ROCHESTER, N.Y. — With 2019 in full swing and workplaces officially back open after the holiday season, the PGA of America invites businesses to get in the golf spirit and countdown to the 2019 KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship this May. Businesses are invited to participate in a Workplace Putting Challenge for a chance to win Cleveland Golf gear and 10 daily Clubhouse tickets to the 80th KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship.
From January 7 to February 4, companies are encouraged to team up with colleagues to set up office courses, break out their putters and post a photo or video of their winning shot here. Five finalists will be selected, and one winning workplace will be named based on the creativity of the course and success of the shot. The winning workplace will be announced on Facebook, Friday, February 8 by 5 p.m. EST.
“Now that the calendar has turned to 2019, the countdown to the 80th KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship is officially on,” said Bryan Karns, championship director for the 2019 KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship. “We want fans to have some fun while they await golf season, so we’re hosting the Workplace Putting Competition to encourage fans to bring the course inside this month. The Workplace Putting Challenge is our way of getting Upstate New York residents and workplaces excited about the return of Championship golf this May.”
One lucky workplace will win 10 daily Clubhouse tickets to the 2019 KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship, two Cleveland Golf RTX4 Wedges and two Cleveland Golf HB SOFT putters.
