ESPOO, Finland, June 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
GameBook, Dormy and Nike Golf announce the launch of Dormy Major Saturdays on June 18, 2011. This is the first ever nationwide open golf tournament in Sweden - players can compete against each other nationwide on any golf course.
Dormy Major Saturdays are played on four Saturdays this Summer, starting on June 18 and continuing on July 17, July 23 and August 13. To participate, a player must log-on and record their score on the GameBook iPhone application or register at the GameBook Clubhouse and enter the score manually in the player's Clubhouse profile.
Dormy and Nike Golf offer free downloads of the iPhone application in Sweden and also sponsor prizes for every Dormy Major Saturday. They include rewards not only for good results but also for "fun" results such as "the most number of bogies". This is intended to make everyone's game more enjoyable. Each Dormy Major Saturday's prize category is not revealed until the following Monday.
GameBook is the developer of the GameBook real-time scoring system and ground breaking social technology platform for golf, intended to make golf more social, fun and enjoyable for all. The GameBook product family includes the GameBook iPhone App, available from the Apple iTunes App Store. The iPhone application includes an intuitive real-time score card, built-in traditional and fun game formats and well as statistics. The GameBook Clubhouse, a free online community for golfers, takes the social and sharing aspects of the iPhone application to the next level. At the Clubhouse, you can follow and comment on your friends' games real-time from wherever you are, share photographs from the course as you play, store your scores, and compare your golf statistics with those of your friends.
- We are delighted to be able to join forces with Nike Golf and GameBook to offer this fantastic experience to our loyal customers and Swedish golfers in general, says Mats Hedlund, Managing Director of Dormy. - This will be the hottest topic in golf in Sweden this year!
- Together we want to offer Swedish golfers something new and innovative in the world of golf, continues Tuomas Mäki, Nordics Manager at Nike Golf. - We at Nike Golf see golf as a sport and this type of special partnership matches perfectly with our thinking and intentions. Furthermore we are thrilled being able to create excitement around golf here in Sweden during the Major weekends while the world's best golfers compete elsewhere for their own Major titles.
