Iain Parker, an 11-handicapper from Winterhill Golf Club, near Maidenhead, has today joined the Pro Am team of Italian stallion, Matteo Manassero at Abu Dhabi GC, courtesy of Golf GameBook.
The winner of the live golf scoring app’s Avenue to Abu Dhabi competition, was flown out with golfing pal, Chris Wilson, to tee-up alongside the young star in the pre-tournament Pro Am, ahead of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship, going up against teams led by the likes of US Open champion Martin Kaymer and European Tour stalwart, Miguel Angel Jimenez.
Record a score on the Golf GameBook app before December 28 and be entered into a draw to win a VIP experience to the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship, and play in Matteo Manassero’s Pro-Am team!
Anyone recording a score via the free-to-download Golf GameBook app over the Christmas period automatically put themselves in contention for a New Year treat… the opportunity to tee it up with the Italian superstar in the Pro-Am at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship in January.
Matteo is the youngest ever winner on The European Tour, thanks to his victory in the 2010 Castelló Masters at 17 years and 188 days. He has since gone on to win three more titles.
The Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship is recognised as one of the biggest events on The European Tour, regularly attracting some of golf’s most famous names, and Golf GameBook is the free smartphone app featuring a golf community, live scoring, tournament manager and social chat.
All golfers have to do by December 28 is play golf, record a score with the Golf GameBook app, answer one simple question at the end of the round correctly, and then they will be automatically entered into the ‘Avenue to the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship’ competition.
One lucky winner will enjoy a VIP trip to the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship, including being a part of Matteo’s team on Wednesday, January 14th. The prize also includes two Friday-Sunday hospitality passes, two return flights from the UK to Abu Dhabi and three nights’ accommodation.
While delivering on-course updates to all Pro-Am participants, the live-scoring on Golf GameBook, the #1 scorecard in golf, will also offer golf fans a rare glimpse of the action in Abu Dhabi with behind-the-scenes trash-talk in the Game Feed, which enables live chat and photo sharing between golfers on the course, as well as interaction online from anywhere in the world.
“This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for golfers to experience what it is like to play with one of the most exciting, up-and-coming talents on The European Tour, courtesy of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship.”
“With the Christmas break fast-approaching, a time when many golfers tee it up to celebrate the festive period, we would encourage everyone to record their scores via the free Golf GameBook app and, automatically, put themselves in the frame for this great prize,” said Mikko Rantanen, co-Founder and CEO of GameBook Inc.
