The PS Open Championship will have flighted qualifiers Monday – Friday.  Each flight will have a separate qualifier – 10 spots from each will make the cut

If you qualify in a higher flight, your qualifier in the higher flight tournament isn’t counted, therefore not taking the place of a lower flighted player.  I.e. if a player qualifies in flight 3 and in flight 1, the flight 1 spot is not considered. If there are not enough players in a flight to fill out the 10 spots, then there will only be that number of players from that flight.  We will not pull qualifiers from other flights to round out 10 players.

Product Update: Flight Rebalancing (March 2023)

We are always monitoring player performance, tournament results and community feedback. We’re making some changes to maintain a healthy competitive balance for our cash players.

As of March 13th, we’ve adjusted our flight breakdowns. Depending on your current skill index, your flight may have changed. If so, you likely qualify for new tournaments in your new flight.

  • The Championship flight has been tightened up to keep competition hot for our highest-ranked players.
  • The Third flight has been expanded to increase the size of the player pool and provide more opportunities to play.
  • The First and Second flights have also been adjusted, to encourage large player populations with reasonable skill variance.
  • Skill index calculations have not changed. Your skill index will continue to update as you take shots, and you may move from flight to flight. We are exploring adjustments to our skill index algorithm for the future.

As PinSeeker grows, we’ll continue watching and rebalancing our flights.

3 Tips To Creating A Warm-Up Routine To Improve Your Golf Game!

  1. Stretching before ANY swings are taken for 10 – 15 minutes. It’s important to include stretches for both upper and lower body.
  2. When you start swinging, find a way to focus on your timing and getting your upper and lower body to fire correctly. For example, I take short shots and have punctuated follow throughs.
  3. When you start taking full swings, create and use a pre-shot routine that will be used on that course. Typically this pre-shot routine will incorporate a position or a specific thought that a golfer is working on.

To learn more about warm-up routines and to create one that benefits YOUR game, check out our YouTube video below 👇🏼

New Feature: Official PinSeeker Standings

PinSeeker’s tournaments have proven to be an incredible way to compete against players all over the globe, and now they are getting even better. Starting December 1st, all tournaments will award points in an Official Standings leaderboard awarding prizes as you navigate to the top. Lookout FedEx!

Earn points. Win Cash. 💸

In addition to cash payouts, each tournament now has a Points Payout. You’ll see leaderboard positions pay cash and/or points when participating in a tournament.

What are the points good for?

You will automatically be placed on the Official PinSeeker Standings as you accrue points. You can find the standings by clicking on the new navigation icon at the bottom of the PinSeeker app titled “Standings.”

Every player is automatically entered into timebound Cups within the Official Standings. Each cup runs for a specific date range shown within the app, and for every tournament ending in that date range, you’ll accrue points for the cup. So…the more points you earn, the higher you climb on the cup leaderboards. Climb high enough, and you’ll find yourself winning cash; no entry fee is required.

Note: To show up on a leaderboard for a cup that has a purse, you must be at least 18 years of age.

Say Goodbye To Your Chunk Or Thin

Probably the most desired outcome of golfers when they get a lesson is more distance. While most players think that they need a better path or better hand position, the root cause of lost distance is solid contact. If players start to really focus on contact and nothing else, that alone should transform your game! 

Curing Your Chunk

A fat shot can kill your score. Chunking means the ball typically doesn’t go far and once you do it, you’ll tend to make the problem worse due to deceleration and poor weight transfer. The cause of the fat shot is ultimately LOW POINT control.  The low point is the bottom part of the arc where the club reaches it lowest point. With an iron the low point needs to be in front of the ball on the target side, this would mean the club is traveling down towards ground as we make contact. The only way to hit a fat shot is if the low point is behind the ball, which means the club hits the ground before ball contact.  There are many reasons poor low point positions in a players swing, but typically it is poor weight transfer.  Players that hit the ball fat typically hang back on their trail foot for too long and they cant get to lead side before ball contact. This will cause club to hit ground first. Watch the following video for tips to cure this issue!

Thin Shot Cure

The thin shot is not the worst problem to have, but if you’re a topper of the ball then this drill is a must. The only way you can hit the top part of the ball is for the club and body to raise up during contact.  We call this early extension. Early extension is when the pelvis moves toward the ball, which causes the torso to lift up out of the shot. Since our hands are ultimately connected to our torso, this means the club hits top portion of the ball. Fix early extension through the tips in the following video!

eWallet & ID Verification

Say goodbye to credit card payments for each tournament and bank account transfers every week. If you’re located in the US, your winnings will start to be deposited into your eWallet immediately after each tournament. You will be able to directly use them to play in more tournaments and be able to withdraw your eWallet balance on your own schedule at any time.

To start:

  • Once enabled, all future winnings will be deposited into your eWallet.
  • Your balance can then be used for entry and rebuy fees for future tournaments.
  • Limit of one withdrawal at a time (usually takes 2-3 days to process)
  • Limit of $500 per withdrawal

To further improve our compliance with anti-money laundering laws, ensure fair competition, and enable our eWallet system for our US players, we have to make sure that our players are who they say they are. All players will have to do a quick one-time verification of their personal information before being able to collect any further winnings. This is the same information we already have to gather for tax purposes when a player reaches the W-9 threshold amount.

The video below will take you through all of our new updates and how they appear in the app:

Skill Index & Flighted Tournaments

Tournament flights are now in effect. To begin, we have 2 flights:

Champion: 1-18
Rookie: 19 – 36

Your flight is determined by your Skill Index. Skill Index is established by a proprietary PinSeeker algorithm that uses historical cash tournament data to determine your PinSeeker skill from 1-36. To have a calculated skill index you must have played in at least 3 cash tournaments. Players with always be allowed to play UP a flight, but never down (ex. Rookies can play a Champion flighted tournament.)

Along with the flighted tournaments, you can easily find a tournament you wish to play through the filtering and sorting of tournaments. (ex. cash/free, toggling between flights, and looking at active, upcoming, or past tournaments)

Improve Your Approach Shot

There is nothing more satisfying than piping a drive down the middle with a slight draw, right?  Now you’re left with 83 yards to a middle pin and you’re already thinking about chalking down a birdie on the score card. As you approach the ball, reality sets back in and you grip the club, take your stance and hit.  You catch it fairly clean and when you get up to the green the ball is 65 feet from the hole. 

What’s wrong with this scenario above? It’s not only that we probably didn’t make birdie, but it’s the fact that we just hit an 83-yard shot as close to the pin as we hit our 7 iron. That shouldn’t be the case. The average proximity to the hole with a wedge from tour players is around 19 feet. The average for a 20 handicap is 83 feet. Honestly, I was most surprised that a 20-handicap hit the ball nearly 100 feet from hole from 100 yards. A 100-yard shot is a shot everyone should be decent at, no matter the handicap.  If you commit to working on this shot, you will notice the good habits you learn will leak into the rest of your game and you will see overall improvement throughout the bag.


1.  Do not hit your wedges 100% unless you absolutely have to. This means swing easier with these shots and grab a stronger lofted club to allow a less tense swing. This lowers the flight slightly and will allow for more control to your yardages

2. Grip down slightly, the shorter the shot the more you should grip down. This will allow you more control over the club now that your hands are closer to the balance point in the wedge. 

3. Be more aggressive and stay committed during the shot. This is accomplished by following tip 2 and allowing yourself to bend at the waist slightly more. Bending will allow us to have a steeper angle of attack to ensure we make solid contact.

Chipping Check Up

I teach roughly 30-40 people a week at our facility and I would say 1 out of every 18 lessons does a student ask for a short game lesson.  Before each session we talk about the students game and I always ask how their putting and chipping is.  Most every time they say it is pretty good and not the problem but yet they are a 10 to 25 handicap!  Let’s get real everyone needs work on their short game and most of us miss more greens than we hit. Even the best in the world only hit 70% of greens in regulation. So how do the pros shoot low scores so consistently? One, their misses are not as bad as ours. Two, they have incredible scrambling skills. My advice to you today is to dedicate more time around the practice green this year and that alone will lower your scores!

Today we are going to cover the basics for chipping around the green.  Specifically, we will touch on the chips that we have plenty of green work with. Typically, we have this shot 6 times a round but only save par maybe twice.  These type of shots may not be memorable to your or your buddies, but your buddies will remember that low score you keep shooting!


First, grab your ball and a towel then pick the shot you want to hit. Then select the appropriate wedge to get the job done.  I aways recommend getting the ball on the putting surface ASAP, the longer the ball is in the air the more can go wrong.  How much green you have should influence which wedge and shot to hit. 

Next, let’s get our towel out. Fold the towel and place 2 to 3 inches behind the ball.  The idea here is to not scoop the ball or decelerate. If you hit the towel that means the club was beating the hands at or near impact. The goal is for the wedge to come into contact with ground between towel and ball.  The towel will force you to lead with your hands through the impact zone and steepen your attack angle so that the loft and the bounce of the club can do its job.  Remember, the club doesn’t need our help.

After hitting with the towel behind the ball a few times I want to take this a step further. It is important to narrow your stance and choke down on the club around the green. Also we need to put 70 to 80 percent of your weight on front thigh/foot.  The best way to get this feeling is to put your back leg behind you, make sure your back toe is on ground for balance! This will help you get weight on lead side and keep it there.  This will cause you to steepen you angle of attack and help with deceleration issues.  Remember to check you equipment and make sure you have the tools to best fit your game.  Ask your local golf Professional for more advice on what wedges that best fit your conditions and technique.

Get Your Swing Back For Spring | Driver AOA

To get the most out of your driver you need to have a few key data points nailed down. These data points are launch angle, spin loft, smash factor. We will not talk about smash factor today but launch angle and spin loft have a few things in common and that is Angle of Attack (AOA). AOA influences both and both are critical to getting the most out of your driver.

First let’s talk about launch angle, this is the angle created by AOA and dynamic loft. Dynamic loft is the amount of loft on the club face at impact and is measured relative to the horizon. Dynamic Loft actually has a greater influence on launch angle but can be fixed by simply changing your loft on the driver. Spin Loft is the other critical data point to hitting further drives and is a 3-dimensional angle created by what direction the club is moving and where the club face is pointing at impact. Spins loft is made up of club path, angle of attack, face to target, and dynamic loft which when all are put together create the backspin on the ball. The backspin on the ball will influence overall distance and also influence how much the spin axis affect the curvature.

Today we are just going to talk about one of these data points and that is AOA. To correct your driver’s AOA, this requires a swing change and today I have just the drill for you to get immediate feedback on whether your AOA with your drive is good or not.


Use an empty sleeve of balls and place in front of your driver 5 to 8 inches. The closer you set the sleeve to the ball the more difficult the drill and the more you have to hit up on it to miss. This drill is a scare tactic and will force you to get the fill of hitting up on the ball the correct way which will decrease spin rate while increasing your launch angle! Make sure when you are making contact you are hitting the sweet spot or above sweet spot to get most out of this drill. Hitting on the bottom of driver even though your AOA is positive could have a negative affect on spin rate and increase it rather than decreasing.

Get Your Swing Back For Spring | Alignment

The foundation to the golf swing happens before you even pull the trigger on your swing.  It starts with your set up!  There are several things that make up your setup and today we will be discussing alignment.  If you ever watch a tour event and see the pros warming up on the range, you will see that each of them set up some type of alignment station to make sure their alignment is good.  The reason for this is if your alignment is off, then your body will figure out a way to compensate in the swing in attempt to get your ball to the target.  Usually, this compensation goes unnoticed and will affect your game negatively. 

 I like to set up my alignment station using 3 rods, one for the club face, one for my feet and one to help guide my club on takeaway.  You don’t have to have the 3rd rod but I find it helps my students correct any take away issues.  I also recommend that my students use the stick closest to them (foot alignment) to guide their hands on take away as well.  A lot of golfers don’t realize we have a hand plane and club plane in the swing, it is critical to keep both in check. 

Station Set Up

To begin, put the stick furthest from golfer down first and align it to target, this is for your club face alignment.  Make sure this is set up directly at target because this stick determines how well your others are set up.  Now put the foot alignment stick down 15 to 20 inches away from club face alignment rod.  Make sure these sticks are set up parallel to each other which will set your foot alignment rod slightly left of target (neutral).  Thirdly you can put the last rod down in the middle of the two rods on ground in the back 1/3 of your station.  Now you are all set to practice on a neutral alignment station.  Work on this until it feels natural to you and then you’re ready for outdoor play.

PinSeeker, a first of its kind app for golf lovers to compete and make a difference, has partnered with Sports reporter Amanda (Balionis) Renner and will host a tournament that benefits her charity, Puppies & Golf on Wednesday, May 11th in Plano.  

PinSeeker is an app that provides access to online closest-to-the-pin tournaments benefiting charities.  Unlike traditional golf tournaments, PinSeeker uses networked golf simulators to open up the tournaments to anyone in the world.  Today, it is played on simulators across North America where golfers can compete and win cash in real-time.

The app is now on E6 connect software that is utilized on many different simulator devices and indoor golf facilities. To get started, simply download the app, select your tournament, and swing at a compatible golf simulator.  View the real time leaderboard as you take your swings, and join the over 2,300 golfers winning cash each week.  Prizes are awarded down the leaderboard and all tournaments highlight the charity that benefits each time.

PinSeeker has already donated over $125,000 to charities since the launch in August 2021, supporting their mission to build a global network of golfers, inspiring players to be both competitive and socially impactful.

“We are thrilled to partner with Amanda because she aligns seamlessly with our team and our vision. I don’t think there is anyone in golf, maybe anywhere, that doesn’t like Amanda and appreciate her outstanding personality.” said PinSeeker Founder, Sean Breslin. “With such a rich history and legacy as a sport, we believe we can be a key ingredient of the evolution of golf in the virtual world while simultaneously making a social impact.”

On May 11th, PinSeeker and Amanda will be on site at the PGA Tour SuperStore in Plano (8700 Preston Road, Suite 100) competing in several tournaments that can be played throughout the week benefitting Puppies & Golf.  There will be multiple tournaments that day and a puppy adoption drive on-site through Dallas Pets Alive, where people can play virtually and still compete against Amanda to support the cause.  On top of typical cash payouts in the tournament, three players will each win a $100 PGA TSS gift card and are automatically entered to win by just playing.  Total cash available to win that week is $4,175 with $500 donated to Puppies & Golf.

“PinSeeker is one of those things where you think, how did this not exist before?”, says Amanda. “I’m excited and honored to work together and partner across our shared love for competitive golf and giving back to causes that make a difference.”

Get Your Swing Back For Spring | IRON AOA

Angle of attack (AOA) is one of those data points people ignore and take for granted due to they just don’t understand how it really works and what other areas it affects in the outcome of your golf shots.  A lot of your launch monitors do not read this data and a lot that do don’t do a very good job.  This is why I wanted to bring you a video with a simple drill that will keep your AOA in check.

First let’s talk about what AOA is.  AOA is the angle created by the direction the club is moving relative to the horizon (the ground) at impact.  Sounds simple but if you really take a deep dive into AOA and the ripple effects of AOA you will see it can be complex and is a critical data point that dictates start direction and curvature of the golf ball.  AOA help makes up something called the D-plane which is a whole other article.  Today I just want you to understand what is AOA and why it is important with your Irons to hit down.

If your AOA is poor then it will be virtually impossible to reach the goal of improving.  The reason is simple, the golf club is designed for you to hit down on the ball and to let the natural loft to get ball in the air.  The golf club does not need your help getting airborne.  Even the bottom of the club has something called bounce to help you hit down on the ball and the club not get stuck!   So understanding that a steeper attack is actually what clubs are designed for us to do could just be the ticket to you hitting better iron shots.  I have made a quick video which will give you immediate feedback on whether your AOA is ready for the course or not!  

For this drill all you need is some electrical tape or painters tape a golf ball and golf club.  I recommend starting with a 9 or 8 iron.   Put a small piece of tape in front of the golf ball about 3 to 4 inches, the further you put the tape the hard the drill is and the more down you will have to hit to complete drill correctly.  If you are doing drill outdoors substitute a tee for the tape and stick in the ground in front of ball.  Once you get drill set up you are ready!  This is a great way to ensure your ball striking stays at its best!

We’re excited to bring you up to speed on some of the items you have been requesting within the PinSeeker experience. Below is an update on our product roadmap:

Feature – E6 CONNECT iOS Compatibility 📱📱

One of the most requested features is finally here. For the past 4 weeks we have been testing PinSeeker being enabled in the iOS version of E6Connect. This is slated to launch in early April. Thank you for your patience getting this launch out to your mobile devices!

ETA: Early April

Feature – Tournament Flighting 🥇🥈🥉

While anyone can win in a closest-to-the-pin competition it’s obvious that win percentage as a better golfer is higher. We have been collecting data on every shot and are crafting a dynamic handicapping system that will flight tournaments appropriately. This feature will release with a rolling update in this order:

Algorithm: We have implemented an algorithm which is calculating a PinSeeker skill index which ranges from 1-36. New players will start with an index of 19. Your skill index will be visible in your profile.

Tournaments: Tournaments will be allocated across two flights initially: Champions & Rookies. We will eventually roll out two additional flights for a total of four.

New Tournament Homepage: The flighted tournaments will lead to a completely new way to visualize and select tournaments.

We are currently running Beta tournaments leveraging flighted tournaments giving some of you an early look.

ETA: Mid-May Full Release

Feature – eWallet 💸

Over the past couple of months, you may have noticed a lot of enhancements around our payment and payout processes. This is all geared to get us ready to turn on eWallet for our US players. We know how many people have requested this and we are happy to say we are almost ready for release.

Update: Many of you are aware we broke the payments experience up into multiple smaller enhancements. The last enhancement with full eWallet capability is in its last phases of testing and will be released to a beta group in mid May.

ETA: Mid May release

Product & Tournament Update – November

Dear PinSeekers,

We hope you are having an awesome weekend and have had time to take swings in a PinSeeker tournament. Over the last two months we have been progressing through features we mentioned to you in our last product update. Below you’ll find updates on how we’re progressing on the features; but first, we have an exciting update to our tournament lineup.

What’s Changing In PinSeeker Tournaments:

  • Entirely new tournament lineup
  • Tournament purses are increasing by 56%
  • Weekly total purses are going from $5,975 to $9,335
  • Introducing 7 new tournaments, going from 15 to 22 cash tournaments
  • Tournament payout positions are going from 231 to 368

The new tournaments are scheduled to start on Monday the 15th, so be on the lookout for them and stick it tight! Here is a brief update on our roadmap items:

Feature – YES I CANADA 🇨🇦

Our friends to the north have been waiting patiently for PinSeeker to arrive in Canada. We have been jumping through legal hurdles and regulatory hoops to arrive across the border.

ETA: Early October

Update: Canada is now live!

Feature – eWallet ⚡💸

You asked for it! Say goodbye to paper checks, credit cards on each tournament and not being able to use your payout to play in future tournaments. eWallet will move PinSeeker from a pay-by-tournament model to a deposit-to-play model. We believe this is going to make payouts and tournament experiences much smoother.

ETA: Early November Beta Release

Update: We are rolling this out in a phased approach. Players who have payouts being processed will soon be able to link their Bank Account with Plaid allowing PinSeeker to verify ACH details for faster payments. Soon after the ACH component is live, you’ll be receiving updates on the eWallet capabilities. Here are a few screenshots:

Feature – Tournament Flighting 🥇🥈🥉

While anyone can win in a closest-to-the-pin competition it’s obvious that the win percentage as a better golfer is higher. We have been collecting data on every shot and are crafting a dynamic handicapping system that will flight tournaments appropriately.

ETA: Late 2021 Beta Release

Update: We are through the design process and the dynamic leveling (similar to handicap index) algorithm design. We are on track to deliver towards the end of December or early January for a Beta Release. New tournaments will be rolled out allowing players in specific levels to play in the respective flight. All players can play up a flight but no player can play down.

[New] Feature – E6 CONNECT iOS Compatibility 📱📱

PinSeeker’s experience is currently not embedded into the iOS build of E6 CONNECT, inhibiting players who utilize iOS as the main interface. This roadmap item includes PinSeeker’s game mode inside the E6 CONNECT iOS app.

ETA: Late 2021

New Games / Alternate Formats ⛳⛳

PinSeeker’s experience is smooth, fast, and simple. But we want to create an environment where you can remain competitive on a collection of tournaments and point systems across timelines. This may move beyond CTP as a format.

Inaugural Product Update Series

We recently ran a player survey to understand what you love, but most importantly what you dislike about the PinSeeker experience. With hundreds of survey participants (THANK YOU), we now have our first of many communications to tell you what is coming soon inside PinSeeker.

Survey Highlights

  • 8.8 out of 10 players surveyed said they would recommend PinSeeker to their friends. We’re flattered 🥰
  • Not many of you like paper checks or waiting for snail mail. Neither do we 📬
  • Many players mentioned finding a simulator as the main reason why playing isn’t as easy as they’d like it to be. We have a task force to help make simulators more available, but it won’t happen overnight 🧐
  • The feature requests from the players were all similar and we are hard at work on many of them 👷👷‍♀️
  • Some of the players asked for things or had concerns about the experience which has already been addressed in the game play. We need to communicate better ☎️
  • The charitable nature of PinSeeker was a meaningful aspect of the game more most players. We think so too 🙏

We consider ourselves lucky to have such great players willing to give us this feedback. So in our effort to be more transparent, we’re outlining a few of our core features coming soon. These are ordered in soonest release:

PinSeeker Reaches Major Milestone with over $50,000 Donated to Charity

Our mission at PinSeeker is simple. Build a global network of golfers, inspiring players to be both competitive and socially impactful. 

This July we reached a key turning point on our path towards that mission when we launched our official partnership with TruGolf, Inc.  This enabled us to allow anyone with the PinSeeker app and TruGolf’s E6 CONNECT to compete in our virtual closet to the pin contests all around the country.

Putting the last month into perspective, we’ve seen players make hole in-ones, win by inches and we’ve been able to build an intimate community of golf enthusiasts looking for the next great thing in golf. Adding to this, we’ve seen simulators all over the country coming online and golfers overseas feverishly waiting for our game to be compatible with applicable local rules and regulations. While these tournaments have been fun, PinSeeker was built on an idea of giving back to communities around the world. So as we’re still celebrating our launch, we are also celebrating another incredible milestone that took place about a week ago. We have officially donated over $50,000 to charity including the likes of American Cancer Society, Justin Thomas Foundation, The Jordan Spieth Family, and Golf House Kentucky.

To speak on our quick success and what the future holds for PinSeeker, we sat down with our Founder, Sean Breslin, to better understand what people can expect in the next few months as well as why the charitable aspect of our company is so important.

Breslin notes that, at PinSeeker, giving back is at the heart of everything we do, which is exactly why we started donating during our beta phase, way before we officially launched. Golf is one of the most charitable sports in the world so we wanted to carry on this tradition and we found that our tournaments set up the opportunities to create a difference. Breslin also noted, “The opportunity to do something impactful within society is massive with PinSeeker, the app allows us to use our platform for a bigger cause than just golf.” 

We wouldn’t be able to do this without golfers playing in our events as well as our venue and charity partners. The beauty in all of this is that almost everyone actually “has a philanthropic bone in them. People play in our tournaments and we make it very clear that a charity is tied to the tournament. PinSeeker taps into people’s emotions and gives them a chance to not only win some money, but give back to charity at the same time.” 

Looking at the future, there is a lot in store for the company. “Within the next 2 to 3 years, 200,000 simulators will be compatible with PinSeeker,” Breslin says. Continuing to talk about the charity aspect of PinSeeker we are happy about $50K but are aggressively looking to surpass that $100K mark next. Breslin joyously shared with us that “Soon, we will be creating annual Invitationals through our app that allow people to play on a more competitive stage with 80% of the proceeds going to major charities such as American Cancer Society”. The future shows a lot of promise to make more fun ways for golfers all over to play, win cash and ultimately give back to charity!

PinSeeker Partners with TruGolf Simulators

PinSeeker has officially partnered with TruGolf, Inc., a leading golf simulator and simulation software company. TruGolf’s E6 CONNECT software directly communicates with the PinSeeker app, allowing anyone with access to a golf simulator with E6 to compete on PinSeeker.

The E6 software is an outstanding piece of technology that combines the largest global network of golf simulators, so golfers can easily find a place to compete. TruGolf’s relationship with several simulator OEMs over the last 20 years has expanded their golf simulator network into the valuable and engaging virtual experience it is today. Now, any golf simulator with the E6 CONNECT software can host PinSeeker tournaments and games, meaning golfers have more chances to play (and win).

The PinSeeker app allows golfers from all over the world to compete in different games using golf simulators, most popularly in closest to the pin contests. PinSeeker’s proprietary app provides golfers with live leaderboards and rankings for each game played.

Founder Sean Breslin’s vision for PinSeeker is to “be a new and exciting game, similar to a hole-in-one game on the course, played at 800,000+ annual golf fundraiser events and be the most sought-out virtual golf game in the world since Golden Tee launched in 1989.” In Cash Tournaments, top-performing players can win cash payouts, and PinSeeker then matches the tournament purse and donates it to company-approved cause groups.

PinSeeker’s mission is to build a global network of golfers, inspiring players to be both competitive and socially impactful. By partnering with TruGolf, PinSeeker believes it can reach its goal of raising $500 million in the next five years, all from hosting impactful fundraisers on the E6-powered PinSeeker app.

TruGolf CEO Ryan Jones says, “TruGolf’s mission is to connect golfers, gamers, and fans through unique digital golf experiences. Partnering with PinSeeker offered us an opportunity to continue to innovate our products in a way that’s exciting for our customers – and help drive social change. We believe making the game more connected and accessible is the future of golf.”

Breslin states, “Each year over $4 billion dollars is raised here in the United States for cause groups through the game of golf. We believe that PinSeeker will be able to help organizations increase fundraising and guarantee a higher net profit from each event. PinSeeker increases the excitement of the traditional golf scramble or tournament by providing a virtual game extension. As a standalone Virtual Tournament, logistics are a fraction of a traditional event and PinSeeker guarantees up to 80% of all tournament funds go back to the actual cause. We can guarantee such a high-rate return for our partners because we don’t have the hard cost of event planning and we are not subject to things like weather cancellation.”

PinSeeker is currently running a revolutionary series of virtual golf Fundraiser Tournaments and contests with the American Cancer Society. Breslin adds, “We are excited to align with the American Cancer Society to provide PinSeeker virtual tournaments and new donations to such a worthy organization.”

There are 14 different golf simulator brands compatible with the E6 software, expanding golfers’ opportunities to play for their causes and cash prizes. Whether the golfers are competing at their local course, a bar, or even an airport, they can all contribute to the American Cancer Society fundraiser while doing what they love to do. While in beta, PinSeeker has raised more than $28,000 for the American Cancer Society, the First Tee – Louisville, and the Justin Thomas Foundation.

PinSeeker looks forward to continuing to collaborate and develop more golf games with TruGolf. TruGolf’s mission of connected digital golf experiences, known as the Virtual Golf Association, is the foundation of the PinSeeker experience. Because TruGolf’s E6 software will allow more golfers to compete, the PinSeeker game will drive incredible social change in the golf industry.
