BRIDGESTONE GOLF TO SPONSOR AJGA TOURNAMENT IN DURHAM, N.C.
Bridgestone Golf Junior Classic to be held at Treyburn Country Club


Bridgestone Golf, a suburban-Atlanta golf manufacturer, was named the title sponsor of a new national junior golf tour-nament in Durham, N.C., the American Junior Golf Association announced Friday. The Bridgestone Golf Junior Classic will be held at Treyburn Country Club in Durham, N.C., April 21-23.

The 84-player, 36-hole event will feature the top junior boys and girls, ages 12-18. The Bridgestone Golf Junior Classic will include a Junior-Am tournament on Friday, April 21 at Treyburn Country Club. This will be a donor’s chance to tee it up with golf’s next generation while also contributing to a worthy cause. Proceeds from this event will benefit The First Tee of Wake County and the AJGA Foundation. Over the past decade, AJGA Junior-Ams have raised more than $1.5 million for junior programs in communities across the United States, including $630,000 in 2005 alone.

The first round of the event will be held Saturday, April 22, while the final round will be staged on Sunday, April 23. Tee times will run from 8-9:57 a.m. off the first and 10th tees on both days.

“We are excited about our relationship with the American Junior Golf Association and look forward to a long-lasting partnership,” said Darrell Moy, Bridgestone Golf’s manager of tour operations. “We feel that Treyburn Country Club is as good a facility on the AJGA schedule and know that it will be a great championship.”

Treyburn Country Club joins the AJGA schedule in 2006 as a first-time host of an AJGA event. The Tom Fazio-designed course was opened in 1988 and quickly gained accolades as Golf Digest named it “Best New Course.”

The praises of the course continue coming as it is consistently ranked in the top 10 golf courses in the state and widely considered the No. 1 course in the Raleigh-Durham area.

“The AJGA is very pleased with Bridgestone Golf’s support of our new event in Durham,” said Jason Etzen, AJGA executive vice president for corporate partnerships. “This event will be conducted at a first-class facility and it will be very beneficial to our members in North Carolina. This tournament will allow them to showcase their talents and hopefully land a college golf scholarship.”
