The Professional Golfers Association of Nigeria (PGAN) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with BJ International Promotions as marketing partner for Tour events.

PGA Director, Samson Lawal, who spoke at the event, said the development was part of the association’s effort at reaching more stakeholders for an improved tour.

He said: “It is no doubt that the Tour we have holds some pedigree on the continent. And this is evident in the number of countries that our member is drawn from. Only the Sunshine tour in South Africa can rival us in this capacity.

“But that is not to say we have all things perfect yet. Partners like the BJ International are people we are working with to drive our brand and deepen our deliverables for our members and all stakeholders.”

Lawal, who took over the helms of affairs of the professional body earlier in March 2016, said he to leave the PGA of Nigeria better than he met it.

Chairman of BJ International, Bunmi Jenyo, said the new partnership with the PGA excites his team and they are already working to make the development a worthy one for both parties.

Jenyo, a businessman, said his team came to the event with some experience that will propel development faster for the games development.

“We have a pedigree in promoting Nigerian talents across the world in the past, although this maybe our first incursion into sports, we are hoping all our machinery will work for the good and development of the PGA,” he said.

He also hinted that his organisation was already working to seal her first championship event for the association in Osun State.

“The event we are working on is our maiden outing and it will be staged at the MicCom Golf and Country Club, Ada Osun State,” he said.

Tournament Director of the PGA of Nigeria, Uche Eze, confirmed the event but added that a tentative date of November 29th to December 2nd is being considered for the event while a purse of nothing less than N10 million is being proposed.

Peter Eben-Spiff also received an award for his third consecutive single matchplay win at the club.

“Although the economy took a toll on corporate patronage of the anniversary event, we had good turnout of golfers at the event. It was a memorable outing for all the parties involved,” Olagbenro added.
