FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (March 23, 2011) - Gateway Pro Tour announced today that Players Towel, a leading performance golf towel manufacturer based in Scottsdale, has renewed its sponsorship deal with the Gateway Pro Tour for the 2011 season.
Designed by a former LPGA caddie, Players Towel's microfiber technology provides the best absorption and cleaning characteristics available on the market, allowing for optimal groove cleaning, absorption and durability. While traditional heavy cotton cloth towels push dirt and moisture around, the Players Towel microfiber technology picks up dirt and moisture, holding it in the cloth and off the equipment, resulting in cleaner, dryer equipment and enhanced player performance.
"The Players Towel is pleased to continue its sponsorship of the Gateway Pro Tour," said Patrick Le Vine founder of the Players Towel. "With more than 125 Gateway alumni currently playing on the PGA TOUR and Nationwide Tour, we feel it is important to support these aspiring PGA TOUR professionals. Gateway Pro Tour is one of the leading developmental golf tours, and with the tournaments being played here in the Southwest, it was only natural for us to continue our support of these golfers as they pursue their dreams of a PGA TOUR career."
"Players Towel has been an avid supporter of GPT since 2009," said Ryan Pray, Executive Director of Gateway Pro Tour. "Our players love using the towels and Patrick has developed solid relationships with the players on our tour."
Available in custom logos, signatures, colors and an optional "Putterslit," Players Towel is an essential part of one's golf game and makes an ideal tee gift for corporate, charity and club outings. Players Towels are sold online at www.playerstowel.com and at leading pro-shops and resorts around the world.
Sponsors provide an essential resource for Gateway Pro Tour. Some of the ways sponsor money allows for the continued growth, success, and recognition of Gateway Pro Tour are - Tour expansion, increased purse sizes, Nationwide and PGA TOUR exemptions, Q-School bonuses, administration, tournament equipment and materials, charity golf tournaments, community involvement and enhanced membership benefits.
Established in 2001, the Gateway Pro Tour was created to help aspiring PGA TOUR professionals fine-tune their skills in competitive golf tournaments. In its 10-year history, the Tour has maintained a leading position as the premier developmental professional golf tour on the West Coast. Today, Gateway continues to provide the ideal competitive environment as well as significant financial opportunities for aspiring PGA TOUR and Nationwide Tour professionals. The Gateway Pro Tour features 30 events January through October in Arizona and California.
