Nearly 300 PGA Professionals from across the country reserved a spot for their two and four-man teams to play in these events atHarmony Golf Preserve, Heathrow Country Club and Reunion Resort in the Orlando area. The Series is known not only for the camaraderie that it fosters, but for the attractive purses boasted by each event.
For each Pro-Pro event, GolfEventGenius was utilized to display pairings and results on a custom PGA Magazine Pro-Pro Series website that was accessible from the North Florida PGA’s website so competitors could access results before returning to their hotel rooms each evening. The response from the golfers was tremendous and phone calls to the administrators at the NFPGA with result inquiries were eliminated as teams had full results at their fingertips.
“We ran four Pro-Pro tournaments in two days and GolfEventGenius made it extremely easy,” says NFPGA’s Events and Operations Manager Steve Morris. “Pairings were displayed on the website and results were immediately available for all players. The live leaderboard also let them know where they stood. The players had the results and payout information online and via email before they got home.”
For some of the competitors, this was their second experience with Golf Genius Software as they were exposed to the scoring capabilities at the Pro-Pro Series in 2013. For event administrators like Morris, the impact of Golf Genius Software is powerful and invaluable. “As a PGA Professional for almost 25 years, I’ve seen the evolution of many tournament programs. GolfEventGenius is flexible, easy to train and user friendly. Golf Genius Software’s service and dedication can’t be matched. Simply the best out there.”
The Golf Genius Software staff also took advantage of the TV display leaderboard capabilities and had scores scrolling on large displays in real time so players knew where they stood against the field. During one of the busiest weeks in the industry, it was a game-changer having results readily available as these PGA Professionals juggled golf, meetings and other engagements with their peers, experiencing first-hand the time-saving capabilities of Golf Genius Software and GolfEventGenius.
