Leeds-based Whole In One Golf teams up with PGA EuroPro Tour
Sports technology firm Whole In One Golf has renewed its TV tech contract with the PGA EuroPro Tour.
The Leeds-based company is set to supply added on-screen technology for the TV coverage of the competition, which is aired every summer on Sky Sports in the UK and on various partner channels around the world.
The 2016 tour will mark the fifth consecutive year that Whole In One Golf has provided the PGA EuroPro Tour with enhanced graphics packages, including 3D flyover visuals and yardage information.
This year, the company has expanded its offer with new features to enhance Sky Sports’ coverage, such as shot trackers and green contouring, across the 16 two-hour programmes.
Whole In One Golf director Dan Weir said: “Every year the PGA EuroPro Tour grows in stature with the cream of Europe’s fantastic young golf talent all vying for that shot to take their place on the PGA European Tour. As the standards on the course get better, then so must the coverage of it improve.
“We’ve added a host of new graphics and features to the coverage this year and we’re thrilled that our advanced technological capabilities will once more be put onto a worldwide broadcasting stage.”
PGA EuroPro Tour’s director of operations, Daniel Godding, commented: “We’ve worked very closely with the team at Whole In One Golf and we’re delighted that they’ve raised the bar once again with a range of new on screen features that will enable golf fans in the UK and across the world to enjoy an unrivalled experience of the PGA EuroPro Tour.”
