Golf is more than just a game; it's about driving a strategy to succeed. And Lexmark’s winning partnership with The PGA of America is no different. Lexmark is proud to be the Official Imaging and Printing Solutions Provider of The PGA of America, supporting the PGA headquarters, professionals, offices and Championship events.

Lexmark’s Customer Engagement Experience 

Championship events provide Lexmark an opportunity to host customers, partners and prospects at premium hospitality venues on the course. Competition on the links combined with breathtaking venues lead to lasting relationships with our valued clients. The Lexmark Business Solutions Summit is an opportunity to participate in knowledge-sharing sessions with industry experts and executive leaders. This event allows Lexmark a chance to have meaningful dialogue with customers so we may better understand their businesses. The insight it provides enables us to better serve their unique challenges and develop sustainable and reliable partnerships.

Our Partnership

Lexmark and The PGA of America have been sharing the links together since Lexmark supported the 2008 Ryder Cup with printing technology and solutions. Since 2008, our partnership has continuously grown and expanded, and now Lexmark manages mission-critical operations to keep the Senior, Women’s and PGA Championships and U.S.-based Ryder Cups performing with accuracy and efficiency.

Today, we proudly serve the PGA with the latest innovation in imaging and printing technology to connect the media center, contestant scoring, business centers, hospitality marketing areas and the administrative offices with real-time Championship information across the course.

About the PGA

Since its founding in 1916, The PGA of America has maintained a twofold mission: to establish and elevate the standards of the profession and to grow interest and participation in the game of golf.

By establishing and elevating the standards of the golf profession through world-class education, career services, marketing and research programs, The PGA enables its professionals to maximize their performance in their respective career paths and showcases them as experts in the game and in the multi-billion dollar golf industry. By creating and delivering world-class championships and innovative programs, The PGA of America elevates the public’s interest in the game, the desire to play more golf, and ensures accessibility to the game for everyone, everywhere. As The PGA nears its centennial, the PGA brand represents the very best in golf. 

Lexmark’s Presence at the 2017 PGA Championship

Our story continues at the 2017 PGA Championship.

Lexmark stands at the center of arguably the most pressing and time-sensitive process of the championship events - naming of the winner. With 100% accuracy, our customized scan application instantly scans and captures scorecard data. This information is simultaneously distributed to multiple locations on the golf course – the official scoring office, course scoreboard and broadcast media center. It is this moment that confirms the winner.

With approximately 75 Lexmark devices located on each championship course, nearly 200,000 pages are printed over the span of tournament action. Lexmark devices offer the capability to print on a wide variety of paper types, a feature perfectly suited for the unique printing needs to host a championship. Parking passes, grounds passes and food vouchers are just a few examples. 

Lexmark is the first PGA partner onsite to help set-up for the operational needs of each PGA Championship event we support. On the links, in the back office or along the front line - Lexmark’s hardware and software solutions act as the driving factor behind the overall IT infrastructure at every curve of a championship.

Our Sustainability Story

Lexmark employees helping to plant trees in open field

To offset the environmental impact of the paper consumption printing nearly 200,000 pages at each championship, Lexmark partners with The PGA of America to plant trees in the communities where the events take place.

Lexmark and The PGA of America collaborated to achieve our goal of planting more than 2,000 trees by The PGA of America’s 100th Anniversary in 2016. The partnership has grown to be an ongoing part of The PGA’s community commitment where their championships are held. The true success of these events has been the involvement with and beneficial impact on local communities.
