The 2020 Ryder Cup was an incredible weekend of golf and our team at Pega was thrilled to be part of this historic event as the tournament’s official enterprise software. Sponsoring one of the premier events in golf inspired us to brainstorm how we could create opportunities through Pega technology to make this wonderful sport even better from both a social impact and fan engagement standpoint.
Today we’re excited to announce the official launch of our inaugural Pega Golf Challenge, a unique competition taking place from September 27 to November 15. To participate, individuals or teams of up to eight people can propose ideas for how to use Pega technologies to improve the sport of golf in four critical areas:
- Diversity and Inclusion in golf
- Sustainability in golf
- Fan engagement in golf
- Broadcast innovation in golf
Keep in mind that to enter the Pega Golf Challenge you DO NOT need to create an actual Pega application. We’re encouraging both current Pega professionals and newcomers to Pega to participate so our only ask is that you propose an IDEA for a Pega application that you can explain in five to 10 slides.
Each of the four winning individuals/teams will then be given the opportunity to take their Pega app idea and go through the process of building it into a Minimum Lovable Product (MLP) with the assistance of our Pega Express team!
Winning individuals/teams will also be highlighted on our Pega Community Blog and receive exclusive Pega and Ryder Cup merchandise that you won’t be able to find anywhere else.

Good luck out on the course!
