Local Partner Updates:

The Announcement:
The RDUgolf Tour is excited to announce a partnership with ChisDaddy Golf!

Based near Keith Hills, Jacob Chisler specializes in club building, repair, restoration, and customization
ChisDaddy Golf is offering RDUgolf Tour members 40% off of all services with promo code “RDUGolfTour”

Update 1: Brookfields Indoor Golf & Lounge

After a successful opening in June and providing 4-hour simulator rentals to Major Event winners, they are providing us a new offer:
$20 off 2-hour simulator bookings ($80 value) for all RDUgolf Tour members!

Update 2: FitGolf Performance Center of the Triangle

FitGolf Performance Center of the Triangle has released a new newsletter, focusing on lower back pains and stretches for golfers!

On a personal note, I have been working with Ryan from FitGolf over the past few months, and have alleviated some significant issues in my right hip, not allowing me to fully rotate, leading to an over-the-top swing and a slice. I CANNOT recommend FitGolf enough!

Recent Event Updates:

Since the last newsletter we have had 2 majors and 1 regular season event
Each event has created a LOT of movement in the season-long Points Leaderboard, but we’re not done yet!
What’s most enjoyable to see is a LOT of golfers are finding their swing and setting new personal records!

Congrats to our recent winners:
Bentwinds Major: Tyler Fowler
UNC Finley: Chris Norton
Tobacco Road Major: John Gagliano (net AND gross)
