ShotStat’s systems are built on the latest technological platforms and deliver first class design, security, and features. As the first company to deliver player dedicated live scoring devices, ShotStat continues to be at the forefront of tournament management solutions.
“ShotStat is thrilled to partner with the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour. Our companies’ visions align as we both strive to deliver the most advanced, innovative platforms to our clients”, said David Sweeney, President of ShotStat. “With the HJGT being the largest junior tour in the country, this partnership will allow ShotStat’s technology to be in the hands of more junior golfers which will help grow the game of junior golf.”
“Customizing the user experience for our members, as well as being able to revolutionize and innovate were top priorities for us as we looked at how to grow the HJGT and make sure we were at the forefront of technology use,” said Mario Conte, Executive Director and Founder of the HJGT. “ShotStat is without a doubt the leader in this space and they are the only one who had the resources and the innovative desire to help us put a live-scoring device in every kid’s hand in 2019.”
“We’ve received a lot of feedback from our members with regard to what they felt could enhance their experience, and we are excited that ShotStat is able to execute exactly what was being requested both now and in the future. We are confident all of our participants will be blown away by the ease of use and the overall experience they will have registering for our events, as well as utilizing and navigating our new live-scoring devices, App, and website. This unique and customized experience will completely change the landscape of our tour for the better moving forward.”
This marks the second ground breaking technology partnership for the Tour in the last month. With all HJGT participants having access to the Junior Golf Hub, and now ShotStat, HJGT is proud to offer the best resources available, while providing the best user experience in Junior Golf.
