Those who are looking to take on the challenge can simply select the "9-Shot Challenge" from the game menu at a participating Toptracer location, a Toptracer-enabled Topgolf venue and on the popular WGT by Topgolf mobile golf game. 

The challenge, which expires on May 23rd, allows players to compete in a series of nine approach shots, testing their iron play skills with the first tournament ranging in distances from 66 to 156 yards.

Players can see where they stand in real-time as global leaderboards track progress throughout the tournament and the leaderboard standings will include country flags representing each player, providing a visual representation of global golfing communities.

 

 

For a number of years now, Toptracer has led the way in ball-tracking technology. In 2007, they made history when it became the first company to trace the flight path of golf balls during a major televised PGA Tour event.

Overall, the company has installed over 10,000 Toptracer Range bays in 31 countries and in April of this year, they traced over 7.5 million shots in a single day.
