Leading Headwear Manufacturer Will Provide Caps To 3,000 World Amateur Participants
August 14, 2009, Myrtle Beach, S.C. – One of the nation’s oldest and most respected producers of headwear is partnering with the PGA TOUR Superstore World Amateur Handicap Championship. Imperial Headwear is the official hat provider of the 26th annual PGA TOUR Superstore World Amateur Handicap Championship.
The World Am, which will be held August 31 through September 4, is the world’s largest single-site amateur golf tournament, attracting golfers from 45 states and more than 20 foreign countries.
Imperial is providing all 3,000+ World Am participants, the tournament staff and volunteers with logoed hats.
“Imperial has long been one of America’s most popular hat-makers and its product will be a great addition to the World Am goody bag,” tournament director Dave Macpherson said. “A hat is vital to the golf wardrobe in the summer months and our players will have one of the best.”
A 72-hole stroke play tournament, the World Amateur attracts golfers of all skill levels, grouping them in tightly bunched flights based on handicap and age (there are six different divisions). Players play under PGA Tour-like conditions, though carts are allowed, competing to win their flight and a spot in the World Championship Playoff at the famed Dunes Golf & Beach Club.
At night, players gather at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center, better known as the World Largest 19th Hole. All tournament participants and a guest can attend the 19th Hole where free food from some of Myrtle Beach’s best restaurants, free drinks and live entertainment are provided.
The 19th Hole is also home to a golf expo, demo areas, instructional clinics from some of the game’s leading teachers and more.
