GolfLogix announces 'Win a Round with Zach Johnson' sweepstakes

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- GolfLogix - the No. 1 App for Golf and a world leader in GPS and club-tracking technology - announces a sweepstakes where four grand prize winners will receive an expenses paid trip to play 18 holes with Zach Johnson, the 2007 Masters Champion and a nine-time winner on the PGA Tour.

Existing GolfLogix Champion members - and those who join or upgrade by September 3 - will automatically be entered for a chance to tee it up with the two-time U.S. Ryder Cup team member on October 22, 2012, at Johnson's home course, the acclaimed Frederica Golf Club in St. Simons, GA. The package also includes two night's accommodation, air transportation, dinner and ground transfers.

"This is a one-of-kind experience to learn Zach's precise on-course approach to game management - which has led to some amazing accomplishments," says GolfLogix President Pete Charleston. "We work tirelessly to incorporate the latest technologies and create features our 1.75 million members of all skill levels repeatedly use to play better golf."

Easily downloaded from www.GolfLogix.com or App Stores such as iTunes, Android Marketplace and BlackBerry App World, the free GolfLogix GPS app is compatible with more than 60 smartphone models. It provides accurate distances to the center of the green, high-quality imagery of each hole, scorekeeping and in-round, pro-level stat tracking for more than 30,000 courses worldwide. For less than $20, an upgraded annual Champion membership provides golfers with patented club tracking, aerial flyovers, digital yardage book notes and distances to any location on the hole - including pin position, hazards and landing zones.

"The GolfLogix community is filled with passionate golfers who want every bit of detail before hitting a shot - just like we do on Tour," says Johnson. "I'm excited to share the day with the four winners who believe as strongly in the app's features as I do."

To enter the sweepstakes without purchase, golfers must enroll as a free GolfLogix Club Member and submit a 3" x 5" card containing name, address, telephone number and email address. Entry must be postmarked during the promotion period and received no later than September 8, 2012. Full official rules, terms and conditions may be found at www.golflogix.com/sweepstakes.

All GolfLogix levels include access to the Member Clubhouse, the No. 1 online golf community where millions interact through social forums, offer challenges to fellow golfers and maintain an indexed handicap. Personal web pages for each user also store performance statistics, so every round can be analyzed by fairways hit, greens in regulation, putting, shot trends and more.
