BIRMINGHAM, Ala.
( April 14, 2022) – The Elite Amateur Golf Series (EAGS), launching in summer 2022, will partner with Titleist and FootJoy of the Acushnet Company.  
 
As the “Premier Equipment Partner of the Elite Amateur Golf Series”, Titleist , the #1 ball in golf and one of golf’s leading performance brands, and FootJoy, the #1 shoe and glove in golf and one of golf’s top performance wear brands - will be activating onsite at each event, providing exclusive support, and enhancing the player experience for the next generation of elite amateurs. 
 
“Titleist and FootJoy are proud to announce a partnership with the new Elite Amateur Golf Series.  Supporting the amateur game has always been a key focus of our brands,” said Alicia Madden, Director of Media, Acushnet Company. “The Elite Amateur Golf Series presents us with an exciting opportunity to further support dedicated golfers seeking to advance their games to the next level. We are excited for this opportunity to partner with the Elite Amateur Golf Series as we, together, enrich and elevate the amateur golfer experience.” 
 
The Elite Amateur Golf Series events are the Sunnehanna Amateur, Northeast Amateur, North & South Amateur, Trans-Mississippi Amateur, Southern Amateur, Pacific Coast Amateur and the Western Amateur.  
 
“The Elite Amateur Golf Series is very appreciative to Titleist and FootJoy for supporting our efforts,” stated Andy Priest, executive director of the Southern Golf Association and chairperson for the EAGS. “Since the first conversation held many months ago regarding the work being done to form the EAGS, Titleist and FootJoy were highly engaged and expressed their desire to align with our group. One of our goals is to partner with the best brands, not only from the golf industry, but across all major categories and working with Titleist and FootJoy is setting that standard from the outset”. 
 
Within the Elite Amateur Golf Series is a summer-long competition named the Elite Amateur Cup. Using the seven series event results from the World Amateur Golf Ranking (WAGR) as the Elite Amateur Cup point system, top finishers in the final standings will earn exemptions into PGA Tour, Korn Ferry Tour, USGA Championships and other professional playing opportunities to be announced later.  
 
The EAGS is supporting a similar effort with elite women’s amateur events to provide similar opportunities for the best female amateurs in the world. The Women’s Elite Amateur Golf Series (WEAGS) will launch in 2023. Details are currently under review for WEAGS events, but they are likely to mirror the EAGS structure.
