The 2015 British Open is being held this week at St Andrews, the home of golf. Its getting very exciting with two days to go and now with a Monday finish for the second time in the tournaments history.
I have been working this week on the Golfzon Stand at the HSBC Golfzone. This is one of the busiest stands in the tented village at the Open with over 50,000 visitors in the week. On the Golfzon stand there were two challenges, Longest Drive up the 18th hole and a nearest the pin short game. There are three Golfzon golf simulators presented at the Doosan stand and in the HSBC Golf Zone, who are official patrons of the 144th Open. See more pictures below from the Golfzon stand.
Golfzon are featuring various programs for GDR users including Chip Shot Challenge and Longest Drive. In addition, it has installed another system in at the Rule, a opub in St Andrews which will be promoted and operated by GolfPunk Magazine, in an attempt to increase spectators participation.
The head office of Golfzon said in a statement “We are delighted to introduce the leading technology of Golfzon to The Open Championship. Golfzon seeks to actively participate in various golf tournaments and events around the world in order to enhance the global brand awareness and market share,” says Tommy Lim, Vice President of the America and Europe business division at Golfzon"
