Golf Genius, the tournament management software launched in Wayne nearly a decade ago by tech exec Mike Zisman, expects to have a record-breaking year in 2019, writes Bob Fernandez for the Philadelphia Inquirer.
Zisman believes his app and software equipped with new updates and features will schedule 25 million individual and tournament rounds of golf in 42 countries throughout the year.
Golf Genius minimizes the number of times golfers play together and maximizes the number of times they play others in groups. It also offers live scoring on smartphones and club leaderboards, along with many other features.
Golf Genius has so far signed deals with the U.S. Golf Association and the Golf Channel to use its platform. Zisman has also invested several million of his own funds into the venture, which has seen 30 percent revenue growth each year.
Among the courses using the platform are Merion Golf Club, Philadelphia Cricket Club, and Aronimink Golf Club. Additionally, the Golf Channel will use Golf Genius for its amateur series in 2020 with more than 7,000 competitors and 800 events.
Will McIntosh, the Golf Channel’s executive vice president, calls Zisman, 69, an “overnight success eight years in the making.”
