PHOENIX (November 16, 2015) - Today PING launched a new app that includes the
Golf Workout, an Apple Watch feature engineered to capture and track fitness
data, swing tempo and on-course statistics.
The PING app also houses updates to iPING, a putting-improvement tool that
attaches to a putter shaft using an iPING Cradle, and works in conjunction with
iPhone. In addition, there’s a new PING trivia game created to share the brand’s
rich heritage and its focus on innovations that help golfers play their best.
The iPING app is a free download from the App Store, with the full Golf Workout
experience available as an in-app purchase.
“Our Golf Workout for Apple Watch presents a tremendous benefit for golfers
without disturbing the tranquility that so many of them seek through the game,”
said David Solheim, PING Vice President. “We’re strong believers that electronic
technologies can play a positive role in the future of golf, but they need to be
delivered in the most organic and unobtrusive way possible. By utilising the
power of Apple Watch, we have taken an already desirable device and crafted an
experience that renders the inherent appeal of golf more accessible and helps
golfers improve their game via sensor data.”
According to Solheim, PING’s in-house app development team focused on bringing
more visibility to golf’s health benefits by using key exercise metrics gathered
from Apple Watch. Golf Workout records heart rate, step count and calories
burned in either the Swing Practice or Play Golf modes.
“One of the benefits of Apple Watch is the ability to monitor your fitness
activity. This has led to the popularity of Apple Watch owners challenging
themselves to ‘close their Activity Rings’ on a daily basis,” Solheim said.
“With the Golf Workout feature, you receive Workout credit during your round or
while you’re practicing. It’s a great way to bring the fitness element of golf
into the general conversation of the many benefits golf has to offer current and
In the Swing Practice mode, golfers can also time their backswing and downswing,
providing a measure of tempo to help hone their swings for improved results on
the course. The Play Golf function allows the stat-focused golfer to track
important data, including fairways hit, greens in regulation, and putts per
round. You can also keep score using the PING app on Apple Watch.
“We look for technologies that improve a golfer’s experience and ultimately help
him or her play better and enjoy the game more,” Solheim added. “We see Apple
Watch as a way to further that strategy of innovation in a harmonious manner.”
The iPING feature has been updated with a new graphic interface and provides
golfers two options that lead to improved putting. In Practice mode, golfers can
focus on improving key attributes of their putting stroke, including tempo. The
Putting Handicap function analyses a series of five putts to determine a
consistency score, which equates to a handicap patterned after the traditional
handicap system (lower is better). Each five-putt session is stored for
comparison as golfers challenge themselves to lower their Putting Handicap (PHcp).
PING is offering new iPING cradles to fit the iPhone 6/iPhone 6s and iPhone6
Plus/iPhone 6s Plus.
“When it was introduced five years ago, iPING quickly distinguished itself as an
important putting-improvement tool used by golfers of all abilities,” Solheim
said. “The new version simplifies the experience while offering the same benefit
of improving consistency on the greens.”
Users can also learn the story of the PING brand through a trivia game that
tests their knowledge of the company’s rich history, tour staff and product
