Bag Boy to be Presenting Sponsor of Symetra Tour's Eagle Classic

RICHMOND, Va. -- Bag Boy has been named the presenting sponsor of Symetra Tour's Eagle Classic at Richmond Country Club in Richmond, Va. The 54-hole event will be contested Aug. 16-18. This is Bag Boy's second year as the presenting sponsor of the tournament. Bag Boy will use its sponsorship this week to promote its popular product line of push carts, golf bags and travel covers.

"We are very excited to once again welcome women's professional golf to Richmond," said Craig Ramsbottom, President of Dynamic Brands. "Over the years, the community has rallied behind the tournament and I expect attendance to be strong again this year. It has been a wonderful experience being part of this tournament which benefits FeedMore, a charity that provides relief for the hungry in Central Virginia."

As presenting sponsor Bag Boy has full week of events scheduled:

• Monday, August 12 - Ladies Night at Golf Galaxy (9860 Broad St. Glenn Allen, Va.)
6 - 8 p.m., Symetra Tour players will be signing autographs and Bag Boy will offer product giveaways.
• Tuesday, August 13 - Practice Rounds, Bag Boy will have product available for fans and players to demo.
• Wednesday, August 14 and Thursday, August 14 - Pro-Ams, Bag Boy will have push carts available for participants to demo on a par-3 and then be entered to win a push cart or travel cover. Also fans will be able to demo Bag Boy push carts on-site during the Pro-Am.

"As the Tournament Director and a PGA Head Professional, I have worked with Dynamic Brands and their companies in our merchandising operation at Richmond Country Club and we are very excited to have them as a partner for the Eagle Classic," said Matthew Schulze, Head Professional Richmond Country Club. "To have a major golf manufacturer, locally based, continue to support our Symetra Tour event is awesome. The success and growth of the Eagle Classic would not be possible without Dynamic Brands commitment to keeping women's professional golf in Richmond."

A portion of the proceeds from the Eagle Classic for the past two years has gone to FeedMore, a charity that helps fight hunger in Central Virginia. Tickets for the event are $10 per day or $25 for all three rounds. Children 15 and under get in free when accompanied by a ticket holding adult.
