-Official Rangefinder to become presenting sponsor of B.C. and Ontario Fall Series in 2015-

Richmond Hill, Ont. (March 23, 2015) The Canadian Junior Golf Association (CJGA) is pleased to announce the partnership with Bushnell Golf has been renewed for the 2015 season. The partnership will see the aforementioned company’s product become the official rangefinder of the association as well as presenting sponsor for the British Columbia and Ontario Fall Series events.

Bushnell will have a presence at all events across the country along with the continuation of “The Bushnell Award of Excellence”. This award will recognize juniors with the lowest par three scoring over the course of the season in each division.

“We are delighted to continue and expand our relationship with Bushnell” said Brad Parkins, Chief Operations Officer of the CJGA. “The Bushnell brand is a leader in the rangefinder category and aligning our brands and having the opportunity to get the newest conforming product in the junior’s hands is mutually beneficial.”

Bushnell will provide editorial in the CJGA Jr. Golfer E-Newsletter to educate the membership on the benefits and technology of the Bushnell rangefinder line.

Rickie Fowler, brand ambassador for Bushnell product, has previous ties with the CJGA as he participated as a junior in the CJGA’s North America Cup in 2003. The event was hosted at Weston Golf & Country Club in Toronto and saw his American squad defeat CJGA Team Canada by a score of 17-11.
