Galvin Green is delighted to announce the continued sponsorship of the PGA Assistants’ Championship for the second year running. The agreement with the PGA will re-enforce the brands supporting role in the next generation of PGA Professionals across Great Britain and Ireland.
This year’s Galvin Green PGA Assistant’s Championship final will be held at a new venue – Little Aston Golf Club in Sutton Coldfield from 3-5 August – following seven regional qualifying events across the U.K and Ireland in May at prestigious venues such as Craigielaw Golf Club, East Lothian (PGA Scotland), County Meath in Trim (PGA Ireland) and Purdis Heath Golf Club in Ipswich (PGA East).
Around 120 Assistant Professionals will compete for the first prize of £5,000, a Galvin Green wardrobe and entry to the end of season PGA Play-Offs and the Australian PGA Futures Championship.
“Galvin Green is once again proud to be part of a long-standing event supporting the future generation of PGA Professionals,” said Greg Pearse, Managing Director of Galvin Green UK.
In a new feature for the 2016 season, different coloured Ventil8 shirts will be worn to signify the leader overnight as part of an on-going commitment by the leading high-performance clothing brand.
The PGA’s longest running event was established in 1930 – pre-dating the US Masters by four years – is notoriously difficult to win with players only eligible to compete in the championship during their three years of training.
Past winners include legendary TV commentator Peter Alliss and former Open champion and Ryder Cup captain Tony Jacklin.
Galvin Green first sponsored the event in 2015, with Jack Harrison winning by four shots at the Coventry Golf Club.
