About the Series
Over the past two years, more than 20,000 golfers have participated in more than 200 tournaments across the PGA of America’s 41 Sections, as part of the National Car Rental PGA Pro-Am series. As we look to continue the success in 2016, the goal remains the same: To provide an exciting opportunity for PGA Professionals and thousands of amateur golfers nationwide to experience the fun and excitement of competing in these tournaments.
We’re excited to announce that 2011 PGA Champion Keegan Bradley will return as our Pro-Am Series Ambassador. Also, returning to support the Pro-Am Series are Keegan’s father, PGA Professional Mark Bradley, and his aunt, LPGA legend Pat Bradley. Furthermore, National’s “Go Like A Pro” mobile experience will be back on the road and rolling across the country again this year. The bus will serve as the official scoring center, and will be outfitted with Trackman, a re-gripping service, and access to the newest clubs and technology from Cleveland/Srixon.
The 2016 Pro-Am Series runs from February through mid-December, and this year will offer the opportunity for eight fully-enrolled Emerald Club teams to win a VIP golf experience with the Bradleys.
On behalf of National Car Rental and the PGA of America, we’re excited to continue to grow the Pro-Am Series brand together with you.
