What Chris Joyce, Head of Tournament Operations for The PGA of Great Britian Says About SkyPins

“A SkyCaddie gives players more information than a sole distance to the pin, and we place great value on our long-standing partnership with them. Their latest innovation, SkyPins, now creates an enhanced tournament experience for PGA Professionals who participate in the Association’s national schedule. “It is a fantastic service, very easy for golf clubs to use, and you can personalise the pin sheets according to the name of the competition that day. All players get a colour pin sheet including info about greenside penalty areas and bunkers, and those with SkyCaddies can also synchronise their devices to view the tournament pin positions before each day’s play – thus getting an electronic version of the pin sheet on their SkyCaddie screen. “The PGA already uses SkyCaddie’s ground-mapped data when setting the pin positions for National events, so by using SkyPins on their SkyCaddie they are directly downloading the work done by our PGA tournament staff.”
