PGA Tour phasing in digital scoreboards

Golf fans at PGA Tour events will find a whole new experience beginning
next month when the PGA Tour phases in new Mitsubishi high-resolution
LED panels that will bring scoring information into the 21st century,
according to an article in the New York Times.
The boards are 7-feet 7-inches high by 20-feet 2-inches long and are
mobile, receive information wirelessly and engineered so as not to
produce glare. Steve Evans, senior vice president for information
systems for the PGA Tour, said the new, full-color scoreboards would
replace the electromechanical scoreboards the Tour has been using for
the past 20 years. They will also replace more primitive boards using
information posted by hand. The first full use of the boards is
scheduled for The Players Championship, which begins May 7 at the TPC
at Sawgrass.
