GolfLeagueGenius.com named official scoring software of PGA of Canada

WAYNE, Pa. -- Golf Genius Software announced that GolfLeagueGenius.com has been named the official scoring software for the PGA of Canada.

"On behalf of the PGA of Canada's national board of directors and our 3,800 members, we are thrilled to partner with Golf Genius Software," said PGA of Canada CEO, Gary Bernard. "The GolfLeagueGenius digital platform will enhance our national championships and will allow our members, fans and golf media to stay better up-to-date through each event."

The PGA of Canada first used GolfLeagueGenius.com for the 2013 PGA Women's Championship of Canada July 2-4, and will use GolfLeagueGenius for the remaining championships of the 2013 season: the PGA Seniors' Championship of Canada; the PGA Assistants' Championship of Canada; and the PGA Club Professional Championship of Canada.

"Becoming the official scoring software of the PGA of Canada is a tremendous leap forward for Golf Genius Software," said Mike Zisman, CEO of Golf Genius Software. "We are excited for the PGA of Canada to use GolfLeagueGenius for its prestigious championships, and for the 3,800 PGA of Canada professionals to incorporate GolfLeagueGenius at their home clubs and courses."

With real-time scoring, golf fans across the world are able to view PGA of Canada championships live and follow their favorite golfers. The TV display gives the golfers and spectators at the tournament venue a scrolling leaderboard so everyone can watch the action from the clubhouse, and with the real-time leaderboard, fans can view up-to-the-minute results on PCs, iPads, iPhones and Androids.

GolfLeagueGenius is already being utilized for tournaments in PGA of Canada sections (zones). GolfLeagueGenius.com was named the official scoring software of the PGA of Ontario at the beginning of the 2013 season, and the efficiency in their tournament efforts has increased dramatically.

"With over 30 events on our tournament calendar, GolfLeagueGenius has simplified scoring and allowed us to get final results to our members faster than ever before," said Kevin Purcell, Executive Director of the PGA of Ontario. "GolfLeagueGenius is a very user-friendly system that is extremely adaptable and advanced in the features it provides."
