On November 15 and December 1, the Rochester District Golf Association hosted two informational seminars at Oak Hill Country Club to introduce the next-generation scoring system being provided by the USGA to our Member Clubs.
The RDGA welcomed Golf Genius Northeast Region representative Ken Dixon to Oak Hill twice, to lead the seminars and provide free-of-charge demonstrations of the Tournament Management system to representatives of RDGA Member Clubs, as well as Western New York PGA Section Professionals, who were also able to earn education credits for attending the one-day seminar. This new "Tournament Management" (or "TM") product will replace all current versions of the USGA's Tournament Pairing Program, or TPP - INCLUDING TPP-Client and TPP Online Club.
Provided by golf software innovator Golf Genius, the USGA's Tournament Management will offer many options to club administrators and PGA Professionals for tournament scoring, league management, outside event management, printed tournament materials and more. Through the end of the year, the USGA will be offering its new USGA Tournament Management software as a program available to all member clubs of an officially-recognized Allied Golf Association - which includes all Member Clubs in the Rochester District Golf Association.
If your club was unable to send a representative to one of these sessions, there will still be opportunities for your Club's management to attend a smaller training session at the RDGA office during the off-season. A full schedule of smaller, in-house training sessions will soon be announced.
Until then, if the tournament administrator at your club is interested in attending one of these smaller training sessions, feel free to have them call the RDGA office at 585-292-5950 to put your club on the list.
