Stanford Men's Golf scored its qualifying rounds for the 22nd Amer Ari Invitational in January with live scoring and leaderboards made possible by the free GameBook Live Golf Scorecard iPhone app - and has since continued to live score their qualifying rounds with GameBook. The team now also engages their fans by sharing the live leaderboards on the team's social media pages.
- GameBook enabled us to be the very first collegiate team with live scoring during a team qualifying event. It certainly added a great deal to the fun of the day, especially when birdies were flying on the back nine and the low round title came down to the last hole, says Stanford Men's Golf Head Coach Conrad Ray. Â - Loving the GameBook for our play. It just doesn't make sense to do it any other way. The guys love to know where they stand when everything is on the line. It's more fun that way, continues Assistant Coach Philip Rowe.
Friends, family and fans of the players and the team can now follow and comment on the games live on the Internet or through their own iPhones. Â - GameBook was extremely proud to provide live scoring for Stanford. The team has an impressive record with 8 national championships, says PGA pro and GameBook's CEO/co-founder Kalle VÃ¤inÃ¶lÃ¤. Â - GameBook also enables college players and everyone else to collect personal statistics to improve their game and compare them with other players.

This is the first time in the history of golf that technology allows everyone to share their on-course experience live with friends and family.
