Acushnet Korea Debuts Tour Van

Posted: May 9, 2007

The Titleist Tour Van debuted in Korea at the Maekyung Open, May 1, 2007. The Korean Tour Van is equipped with the same fitting options and machines as the Titleist Tour Van that supports the U.S. PGA Tour. At its launch, Titleist provided services and products to over 120 players who participated in the Maekyung Open, including 72 Korean players and 50 Asian Tour players. The Tour Van was well received by the participants and widely covered by the Korean media who had an opportunity to view it. While the Titleist Tour Van contributes to Titleist brand-building, its main purpose is player support by providing a wide array of services to improve player performance.


Wally Uihlein, Chairman and CEO of Acushnet Company, helped celebrate the launch of the Titleist Tour Van in Korea. (From L to R are Titleist Tour Representatives YG Kim, George Shay and Philip Choi; Titleist Tour Technician David Southworth; Korean PGA Tour players DoHoon Kim, DoHoon Kim, KyungTae Kim and SoonSang Hong; Wally Uihlein; Kevin Haglof, Vice President, Acushnet Asia Pacific; Korean PGA Tour players J.K. Mo, JinHo Choi and SungHoon Kang.

Looks great. I actually moved to Korea from Hawaii a year and a half ago. I'd always go to the Sony Open in Honolulu but never got to see any of the Tour vans. I suppose it's not worthwhile to ship them by boat, huh? I haven't been to an event in Korea yet but I think being able to see the Tour van will have pushed me to do so.
