Paylocity Holding Corporation (Nasdaq:PCTY), a cloud-based provider of payroll and human capital management software solutions, today announced a new alliance and sponsorship with PGA Tour rookie, Patton Kizzire.
As a standout golfer at Auburn University, Kizzire earned All-SEC first team honors and won the SEC Championship in 2007. After turning professional in 2008, Kizzire competed for several years on various mini tours before earning his Web.com Tour card in 2014. In 2015, Kizzire had a breakout year with eleven top-10 finishes, including victories at the Utah Open and News Sentinel Open, and led the Tour in total earnings for the season. Kizzire will make his PGA tour debut this week at the Shriners Hospitals Open in Las Vegas, NV.
The 28-year old Alabama native is currently ranked 100th in the Official World Golf Rankings and is predicted to be one of the top rookies to watch on the PGA Tour next season. Patton attributes his recent success to his move to Sea Island, Ga. and renewed commitment to working diligently on his game. “This past season has been extremely beneficial for my game and my overall confidence. I’ve always believed that I could have success at this level but recognized that I had to fully commit to working on my game to take the next step,” said Kizzire. “That’s what immediately caught my attention about Paylocity. They’re constantly evaluating and improving their solution so that they can be the best in the industry.”
Michael Haske, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Paylocity, notes, “Sponsoring a PGA Tour professional during the 2014 and 2015 season was a tremendous success for our company and overall brand. We knew that we wanted to find another up and coming PGA Tour professional that had incredible potential and also shared our commitment to innovation, drive, and results. At Paylocity, we are doing what no one else is – taking Payroll and HR professionals from the backroom to the boardroom with our cloud software. We’re confident that Patton is a perfect fit for our organization and we welcome him to the Paylocity family.”
