A TRIO of new Android golfing apps have been developed by Microsoft for the PGA tour.

The golfing body currently employs more than 300 volunteers for each event to collate scores and statistics, as well as measure distances of shots using lasers.

The ‘Walking Scorer’ app allows volunteers to instantly see and change player and course data on the go.

The ‘Laser Operator’ app gathers data from laser sensors used on the greens while with the ‘Grid View’ app digitally determines the distance of a shot on the green and inputs the position of the ball if a laser operator is unable to see it.
