR events this year, including all three FedExCup Playoff events ending with the TOUR Championship.
The experience provides fans on-site with the ability to replay shots from their favorite players in AR, directly from their device. Fans also can dive into the performance of a particular shot with accompanying data provided around apex and distance to the pin. There is also the ability to replay shots from previous rounds and compare shots between players.
Then it’s time to enhance the tournament experience, where fans can simply point their iPhone to their favorite tee box or green and dive straight into the action. It also provides a great opportunity to capture content and share it on social media channels.
