NEW YORK, NY – S’well, creator of the original fashion hydration accessory, and the PGA of America, one of the world’s largest sports organizations, have created a first-of-its-kind collector’s bottle commemorating the 2019 PGA Championship, which will be played at Bethpage State Park’s Black Course in Farmingdale, N.Y., May 13-19, 2019. The partnership originated in an effort to further PGA’s sustainability initiatives and reach new audiences.
The PGA of America is putting significant emphasis on its corporate social responsibility efforts, speaking to the growing social consciousness of the golf community. The partnership with S’well is a positive step toward creating a more sustainable community.
“S’well offers an array of products, all of which provide the consumer with a myriad of choices to reflect their chosen lifestyle,” said Luke Reissman, PGA of America Senior Director of Partnerships. “At the PGA of America, we’re excited to align with our friends at S’well because the game of golf and their bottles are not only compatible, but they are both sustainable, technologically advanced and personal in nature.”
Debuting as the first textured S’well product, the 2019 PGA Championship Golf Bottle features a dimpled outer shell and lustrous sheen – just like a golf ball. Its unique, uniform finish creates an elevated look. Featuring triple-walled, high-grade stainless steel, the 2019 PGA Championship Golf Bottle keeps beverages cold for up to 24 hours and hot for up to 12, while maintaining a condensation-free exterior.
“The bottle design embodies the beauty of this sport – tradition, appeal and reach,” said Rachel Ivey, VP, Creative Director, S’well. “Because of the innovative design and a textured finish, reminiscent of a golf ball, we knew the PGA would be the perfect partner to bring this design to market.”
Furthering excitement and support of the partnership, S’well is working with the PGA of America to create an extended run of the collection customized with logos for select courses across the country. These other products will debut over the coming weeks.
The 2019 PGA Championship Golf Bottle is now available for purchase on shop.pga.com for $45.
