Live scoring from this week's Golf Care Matchplay Regional Finals

April 16, 2014

The UK's biggest amateur event, the Golf Care Matchplay Championship, will provide live scoring from this week's Regional Finals for the first time. Last year the tournament introduced live scoring from the Final and on the back of that success is again working with VPAR, a leader in interactive scoring technology, to supply leaderboards from European Tour venue and host of the event, The Marriott Forest of Arden.

This will offer friends and family the opportunity to follow the progress of their loved ones. It will also keep the finalists themselves up-to-date with the action on the course, creating the type of atmosphere usually only found at professional golf events, where the players know exactly where they stand in the field and what they have to do to win. All of the scores will be updated on the Golf Care Matchplay Championship website www.matchplaychampionship.co.uk from Tuesday April 15th to Thursday April 17th.

"We work very hard to ensure the UK amateur golfers that reach the Regional Finals experience an event that very much mirrors professional ones. The addition of live scoring at the Dubai Final last year was a success and we're delighted that we can now bring the technology to the Regional Finals. It certainly helps create a memorable experience for everyone," said John Woosey, Managing Director, Golf Care Matchplay Championship.

After starting out in the first-round several months ago, this week finalists from across the UK and Ireland will play at The Marriott Forest of Arden in the hotly-contested Men's Pairs, Mixed Pairs and Men's Singles events. The North Final takes place on Tuesday 15th April and the South Final on Thursday 17th April. The winners will go on to the Grand Final which takes place in Dubai next month.
