Market-leading apparel manufacturer Galvin Green has made a significant splash by becoming the title sponsors of the PGA Assistants’ Championship as part of a new relationship with the Professional Golfers’ Association.


Title sponsorship of the historic tournament is just one element of a three-year agreement between the two parties that will also see the Surrey-based company join the PGA Partner Programme.

The PGA Assistants’ Championship is the PGA’s longest-running national tournament, having first been competed for in 1930, and its past winners include former Ryder Cup captain and two-time major winner Tony Jacklin, eight time Ryder Cup player Peter Alliss and former tour pro Barry Lane.
Galvin Green is proud to be associated with such a long-standing and valued event" - Mike Johnson-Hill, managing director of Galvin Green UK

This year’s 54-hole Galvin Green PGA Assistants’ Championship will be held at Coventry Golf Club for the second successive year between August 5 and 7 and will carry a prize fund of £32,500.

More than 400 PGA assistants will tee up at seven regional qualifiers across Great Britain and Ireland in a bid to book their place for a shot at the prestigious title and a chance to win a Galvin Green wardrobe for the remainder of the season.

Galvin Green links up with the PGA


Sandy Jones, chief executive of the PGA, welcomed the new relationship with one of golf’s premier brands.

He said: “This is one of the PGA’s oldest tournaments with great traditions and some wonderful winners, many who went on to have outstanding success in their careers.

“With Galvin Green’s support we will be able to continue that fine tradition and give today’s generation of assistants a great opportunity to put their name in the history books of the association.”

Mike Johnson-Hill, managing director of Galvin Green UK, said: “Galvin Green is proud to be associated with such a long-standing and valued event and keen to support the younger generation of PGA professionals who are so important to the future of the game.”
