Zero Friction Signs As Sponsor Of Chicago District Golf Association
Zero Friction, LLC, maker of high-quality, technologically advanced products for golfers worldwide, has signed on as a major sponsor of the 2019 CDGA Scramble Tour, and also as the “Official Tee Sponsor” of the Chicago District Golf Association.
The 2019 CDGA Scramble Tour will be played at nine Chicago area golf courses, with the championship being hosted at Bowes Creek CC in Elgin, IL on September 13th. Zero Friction will be on hand at the events and will also provide prizes at certain events. As the Official Tee Sponsor, Zero Friction Maxx 3-Prong Tees with CDGA logos will be available to all CDGA contestants on the range and first tee of every CDGA event this season.
“The Chicago District Golf Association provides great benefits and access to tournament play for amateur golfers in the Chicago area,” said Dan Pady, Business Development Manager at Zero Friction. “Since Zero Friction is a Chicago area-based golf company, we are very excited to be at CDGA events this year to connect with Chicago area golfers that have long supported our golf products.”
“By marketing, promoting and offering a Zero Friction Super Tube to new or renewed CDGA memberships at the Chicago Golf Show, we increased our overall membership sign up compared to past years, and we also created quite a frenzy for the Chicago Golf Show,” said Mike Gilligan, Senior Business Development Director of the CDGA. “The Super Tubes were a HUGE success!”
The CDGA is the regional governing body for amateur golf in Illinois and parts of three other states. The CDGA services nearly 400 clubs and 80,000 individual golfers. Golfers receive member offers, a USGA Handicap Index® and competitive playing opportunities, while clubs receive USGA rating and measuring services, turfgrass diagnostics and educational seminars. Founded on March 18, 1914, the CDGA is one of the largest and oldest golf associations in the United States.
Zero Friction enjoyed a very successful showing at the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, where the company received the ING Industry Honors Product Ingenuity award for its successful SuperTube packaging of color-matched glove, Spectra™ distance golf balls and tees.
Zero Friction recently launched additional expanded logo programs including logo golf balls, gloves, and tees, which have experienced significant growth this past year. Licensed gloves and Supertubes featuring NFL, MLB, NHL and the top 20 collegiate teams are also one of Zero Friction’s hottest selling items.
