The Acushnet Company, parent company of the popular Titleist, FootJoy and Pinnacle golf brands, is renewing its partnership of Golf Retirement Plus through December 2013. As a founding partner, Acushnet helped launch Golf Retirement Plus with The PGA of America in 1997.

“The Acushnet Company's brands represent some of the most storied product lines in the game today,” said PGA President Allen Wronowski. “With household brand names in Titleist and FootJoy, golfers equate Acushnet Company merchandise as among the finest in the golf industry, which is why The PGA of America is proud to call Acushnet a founding partner of Golf Retirement Plus.”

“Acushnet is proud to remain a founding partner of Golf Retirement Plus,” said Peter Broome, Acushnet vice president, Business Development. “Our sponsorship of this important initiative is a natural extension of our partnership with The PGA of America and its dedicated professionals. We believed then, as we do now, that PGA Professionals play a critical role in the game, and as a result, their long-term financial stability is important to the growth and prosperity of the industry.”

Founded in 1997, Golf Retirement Plus is a retirement program for PGA Professionals and apprentices, GCSAA Superintendents and CMAA Club Managers, which allows them to make their own contributions or have their employers contribute to their Golf Retirement Plus account on their behalf. PGA Professionals may also earn personal incentives by participating in the Golf Retirement Plus Partner Programs.
