– Mobile sports app developer sponsors Mackenzie Hughes in major tournament

TORONTO – June 14, 2013: theScore, Inc. (TSX Venture: SCR) is delighted to announce it has agreed a deal to sponsor Canadian golfer MacKenzie Hughes as he competes at the US Open. The 22-year-old, represented by Duck Sports, Inc., will wear theScore’s logo on his clothing throughout the second major tournament of the season at Merion Golf Club, Pennsylvania.

“I’m delighted to partner with such a successful company, which has strong ties close to my home town,” said Hughes, from Dundas, Ontario. “I’ve previously played golf with theScore’s CEO and I love using theScore’s mobile app, which is a leader among North American sports apps. I thank them for their support.”

Don Robertson, from Hughes’ management company Duck Sports, Inc., added: “It was important that we set Mackenzie up with quality people and a strong brand right off the bat as he progresses as a professional. 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. We wish him every success.”
