PGA TOUR Pro Fred Funk Becomes Spokesman For PerfectGolfEvent
PONTE VEDRA BEACH, FLORIDA, USA (January 19, 2015) PerfectGolfEvent.com, launched in early January as a simple, digital solution for planning charitable and corporate golf events, has retained the services of one of professional golf’s most successful players, Fred Funk.
Funk, a 29-time winner as a professional, including eight times on the PGA TOUR, highlighted by the 2005 Players Championship victory on the famed TPC Sawgrass Stadium Course, has become the spokesperson for the newly formed organization.
“I compete in professional golf events around the world with full-time event organizers who have a large staff,” said Funk, a Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., resident and current Champions Tour member. “Perfect Golf Event provides you with the same tools the professional tournament directors use, including the ability to have an exclusive, customized Web site for your event. You can set it up in minutes and save hours of planning time with tournament-tested resources.”
Funk participated in a promotional video in mid-December on Dye’s Valley Course at TPC Sawgrass and will promote the Web site and provide valuable tips on organizing events throughout the season. Funk played in the PGA TOUR’s Sony Open in Hawaii last week and will participate in the Champions Tour’s Mitsubishi Electric Championship in Hawaii this week.
“With a player of Fred’s status and having played thousands of amateur and professional tournaments in his career, he can share insight that will be of interest to our tournament organizers,” said Paul Courter, the Chief Operating Officer of Perfect Golf Event and a veteran of developing tournament-planning components. “He will not only be a great spokesman but a great resource to refine the quality of services we provide for those new to planning golf events.”
