The PGA of America announced that it will allow Distance-Measuring-Devices (DMD) during its three 2021 annual major Championships: The PGA Championship at Kiawah Island’s Ocean Course, the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship at the Atlanta Athletic Club, and the Kitchen Aid Senior PGA Championship at Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa. The PGA Championship at Kiawah will be the first event to feature DMDs.
With the announcement from the PGA of America regarding the use of DMDs during their majors, GOLFBUDDY America is excited to announce Tour Professional Dylan Frittelli has joined their team of AIM ambassadors.
“I’m thrilled to be a part of team GOLFBUDDY,” said Frittelli. “Accurate distance measurement is such an important part of my preparation on Tour and GOLFBUDDY has made it clear that they exemplify that.”
The GOLFBUDDY America AIM Ambassador Team is now headlined by Dylan and Golf Channel personality/ semi-retired Tour professional Charlie Rymer.
