Driving range technology experts Toptracer are giving golfers all around the world the chance to take on The Old Course at St Andrews during Open week, in the latest edition of its 9-Shot Challenge global tournament series.
To coincide with the historic 150th staging of The Open Championship, the 9-Shot Challenge will be taking place exclusively on Toptracer Range platforms from July 9-17. Participants will hit approach shots on nine different virtual golf holes at St Andrews, as they vie for the top spot on global leaderboards.
Testing golfers’ approach play, participants will see where they rank in real-time throughout the duration of The 150th Open Championship – with a selection of prizes up for grabs.
In addition to the 9-Shot Challenge, golfers can now virtually play the Old Course at St Andrews exclusively at Toptracer’s 550-plus global driving ranges, allowing more golfers than ever before to test themselves against the world’s most famous course.
The latest 9-Shot Challenge, along with the addition of the Old Course to Toptracer’s Virtual Golf game mode represents Toptracer’s commitment to growing the game of golf by making even the world’s best-known venues more accessible, and connecting them with communities across the globe.
We are hugely excited to offer golfers around the world the chance to compete virtually on the Old Course, as the world's best players tackle it at The Open.
