Have you ever wondered what would happen if you got to play golf against some of the best players in the world? It may not sound like you would have great odds playing against the likes of Rory McIlroy, Henrik Stenson or Ian Poulter, but what if it was match play? And you got to…
Hey all! I spent last week in and around Orlando by organizing college golf scoring by Golf GameBook together with GameBook Inc.’s CEO, Mr. Mikko Rantanen. Also we got honor to organize live scoring for Ian Poulter’s Charity Classic at Isleworth Country Club, which was one of the most spectacular Country Clubs I’ve seen for…
It was yet again a great experience to visit the PGA Merchandise Show this year. It was the 60th time for the PGA Show, which is held annually in Orlando, FL. GameBook was not exhibiting this as we did in 2010 and 2011 when launching the Golf GameBook app, our mobile community and the GameBook…
Once again Ryder Cup proved why it is THE tournament. The biggest, the most beautiful, pure passion, everything what we could expect the from the World’s greatest golf tournament! The 39th Ryder Cup at Medinah Country Club in Chicago saw an extraordinary comeback by Europe. Jose Maria Olazabal’s men were down after the first two…
I’m still thrilled and can’t wait for this year’s Ryder Cup! Watched yesterday Team Europe’s Captain Jose Olazabal’s press conference live from the web when the legend Spaniard announced his wild card picks. Belgium’s Nicolas Colsaerts and England’s Ian Poulter were perfect picks in my opinion. What Ryder Cup would be without Poulter. That guy…

What Ryder Cup would be without Poulter. That guy brings electricity & team spirit to the tournament more than any other player. Watch this video, it tells why I’m so happy to see Poulter wearing European uniform again on late September at Medinah Country Club. And we all know how strong he is in match play. Good choice Ollie!
Funny. I tried to think some other sports event that has as much great emotions when all the athletes don’t even play for themselves or for their home country. Didn’t get a single one.Do you know some? And Ryder Cup is not about the money – it’s about pride!
… Just found out Broberg has the same birthday with me. Funny a coincidence!
But anyways, back to the topic. Broberg took his maiden victory here in Finland in early August. It was his second career CT-tournament! Success breeds self-confidence, which breeds more success. In following tournaments that talented Swede took one third place and two more victories, and when one player win three times in CT, he earns automatically good category to European Tour.
Quickest three-victory-straight ever on Challenge Tour. Overall the guy played 75 shots under par those tournaments. On second thought maybe Ollie used his wild cards wrongly 🙂

Social media and players personal blogs revolutionized golf’s inside the ropes -life 3-4 years ago. You know, we all were tired to hear those post-round interviews where everyone tried to play their own game, make the progress shot by shot and so on.
Alex Noren was my favorite golf blogger, nowadays he has moved to Twitter too where Ian Poulter and Stewart Cink has been pioneers of golf stars. Really love to follow Finnish player Mikko Ilonen on Twitter too, he has such a great humor. And did you know that Noren is a good friend with red-hot Broberg?
Many of you probably noticed from our Twitter or Facebook that GameBook Cup’s official partner Samsung increased bets for the Cup for last two weeks. This is your chance to win new Samsung Galaxy SIII – I’d call that as a very good prize 🙂 Remember to turn your stats on this weeks (open the app, then “profile” and there you’ll find “collect statistics”) – winner will be continent with better putting average!
And hey, fellow Europeans, seriously! We are two behind, current situation is 3-1 for Team USA! That’s why I put my putter to the owen for next few days. I’ll help my team on Friday & Saturday and try to do my best. No gimmies 😉
