VPAR Live Golf Scoring Delivers Ultimate Golf Experience At Volvo World Golf Challenge

LONDON, January 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

The 2012 World Final of the Volvo World Golf Challenge was this year contested at the beautiful Zimbali Country Club in South Africa. Alongside the ever-changing weather the course, which offers a mixture of stunning ocean and forest views, provided the scene for a thrilling competition.

The official scoring for this year's event was provided by VPAR Live Golf Scoring. The revolutionary and world leading live scoring solution, allows players to follow a real-time leaderboard on handheld scorepads, setting up a nail-biting finale for those on the course, spectators in the clubhouse and supporters live online in their home countries.

The final day saw yet more strong winds and rain returning to the coastline course. If anyone is equipped to handle such conditions, it is the British and as the final drew to a close, three of the leading four players were representing Britain. Peter Jones, Mark O'Shaughnessy and Colin Ledwith were all within touching distance of the trophy.

As the leaders progressed a crowd had gathered in the Volvo Lounge, glued to the VPAR Live Leaderboard, a winner was needed. As the last group was walking down the final fairway, all the supporters watching knew that Peter Jones had won and a huge roar erupted.

Staffan Jonson, Project Director at Volvo Event Management, was really pleased and said, "It was a brilliant tournament this year, and the players loved using the VPAR live scoring devices. It was especially fun in the Volvo Player's Lounge where they were watching the scores coming in live on the TV - everyone knew what was going on with the last few groups still on the course, and created a real buzz of excitement."

The champion Peter Jones also had some kind words to say after his stunning victory: "Being in the last group and following via the live VPAR scoring  added quite a bit of tension to the game as the scores on the last day would indicate, most definitely a nerve biter. VPAR most definitely adds a new and definitive perspective to the game, certainly a good addition."

It was a fantastic tournament, crowning a fine year of golf.
