If you follow professional golf and own an iOS device, MasterCard has some great news for you. This season, Apple Pay will be accepted at stops on the PGA Tour thanks to a partnership with Prom Management Group, which provides catering to 38 professional golf tour events.
This means that visitors to this week’s Waste Management Phoenix Open can make purchases using their iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus at supported course concessions.
According to Matt Barr, Group Head, U.S. Emerging Payments, MasterCard:
We’re thrilled to partner with the PGA TOUR to bring contactless acceptance to stops on the 2015 schedule. Through our long-standing relationship with PGA TOUR we are constantly looking for opportunities to create enhanced spectator experiences both on-course and online, whether that’s through advanced payment capabilities or delivering surprises to fans.
First announced in September, all of Apple Pay works on the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and Apple Watch. You can make in-app purchases with Apple Pay with the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air 2, and iPad mini 3.
The Waste Management Phoenix Open begins on Thursday, Jan. 29 and continues through Sunday, Feb. 1.
