Golf fans rejoice: PGA Tour has released an exclusive app (opens in new tab) for Windows 10 desktop. Simply called PGA Tour, the app serves up whatever you need to keep track of your favorite golfers, stats, standings and more. There's even support for Cortana interactions and Windows Ink on board.
Here's a look at some of the app's highlights:
- Rotating 3D hole and shot visuals
- Data visuals for stats, scores and player performances, including a graphical display of strokes gained.
- Reimagined player scorecards.
- Cortana powered voice commands.
- Windows Ink for on-screen telestration with sharing via Twitter, Facebook, mail, messaging, etc.
- Live Tiles that deliver leaderboards and FedExCup standings to the Windows 10 Start Menu.
Unfortunately, there's no word on whether this app may make its way to Windows 10 Mobile, but it looks like a solid option for desktop users at least. Interested? If so, you can grab the PGA Tour app for Windows 10 from the Windows Store now.

just in time for the Phoenix/ Waste Management Open too.
This will work great on my Surface. The old PGA app is OK on my Icon.
Great timing. Was looking for a PGA App the other day. Happy that it is now finally here. *yay*
Bad thing though is that there is no Mobile. :'(
Ugh. I've been waiting for this on Mobile. Don't get me wrong, I'm happy to see it arrive on PC, and know it can lead to a mobile app. I gather the PGA and Microsoft have some sort of partnership, which is good for us. Questions: Is is UWP and does it stream live video?
It's definitely a UWP app: it has a Windows 10 build 10586 as a minimum requirement and no "uses all the system resources" permission.
I'm going to, for sure, leave a review asking for a Windows 10 Mobile version of the app.
I would hope so, as it looks like MS has an endorsement deal going with Surface and the PGA, or at least on CBS, as both Faldo and Nantz have one on their desk. How and if they actually use them is a bit of an unknown, but the devices are rather prominent.
It appears that this W10 desktop app is linked to the app on Windows 10 mobile. When I went to the Windows store to download the desktop app, it showed that I already owned the app and had posted a rating. Hopefully plans are in the works to update the mobile app to match the UI of the desktop app.
I wouldn't be surprised if it didn't come to mobile.
UWP has been a dud due to the anemic mobile market share.
No one is really building then even tho MS stated it would be so easy..... Windows on ARM can't come soon enough.
If it has a small window size then it has everything to run on mobile. That's what they have to add.
Seems nice. Bringing golf to the people.
Very nice UI.
