The TGI Golf Partnership, Europe’s leading golf retail services group owned by PGA Professionals, has helped apparel brand PING Collection to three years of sustained growth.

PING Collection has been a TGI Golf Partner Supplier for the past decade, working closely with the group to offer Partners exclusive products and offers, which has helped them to grow extensively over recent years.

Last year the brand recorded impressive sales growth with TGI Golf, increasing by just over 28% compared to 2010, extending the company’s controlled growth over the last three years following a 71% increase in 2010 to 2009 and a promising start to this financial year, which is 63% higher than this time last year.

Eddie Reid, TGI Golf Partnership Managing Director, said: “We have enjoyed a close working partnership with PING Collection for some time. The brand was voted ‘Best Apparel Product’ following our 2010 Suppliers Survey, where Partners rank our Partner Suppliers on their performance in a number of criteria over the year.

“As with all of our Partner Suppliers we work hard together to ensure both theirs and our Partners’ businesses continue to succeed.”

The TGI Golf Partnership’s retail and marketing team works closely with all Partner Suppliers to offer Partners exclusive margin-making closeout deals, branded and personalised marketing material through its Online PrintSystem and competition prizes for Partners’ customers through the Enewsletter Programme.

Claire Brown, PING Collection National Account Manager, added: “We value our partnership with TGI Golf and our continued sales growth is testimony to the support it and its Partners continue to provide. Our green grass retailers are of vital importance to the brand and the team is dedicated to providing a first class product range and service to all accounts.

“TGI Golf Partners are incredibly important to PING Collection and we look forward to enhancing our strong relationship with them over the coming years.”

TGI Golf Partners own Europe’s leading golf retail services group. Its business is dedicated to its Partners’ profitability and that of its carefully selected Suppliers. Partners share the profits created, while Suppliers benefit from the success of the unique business, powered by PGA Professionals.
