LPGA T&CP names White Tiger as an Approved Corporate Partner

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- The Ladies Professional Golf Association announced that White Tiger Systems, Inc. (WTS) will become an Approved Corporate Partner for the LPGA Teaching and Club Professional (T&CP) Membership. WTS will offer its RealTime (RT) System to help LPGA Professionals create a fully contained personalized website and eClub system.

The RT LPGA PRO Member System will make an important contribution by providing state-of-the-art media services to LPGA members. By offering each LPGA Professional a personal website with email marketing, each member will have the tools needed to reach a greater audience, promote and grow their programs.

"We are very excited to partner with White Tiger to help our LPGA Teaching Professionals become even better promoters of their brand," said Dana Rader, LPGA T&CP National President.

White Tiger Systems, Inc.'s team has over 80 years of experience in building, delivering and managing information through technology. After years of working with the bigger, more costly technology platforms, WTS has taken the path to develop a system on today's Open Source technology that will allow thousands of users to be supported at a significantly lower cost.

"The LPGA T&CP has always shown a forward thinking approach toward marketing golf instruction by providing their membership with the tools necessary to promote their teaching professionals. We at White Tiger are proud to be associated with the LPGA T&CP, as an Approved Corporate Partner," said Teresa Wortman, White Tiger President.

The WTS - RealTime System is specifically targeted to organizations with small, medium and large memberships, such as Sports Organizations (Golf, Tennis, Athletes, etc), Business Profiles, Restaurant Associations, Medical Groups, Professional Organizations, etc. A major goal is to promote the individual business or person belonging to a parent organization as a member.

"Having a personal website will allow our LPGA Professionals to have a greater online presence, gain greater visibility and market their instructional programs," added Rader. "This service will provide golfers of all ages and skill levels the ability to identify and locate an LPGA Professional who can help them learn to play and enjoy the game of golf."

"Over the past few years, our vision has been to bring golf pros a vehicle to promote themselves and the game of golf, and we believe the RT System has done just that. We have created a self-contained, user friendly system to offer pros an integrated website and email marketing presence. In five simple steps, a golf pro can have a website shell up and ready for content, without having any technical experience. This new platform offers an affordable, flexible and easy solution for the busy golf professional. We are proud to be working with the LPGA and looking forward to a successful partnership that will benefit LPGA members nationwide," said Wortman.
