-Press Release, Wayne, Pa.
Golf Genius Software has released a new set of features to GolfLeagueGenius.com that will enhance live scoring, leaderboards, and other key functionality.
“Since the initial launch of GolfLeagueGenius, these new features make up our biggest release to date,” said Mike Zisman, CEO of Golf Genius Software. “We are proud to introduce sophisticated live scoring and real-time leaderboards for all tournament formats played within an event. These enhancements take us to a whole new level of tournament operation and give social golf leagues the look and feel of a professional tournament.”
With this release, golfers and online spectators have the ability to view live scoring for all formats played within a single event (e.g., a tournament that incorporates individual stroke play, skins, and a net better ball of partners). There are two distinct types of real-time leaderboard views: a TV display format for group viewing on large screens, where scrolling of all information is automatic, and a user-controlled display of real-time leaderboard via a web browser on PCs, iPads, iPhones and Androids. In both cases, viewers can see summary results and detailed hole-by-hole scores.
Real-time scores can be entered by golfers or others using the GolfLeagueGenius.com free apps for iPhone and Android, as well as high-speed data entry on the GolfLeagueGenius web site.
GolfLeagueGenius.com is the efficient way to organize golf leagues and weekly groups. Hundreds of amateur and professional leagues across North America are using the software to run their leagues and provide a fun experience for golfers.
“Our goal is to provide golfers of all ages and abilities a best-in-class experience,” said Billy Condon, Director of Marketing for Golf Genius Software. “Our range of GolfLeagueGenius users highlight how customizable and functional our product is. Teens in The First Tee, golf pros in PGA of Ontario events, and groups of middle-aged amateurs at private and public courses are all enjoying the benefits of GolfLeagueGenius.com.”
Featuring the broadest library of tournament formats in the industry, leagues can play numerous tournaments within a single event as well as tournaments over multiple rounds, with the ability to customize formats from the bottom up. The pairings feature, based on proprietary algorithms, is designed to pair by custom parameters and season-long scheduling can be completed instantly.
In addition, each league receives a custom website to display tee sheets, photos, message boards and more. It is this custom website where golfers can access live scoring and leaderboards and share links with family and friends.
These new features add great value to golf leagues, and are attractive for those organizing one and two day tournaments. “While we have been focused on the golf league market, our customers have made it clear that their demand for single and multi-round tournament software is well met by GolfLeagueGenius.com,” Zisman said. “The requirements for league software and tournament software are very similar, and our customers have enthusiastically adopted GolfLeagueGenius.com for tournaments.”
