The company decided to be considerate by operating a lounge exclusively for caddies during this tournament. In addition, 260 vehicles are supported. Song Min-gyu, head of the Genesis business division, said, “We will continue to provide sincere support not only for golf but also for community support through ‘bold dedication’.”
Genesis announced that it would donate $1 million over five years to the TGR Foundation, where Tiger Woods is located, to help educate local youth. The foundation decided to use some of the donations to launch educational programs for designers at the Genesis Design Studio. Genesis has previously sponsored the event since 2017.
