(OPENPRESS) October 22, 2009 -- The Australian Invitational, last year's very successful marriage of golf and action sports at Flinders Golf Club, has grown up and moved to the city to become A Kodak Walk In The Park.

Before you even arrive at the event the brand new technology used in the website for A Walk in the Park will give you the full virtual experience. Via your web connected computer you will not only get a fly though tour of the event site, after the tour you can use the arrows on your keyboard to guide yourself around the central hub of the site just as if you were there, Melbourne city skyline included. www.awalkinthepark.com.au

Kodak, one of the world's most recognised brands, is the major sponsor of this multi-sport and entertainment extravaganza. "Kodak is excited to be associated with such a premier event where the company's innovative digital product and services line up will play a feature role on the day, and later in the television coverage on Network Ten and One HD" said Kodak Marketing Manager Susan Chan.

A major addition to the golf and action sports line-up for 2009 will be an outdoor rock concert right on the golf course, with an All Australian line-up featuring The Hoodoo Gurus, You Am I, Kisschasey, Dallas Crane and The Pictures.

Director Peter Wilson said "The change of location is what was required to turn this into a major event, being in the middle of the city at Albert Park public golf course is perfect for spectators with easy access to transport."

This ground breaking event is ever evolving and some bigger things are in store this year. The most interesting change pits 10 PGA men together with 10 ALPG women, and reduced the event into a 9 hole shoot-out, speeding up the action much like limited overs cricket. The 9 best holes out of Albert Park's 18 hole championship course have been selected and the layout re-worked to accommodate all sorts of entertainment on the day.

A faster paced golf format in a smaller field will declare a winner after just 3 hours instead of 4 days. So expect man against woman in an ultimate showdown! The winner will receive $50,000 which far exceeds any other one day event.

Joining the Golf 9 hole shoot-out at the 2009 Kodak Walk in the Park is the Rockstar Energy drinks World Cup Skateboarding, the final world cup event for 2009, with the best skaters from around the world flying in to compete in Melbourne. Additionally there will be BMX dirt jumping, and of course a Rockstar Model search.

For the car buffs Shannons car insurance is putting on the All Time Show N' Shine, featuring the best of classics and hot rods to modern supercars and of course their Shannons Super Rig. So even if golf doesn't take your fancy there is plenty to see and do only at A Kodak Walk In The Park.
