The button on the 80BREAKR™ app will summon a beverage cart where golfers may be on the course, to help them either celebrate a clutch shot or “console them after a blow-up hole.” The feature is also designed to help club and course operations improve service, reduce wait times, and improve pace of play by minimizing play stoppages.
80BREAKR™, a golf scorecard app, has added a “Beer Me™” button to let golfers summon the beverage cart, wherever they might be on the course.
“With this new button, we’ve eliminated the need for golfers to wait for the beer cart to drive by on its rounds,” says Thomas Stewart, owner and creator of 80BREAKR. “Courses have been using this as a way to improve service to their guests, reduce wait times, and improve pace of play by minimizing play stoppages caused by the beverage cart.
“So far, golfers have loved this feature,” Stewart adds. “Plus, it gives golf course operators the ability to know when and where golfers are looking for refreshments. We can preload the feature for courses that want to use it, as well, [so they can] let golfers know they can request the beverage cart to celebrate a birdie or Nassau clutch putt, or to console golfers who need a cold one after a blow-up hole.”
Stewart is a mechanical engineer with 24 U.S. patents for high-end computer design across three high-tech Silicon Valley companies. Being a lifelong golfer, he developed the 80BREAKR app after downloading available golf apps and growing frustrated with that did not sit well. Tom downloaded every golf app available and was frustrated with all of them, finding that they detracted from his golf game and left him by himself off the green while his foursome was already teeing off on the next hole, as he tried to enter scores with poorly designed that offered no easy way to measure play or focus on practice time and lessons.
Using his engineering design skills, Stewart fashioned the 80BREAKR app to include all of the things he wanted from a golf app that no other app was providing, including competition, skins, on-course shot tracking, automatic handicap posting and more. 80BREAKR, which debuted in 2015, can also be customized for clubs and course operators to include branding, ad revenue tracking, course-wide GPS and other features.
