GOLF corporate

By Adam Sarson, Product Manager

It’s an exciting time to be a golf fan. The youth movement that started a few years ago has taken over the game, with players like Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas and Jon Rahm becoming superstars seemingly overnight. Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler and Dustin Johnson are all in the prime of their careers, and veterans like Phil Mickelson and Sergio Garcia are playing as well as they ever have.

Oh, and that Tiger guy is back, and he not only looks healthy, but he looks like he’s ready to win tournaments again.

Here at theScore, we’ve been working hard on improving our golf section for quite some time, and we’re happy to say that we’re ready to show it off to everyone. Given everything that is going on in the golf world right now, our timing couldn’t have been better.
