Club Glove announces new partnership with Golf Channel Am Tour

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. -- Club Glove - a worldwide leader in the design and manufacture of premium golf bags, club covers, travel bags, accessories and luggage - announces a multi-year partnership with the Golf Channel Am Tour, providing participants at select Am Tour Major Championships with its popular Caddy Towel and awarding winners at select Major Championships and all National Championship winners with the renowned Last Bag.

Through this relationship, players competing on the world's largest amateur tour will be exposed to the many benefits of golf's leading microfiber towel and travel gear. In addition to receiving products, Am Tour members will also have access to special pricing on select items from the Club Glove line.

"With more than 800 events annually featuring passionate players of all abilities, the Am Tour is a tremendous venue to showcase our industry-leading technologies," says company founder Jeff Herold. "It's also a huge benefit to the golfers who get to use the same Made-in-the-USA pieces trusted by nine-out-of-10 PGA Tour stars."

Favored by the game's best, Club Glove's Caddy Towel ($19.95) features a contoured surface strong enough to remove dirt and debris from the club face, yet gentle enough to safely clean eyeglasses or wipe away sunblock. The famed Last Bag was recently honored as one of the game's "10 Best Innovations" in recognition of its extreme durability and practicality.

"We are excited to offer Club Glove's popular, American-made gear to our loyal members, and are proud to partner with one of the leaders in the industry," says Kenny Booth, Golf Channel senior director of events.

Featuring more than 5 million yards of microfiber strands, each Caddy Towel can hold 300 percent of its weight in water. Easily distinguishable at all PGA Tour events by its waffle texture and contrasting stitched trim, the ultra-lightweight towels are super absorbent and virtually lint free. They are available at thousands of the finest public and private facilities nationwide, including Sports Authority, Golf Galaxy, Golfsmith, PGA Tour Superstores, Edwin Watts, Academy Sports and Worldwide Golf.

Club Glove is also the No. 1 golf travel bag brand at all PGA and Champions Tour events. The Darrell Survey confirmed the company's products are preferred by 90 percent of PGA Tour Players. Selected by six U.S. Ryder Cup teams, Club Glove's high-end golf bags have been a fixture at green grass and off course shops for nearly a decade and are available in stand, cart and Sunday versions.
