Roger Dunn Golf Shops partners with Northern Trust Open for ticket sales

SANTA ANA, Calif. -- Roger Dunn Golf Shops is pleased to announce it has partnered with the PGA Tour and more specifically with the Northern Trust Open at the Riviera Country Club. The arrangement is for Roger Dunn Golf Shops to be the exclusive specialty golf retailer selling Northern Trust Open daily tickets in their stores.

This partnership is entering its tenth year dating back to when the Los Angeles Junior Chamber of Commerce operated the event which was known as the LA Open for decades. "We feel this partnership is a great fit for both respective brands as we each represent the heritage of golf here in California. Our brand is the longest tenured golf retailer in Los Angeles and the Northern Trust Open is a golf tournament which has hosted many golfing legends," said Al Morris, President, Worldwide Golf. "In fact our store's namesake, Roger Dunn himself, has competed in this event," added Morris.

As part of the partnership, Roger Dunn Golf Shops is offering a $10 discount to each patron on the back of their tickets, further enhancing the value of attending one of the West Coast's premier golf events. Tickets are available in stores now through Sunday of the tournament at the Roger Dunn Golf Shops in West Los Angeles, North Hollywood, Newbury Park, Seal Beach, Mission Viejo and the giant 63,000 sq. ft. superstore in Santa Ana.

About the Northern Trust Open
The Northern Trust Open, scheduled for February 12-16, 2014, is one of the longest-running tournaments on the PGA TOUR. Debuting in 1926 at Los Angeles Country Club, the event had been staged at various courses throughout the Los Angeles area before permanently settling at The Riviera Country Club in 1973. City of Hope was named the official charity of the Northern Trust Open beginning with the 2013 event. In 2013, the Northern Trust Open generated $1.3 million to benefit City of Hope, the event's official charity partner, and other non-profit organizations in the Los Angeles area.
