On the tee… a boost for junior golf

8.00am 29th March 2006 - Sponsorship

PrideSports has donated a total of 25,000 Pride Golf Tees to the Golf Foundation under the terms of an agreement which will help many a child get the ball airborne this year. Each of the 3,125 packs contains eight Professional Tee System tees.
The tees will be used during a range of Golf Foundation school and community golf initiatives, and for events like the British Golf Industry Association Golf Day and the annual Golf Foundation Pro-Am. Regional finalists and grand finalists at the relaunched Golf Foundation Junior Championships 2006 will also benefit from using the Professional Tee Systems during their competition rounds.
Mike Round, Chief Executive of the Golf Foundation, said, “This has been a very generous gesture towards junior golf and the work of the Golf Foundation by PrideSports and I think it will be one that is appreciated by all the young golfers who use the tees.”
Each Professional Tee System pack contains pairs of tees of four different lengths, designed to be used with irons, fairway woods and different sizes of driver.
Sharon Fish, European sales manager at PrideSports, said, “We are delighted to support the Golf Foundation in its quest to develop junior golf in the UK. The work the Golf Foundation carries out is vital for the development of the game at grassroots level and deserves all the support we can give it.”
“We trust the youngsters will appreciate the tees,” added Fish. “Hopefully, they will help them to learn how to tee the ball at the correct height, thereby helping to improve their scores.”
