“Schwab Firebird” AR Experience for the Charles Schwab Challenge

Agencies: Episode Four Groove Jones


Charles Schwab has one of the coolest trophies on the PGA Tour. Sam Burns, the winner of the 2022 Charles Schwab Challenge, earned $1,512,000 of an $8.4 million purse, his name on the Leonard Trophy, and a handsome red tartan jacket, but he also received the keys to a custom rebuilt 1979 Firebird Trans-Am.

Groove Jones worked with the Charles Schwab R&D team, Non-traditional activations team, Media Team, Sponsorships Team, and their agency Episode Four to bring an AR experience that highlights the technical and custom upgrades on the Schwab Firebird.

The custom-built firebird was built and designed by Steve Strope at Pure Vision, who creates amazing one-of-a-kind street machines. The car was designed with original, striking features, like Schwab-branded paintwork, a Colonial-inspired interior, and multiple tech upgrades.

After launching the AR experience, golf (and car) fans can place the Schwab Firebird wherever they want. Once activated, they can rotate and position the ride for some great photo ops. By tapping on the multiple hotspots, they start the custom features in the vehicle. Tap on the engine or the seat icon, and 3D animated AR elements fly out of the car for you to check out.
