Toptracer PGA Championship 9-Shot Challenge Review

The Toptracer 9-Shot Challenge at driving ranges all over the world is well underway and letting golfers take on Kiawah Island, the host course of this week's PGA Championship.

The Toptracer 9-Shot Challenge began on May 15th and tests the ability of golfers in a series of approach shots that feature on the PGA Tour this week.

Alex from GolfMagic went to Hilden Park Golf Centre near Tonbridge to try out Toptracer's new game mode.



The Ocean Course in South Carolina is the longest golf course in major championship history this week, so the players are being tested to the best of their abilities. 

When you find a bay and you are ready to play, you can pick a target on the driving range and adjust the line on your Toptracer screen to aim for your chosen target. 

Your score is determined by how close you hit each of your nine shots to each pin. The distance of your ball to the hole is recorded in feet and added up to give you a total at the end of your session.

The 9-Shot Challenge allows you to see how your score compares to players from the same driving range as you and also golfers from many different countries.

Toptracer has been used to track ball flights on the PGA Tour since 2007 and it has become an instantly recognisable feature of golf broadcasting. 

The company currently have 10,000 bays across 31 countries and have tracked over 7.5 million shots. The various games and challenges that they offer can make the driving range experience even more fun.
