January 28, 2014 (New York, NY) – 360 Sports Agency named as the North American Pro Golf Tour title sponsor.
360 Sports Agency has become the new title sponsor of the North American Pro Golf Tour in a deal that runs from 2014 through to 2017, the NAPGT has announced today.
Coming back from a several year hiatus, the tour featured many of the top players in the game, These are just a few of the successes that have come our way……Sean O’Hair, 2005 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year, Geoffrey Sisk, over $300k in NAPGT events made, Nationwide Tour Card 2008, 5 Time US Open Participant, 6 Time Massachusetts Open Champion, Rick Karbowski, 2006 Champions Tour Member, Kyle Gallo 2005/2006 Nationwide Member, John Elliot, Nationwide member, Rob Oppenheim, 2011/2013 Web.com member including current and future Tour professionals on pace to make it to the next level.
The Tour will be known as the North American Pro Golf Tour sponsored by 360 Sports, with the first of 10 events beginning this spring and running through the summer.
Agency CEO, Robert Licopoli, hailed the new sponsorship agreement as “a landmark” for the sport. “We’ve struggled with ways to make developmental sports feasible as many others have. We simply moved the expenses from our operating budget into our marketing budget and it works. Tour sponsorship costs are the same as what we’d normally spend on marketing. The TV commercials promoting the tour events are, at worst, breakeven for us, creating a sustainable partnership.”
Tour Director- Bart McCarthy states…. “We are pleased to join forces with 360 to enhance and promote professional golf – and give more options to professional golfers preparing for the Web.com Tour. The North American Professional Golf Tour has long been established as one of the top golfing tours in the country. Former players have used this tour and catapulted to the PGA. The groundwork has been laid the execution has been proven. The NAPGT will exist in and be based out of the New England area with (10) events planned. The Pathway to success in our business is to present a “home “or “career” opportunity for upcoming stars. Working their games, and becoming top players in their own right, competing against the best players in “New England”! College players out of school with no definitive path at an early age are perfect candidates for the North American Professional Golf Tour. Parents can trust the NAPGT as a viable test for their sons and daughters- knowing they are getting the best competition and testing their skill levels against top players from around the country. This is why we compete, this is why we have the desire to practice for endless hours, our goal is to compete at the highest level and prove to ourselves that we have what it takes. This partnership is a good fit as the NAPGT and 360 share similar goals in terms of seeking to further spread our respective brands and products nationwide.”
