There will likely be a people across the country occasionally checking out Kenesky Murray Golf Services this year and how they’re progressing with an initiative that is quite different than most regions in Canada.
The PGA of Ontario announced in early January that it has granted Jim Kenesky and Colin Murray management of as many as 21 association tournaments this year.
According to PGA of Ontario executive director Kevin Purcell, the number of participants in those events was declining as potential players had less and less time to play and practice on their games due to other aspects of their jobs.
The decision to go with such a set-up also frees up more time for the PGA of Ontario’s three-person staff to focus on other aspects of it the association’s mandate such as education, enhancing its brand, communicating with members, general managers and course owners, among others.
So is the outsourcing of PGA tournaments about to become a trend across the country? Do you think this practice will become the norm?
