Golf Genius Launches Amazon Fire TV Stick Leaderboards App

10.10am 19th February 2019 - New Products

Golf Genius, the leading global provider of cloud-based tournament software, has launched an application on Amazon Fire TV that enables users to display leaderboards on television screens.

The easy and efficient solution enables golf tournament organisers to cast their Golf Genius competition leaderboards straight up to any television enabled with an Amazon Fire TV Stick in a streamlined way, and without the need for a dedicated computer.

Craig Higgs, Managing Director of Golf Genius International, said: “We are always looking for new and innovative ways to enhance the tournament experience for our clubs, resorts and associations. Television leaderboards have become increasingly popular among golfers as part of the post-round clubhouse experience, and the ability to seamlessly display leaderboards using an Amazon Fire TV Stick makes life easier for the organiser while simultaneously increasing player engagement at events.”

To get started, users simply need to insert an Amazon Fire TV Stick into any television with an HDMI port, open the Golf Genius Fire TV app, and connect their leaderboard via either the Golf Genius mobile app or by entering a round GGID into the Fire TV app. Once the leaderboard is set up, the settings are controlled via the Fire TV remote to optimise scroll rate, font size and alignment.

Clubs interested in receiving a free Golf Genius demo should contact Craig Higgs at craig@golfgenius.com.
