UPS launches #bags4birdies global golf campaign
UPS are helping the next generation to have a chance to succeed on the green.

UPS will donate junior sets of golf clubs for every birdie or better that UPS golf ambassadors Lee Westwood or Louis Oosthuizen make during a competitive round in the four 2016 major championships to deserving kids in select markets around the world.
 
#bags4birdies is a programme designed to support golf’s future talent, giving them the tools they need to succeed on the course. PING will partner with UPS in this initiative, developing PING Moxie G junior clubs and other golf gear for the kids.
 
UPS will work closely with golf’s governing bodies across the globe to select recipients in the following eight International markets: North America, UK, Germany, Costa Rica, China, South Africa, Vietnam and Japan.
 
“Just as UPS is committed to excellence in growing businesses worldwide, we are now applying the same principle to supporting the next generation of champions with the #bags4birdies programme,” said Ron Rogowski, UPS vice president of brand and sponsorships. “We hope this will give the worthy recipients a head start on their own journey to excellence.”
 
“The support of UPS and PING via the #bags4birdies programme will enable more children to learn and play the game; this will be invaluable to the future of South African golf,’’ said Andrew Weir, chairman of S.A. Kids Golf. “This partnership is important as it will create a unique opportunity and access to the game, we are extremely grateful for this support.”
