London, England: Golf Genius has announced a three-year partnership with the Confederation of Professional Golf (CPG) to deliver its market-leading tournament management software (TMS).

As official events partner, Golf Genius will help the CPG elevate its schedule of events and communicate directly with its Member Country PGAs and their individual Members for tournament management support.

“We look forward to establishing a strong relationship with the Confederation of Professional Golf in what represents a very exciting partnership for Golf Genius,” said Craig Higgs, Managing Director of Golf Genius International, a Full Business Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.

He added: “We’ll be looking to take their events to the next level and demonstrate to each and every CPG Member Country how they can improve their tournaments with our event management solution, which is trusted by organisations such as the PGA of America, England Golf and the USGA.”

In response to the global Coronavirus pandemic, Golf Genius has further developed its digital solutions, providing tournament organisers with more options to run safe, contactless events, as used by the European Tour from the restart of the 2020 season.

The Golf Genius digital scorecard, advanced leaderboard presentation, prize fund management, and complete set of registration and communication tools facilitate professional, efficient events with easy set-up and admin.

Golf Genius’ flexible scoring solution will enable ­the CPG to activate leagues across a collection of competitive, shortened and more inclusive formats of golf.

Ian Randell, Chief Executive of the CPG, said: “Golf Genius have really established themselves as leaders in the area of tournament management software over the last few years. In partnering with them, we look forward to continuing to build our own tournament offering and facilitate a shared calendar of tournaments and education activity, made up of our activities and those of our member countries.

“We will also work with them to develop software solutions for game development, both on and off course, and as such this relationship will also help further our commitment to develop the game more broadly, enabling its benefit to be wider-felt by golfers across all nationalities, levels and abilities.”

Among those who have already become customers of Golf Genius are the PGAs of Belgium, Holland and Portugal, who have been using the tournament scoring solution to run enhanced events.

Frank Kirsten, CPG Chairman and Director of the PGA of Holland, added: “By embarking on our own relationship with Golf Genius, we will be able to provide a significantly enhanced tournament service to our PGA of Holland members in 2021.

“This partnership between the CPG and Golf Genius is fantastic news for other CPG member countries and their members as well, and will enable them the opportunity to further their own tournament golf offerings in their respective countries.”
