National Car Rental and the PGA of America renewed their partnership at the 2015 PGA Merchandise Show, extending National’s designation as an Official Partner and the Official Rental Car of the PGA of America. The five-year agreement features National serving as the Official Rental Car of the PGA Championship and Senior PGA Championship presented by KitchenAid; an Official Partner of the 2016 and 2018 Ryder Cups; Title Sponsor of the National Car Rental PGA Assistant Championship and Founding Partner of the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship.
National and the PGA also announced the return of the National Car Rental PGA Pro-Am Series, which runs from March to October of this year. More than 10,000 amateur golfers participated in last year’s inaugural Pro-Am Series, which the PGA of America and National created to help further the PGA’s mission to grow interest and participation in the game of golf at the grassroots level. The Pro-Am Series links together over 90 new and existing amateur tournaments across the 41 PGA of America Sections nationwide. Keegan Bradley, winner of the 2011 PGA Championship, and his father, PGA Professional Mark Bradley, will continue to serve as ambassadors for the Series. The father-son team will also promote the National “Go Like A Pro” mobile experience, a customized, golf-themed tour bus that will travel to select events throughout the National Car Rental PGA Pro-Am Series.
