Richmond Hill, ON (April 22, 2022) – The Canadian Junior Golf Association (CJGA) is pleased to announce a NEW partnership with Red Rooster Golf Inc. for the 2022 season. This partnership will see Red Rooster become the presenting sponsor of our five-part OVGA CJGA series in the Ottawa region, become the official golf glove of the Linkster Tour, provide their golf glove products to all golfers at our annual charity golf event, and help support and grow junior golf across Canada. Plus, as part of their philanthropic twist – they match every purchase with a free golf glove to the CJGA as a way to “play-it-forward” back to the Canadian golf industry.
“We are pleased to welcome our newest CJGA partnership with Red Rooster Golf Inc.” Said CJGA Founder and CEO Earl Fritz. “This is a special day for our association, as one of our CJGA alumni – Kerry Moher the Founder of Red Rooster Golf Inc., is supporting the CJGA which helped him forge his love for the game of golf.”
Red Rooster Golf is a NEW Canadian golf company that is introducing new products to the Canadian marketplace with a focus on quality and philanthropy. Red Rooster Golf also has Korn Ferry Tour player, and Canadian professional golfer Brad Fritsch as their supporting founder. Their motto is “high quality gloves at affordable prices” and offer the golf marketplace AAA cabretta leather glove in various colours, as well as accessories including a unique glove compartment. All golf gloves are designed in Canada and mailed directly to your home.
As part of their philanthropy and helping grow junior golf, after each purchase of a Red Rooster Golf glove, their company will donate a junior golf glove to ‘Play It Forward’ Partners like the CJGA. Red Rooster launched a Kickstarter campaign in May 2021 and was fully funded in less than 24 hours, and eventually raised close to $100,000.
“Not only are the gloves high quality, like anything I’ve worn on Tour, but the subscription model is easy to understand and the get-give opportunity is an awesome way to support junior golf,” said Brad Fritsch, a former PGA Tour member and supporting founder of Red Rooster.
