Ping Golf's App on the Apple Watch

Demo the new Ping G Series clubs for a chance to win an Apple Watch

On the heels of the Academy Awards, close your eyes and let your imagination run wild by picturing this.

On the left of the stage, all of the new Ping G Series clubs approach the podium. Drivers, fairways, hybrids, irons, all of them.

On the right side, 25 Apple Watches™ make their way to center stage, walking single file (as we all know watches are able to do).

And then from the back of the room after walking up the Red Carpet with cameras flashing, you enter the theatre.

But as you approach the stage, you are told by emcee Chris Rock that you don’t have to pick just one, but have an opportunity to leave with both the new Ping clubs and the Apple Watch™ (camera cuts to the audience in a standing ovation)!

Well, maybe a little bit of an exaggeration, but not much.

The Golf Shot GPS app on the Apple Watch

Working in conjunction with our friends at Ping Golf, from March 10th through March 13th, when you visit one of our stores and demo the new Ping G series, your name will be entered for a chance to win one of 25 Apple Watches™ that we’ll be giving away for that 4 day period!

Who wouldn’t want to take a free chance to win one of these state of the art smartphones on your wrist?  Straight from the Apple’s marketing material, with one of these technology gems you can “receive and respond to notifications in an instant, track your daily activity, control your music using only your voice and pay for groceries just like that.”

But, away from the marketing page and onto the golf course, here are just a few of the many apps that are available for the Apple Watch™ that can help you with your game:

  • The Ping App – This app combines some of the functions of Ping’s current iPing app, a putting-focused tool that includes stroke analysis, develops a putting handicap and provides putter fitting. The new app also utilizes the accelerometer in the Apple Watch™ to analyze your full swing tempo with individual clubs, both on the course and during practice sessions.
  • GolfShot GPS + Scorecard + Tee Times – As the title says, a GPS device, scorecard and the ability to book tee times and pay by Apple Pay™ all in one app.
  • Track My Golf – TrackMyGolf apps use the built-in motion sensors of the Apple Watch™ to automatically track and analyze your swing like never before. No additional hardware required!
  • Golf Now – Book tee times and receive golf deals at over 6,000 courses with the largest online tee time provider.
  • The Masters Tournament – This app won’t get you playing privileges at Augusta National, however you will have access to up-to-the-minute scoring, tee times and be able to keep an eye on Amen Corner

Not only will you be registered for a chance at winning 1 of the 25 watches we’ll be giving away, on top of that you’ll have a chance to test Ping’s new G Series clubs,“Fast and Forgiving,” their best ever.

Remember, you only have 4 days, Thursday March 10-13th and you can register at all Worldwide Golf Shops locations.

Who knows, that dream could become a reality.
