World Champion Golfer Adam Scott launches Pin, a golf app designed to make the game more accessible.
Adam Scott and the team at Upswing Labs have launched a new golf app, Pin which has been in the works for a few years.
The app is multi-faceted providing golfers with a way to access golf courses, keep scorecards and track performance with statistics, and keep up-to-date with golf news lifestyle articles, coaching and fitness tips, and view up-to-date leader boards from around the globe.
Pin is available on Apple iPhone from the App Store in Australia and New Zealand from Wednesday 29 November 2017. Pin is completely free to use.
Given the majority of smart phones users, an Android release will no doubt be coming soon. Pin will launch in the US in 2018.
More from the official press release:
Designed to appeal to a broad demographic, Pin’s cutting-edge technology and exclusive content – Pin has collaborated with industry leaders around the world to amalgamate the best in golf news, photography, video and training – providing all users with access to leading information at no cost.
“As a professional golfer with a passion for the game, my job is to help expose the game of golf to the widest possible audience, an audience where perhaps golf has not been before. In this day and age, the Pin App is the best medium to do just that,” said Scott.
“From the global golf club atlas to swing training, nutrition tips and tracking your stats, Pin places the world of golf in the palm of your hand. The best thing though is that it’s free, which is a great appeal to me – a new and innovative golf technology platform available to anyone and everyone with an interest in the game,” said Scott.
For golfers, Pin is a modern way to view, plan and interact with the game. For golf clubs and club professionals, Pin offers a new channel to expose their products and services. Developed to help clubs and golf pro’s in their marketing, the global golf club atlas provides each and every club around the world with their own fully-editable profile.
“Ultimately, the aim is to provide users with one platform through which they can access everything they love and want to learn about golf, whilst at the same time creating a global golf community to which Golf Clubs and Club Pro’s have a direct line of communication.” said Scott.
The vision for where Pin may go is broad. Pin 1.0 is the first installment in a dynamic suite of golf related apps all aimed to help expose the game.
