Yamaha to Sponsor the 2016 Official Pro-Am at The RSM Classic
SIMONS ISLAND, GA – September 27, 2016 – The Yamaha Golf-Car Company will sponsor the 2016 Pro-Am at The RSM Classic, an Official PGA TOUR Event, on Wednesday, November 16. The Pro-Am will be played on both the Plantation and Seaside courses at Sea Island Golf Club in Georgia’s Golden Isles. The courses are the same that the professional golfers will play competitive rounds on during The RSM Classic.
The Yamaha Golf-Car Company has been investing in grassroots programs designed to support and grow the game of golf through PGA of America Sectional events, the Web.com Tour, as well as a partnership with the Executive Women’s Golf Association. Armed with a rich pedigree of quality and engineering, Yamaha’s fleet, utility and personal transportation cars are enjoying a fast growing following throughout the world both on and off the golf course.
“Like most people, I’ve always been familiar with Yamaha’s high performance products within the Motorcycle, ATV, Boat and Marine industries,” said Tournament Host Davis Love III, 21-time PGA TOUR winner and Captain of the 2016 U.S. Ryder Cup Team. “Now, having spent a lot of time with their golf division, it’s easy to see that their Golf Car and Utility Car products have carried on that same high quality, reliability and high-performance position. Yamaha is an ideal fit for The RSM Classic and I’m excited to have their support of our event for the second year.”
“We are proud to support the Davis Love Foundation and be a part of the seventh annual RSM Classic. This is a great opportunity for us to support children and family charities and build relationships with our customers,” said Tom McDonald, President of the Yamaha Golf-Car Company.
The Pro-Am includes a Tuesday night Pairings Party hosted by Love and his wife, Robin. The event has become an integral part of The RSM Classic and one of the premier Pro-Am events on the PGA TOUR.
