Club Glove Continues Extended Partnership with the Palmer Cup
HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA – Club Glove® – The leader in premium American-made travel luggage, golf bags, club covers and accessories – is proud to again be the luggage provider for both United States and European teams for the annual Palmer Cup.
Over the last seventeen years, The Palmer Cup has become an iconic tournament in the golf world and Club Glove has been providing luggage for the Palmer Cup teams since 2001. Both players and coaches from the United States and Europe use Club Glove customized Golf Travel bags and Duffle bags.
“We are very pleased that Club Glove has decided to extend their Corporate Partnership with the GCAA. As one of our longest continuing partnerships their support has contributed to the growth and visibility of the Palmer Cup each year. Club Glove continues to produce tremendous golf travel bags that are a great asset to the players in our event,” says Gregg Grost, CEO of Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA).
The tournament originated in 1997 and was originally played between collegiate players from The United States, Great Britain and Ireland until 2003 when the tournament restructured to become U.S.A. vs. Europe. Palmer Cup alumni have gone on to claim 148 victories on the PGA or European Tours since 1997 and past participants include such names as Graeme McDowell, Hunter Mahan, Bill Haas and Luke Donald.
The 2015 Palmer Cup Event will be played at Rich Harvest Farms in Sugar Grove, IL on June 12-14.
Club Glove is the undisputed No. 1 professional and collegiate golf travel bag brand. Used by more Tour players than any other product in golf, the Last Bag was named one of the sport's top 10 innovations of the last 20 years by Golf Digest.
