JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Aug. 14, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- More than 100 players who have proven they can win on the golf course have turned to to help them succeed online. As the umbrella sponsor of the Tour, Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:WWWW), a leading provider of Internet services and online marketing solutions for small businesses, is helping players and tournaments capitalize on their tour successes by removing the mystery of website design and developing engaging and informative online destinations.

"Our involvement with the PGA TOUR, through the umbrella sponsorship of the Tour, is a special relationship and we wanted to provide support that, beyond the financial benefit, truly contributed to the success of the players and tournaments involved," said David L. Brown, chairman, president and CEO of "We recognize that building a successful website can be a bit of a mystery, especially for those whose expertise lies elsewhere, such as golfers who are busy training or qualifying for the tour and for small business owners who are occupied with operating successful businesses."

As golf is an individual sport, players' names become their brands. And as customers can attest, one of the strongest brand-building tools is a full-featured, professionally designed website with the online marketing support to make it a sought-after online destination.

Visitors' ability to see a professional-looking site, easily navigate menus and locate desired information can turn a casual golf follower into a dedicated fan.

More than 100 players and tournaments associated with the PGA TOUR, Champions Tour and Tour have turned to for online assistance. The list includes well-known golfers including John Daly, Jason Dufner, Billy Horschel, Luke Guthrie, Brandt Snedeker and Jim Furyk, all Tour alumni.

Along with seeing dramatic results for personal sites, players have taken advantage of's willingness to support their small business endeavors as well. In conjunction with his personal brand site, Tour player and current money leader Michael Putnam tapped to help design and market, the site for Putnam's instructional golf products.

"As I've continued to see success on the Tour,'s expertise has been a tremendous asset to ensure that I'm maximizing my online presence and providing my fans with the information that they want," said Putnam. "As the owner of a small business with Stixtips, I understand how important online visibility can be to achieving success."
