Mobitee GPS app to track play live at European Tour tournament

LOS ANGELES -- Mobitee GPS Golf Assistant, one of the top-rated iPhone and Android Applications for smart phones, is introducing a brand new application this weekend at a European Tour Event and you are invited to join in on the action!

A clickable LIVE TRACKING icon will be placed on the European Tour website following the first set of golfers at the inaugural Le Vaudreuil Golf Challenge, which takes place at Golf PGA France du Vaudreuil from July 25-28:

By using Mobitee Shot Tracking at Le Vaudreuil Golf Challenge, users will be able to track a player's progress on the internet, following shot-by-shot the GPS positions for each member of a chosen group throughout all 18 holes.

The following information was posted from the European Tour Website:

"On Day One, the featured group will include Julien Guerrier, who tees it up this week on his home course alongside 2011 Saint-Omer Open winner Matthew Zions, and Korea's Sihwan Kim, with all three getting underway from the first tee at 1.40pm on Thursday afternoon.

The following day Mobitee Shot Tracking will focus on the three ball of Englishman Robert Dinwiddie, 2013 Kärnten Golf Open presented by Mazda winner Dylan Fritelli, and home favourite Victor Riu, fresh off a maiden professional triumph at the Swiss Challenge two weeks ago, when they tee off at 1.20pm.

As the tournament moves towards the sharp end over the weekend, the final group each day will be followed throughout the closing 36 holes, en route to crowning the first winner of Le Vaudreuil Golf Challenge on Sunday afternoon.

It should be noted that Mobitee Shot Tracking is in beta version, and that putts under two meters cannot be displayed as a more accurate figure, but otherwise this will be a fully operational test and should provide added insight into the action at Golf PGA France du Vaudreuil.

Mobitee are already known for their Mobile Golf Assistant application which acts as a GPS tracker for people's mobile phones when playing golf across the world. The Live Tracker uses similar technology and will help Challenge Tour fans follow the action throughout all four rounds."
