[prMac.com] Stamford, United Kingdom - In this, a Ryder Cup year, Golf GameBook, the free smartphone app featuring a golf community, live scoring, tournament manager and social chat, is calling on golfers to experience the excitement of head-to-head golf with the release of its new 'Reds vs. Blues - Team Matchplay' game format. 'Reds vs. Blues - Team Matchplay' features within the latest iOS and Android versions of Golf GameBook and is the perfect format for golfing friends, groups or societies wishing to create live, tournament-style matchplay events, managed directly from a smartphone.
Mikko Rantanen, co-Founder and CEO of GameBook Inc., said, "We are all anticipating a great Ryder Cup battle at Gleneagles this year between Europe and the USA and we hope our new 'Reds vs. Blues - Team Matchplay' game will inspire tens of thousands of golfers to create competitive, fun competitions themselves, live on their own smartphones."
The size of a team, starting with two players, is not restricted on the GameBook platform and the easy-to-use functionality makes it possible to create multi-group matchplay tournaments in singles and doubles formats. Once set-up is complete, via 'Game Manager' on the Golf GameBook website, all players need to do is enter hole-by-hole scores via their smartphone and the app will display real-time live scoring, match-by-match, all presented in a simple, but sophisticated, 'Reds vs. Blues' design.
Golf GameBook was founded by PGA professionals with the goal of making golf more relevant, fun and welcoming, and is the fastest-growing golf community in the world with more than 700,000 app downloads. GameBook offers a sophisticated, but easy-to-use platform for any golfer, golf club or golf tournament organizer to set up live scoring for all types of golf event and is the only scoring app to offer social interactivity. It has also been widely used by some of the best golfers in the world competing in the pro-ams at the Volvo Golf Champions in South Africa; Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship; the PGA Tour's Honda Classic and last year's WGC-HSBC Champions at Sheshan International Golf Club in China.
