From the Arizona Golf Authority Golf News Desk
SCOTTSDALE, Arizona – Summit Golf Brands, the parent company behind three of the golf industry’s premium golf sportswear brands, including Zero Restriction, EP Pro, and Fairway & Greene has signed on as the newest sponsor of the Gateway Pro Tour. This partnership comes one month after the Tour announced Weitz Construction as a sponsor, so the Gateway Tour is on a roll!
Sponsorship funds provide an essential resource for the Gateway Pro Tour and ensure its continued growth by covering expenditures for 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 for the Tour’s players.
Established in 2001, the Gateway Pro Tour was created to help aspiring PGA TOUR professionals fine-tune their skills in competitive golf tournaments. Throughout its 11-year history, the Tour has maintained a leading position as the premier developmental professional golf tour on the West Coast and has paid out more than $42.1 million to players over that period of time.
The Gateway Tour has served more than 3,400 players, with 160 GPT alums currently playing on the Nationwide and PGA Tours. These players represent 21 PGA Tour wins and 71 Nationwide Tour wins. Today, Gateway Pro Tour continues to provide the ideal competitive environment as well as significant financial opportunities for aspiring PGA TOUR and Nationwide Tour professionals.
