The PGA Tour has announced a multi-year partnership with GameOn Technology, which will bring content from the professional men’s golf tour to Facebook Messenger via the company’s ChatOS proprietary bot platform.
Available from the start of the 2019-20 PGA Tour season, a new PGA Tour Chatbot will allow fans to ask questions and receive information about tournaments with instant access to leaderboards, video highlights, FedExCup standings, statistics, season schedules, news and tournament pages.
The San Francisco-based GameOn will also allow fans to tailor an experience around their favorite players, opting to receive player specific news, tee times, real-time highlights, pre- and post-tournament video, scoring data, and editorial recaps.
“We are excited about GameOn’s ability to help us deliver interactive content in a convenient and timely manner to PGA Tour fans around the world,” said Scott Gutterman, PGA Tour’s vice president of digital operations.
“The PGA Tour has vast amounts of content and a diverse global audience looking to access that content around the clock, and this relationship with GameOn will help us provide that access,” Gutterman said.
