Find everything you need to know to join and compete on the NEXT Golf Tour. This page will be updated throughout Season 2.
Here’s a step-by-step guide to joining and playing on the NEXT Golf Tour. Be sure to familiarize yourself with the FAQ & Rules page as well.
Download the Trackman Golf app from the App Store.
Sign up and create your profile.
The same profile and email will be used to join the tournament.
Find the NEXT event you want to enter on the Schedule page, or the Tournaments tab on the Trackman Golf app.
Select Join to register and pay your entry fees. You’ll receive an email confirming your entry.
Sign-ups close when the event window opens. You may not join a round already in progress.
The new app is required to play in NEXT Golf Tour events.
Download the app from the App Store or Google Play.
Sign in with your Trackman profile.
When prompted, make sure to allow cellular data.
Position your phone behind the hitting area so that your entire body/swing and the impact screen can be seen.
Consider using a tripod or phone stand to keep the viewing angle the same during the entire round.
This is the view that will be displayed on the live leaderboard.
If there are multiple players in the same bay, one phone running the NEXT Recorder app is sufficient.
We recommend using a stable WiFi connection while playing so the app can upload your footage quickly.
Enable “Do not disturb” mode on your device so calls or notifications don’t disturb the recording process.
Use a power cable while recording to prevent battery drain/shutdown.
Login to any Trackman simulator with your Trackman account.
Open the NEXT Recorder app and scan the QR code to connect the camera. When you see the “Device connected” message on screen, you’re ready to go.
You must complete your round in one uninterrupted session. Incomplete or manipulated recordings may result in disqualification.
Log in to the player portal. Select Tournaments, then select a round.
Select your name on the leaderboard to open your scorecard, then select a hole to view your shots.
Tap the save icon in the bottom-right corner of the video player to download each shot.
Post your favorite (or least-favorite) shots on your social channels, and be sure to tag @NEXTGolfTour and #NEXTGolfTour.
You can also send us a DM on Instagram with your video. Add a short description, including the hole number. You might see yourself in an upcoming highlight reel!
Share your experiences in one of two categories — #NEXTlife and #NEXTshot — on Instagram. We’ll award two $2,000 prizes and two $1,000 prizes to the best videos in each category after each of the first six rounds. Get more details under Social Media Standouts on the FAQ & Rules page.
