LONDON, ENGLAND: VPAR Live Golf Scoring is to partner the World Corporate Golf Challenge (WCGC) at this year’s 2014 World Final. After the success of VPAR Live Golf Scoring at the last two World Finals, the WCGC are delighted to once again announce VPAR as our Official Scoring Partner in Sotogrande, Spain.
VPAR’s interactive, game-changing technology provides players with real-time leaderboards on the course, in the clubhouse and live online. Their technology is trusted by golf clubs and event organisers across 20 countries and five continents. VPAR supplies over 750 events each year ranging from Corporate Golf Days, Charity Golf Days, Club Championships, Amateur and Pro Am Tournaments. VPAR was also recognised this year at the Sports Technology Awards, winning ‘Best Sports App’.
Jason Stoop, Managing Director, VPAR Live Golf Scoring said, “VPAR have been working with WCGC for the last few years and off the back of the huge success of supplying the live scoring at the WCGC 2012 World Final, we are thrilled to now be the official scoring partner of WCGC across the globe. WCGC and VPAR have similar goals in looking to bring a competitive edge to corporate golf days and we are proud to be working alongside the WCGC team to achieve this goal.”
Over 30 teams will be taking part at this year’s World Final at La Reserva Club De Golf, Sotogrande from the 1st – 6th July 2014, and they will all be taking full advantage of the VPAR scoring system.
For Harry Lloyd, Event Director at the WCGC, “VPAR Live Golf Scoring has partnered our event for the last two years and we have received nothing but praise from the competitors who have used the system. In a Stableford Points event like the World Corporate Golf Challenge, there is nothing better than having access to live scoring during the tournament rounds. The organising team, the players, and the Golfing World TV crew will all hugely benefit from it during the week.”
VPAR, also for the Corporate Cup
This year’s World Final will also see VPAR Live Scoring used at the Corporate Cup Invitational, a new event that was launched at last year’s World Final. A Ryder Cup style event, captained by WCGC Ambassadors, will take place alongside the main event and will be participated in by WCGC license holders, invited guests, sponsors, and media.
Harry went on to say: “We are delighted to have VPAR at this year’s Ryder Cup style Corporate Cup Invitational. This is a new event that we began for the first time last year, but it will be the first time VPAR will be scoring it. When both corporate teams line up against each other, both the captains and players will have access to the match scores throughout the two days. If the event comes down to the last few matches, both teams will know exactly what they need to do, all courtesy of VPAR. We are delighted to have VPAR at the 2014 World Final and are looking forward to some memorable moments.”
