Watch the PGA in Live Augmented Reality
Sponsored by the PGA, PGA TOUR AR was released this week to bring coverage of the famed golf network to viewers via AR. The new app brings live augmented reality coverage to iPhones and iPads.
The launch of the app coincided with the Arnold Palmer Invitational that started on March 15th.
AR Features and More Planned
Some of the features of the app allow users to select their favorite golfers, compare shot trails and different shots from various players. Currently, only featured holes are available, but the PGA has plans to fill in the gaps and provide more AR viewing options soon.
Eventually, viewers will be able to hold up their device on the actual course and see shot trails for live or previous plays for an entire tournament.
Devon Fox, PGA TOUR Director, Digital Platform Innovation sums it up with “This app empowers us to creatively display and share data captured by ShotLink and CDW with fans in an entirely new way, utilizing the biggest AR platform in the world, we can instantly reach millions of new golf fans around the world in an exciting and fun style.”
