Earlier today, we highlighted about the 3 year technology agreement between Microsoft and PGA TOUR, and they are working together to create a number of universal Windows Apps. In addition to desktop and mobile apps, PGA TOUR is now working with Seattle startup Taqtile for their HoloLens app. Taqtile is one of the seven firms selected to be part of the Microsoft HoloLens Agency Readiness Program.

Geekwire had a chance to try out this HoloLens app, read their experience below.

I strapped on the HoloLens device for my demo and soon had a bird’s-eye three-dimensional view of TPC Sawgrass — the course that hosts The Players Championship — which appeared on the physical wooden desk in front of me.

Using my fingers to interact with the content, I was able to compare player shot data from last year’s tournament, with colored lines showing individual shot patterns and an accompanying scoreboard to show me how players performed.

The demo was definitely cool. It was neat to interact with the course from above and see the hole-to-hole shot data for individual players — much more effective and engaging than looking at an Excel spreadsheet, for example.
