New Open App brings action closer
Golf Australia has released the new Emirates Australian Open Official iPhone App for this year’s championship.
No matter where you are in the build-up or during the event, you can stay up to date with live scores, breaking news, photo galleries and plenty more of the action.
While Justin Rose, Adam Scott, Tom Watson, Geoff Ogilvy, Greg Chalmers, John Senden and many more are in action, you can follow every eagle, birdie and bogey as the battle for the Open intensifies.
Designed by Golf Australia to provide users with a comprehensive championship experience, the App carries live scoring, draws, event information, tee times, photo galleries, course guides, player profiles and latest news - a complete tournament guide in your pocket.
Golf Australia’s Digital Director John Sutherland said access to high quality information on mobile devices was now fundamental in golf and international sport.
“This is a key part of our overall fan experience at the championship and allows us to provide instant information to anyone who’s following the Emirates Australian Open. More than that, golf as a sport lends itself to this digital technology. It’s a lot easier when you’re out at The Lakes and you want to watch Adam Scott, knowing you’re only a couple of clicks on your phone from finding out what hole he’s just played so you can catch up to that group,” Sutherland said.
“The Emirates Australian Open is Australia’s most prestigious golf tournament and a significant sporting event in the Asia Pacific region over the summer. Golf Australia will continue to enhance the website and mobile experience of our National Opens and more broadly for general golf enthusiasts throughout 2013” Sutherland said.
The App ensures you’ll always know who’s leading the championship – no matter where you are.
