Share Article

Cox Classic presented by Lexus of Omaha has announced that a mobile application will be available for the first time during the 2012 tournament.

We really wanted this app to extend the ‘Cox Classic’ experience before, during and after the tournament by providing valuable content that fans, volunteers and sponsors of the tournament have asked for over the last few years.

The new app will provide Cox Classic fans, volunteers and sponsors instant access to scores, high-definition course information, special events schedules and event coupons. This cutting edge app will provide a unique experience for tournament fans and volunteers, giving them unprecedented access to tournament and course details. Powered by HTML5 technology, the app will be accessible on iPhone, iPad and Android devices, all from one mobile interface.

CoSentry has been tapped to host the mobile app, which was developed by AppShark, one of CoSentry’s strategic partners. The app was designed with strong user experience in mind. Using the latest in mobile app technology, it integrates social media sharing through Facebook, Twitter and e-mail. Features will provide golf fans everything they need to engage in the excitement of the tournament and its philanthropic mission.

“We really wanted this app to extend the ‘Cox Classic’ experience before, during and after the tournament by providing valuable content that fans, volunteers and sponsors of the tournament have asked for over the last few years,” said Chad Mardesen, Cox Classic tournament director. “We pride ourselves on being one of the most innovative tournaments on the tour, and we think this app reinforces that statement.”

The four-day PGA Tour tournament runs Aug. 2-Aug. 5 in Omaha, Neb. The tournament attracts more than 100,000 spectators each year while supporting the tour’s primary mission of raising money for local organizations.
