Ernie Els, PGA TOUR® golfer, three-time Major Champion and Golf Hall of Fame Inductee has joined with VTree LLC as the featured player in our latest accessible video game, “My Golf Game featuring Ernie Els.”
“The goal of our latest video game is to make accessible to people with special needs the ability to play golf in a first-class video game,” says Chuck Bergen, founder and president, VTree LLC. “The game can be played with touch screen, foot pedals, voice recognition and other adaptive, assistive technology while working with the traditional game-play devices like a mouse, keyboards, and Xbox 360™® game controllers.”
Current World #10 Ernie Els adds: “I am proud to be associated with “My Golf Game…” As a parent of a child with autism it is great to see such a high quality game available to a wider group of gamers that will help develop key coordination skills.”
A percentage from the sales of “My Golf Game featuring Ernie Els” will go to The Els for Autism Foundation. The foundation, founded in 2009, is working to build a world class Center of Excellence – the first of its kind, incorporating all the services a child with autism needs in order to become a productive member of society. It will combine cutting-edge education, therapy and research for children in the autism spectrum.
