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.

We are confident that he will continue to develop throughout the year, and the support from theScore is hugely appreciated.”

Hughes qualified for the US Open after winning a play-off at a sectional qualifying round in St. Louis, Missouri, beating 40 others to secure his first appearance at a major championship.

“We’re proud to see theScore logo at one of the most prestigious golf tournaments in the world, and even prouder that it’s being worn by someone like Mackenzie,” said John Levy, CEO of theScore, Inc. “His story is an inspirational one and demonstrates what a combination of skill, hard work and perseverance can get you.
