PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. -- Cutter & Buck, which creates a premier line of golf-inspired apparel for men and women who appreciate innovative, high-quality sportswear, is renewing its supporting partnership of Golf Retirement Plus™ through 2014. Cutter & Buck has served as a partner of the program since 1999.

Cutter & Buck was founded in 1990, in Seattle, where it forged a tradition of offering consumers the best fabrics and trims, classic styling and a wide range of colors to create clothing that looks and performs impeccably. In 2007, the company became part of New Wave Group, A.B., which creates, acquires and develops branded merchandise for the corporate profiling and consumer markets, mainly within the clothing, accessory and gift sectors.

"Cutter & Buck has embraced a heritage of superb craftsmanship in its innovative apparel, which has been relied upon by both professional and amateur golfers worldwide for more than 20 years," said PGA President Allen Wronowski. "The PGA of America is very proud that Cutter & Buck is renewing its supporting partnership of the Golf Retirement Plus program, as this long-term commitment further illustrates why PGA Professionals are the ones that golfers turn to for expert advice on purchasing high quality products in golf merchandise and apparel."

Cutter & Buck's customers expect a level of quality, craftsmanship and style that is superior in the marketplace. The company is committed to exceeding these expectations by offering distinctively original products and exceptional customer service.

"We are pleased to continue our support of Golf Retirement Plus, a program that is closely aligned with Cutter & Buck's goal of supporting the PGA Professional," said Anne Broholm, global director of golf sales, Cutter & Buck. "We value the partnership we have had with PGA Professionals over the past 20 years and look forward to working with them for many years to come."

Founded in 1997, Golf Retirement Plus is a retirement program for PGA Professionals and apprentices, GCSAA Superintendents, and CMAA Club Managers, which allows them to make their own contributions or have their employers contribute to their Golf Retirement Plus account on their behalf. PGA Professionals may also earn personal incentives by participating in the Golf Retirement Plus Partner Programs.
