Lexington, Kentucky (June 26, 2023) – Kinetic Business, a leading provider of advanced network communications, has partnered for a fourth year with Barbasol Championship as the official fiber internet, streaming and technology solutions partner for a premier golf tournament at Champions at Keene Trace Golf Club in Nicholasville July 13 – 16.
Kinetic Business will showcase tech solutions backed by fiber internet by providing broadcast capabilities for the tournament, as well as complimentary Wi-Fi for those attending. Additionally, Kinetic Business will stream the tournament live over the same fiber backbone for guests in all hospitality areas.
“Our partnership with Kinetic Business provides the Barbasol Championship with a seamless fan and player experience,” said tournament director Darren Nelson. “The technology provided by Kinetic Business allows fans to watch professional golf on television and guests on site to have an enhanced experience.”
Like any PGA TOUR event, the Barbasol drives tourism and business development to the central Kentucky region. It is estimated that the Barbasol Championship generates more than $20 million annually in economic impact to the Commonwealth of Kentucky. This year’s purse is nearly $4 million.
Kinetic Business is currently involved in a multi-year $2 billion fiber investment across its 18-state footprint. As a result of its multi-state network expansion, the company either has or will have fiber in every county it serves in Kentucky over the next couple of years. From 2019 through 2022, the company invested more than $307 million in the Commonwealth.
“We’re proud to partner with the PGA Tour and see the Barbasol Championship being played here again at Champions,” said Brian Harman, president of Kinetic Business operations in Kentucky. “We live and work in this community, and we’re committed to supporting our neighboring businesses with the right products and services that will help them do what they do best… even better. Many of the solutions that fans and players will use at this tournament are available to businesses in the Lexington area.”
