Secret Golf, Insperity Team for Revolutionary Interactive Phone App for Invitational

(RELEASE) - Secret Golf, one of golf’s fastest-growing digital media companies, announced a partnership with Insperity, an industry leader in providing human resources and administrative resources to small and medium-sized businesses for over 30 years, teaming together on an interactive application that will significantly enhance the fan experience at this week’s PGA TOUR Champions event, the Insperity Invitational golf tournament near Houston.

The Insperity Interactive Golf App includes detailed course strategy for the tournament venue, The Tournament Course at The Woodlands, from Steve Elkington, a winner of 10 PGA TOUR events including two Players Championships and the 1995 PGA Championship. The app, developed in partnership with Best Approach and StrackaLine, includes a GPS-enabled yardage guide with superb graphics and flyovers by Best Approach, Inc. as well as an innovative Putt Predictor from StrackaLine, Inc., allowing fans both at the event and at home, to see which way and how much balls will move on a green before professionals make a putting stroke.

Daily pairings, contests and spectator information along with push notifications from sponsors can also be found in this innovative and exciting app.

“We are excited to partner with Insperity on this new venture. The app was built from the ground up with the spectator in mind, to take them inside the ropes for the first time. Fans will now have a lot of the same information that a Tour player has,” Elkington, the co-founder of Secret Golf said.

“We are continuously seeking innovative ways to deliver a world-class experience for our fan base,” said Jay Mincks, Executive Vice President, Sales & Marketing, Insperity.

“Insperity Interactive Golf is a game changer. It brings the spectator inside the ropes into the minds of a Tour professional while standing over a shot on the Tournament course and understanding what they are thinking before addressing the ball, while also providing all of the relevant tournament information our fans need in the palm of their hand.”

A unique invitational format on the PGA TOUR Champions, the Insperity Invitational is an award-winning tournament that features one of the top fields on Tour with eight categories of eligibility to compete in the prestigious event. Two-time PGA TOUR major winner, John Daly, will try to successfully defend his title from last year against a star-studded class that includes three-time Insperity Invitational winner, Bernhard Langer, Jesper Parnevik (2016), Ian Woosnam (2015), Esteban Toledo (2013) who will be celebrating the fifth anniversary of his first Tour victory, Fred Funk (2012), and Jay Haas (2006).

The 2017 champion is also one of 13 PGA TOUR major championship winners in the field that includes Langer, Woosnam, Tom Kite, Mark O’Meara, Sandy Lyle, Lee Janzen, David Toms, Tom Lehman, Corey Pavin, Mark Calcavecchia, Jeff Sluman and Bob Tway.
