PONTE VEDRA BEACH, FL (May 17, 2017) – The PGA TOUR today released PGA TOUR Emojis – a fun iMessage sticker and emoji keyboard pack containing over 20 animated stickers and GIFs, all designed to create a deeper level of social engagement for PGA TOUR fans and players.
The PGA TOUR emojis and stickers, which were developed by mobile messaging company Snaps, represent many aspects of a golfer’s lifestyle, illustrating key catchphrases like I’ll see you on the 19th hole, Bogey, Who’s Your Caddie and 59 Watch. There’s also an emoji for various situations or reactions on a golf course including a fist pump and golf clap.
“The PGA TOUR is always looking for new and creative ways to engage its fans,” said Scott Gutterman, PGA TOUR Vice President of Digital Operations. “The PGA TOUR Emojis keyboard is a fun way for PGA TOUR fans to interact on the golf course or while watching coverage of our events.”
A unique feature of this sticker pack is the ability to drag and drop stickers directly into an iMessage conversation. The emojis and sticker pack can be updated with new content anytime through the Snaps platform.
“There are over one billion people using iMessage every day,” said Christian Brucculeri, CEO of Snaps and mobile messaging expert. “With this sticker pack the PGA TOUR has a new way to connect with its fans on the most popular social messaging app.”
Available for free, the PGA TOUR Emojis keyboard app is available for download on iOS in the App Store, while Android users can download the app from the Google Play Store. The emoji keyboard app will debut in time for this week’s AT&T Byron Nelson where Sergio Garcia will defend his title at the TPC Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas in Irving, Texas.
