Troy Kelly, who joined the PGA TOUR in 2009, has been playing the game virtually his entire life. When asked about his beginnings, Troy Kelly has stated, “My dad put a club in my hand as soon as I could walk.” Bouncing back from medical issues the past couple years, Troy has already shown tremendous progress so far in 2012. It’s this type of dedication and love of the game that drew SoftwareMedia to sponsor Troy Kelly. “We’re proud to sponsor Troy and have him represent SoftwareMedia.com,” states Todd Francis, COO of SoftwareMedia.com. “He’s a great friend, great player and has a bright and long future on the PGA TOUR.”
SoftwareMedia.com has also seen its own dedication–in the form of customer satisfaction–pay off greatly in recent years. Francis continues, “SoftwareMedia.com has been in the business of selling software for almost fifteen years. While we have built a name for ourselves as the leader in the software industry and hold the highest rating in customer service, we’re always experimenting with new ways to branch out and establish new business relationships. We felt the PGA TOUR was the logical choice to get our brand out to businessmen and women who may not be familiar with us.”
