Finnish Company & Audi Introduce Nationwide Tournament (with App)

Anyone who has spent time playing video games knows that a huge part is knowing how you are doing against others. Thanks to Internet-enabled console, the others could be anywhere on the Web. A company from Finland has taken that head-to-head scoring concept and applied it to the world of golf — REAL golf (like on a course with grass and divots and bumpy greens).

Their flagship product, also named GameBook, is a real-time scoring system and ground breaking social technology platform for golf, intended to make golf more social, fun and enjoyable for all. The GameBook product family includes the GameBook iPhone App, available from the Apple iTunes App Store.

  • The iPhone application includes an intuitive real-time score card, built-in traditional and fun game formats and well as statistics.
  • The GameBook Clubhouse is a free online community for golfers that takes the social and sharing aspects of the iPhone application to the next level. At the Clubhouse, you can follow and comment on your friends’ games real-time from wherever you are, share photographs from the course as you play, store your scores, and compare your golf statistics with those of your friends.
  • Seems like the only thing missing is trash talking…

    To demo/promote how it works GameBook teamed up with Audi Finland to launch of Audi Super Saturdays. The inaugural event was held 4 June. According to the company’s press release, “it was the first time ever in the world of golf” that players (open to anyone) could compete against each other nationwide on any golf course. Audi is kicking down prizes too and not just for good results. For example, there is a prize for the “most number of bogies.” The intent is to make everyone’s Saturday game more enjoyable. To participate, a player must log-on and record their Saturday score on the GameBook iPhone application or register at the GameBook Clubhouse and enter the score manually in the player’s Clubhouse profile.

    The concept is innovative. It will be interesting to see how the pilot run in Finland goes. This could be coming to golf courses near you in the not so distant future.


    Mizuno Launches Swing To Win Challenge

    On Monday, Mizuno USA, announced the launch of their JPX-800 Swing To Win Challenge, a national contest allowing consumers to put their current irons to the test and experience the significant distance gains that can be realized through their new JPX-800 line of game-improvement irons. To validate its claims, Mizuno Golf recently had 100 consumers take the challenge with 99 of them hitting the JPX-800 6-iron further than their current 6-iron, with the collective group averaging a 12.48 yard increase in distance. Mizuno is now offering golfers across the country the ability to see for themselves at local golf retailers and Mizuno demo events, and the chance to win one of 800 prizes, including a Dream Round of golf with Mizuno PGA Tour stars Luke Donald and Charles Howell III.

    From now until June 30, 2011, consumers can visit participating golf retailers or one of Mizuno’s demo events at local golf courses across the country, and take the challenge, comparing the performance of their current 6-iron against a JPX-800 6-iron. The distance gain results and a variety of “swing DNA” metrics are then provided to each consumer, along with a special entry code, for entry at the Mizuno Swing to Win Challenge microsite ( Upon entering their Swing to Win Challenge data, each consumer will be automatically entered for a chance to win one of 800 prizes, including the grand prize – an ultimate golf prize package, including an all-expense-paid trip to Atlanta for a Dream Round of golf with a guest and Mizuno PGA stars Luke Donald and Charles Howell III. Other prizes include Mizuno golf equipment and accessories.

    Mizuno’s JPX-800 irons were designed to be its most forgiving and explosively long irons to date, and the first model to bring Mizuno’s global JPX technology platform to the United States. The significant distance benefits of the JPX-800 irons are achieved by combining MAX COR Technology, Hot Metal™ Face construction, and an exotic pocket cavity to hit the maximum allowable limits for energy transfer. Simply put, the JPX-800 irons utilize the world’s most advanced game improvement technologies to help the mid to high-handicap players score better than ever before.

    Note: Stacy Lewis, who captured her first LPGA tour victory at the first major of the year, defeating the number-one ranked player in the world, Yani Tseng, at the Kraft Nabisco Championship, was using Mizuno clubs. She averaged over 280 yards using the Mizuno JPX-800 Driver. Also in her bag were the JPX-800 Pro irons, the Mizuno Fairway Wood, Hybrid, and MP T-11 wedges.

    Golfsmith at it Again: $1M Club Giveaway…

    Golfsmith just announced it is teaming up with TaylorMade Golf and a trio of golfers, two-time U.S. Open Champion Retief Goosen, Sergio Garcia and Sean O’Hair, for a new national promotion tied to the U.S. Open Golf Championship.

    Dubbed “Pick a Pro and Win,” it gives customers an opportunity to win new TaylorMade drivers, free of charge, if Garcia, Goosen or O’Hair, is victorious at Pebble Beach. Now through June 16 golfers who purchase one of three new TaylorMade drivers – the R9 Super Tri, Burner SuperFast or the R9 460 driver – at any Golfsmith store across the country will have the purchase price of their TaylorMade driver fully refunded by Golfsmith if the player they choose – Garcia, Goosen or O’Hair – wins the U.S. Open.

    Golfsmith is running this promotion just months after Phil Mickelson’s Masters win resulted in the nation’s largest specialty golf retailer giving away a $1 million in golf clubs.  For the TaylorMade Golf promo, Golfsmith has purchased an insurance policy.  They also had a policy for the Mickelson giveaway.

    In addition to the Pick a Pro promotion, Golfsmith is giving away $50, $75 and $100 gift cards when consumers purchase specific TaylorMade drivers, the R9 SuperTri, the R9 460 and the Burner SuperFast, respectively.

    With Tiger Woods returning to the PGA Tour at The Masters (April 5-11), I couldn’t be happier. Yes, the whole situation over the past few months has been disappointing to say the very least, but we need to let the man do what he does best… GOLF… and when he returns at The Masters I’ll be glued to the TV set, watching him every step of the way.

    Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2011 Contest

    To help ‘celebrate’ the world’s #1 return to the course, I thought it may be fun to run a little contest. Up for grabs? Well, that’d be a copy of Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2011 for the console of your choice! The game will be available in-stores on June 8th, so yeah, you’ll have to wait a little while to get it… But good things come to those that wait! The game will be available at launch for the Wii, PS3 and XBOX 360, so the winner will simply have to let me know the console they prefer, and the game will be on the way. Deal? Deal!

    Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11

    Win a copy of Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11!

    Now, on to the details on entering. The concept is simple. We’re going to see who can predict Tiger’s round and total score as closely as possible. This should be fun. 1 point will be awarded for a correct round score, and 4 points will be awarded for a correct total score. In the event of a tie, a custom tie-breaker contest will be held during Tiger’s next tourny to break it. Sound good? OK, now here are the steps you’ve got to follow to enter, PLEASE READ CAREFULLY:

    1. Follow us on Twitter. It takes literally one second. Follow us @GolfCrunchLive.
    2. Tweet the contest to your followers AT LEAST ONCE. Again, this only takes a few seconds.
    3. Leave a comment to THIS post, with your round scores and total score, in this format: 70 69 67 71 = 277
      (Note: If you think he’s going to miss the cut, format your entry like this: 75 74 = 149)

    That’s it. 3 easy steps, and you’re in.

    Can you enter multiple times? YES. Once every 24 hours.
    That said, anyone blatantly hitting up the contest with entry after entry on the same day will be disqualified. Also, along with every entry we ask that you tweet about the contest to your followers. So, if you’re entered 5 times in the contest, I better see at least 5 tweets about the contest! Sound like a fair deal? Good!

    At the conclusion of The Masters, I’ll go through all entries to determine a winner. In fact, I’ll probably put together a contest ‘leaderboard’ of sorts to show off all entries and scores entered. Should be fun to see the scoring people enter!

    Once I’ve determined the winner, I’ll hit up Twitter to determine if the winner is indeed following us, and if they ‘tweeted’ the contest to their followers. If not, I’ll go down the list to the second place person and do the same.

    Sound good? Great!

    Let’s get predictin’! Follow us, tweet the contest to your followers and enter your scores here in the comments.


    Note: Cut-off for contest entries is 11:59CST on April 7th.

    Help Beatriz Recari Make the Mojo 6

    OK GolfCrunchers (or is it GolfCrunchies?), it’s time to do good by doing good again. The other day I was contacted by up-and-coming LPGA player Beatriz Recari, asking for a little help. Turns out she needs ALL of our help, which is ultimately the reason for this post. The deal? She’s trying to get as many votes as she can to qualify for the last spot in the Mojo 6.

    What is the Mojo 6?

    In a nutshell, it’s an event being held in Jamaica in which a field of 16 women golfers will battle it out for a cool $1,000,000. 15 of the 16 spots are already filled, and the last slot comes down to fan voting.

    So how do you vote? Head on over to the Mojo 6 site, click ‘vote for me’ and enter your email address. I believe only one entry is allowed per day, so come back each day to cast your vote for Beatriz or any of the other players!

    For more information follow Beatriz on Twitter @BeatrizRecari, hit up her Facebook Page, or visit her official site at

    Good luck, Beatriz!

    Buy a Set of Wilson Staff Di9 Irons, Walk Augusta This April

    Wilson Staff Di9 Irons

    Wilson Golf has started up a new contest that will intrigue anyone that has a bag full of Wilson gear. The deal? To start, you’ll need to pick up a set of Di9 irons. Once the sticks are in your bag, you can enter to win the following:

    • Roundtrip airfare for 2
    • 2 days/1 night local accommodations
    • 2 weekend golf tournament passes
    • Food and beverage
    • Exclusive Wilson Staff VIP Gifts

    The contest is open to all in the US and Canada. For more details, head on over to

    Key specs on the Wilson Di9 Irons:

    Powerful Head Design
    The club head offers a low profile and wide sole that inspires confidence at address. A lower center of gravity produces higher ball flight, while the wide sole moves weight away from the face for greater stability.

    Wilson Di9 IronsHot Face
    A thin, ultra-hot face delivers a competitive ball speed advantage for greater distance.

    Patented Wide-Tip Shaft
    The latest evolution of Wilson’s patented wide-tip technology is the softest ever produced. While the wide tip controls twisting on off-center hits, the lightweight shafts from True-Temper and UST reduce overall weight for maximum clubhead speed.

    Vibration Dampening
    A vibration-dampening urethane medallion expands the sweet spot the entire length of the face. It also serves as a shock trap that reduces vibration that travels through the hosel and into the hands.

    Note: I’ve got to say, the Wilson Di9’s are a sharp looking club. Although I prefer the look and feel of blades in my bag, the Di9 has a half-cavity look, which no doubt combines the forgiveness of a full-cavity and the shot-shaping and ‘feel’ of a full-out blade.

    A few more images of the Di9’s are below for your viewing pleasure.
