On a chilly and sunny September Monday morning two weeks ago, me and my friend Anniina Paatsama packed up our golf gear and headed towards Hämeenlinna to attend the GameBook Invitational held at Linna Golf.

Let’s begin by introducing Jonathan, a #GBambassador from Australia. He describes himself with the following three words: short, hungry and naturally… a golfer. He started golf at the age of 31 when moving from the UK to Australia. Jonathan’s favorite golf club is his Cleveland 3 Hybrid that he uses to get him out of trouble quite regularly. When asking him about how he had heard of GameBook, he responded:
I found GameBook whilst looking for an app to record my rounds and help me track my stats. I started using it in 2013 so I have nearly every round of golf I have every played on the app.
Jonathan really enjoys using GameBook to arrange social golfing group events. They get 3 or 4 groups playing each month and everyone enjoys watching the other players’ scores in real-time on the app.
It really builds the excitement and banter as the round comes to a climax. If the scores are close, there will be a gallery watching as the last group comes into the 18th green.
Our Ambassador Program aims to bring together golfers from around the world that enjoy having a fun time on the course with their buddies. Jonathan explains:
I love the stats that GameBook tracks and seeing my game progress over time. The app also has everything I need in one place from scoring, hole previews and GPS yardages.

Jonathan’s favorite feature is the GPS feature, including the hole previews. He thinks that they are really helpful, especially when he’s playing a course for the first time. We asked him who his all-time favorite golfer is:
I like players with a bit of character like Andrew “Beef” Johnston. I also like watching Bubba Watson who is always playing on the edge.
