Working to ensure successful delivery of the event with the PGA team, as well as seeing an improved customer experience for players and event hosts, we are excited about the next four years.”

Commenting on the new partnership, Stuart Hergt, Chief Operating Officer of the PGA of Australia, said: “The PGA and Volkswagen Scramble are pleased to partner with Golf Genius as we approach the start of the 2020/2021 season. As technology has evolved so has the Volkswagen Scramble and its systems. We are excited to go on a new journey with Peter and his team this year with the aim of delivering our users a streamlined, easy to use platform.”

Volkswagen Scramble will launch an online portal for all host venues and their PGA Professionals that will feature helpful information on the program in addition to 24/7 online support. Golf Genius, together with the PGA, will also provide clubs with a webinar series dedicated to outlining the program and providing users with best practice tips for ease of use and administration.

Mike Zisman, President and Co-CEO of Golf Genius, added: “We are continuing to grow our global footprint as the leader in tournament management and welcome the Volkswagen Scramble and PGA of Australia to our growing customer base.”
