Apple Pay coming to PGA Tour courtesy of MasterCard

MasterCard has announced that they will be bringing Apple Pay to the PGA Tour. Golf fans will be able to use Apple's contactless payment feature later this week during the Phoenix Open in Scottsdale, Arizona. The Phoenix Open will be the first PGA Tour stop to accept Apple Pay, and customers using it with their MasterCards will be eligible for MasterCard's Priceless Surprise rewards, according to Business Wire:

The acceptance of easy-to-use contactless payments, fully integrated into concession technology, is just the beginning of how MasterCard and the PGA TOUR are delivering an enhanced experience to golf spectators. MasterCard cardholders who use Apple Pay at supported course concessions during the Waste Management Phoenix Open – which begins Thursday, January 29th on The Golf Channel – may also get a Priceless Surprise!

Apple Pay first made its debut in October 2014, and is currently available in the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
