The world’s biggest golf tournament also awards one of the grandest swag bags to each and every participant. That means almost 3400, World Am participants from all over the world will receive goodies they can make use of this week and for years to come. Golfers have been registering for this annual event that is being held August 30 to September 5, 2015 on more that 60 different golf courses in and around Myrtle Beach.
“It’s a great gift bag,” offers Scott Tomasello, Events Division at the Myrtle Beach World Amateur Handicap Championship. “It’s (made up of) popular and quality items that golfers use.”
Each year, World Am players find the usual hat, and golf shirt, but what the Myrtle Beach World Am does is add in new items each year, and ask the participants for their feedback. The feedback is generally positive and the smiles on the faces of the men and women picking up their swag bags at one of the local PGA Tour Superstores is always a great sign for event organizers.
This year, both the men and women entrants are taking home some serious high tech gear. How about the Greg Norman Play Dry Protek Micro Lux Pollo along with the Greg Norman Heathered 1/4 Zip Pullover. This is high performance golfwear that will help you look and play your best. The Heathered Pullover is made of a Polyester and Spandex combination that will hold up in the elements. The World Am logo really stands out on these items. Players will also get one of the most used items on the golf course, a caddie-quality towel. This year, it’s the PlayKleen Proline 17″ x 37″ Microfiber Towel, a towel that has a waffle texture and a microfiber that will hold up to 300% of it’s weight in water. Professional golfers love these towels, so it’s great to see the World Am players get in on the act. Again this year, a World Am Toiletry Bag is included along with a World Am logo-ed hat with just the logo on the front of the cap. This is kind of a new trend in caps, but the World Am text/logo is fashionably on the side of the cap. John Daly, who will be making a guest appearance at the Am this year has included a bottle of his new John Daly branded vodka cocktail for all over 21 to enjoy. A nice bag tag and a $20 gift card to PGA Tour Superstore are also handed to entrants at check in locations. Players can also spend some time reading the World Am program that also comes in the gift bag.
Women aren’t left out as they the women’s versions of the apparel in the Greg Norman Ladies Protek Micro Pique Polo and the Greg Norman Women’s Heathered 1/4 Zip. The Greg Norman Collection fits women perfectly and they all love the colors and designs.
Value of these gift bags approaches $300 and the articles come in handy during the four rounds of golf that will be played this week in Myrtle Beach. You can follow all the action this week from Myrtle Beach and see all the great courses the players will be playing here.
