Yamaha inks agreement to sponsor the 2015 pro-am at The McGladrey Classic
The Yamaha Golf-Car Company will sponsor the 2015 Pro-Am at The McGladrey Classic, an Official PGA TOUR Event, on Wednesday, November 18th. For the first time, the Pro-Am Event will be played on both the Plantation Course and Seaside Course at Sea Island Golf Club in Georgia’s Golden Isles. The courses are the same that the professional golfers will play competitive rounds on during this year’s McGladrey Classic.
The Yamaha Golf-Car Company has been investing in grassroots programs designed to support and grow the game of golf through PGA of America Sectional events, the Web.com Tour, as well as a partnership with the Executive Women’s Golf Association. Over 1,400 golf courses have switched to Yamaha Golf Car products over the last five years, signaling a major shift in the industry. Armed with a rich pedigree of quality and engineering, Yamaha’s fleet, utility, and personal transportation cars are enjoying a fast growing following throughout the world both on and off the golf course.
“Like most people, I’ve always been familiar with Yamaha’s high performance products within the Motorcycle, ATV, Boat, and Marine industries,” said Tournament Host Davis Love III, 20-time PGA TOUR winner and Captain of the 2016 U.S. Ryder Cup Team. “Now, having recently spent a lot of time with their golf division, it’s easy to see that their Golf Car and Utility Car products have carried on that same high quality, reliability and high-performance position in the golf industry. Yamaha is an ideal fit for The McGladrey Classic and I’m proud to have their support of our event.” “We are proud to support the Davis Love Foundation and be a part of the sixth annual McGladrey Classic. This is a great opportunity for us to support children and family charities and build relationships with our customers,” said Tom McDonald, President of the Yamaha Golf-Car Company.
The Pro-Am includes a Tuesday night Pairings Party hosted by Love and his wife, Robin. The event has become an integral part of The McGladrey Classic and one of the premier Pro-Am events on the PGA TOUR. There are a limited number of Pro-Am spots available.
