It might not quite feel like golf season yet, at least not in New York where snow is in the forecast for tomorrow. But the PGA Tour is trying to get fans excited by helping them plot out digital holes on their real-life tables.

The PGA Tour released its own augmented-reality app today for iOS. The free app was created by Possible Mobile and sponsored by Mastercard, the presenting sponsor of this week’s Arnold Palmer Invitational in Bay Hill, Fla.
