Members of our Golf Remote Operations team impressed during New Zealand's latest lockdown due to Covid 19, forming a live-in bubble at ARL's newly renovated offices in Dunedin for the duration, ensuring Virtual Eye could still provide computer-generated graphics of ball flight paths and virtual fly-throughs of golf courses for coverage of events on both the PGA and European Tours.

In August, we were covering concurrent PGA and European tour events, starting with the WGC FedEx St. Jude Invitational at TPC Southwind and the Hero Open in Scotland. The Wyndham Championship in North Carolina and the Cazoo Classic 2021 (English Open) were the next pairing, before the trio of simultaneous tournaments The Northern Trust, D+D Real Czech Masters and Women's British Open were also supplied with graphics thanks to the dedication of our aforementioned 'in-house' team. The BMW Championship on the PGA Tour and the Omega European Masters on the European Tour were also served by the same crew. Broadcast coverage of the Major League Baseball season continued, enhanced by MLB's StatCast 3D product.
PGA TOUR TOURCast runs on the web and on multiple devices, tracking the action of golf players playing on the PGA Tour in real-time on an interactive 3D model, that also features Tee shot shapes using TrackMan radar and SHOTLink (powered by CDW) shot trails.
