Precis Smart Card Systems Inc. said it will supply its system to Sahalee Country Club in Redmond, Wash., for the PGA Championship in August.

About 7,000 stored-value cards are expected to be sold for the golf tournament, half of them in advance by mail order to country club members.

"We think the concept makes sense for a short-term event," said Tom Halsey, general manager of Sahalee Country Club. "It reduces the amount of cash changing hands, allows corporations to prepurchase food and beverages for their guests, and gives participants a souvenir to keep."
