For fans on site in Charleston, the app also features on-site player tracking, which allows spectators to locate their favorite competitors on the course and practice areas, as well as an on-course map that highlights amenities and fan activations.

As the Official Technology Partner of the USGA and its championships, Cisco will provide the Wi-Fi network on-site and deliver secure, enhanced connectivity in fan areas and grandstands, so spectators can engage and share throughout the event.
Additional features of the app that will help bring offsite fans a bigger piece of the action include live streaming coverage, scorecard highlights, news, photos, videos, and social media updates from the Country Club of Charleston.
