Golf manufacturer Titleist will continue its strong support of the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai when The European Tour’s season-ending event gets underway at Jumeirah Golf Estates from Thursday 20 to Sunday 23 November.
The world-famous brand has been involved in the tournament since the inaugural event in 2009 and this year will mark the sixth straight year of a sponsorship which has gone from strength to strength.
Titleist will be running a Titleist 915 Long Drive Contest as part of the free golf lesson initiative supported by the Emirates Golf Federation and the R&A. The contest will take place in the Championship Village and will run for all four days of the DP World Tour Championship. The driving range will also be stocked with 400 dozen Titleist golf balls during the week.
Geoff Hunter General Manager of Pro Sports International, official distributors of Titleist in the UAE and the Middle East said: “Our support of the DP World Tour Championship is a perfect fit as the Titleist brand is globally recognised as golf’s symbol of excellence.
“Being one of the game’s most iconic brands, Titleist is delighted to continue its long standing relationship with The European Tour, Challenge Tour and Senior Tour as an Official Partner as well as the DP World Tour Championship. Titleist is also a supporter of the ETPI at Jumeirah Golf Estates which again further enhances our relationships in the region. The excess Titleist balls left over after the tournament will be donated to junior and grassroots golf initiatives in the region and we will discuss with our stakeholders how best to put them to good use.”
Titleist is an Official Partner of The European Tour alongside other DP World Tour Championship partners Rolex, Emirates and BMW.
Titleist tour players include 2013 DP World Tour Championship and Race to Dubai Champion Henrik Stenson, Ryder Cup hero Jamie Donaldson and ISPS Handa Wales Open winner Joost Luiten.
