Game Golf, a market-leader in wearable technology, is calling out all golfers currently tracking their golf rounds on their platform to test their game against the pros.

Joining their staff of brand ambassadors that already includes Graeme McDowell, Jim Furyk and Lee Westwood is newcomer Chesson Hadley, the PGA Tour’s 2014 Rookie of the Year. In recognition of this important addition to the team, Game Golf will issue it’s first- ever Pro-Am Par Challenge.

Using the Game Golf online platform, amateur golfers can see how their games measure up against some of the best golfers in the world by joining the Pro Am Par Challenge and posting a round between Wednedsay, March 4, and Monday, April 6. They will compete against Hadley, who will be at the Puerto Rico Open defending his title. Hadley will be using the device to record his final practice round at the event.

Hadley, along with the rest of the Game Golf community participating in the challenge, will have plenty of competition from the likes of McDowell, Furyk and Westwood who will all post their practice rounds on the same day at the WGC Cadillac Championship in Doral. At the end of the competition, the winner will be determined based on the total number of pars scored during their posted round. A bit of advice - go low!

“We are excited to welcome Chesson into the GAME GOLF family and, in honor of that, created the GAME GOLF Par Challenge which allows our platform users to compete with Chesson and our other professional tour players,” said John McGuire, CEO of GAME GOLF. “Only through GAME GOLF’s community and the social aspect of the platform can amateurs compete virtually with the game’s best no matter where they are. The GAME GOLF Par Challenge embodies the future of the game and how fellow golfers and even professionals will interact and compete globally.”

Game Golf first hit the market in 2014 with their innovative product that allows golfers of all skill levels to tag their golf shots during an individual round and post their statistics to the company’s online platform. While other pre- existing technology apps only allowed you to capture your score along with some other basic metrics such as fairways hit, greens in regulation and total putts, Game Golf went much further with advanced analytics that revealed your distances and shot dispersions for every club in your bag.

Game Golf, available for both Android and iOS mobile devices, is dedicated to changing how golfers to connect to their game, PGA Professionals and their friends through wearable technology. The small, lightweight device is worn on the player’s waist and individual, feather-light sensor tags attach to the top of the grip on each club. Game Golf automatically records the course, location on the hole, club used, club distance, and accuracy as the golfer plays. Golfers can then see their game and club performance to help them improve online at GameGolf.com.
