Atlanta -- Golfing fanatics can feed their addiction on their wireless phone thanks to the new PGA TOUR Portal from Cingular Wireless. Today's launch of the TOUR Portal ahead of the 87th PGA Championship will allow most of Cingular's more than 51 million customers access to the most up-to-date, in-depth and content-rich PGA TOUR information available.
Cingular's TOUR Portal will be highlighted by the award-winning TOURCast Mobile, a cutting-edge graphical application that puts wireless users almost as close to the action as the caddies. TOURCast Mobile provides real-time statistical information on PGA TOUR tournament leaderboards, including unprecedented coverage of every player, every hole and every shot. SHOTlink, the signature component of TOURCast Mobile, features a graphical representation of what is happening on course at any moment to many Cingular Internet-ready wireless phones. The TOUR Portal also allows users to customize the news feature to deliver up-to-date scoring alerts and breaking news about their favorite players.
Cingular customers can access the TOUR Portal on their Internet-ready handset by going to MEdia Net/Sports, or by text messaging "TOUR" to "4742" and opting in to the service. The TOUR Portal will be accessible anywhere Cingular Wireless service is available. TOURCast Mobile will be available during most PGA TOUR events, ensuring fans will never miss a shot of the action.
