BOURBON, MO – November 18, 2014 – Imperial Headwear announced today their sponsorship of the 2015 Jones Cup Invitational. The Jones Cup takes place January 30 – February 1, 2015 at Ocean Forest Golf Club at Sea Island.
The Jones Cup was born from a deep commitment to amateur golf by the A.W. Jones family, who founded The Cloister and Sea Island Golf Club. First contested in 2001 as a precursor to the Walker Cup, the Jones Cup was an opportunity to celebrate the game of golf as well as the camaraderie and fellowship associated with it. The Jones Cup brings together many of the finest amateurs from the United States and abroad. Its success and popularity has been attributed to the strength of the player field. Past participants include current PGA TOUR stars like Luke Donald, Rickie Fowler, Lucas Glover, Dustin Johnson, Chris Kirk, Webb Simpson, Brandt Snedeker, Bubba Watson, Harris English, Patrick Reed, Jordan Spieth and Kyle Stanley.
“The Jones Cup Invitational showcases such an elite field that the winner now gets invited to play in the PGA Tour’s McGladrey Classic,” said David Shaffer, Director of Marketing at Imperial Headwear. “Imperial is very privileged to be involved in such an event which represents golf at it finest.”
“The Jones Cup is fortunate to have sponsors like Imperial who step up and support our tournament,” said Kory Reitz, Head Golf Professional at Ocean Forest Golf Club. “We feel strongly about the Imperial brand and their commitment to the game. It’s a great partnership we are excited to announce.”
