Yamaha Golf-Car Company to Continue Sponsorship of RSM Classic Pro-Am Through 2020
Kennesaw, Ga. (March 13, 2019) – Yamaha Golf-Car Company, the industry-leading golf car manufacturer that sets the standard for fleet, light utility, and personal transportation vehicles, announced its continued sponsorship of the RSM Classic Pro-Am through year 2020.
Yamaha has been an avid supporter of the RSM Classic and the Davis Love Foundation for over five years now. By extending their sponsorship, Yamaha Golf-Car Company will continue to be a Tournament Partner through the 2020 RSM Classic Pro-Am.
“Contributing to the Davis Love Foundation, through the RSM Classic Pro-Am, was an easy choice for us,” said Tom McDonald, President of Yamaha Golf-Car Company. “Not only has this partnership enabled us to connect with industry leaders on a more meaningful level, but we’ve also been able to help grow DLF’s collective impact by connecting them to golf initiatives, like the LPGA Foundation’s Girls Golf, that directly speaks to their mission. That’s been the most thrilling part of all this.”
Since its 2010 inception, the RSM Classic has raised more than $9 million in donations to propel the mission impact of community-based organizations nationwide.
“Yamaha Golf Car has been a great partner of the Davis Love Foundation and sponsor of The RSM Classic Pro-Am. They have been instrumental in helping make our Pro-Am one of the highlight events leading into The RSM Classic, an official event of the PGA TOUR,” said Davis Love III, 21-time PGA TOUR winner and World Golf Hall of Fame member. "Yamaha is a true leader in our industry, and we are excited to continue to work with Tom and his great team, especially as we celebrate the 10th anniversary of the tournament this year.”
