“We are so thrilled and excited to have Titleist and FootJoy as the inaugural presenting sponsor of our PGA Training Academy,” said PGA of Canada CEO Kevin Thistle. “For nearly 50-years Titleist & FootJoy have played an integral role in the support of PGA of Canada and its members and we couldn’t be more pleased to have them committed to this longstanding partnership for years to come.”

As part of the partnership, Titleist & FootJoy will be recognized as an education sponsor for PGA of Canada Zone education seminars and will supply keynote speakers and content.

“The launch of the PGA Training Academy represents an exciting time for the PGA of Canada and it’s more than 3,500 members across the country. We are looking forward to this new chapter in our partnership with the Association and to playing an integral role in supporting the advancement of its members. We want to thank all PGA members for your leadership in golf and for your continued support of the Titleist and FootJoy brands,”  said Ted Manning, President, Acushnet Canada Inc.

PGA of Canada members will also be privy to Titleist University online training modules that will count towards re-specialization credits within the PGA Training Academy. PGA of Canada equipment fitting workshops will also be held at Titleist fitting centres around the country.
