It’s all go for January after the R&A and USGA published their finalised Rules of Golf. So what’s coming in? Steve Carroll outlines the changes.
Titleist Golf continues support of DP World Tour Championship
Titleist Golf continues to strengthen its bond with the DP World Tour Championship as the event in Dubai prepares for its European Tour season-ending event at Jumeriah Golf Estates from Thursday 20 to Sunday 23 November.
The world-famous brand, which boasts more players using – and winning – with their golf balls on the European Tour, has been involved in the tournament since the inaugural event in 2009. This year will mark the sixth consecutive year of the sponsorship between the two parties.
Titleist will be running a Titleist 915 Long Drive Contest as part of the free golf lesson initiative supported by the Emirates Golf Federation and the R&A. The contest, which is sure to attract a wealth of golfers to the event, will take place in the Championship Village and is set to run for all four days of the DP World Tour Championship. A driving range stocked with 400 dozen Titleist golf balls will also be on show during the week.
“Our support of the DP World Tour Championship is a perfect fit as the Titleist brand is globally recognised as golf’s symbol of excellence,” explained Geoff Hunter, General Manager of Pro Sports International, official distributors of Titleist in the UAE and the Middle East.
“Being one of the game's most iconic brands, Titleist is delighted to continue its long standing relationship with The European Tour, Challenge Tour and Senior Tour as an Official Partner as well as the DP World Tour Championship. Titleist is also a supporter of the ETPI at Jumeirah Golf Estates which again further enhances our relationships in the region. The excess Titleist balls left over after the tournament will be donated to junior and grassroots golf initiatives in the region and we will discuss with our stakeholders how best to put them to good use.”
Titleist is an Official Partner of The European Tour, sitting alongside other DP World Tour Championship partners Rolex, Emirates and BMW.
Titleist has some of the best tour players on its books, including 2013 DP World Tour Championship and Race to Dubai Champion Henrik Stenson, Ryder Cup hero Jamie Donaldson and ISPS Handa Wales Open winner Joost Luiten.
