The Ryder Cup and Pegasystems Inc. (NASDAQ: PEGA), the software company that crushes business complexity, have announced a multiyear agreement establishing Pega as a worldwide supplier of the 43rd and 44th Ryder Cup. Pega’s sponsorship will contribute toward the distinguished experience both teams and spectators have come to expect from this event. Pega will also work with Ryder Cup broadcast partners to create online content on the value of partnerships.
Established in 1983, Pega creates software that helps enterprises make better decisions and get work done. Delivering meaningful business outcomes as clients look to digitally transform, its scalable architecture and low-code/no-code platform help enable even the biggest organizations to stay streamlined, agile and ready for what’s next. Ryder Cup spectators, golfers and event staff have likely already used Pega in their daily lives – including when they travel, use a credit card, call a company for service or perform other everyday tasks.
“Pega is known for problem solving and delivering the right solutions to the world’s most sophisticated enterprises,” said PGA of America CEO Seth Waugh. “At its core, the Ryder Cup is about turning challenge into opportunity which makes Pega a natural fit as a partner for our next two competitions.”
“We are delighted to welcome Pega to the Ryder Cup commercial family for the next two editions,” said Guy Kinnings, European Ryder Cup Director. “The Ryder Cup is all about partnerships and teamwork, and we look forward to Pega’s innovation helping us to continue to deliver a first-class service for everyone involved in the biennial contest.”
“As Pega continues to push boundaries to meet our ambitious goals, we are seeking opportunities to increase awareness for our brand and the great work Pega is doing for our clients,” said Hayden Stafford, President of Global Client Engagement, Pegasystems. “Given the prestige and excitement around the Ryder Cup, it is a natural fit for Pega to sponsor, as we continue to grow our business and help the world’s leading organizations achieve breakthrough outcomes.”
Pega’s sponsorship includes the 43rd Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wisconsin, from Sept. 21-26, 2021; and the 44th Ryder Cup at Marco Simone Golf and Country Club in Rome, Italy, from Sept. 26-Oct. 1, 2023.
