JUPITER, Fla. -- Cutting edge apparel designer Basic Golf, LLC is proud to announce it’s partnership with one of Florida’s top mini tours, the Minor League Golf Tour.

The details of the partnership include product distribution rights for Basic Golf throughout the MLGT as well as Basic Golf sponsorship of monthly MLGT events. Starting June 1, 2008, each MLGT player will receive a Basic Golf CoolDry™ shirt when they sign up or renew their annual membership and when they win a Basic Golf sponsored MLGT event. Basic Golf will also outfit the MLGT staff with customized shirts.

“We’re focusing on the MLGT’s players who we know will really benefit from this partnership,” said Basic Golf’s President and Founder, Ed Lemire. “By offering the players discounts, giveaways and promotions, we’re working on heightening their experience playing on the Minor League Golf Tour.”

About Basic Golf, LLC
Basic Golf offers high quality apparel that is cutting edge cool but won’t cost you a fortune. Using CoolDry™ fabric, the SportCool and ClassicCool shirts wick moisture away from your skin to keep you cool and comfortable especially during hot and humid rounds. Each shirt is athletically cut and uses open hem sleeves and stretch mesh ventilation under the arms for a lightweight and comfortable fit.

For years now, there has been a lack of high quality, in style apparel available at reasonable prices. In the past, if you wanted to take advantage of moisture wicking fabrics and cutting edge styles, you had to pay $60, $70… even $80 and up. The other option was to pay a lot less, but get an inferior material and uninteresting colors you didn’t really care to wear. Not anymore! At Basic Golf you'll find a unique product line that you can't find anywhere else. The newest shirts, hats and accessories made with top quality materials including CoolDry™ fabric. What you won't find are the high prices!

About the Minor League Golf Tour
The goal of the Minor League Golf Tour is to provide an affordable training ground for aspiring players to hone their game. The economics of professional golf are very harsh. Almost every player without major tour status will need to be subsidized to continue chasing the dream.

The high cost mini tours need many big money donators to raise the cash for their lottery like 1st place checks. The top players that have devoted years to professional golf and are playing near 100% of their potential play the high cost tours. These “top mini tour players” are capable of competing at the Nationwide and PGA Tour levels.

The competition on the Minor League Golf Tour is strong. 30 player who have competed on our tour qualified for the second stage of the 2007 PGA Tour Qualifying School (21 made it to the second stage in 2006). Two players who won on the MLGT in 2006 are now 2008 PGA Tour rookies and seven players 2008 Nationwide Tour status.
