During the Open Championship at Carnoustie the Virtual Eye tracking system played a big role in broadcast coverage, going out on BSkyB in the UK, Asahi TV in Japan and NBC in the US. Immediately following the 147th Open, three simultaneous tournaments rounded out another busy golfing month, the Porsche European Open in Hamburg, the RBC Canadian Open in Oakville and the Senior Open Championship at St Andrews. July had started with teams at concurrent events the HNA Open de France in Paris and the Quicken Loans National in Maryland. The next doubleheader for the Virtual Eye Golf operators was the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open at Ballyliffin and The Greenbrier Classic at White Sulphur Springs in West Virginia - those events quickly followed by the AAM Scottish Open at Gullane GC and the John Deere Classic in Illinois.
On the Sailing calendar, both the 2018 Extreme Sailing Series and the 52 SUPER SERIES had major events in Cascais - Virtual Eye was again in attendance, supplying our tracking and graphics for both series throughout the year via broadcast, browser and mobile.
