Golf Genius Software has signed a new partnership with the Professional Golfers Association of Japan to administer the scoring technology at its tournaments in 2021.

Having administered the first several events on this year’s Japanese Pro Senior Tour, Golf Genius will handle the tournament scoring administration on the Tour for the remainder of the season’s schedule.

The PGA of Japan joins a growing list of professional golf associations around the world trusting their key events to Golf Genius’ TMS, including the PGA’s of America, Australia, Belgium, Canada, Portugal, Holland and New Zealand.

“We are very pleased to be working with the PGA of Japan”, commented Mike Zisman, Founder and Co-CEO of Golf Genius Software. “We are dedicated to successfully serving the association and expect the scope of this agreement to expand in 2022 and beyond. We also look forward to growing our presence in the broader Japanese golf market.”

With over 2,400 courses nationwide and nine million active players, Japan is the second largest golf market in the world.

Masahiro Kuramoto, Chairman of the PGA of Japan, said: “This agreement will greatly assist our tournament staff in the set-up, administration and digital scoring of our important senior tour events. We are very impressed with the capabilities of the Golf Genius TMS. The features of the system and the professional and responsive product support we have received have already provided significant value for our organisation.”

Craig Higgs, Managing Director, International, for Golf Genius Software, explained that a full translation of the Golf Genius TMS to the Japanese language is now underway: “This significant investment by Golf Genius in a Japanese language product is clear evidence of our commitment to serving both the PGA of Japan and the Japanese golf market more generally. We are very grateful for the trust the PGA of Japan has placed in our company and look forward to a strong and successful relationship going forward.”
