The McGladrey Classic, an Official PGA TOUR Event hosted by the Davis Love Foundation, has selected Imperial as the exclusive headwear partner for the 2015 tournament which will be held on the Plantation and Seaside Courses at Sea Island Golf Club November 16 – 22.
“As the leading manufacturer and marketer of premium headwear for the golf market, we are excited to partner with the Davis Love Foundation on The McGladrey Classic,” said David Shaffer, Director of Marketing at Imperial. “Through this sponsorship, we hope to further excite and engage people of all ages in the game of golf and in supporting the children and family charities which benefit from proceeds of The McGladrey Classic.”
“The selection of Imperial as our Official Headwear Sponsor was a natural fit for us,” said McGladrey Classic Tournament Director Scott Reid. “This is not the first time that Imperial has chosen to be an integral part of a golf tournament in Georgia’s Golden Isles. This past weekend, the headwear manufacturer was an event partner of the 2015 Jones Cup Invitational, one of the top amateur events in the country. Austin Connelly of Texas won the Jones Cup played at the Ocean Forest Course and will receive an invitation to play in this November’s McGladrey Classic.”
Connelly, who is #7 in the World Amateur Golf Ranking, finished second in the 2014 Jones Cup Invitational. He joins an impressive list of past Jones Cup participants including current PGA TOUR stars like Luke Donald, Rickie Fowler, Lucas Glover, Chris Kirk, Webb Simpson, Brandt Snedeker, Bubba Watson, Harris English, Patrick Reed, Jordan Spieth and Kyle Stanley.
