Secret Golf, Inc., one of golf’s fastest-growing digital media companies, today announced a partnership with Insperity, an industry leader in providing human resources and administrative resources to small and medium-sized businesses for over 30 years, teaming together on an interactive application that will significantly enhance the fan ex-perience at this week’s PGA TOUR Champions event, the Insperity Invitational golf tournament near Houston.
The Insperity Invitational Interactive Golf app includes detailed course strategy on the tournament venue, The Tournament Course at The Woodlands, from Steve Elkington, a winner of 10 PGA TOUR events including two Players Championships and the 1995 PGA Championship. The app also includes a GPS-enabled yardage guide with superb graphics and flyovers by Best Approach, Inc. as well as a Putt Predictor from Strakaline, Inc., allowing fans both at the event and at home, to see which way and how much balls will move on a green before professionals make a putting stroke. Daily pairings, weather, contests and spectator information along with push notifications from sponsors can also be found in this innovative and exciting app.
“We are excited to partner with Insperity on this new venture. This app is fantastic and really brings the golf fan closer to the action than ever before. Fans will now have the same information that a Tour player has,” Elkington, the co-founder of Secret Golf said.
“We are continuously seeking innovative ways to deliver a world-class experience for our fan base,” said Jay Mincks, Executive Vice President, Sales & Marketing, Insperity. “Insperity Invitational Interactive is a game changer. It brings the spectator outside the ropes into the minds of a Tour professional while standing over a shot on the Tourna-ment course and understanding what they are thinking before addressing the ball, while also providing all of the relevant tournament information our fans need in the palm of their hand.”
A unique invitational format on the PGA TOUR Champions, the Insperity Invitational is an award-winning tournament that features one of the top fields on Tour with eight cat-egories of eligibility to compete in the prestigious event. Two-time PGA TOUR major winner, John Daly, will try to successfully defend his title from last year against a star-studded class that includes three-time Insperity Invitational winner, Bernhard Langer, Jesper Parnevik (2016), Ian Woosnam (2015), Esteban Toledo (2013) who will be cel-ebrating the fifth anniversary of his first Tour victory, Fred Funk (2012), and Jay Haas (2006).
The 2017 champion is also one of 13 PGA TOUR major championship winners in the field that includes Langer, Woosnam, Tom Kite, Mark O’Meara, Sandy Lyle, Lee Jan-zen, David Toms, Tom Lehman, Corey Pavin, Mark Calcavecchia, Jeff Sluman and Bob Tway.
