"The objective of 'My Golf Game' is to give millions of people with special needs the opportunity to play golf on a modern video game platform," 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 devices, in addition to traditional devices like a mouse, keyboards, and Xbox 360™® game controllers."
"My Golf Game" is DVD-based for the PC that utilizes technologies used in EA SPORTS™ games to bring authentic golf action to the gamer.
Current World #8 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" 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.
