ACTON, ON, April 1 /CNW/ - The Canadian PGA announced a new national partnership today with Mr. Lube Canada, Canada's leading auto maintenance provider. As a result of this partnership, they have officially welcomed Mr. Lube as the title sponsor of the prestigious Canadian PGA Seniors' Championship.
"The Canadian PGA Seniors' Championship is a fantastic event and one of our most competitive fields every year," stated Gary Bernard, Executive Director of the Canadian PGA. "We are confident that the clients and guests of Mr. Lube and the Mr. Lube Foundation are going to enjoy every minute of this tournament with our professionals."
The Mr. Lube Canadian PGA Seniors' Championship will kick off with the Mr. Lube Tournament for Life for Pro-Am, an annual charity event in support of prostate cancer research. As a partner of both the Canadian PGA and Mr. Lube Canada, Prostate Cancer Canada helps to battle this disease by building awareness and generating funds for research.
"We are proud to be entering into two very important partnerships that will not only support the community, but also give back to a worthy cause," said Stuart Suls, President & Chief Operating Officer of Mr. Lube Canada. "Our goal is to ensure that this event is recognized as one of the greatest Pro-Am events in the country."
Every group in the Mr. Lube Tournament for Life will be paired with a Canadian PGA Senior Professional. In addition to the 'Legends of Golf Clinic' and 'Tournament for Life' opening tee shot, a handful of Canada's greatest senior players and Hall of Famers will entertain and educate guests prior to their round.
The Canadian PGA Seniors' Championship will be held from July 5th to 8th at RattleSnake Point Golf Club on the Copperhead course in Milton, Ontario. Player announcements will be made in the weeks leading up to the Championship.
In 2009, Ray Stewart of Abbotsford, BC fired a final round 68 to finish the 54-hole championship at a ten-under-par total of 206 to beat Ken Tarling of Sandford, ON and Norm Jarvis of Surrey, BC by two shots.
