Initiated in 2003, the AJGA Pace of Play program was put together for the world’s top junior golfers giving them opportunity to learn how to compete and play ready golf on some of the best courses in the country. In addition to its Pace of Play sponsorship, Leupold is the Official Rangefinder of the AJGA.
Leupold has a seven-year partnership commitment to the AJGA and its Pace of Play program.
“We are firm believers in Pace of Play and its continued efforts to improve the game of golf,” said Rob Morrison, vice president, global marketing for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “It’s exciting to see how junior golfers are using our digital laser rangefinders in AJGA tournaments to help them play at a high level and complete their rounds faster.”
The Pace of Play program is managed using a set time par developed using historical data, walks from tee to green, weather and course difficulty through six on-course checkpoints. The program has been successful at more than 1,000 AJGA tournaments since 2003. An average round at an AJGA tournament (threesomes, tee times) has consistently been under 4 hours, 30 minutes. The AJGA maintains records of each competitive round and looks to improve its average Pace of Play each year.
Leupold’s line of rangefinders are GX-4i2, GX-3i2, GX-1i2 and PinCaddie® 2. For more information, go to www.leupold.com/golf
