There's a new PGA Championship App on Apple's App Store for iPhone and iPod touch. It will provide live video, live scoring and instant updates from next week's PGA Championship.
The PGA Championship App provides customized push notifications so fans can receive instant alerts about their favorite players’ progress. It will also offer live video of marquee groups for all four days of play and live video streaming of the Par 3 holes at Hazeltine National Golf Club.
Push notifications will provide users with instant alerts for hole-by-hole scores, completion of rounds and other breaking news. The Breaking News feature will provide frequent updates to storylines and news, and five additional notifications correspond with individual players selected by fans to follow including: Round Beginning, Round Completion, Double Bogeys (and higher), Birdies & Eagles and Hole-by-Hole Updates.
The PGA Championship App will also offer a customizable leaderboard with live scoring in an easy to use front nine/back nine format, video highlights, player information, course information, news and updates. In another first for a major golf tournament, the app will also include a real-time Trends function to highlight notable leaderboard climbs, drops and streaks.
