HITLON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. – The International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) is pleased to continue its partnership with KENTWOOL , one of the nation’s longest-running, family-owned textile companies. In continuation with their partnership with the IJGT, KENTWOOL has been named the official title sponsor of the IJGT Event at Bulle Rock Golf Club, April 13-14.
Founded in 1843, KENTWOOL is the only company in the western hemisphere — and one of 50 in the world — to receive the Usterized Quality Certification indicating the highest level of quality assurance in yarn production. Based in Greenville, S.C., all KENTWOOL products are made in the USA.
An avid golfer, KENTWOOL CEO, Mark Kent had the idea to produce the “World’s Best Golf Sock” after standing in the 18th fairway of the BMW Nationwide Tour Pro-Am tending to blistered, bleeding feet instead of concentrating on the eagle opportunity guaranteeing him a spot in the final round. Born from that moment was golf’s leading, premium merino wool golf sock. KENTWOOL Socks enable golfers of all abilities to play their best while benefiting from abrasion, fatigue resistance, KENTWOOL Blister-Free Guarantee. KENTWOOL utilizes its nearly two-century-old heritage of superiority in textiles to create socks which draw upon wool’s natural and cool performance fibers for moisture management, sheer comfort and other performance-enhancing benefits.
The #RocktheSocks Open at Bulle Rock will feature elite junior golfers from around the world competing for national recognition and IJGT Merit points. All event participants will receive a pair of KENTWOOL Socks in addition to the tournament gifts provided by our other sponsors.
This event is filling up quickly! Be sure to sign up for the #RocktheSocks Open at Bulle Rock today to reserve your spot in the field.
