Here is some good news for all golf fans in the United States. Cingular Wireless, the largest wireless service provider in the country, has now launched PGA TOUR Portal to feed its golf-loving customers with the most up-to-date information on forthcoming 87th PGA Championship.

Cingular customers will be getting real-time statistical information on the PGA tournament, including detailed information on every player. The TOUR Portal will also be littered with strong news components focusing on up-to-date scoring pattern and also breaking news leading players performance. Commenting on this new sporting application, Dave Garver, Executive Director, Cingular Wireless, said. “Whether you’re playing the sport, keeping up with the latest PGA TOUR action or enjoying a video game, the TOUR Portal has something for you. This is another example of how Cingular continues to stay on the cutting edge of providing fresh, interactive content that makes the wireless experience unique for our customers.”

The Tour Portal is also laden with a very popular video game EA Sports Tiger Woods PGA TOUR Golf and can be accessed by Cingular customers on their internet compatible handsets by downloading the application from MEdia Net/Sports, or by text messaging “TOUR” to “4742” and opting in for the service.
