Microsoft and the PGA Tour announced a technology partnership back in November 2015, and now it seems to be bearing fruit. The two have worked together to create a series of golf-centered universal apps for Windows 10, and have deployed the system throughout the Tour. Additionally, the PGA is deploying the Surface Pro 4 and Lumia 950 across its organization to use these new software solutions.
The apps built by Microsoft and the PGA Tour track several stats and other aspect of golf. PGA Tour volunteers use the Walking Scorer app on Windows 10 Mobile phones to more easily keep track of scores, as well as the Laser Operator app, which gathers data from laser sensors on the greens. There's also the Tournament Companion app which tracks tournament data.
The PGA Tour will continue to bring Microsoft technology to the organization over the next few months, including integration with the company's Azure cloud infrastructure.
