Jacksonville-area companies extend support of Web.com Tour’s season-ending event
ATLANTIC BEACH, Fla. – The Web.com Tour Championship announced today a three-year extension with Legacy Trust Family Wealth Offices, as well as PIVOT CPAs as the tournament’s Official CPA Firm and sponsor of the PIVOT Poolside Lounge. The 2017 tournament will be contested at Atlantic Beach Country Club the week of September 25 – October 1, with 25 players earning 2017-18 PGA TOUR cards for a total of 50 cards throughout the 2017 Web.com Tour season.
“We are thrilled to announce the extension of Legacy Trust’s sponsorship and welcome PIVOT CPAs as the Official CPA Firm of Web.com Tour Championship.” said Adam Renfroe, Tournament Manager. “Legacy Trust has been with us since 2013 and their confidence in our event led to our partnership with PIVOT CPAs. With the three-year support of these leading companies, Web.com Tour Championship will continue to have significant economic and charitable impact in our community while we usher in the next wave of PGA TOUR stars.”
For a second consecutive year, the North Florida Junior Golf Shootout presented by Legacy Trust will kick off the finale to the Web.com Tour season. Legacy Trust, which has partnered with the Web.com Tour Championship since 2013, will be the presenting sponsor for the initiative, which pairs Web.com Tour pros with area juniors for a fun and exciting shootout to start the week in Atlantic Beach on Monday, September 25 at 4:00 p.m. (ET).
In addition to the Shootout, Legacy Trust will serve as official sponsor of the Web.com Tour Championship volunteers. The PGA TOUR annually relies on volunteers as a foundation for each of its events, with over 100,000 utilized each year throughout the world. For more information on volunteering for the tournament, please visit WebTourChampionship.com.
“Our motivation for being part of this tournament is ultimately to be involved with our community,” stated Legacy Trust Chairman and CEO, Kristin McLauchlan. She continued, “The volunteers serve as the backbone of events like this and we want to support their hard work. We also feel strongly about junior golf, particularly the NFJG and all they do for the game, so it’s a privilege to again sponsor the NFJG shootout. We’ve been part of this tournament for five years, and continuing our commitment is something we feel very good about.”
As part of a three-year agreement, PIVOT CPAs will serve as the event’s Official CPA Firm while also sponsoring the highly-anticipated PIVOT Poolside Lounge during tournament week.
With the Atlantic Beach Country Club clubhouse sitting across a small inlet from the 18th green, the PIVOT Poolside Lounge will provide VIPs and fans a festive and luxurious experience, as well as a spectacular view of the finishing hole, watching the next wave of PGA TOUR stars compete for a $1 million purse.
“If this were only about branding and having the ‘best seats’ on the course, this would be a win for us,” stated Peter Reynolds, Managing Partner for Pivot CPAs. “What really got our attention, however, was supporting the Atlantic Beach community at such a hands-on level. The entire community is excited about this tournament, not just the members of the golf club. We want to take a leadership role with this tournament, and it was an easy decision among our Partners and staff to be involved.”
The Web.com Tour Championship will feature the top 75 money winners at the end of the Web.com Tour Regular Season, as well as PGA TOUR players who finish the 2016-17 season ranked 126-200 in the FedExCup.
With 50 available PGA TOUR cards for the following season (since 2013), the Web.com Tour is The Path to the PGA TOUR. Twenty-five TOUR cards are reserved for the leading money winners at the end of the 22-event Regular Season. Another 25 are up for grabs at the four-event Web.com Tour Finals that follow the Regular Season in September.
The Finals paved the path for immediate PGA TOUR success over the last two seasons for Web.com Tour graduates, with Emiliano Grillo (Frys.com Open), Smylie Kaufman (Shriners Hospitals for Children Open) and Peter Malnati (Sanderson Farms Championship) winning three of the opening four events in the TOUR’s 2015-16 season, and Cody Gribble (Sanderson Farms Championship), Rod Pampling (Shriners Hospitals for Children Open) and Mackenzie Hughes (The RSM Classic) winning three of the opening seven events in the 2016-17 season.
