Tiger Woods to miss host duties, but AT&T, WorldGolf.com makes sure SFC, military personnel get Hi-tech treatment at Congressional
Coming off another knee surgery, Tiger Woods will miss out on his hosting (and playing) duties at the AT&T National at the Congressional Country Club starting tomorrow.
“Flying, unfortunately, swells up my leg pretty good,” said Woods, who recently underwent ACL reconstruction on his left knee.
Aside from getting to see all the action, Sgt. McKay will also receive:
A Wireless Caddie from AT&T: Five-hundred smart phones will be made available for checkout daily throughout the tournament courses and at the entrances. Spectators will be able to obtain statistics, course maps, pairings and live scoring.
Access to the AT&T Digital Clubhouse: Fans are invited to interact with AT&T products and services, get a GolfTEC swing analysis and test their skills in a Long Drive contest at the interactive tent located at the 11th Fairway. At the AT&T Digital Clubhouse, fans also can access AT&T broadband products, watch high-definition satellite TV, check e-mail, obtain results of the swing analysis and Long Drive contest on the AT&T blue room. A patio area is also available for viewing the fairway of hole 11.
Access to the AT&T Technology Tent: Located at the Front Nine Grove, the tent will be equipped with AT&T wireless, broadband and satellite TV. Fans will have access to wireless service to place phone calls.
Our hats are off to AT&T for going beyond in their willingness to show their appreciation for those in uniform and those that have served their country.
