North Florida PGA and Chase54 announce Apparel PARTNERship

NEW Collaboration to Launch During Section Championship


The North Florida PGA announces an integrated partnership with CHASE54 Apparel, kicking off during its
NFPGA Section Championship September 16 – 18, 2014.  The apparel brand will provide the NFPGA with
shirts  for all the players in the four major championships of the Section, including; Match Play, Chapter
Championships, PNC and Section Championship through the end of 2017. CHASE54 will also outfit the NFPGA
Cup  Teams and NFPGA Board and Staff. In addition, CHASE54 will contribute a percentage of sales within
the Section to distribute between the Chapters, Section Programs and Foundation.  


“This is a significant commitment from CHASE54 that will greatly enhance and benefit the NFPGA tournament
series,” says Rich Smith, Executive Director/CEO of the
North Florida PGA. “It’s a wonderful win-win
opportunity for the North Florida Section and its PGA Professionals,” he adds. “The North Florida PGA
looks forward to nurturing this partnership for many years to come.”


“There is nothing more valuable to CHASE54 than industry people like the NFPGA communities experiencing
our innovative apparel,” says Doug Risher, National Sales Manager for CHASE54. “As a Florida resident,
it’s remarkable how the region has responded to CHASE54. A partnership of this caliber will continue
elevating our brand throughout the industry and beyond. It’s a key indicator of where the company is headed and
we’re truly appreciative of the opportunity,” he adds.
