News Release: Senators announce sponsorship of PGA Tour member Brad Fritsch

OTTAWA - The Ottawa Senators announced today a partnership with local golfer Brad Fritsch, who qualified for the 2013 PGA tour this past weekend. The Senators entered into this promotional partnership with Fritsch this past summer, with the aim of assisting him to reach his goal of earning a PGA tour card.

Fritsch accomplished his goal and earned his PGA tour card this weekend by finishing tied for ninth place in the year’s final tournament, the Web.com Tour Championship at TPC Craig Ranch in Texas, which left him in 18th place on the Web.com Tour money list.The top 25 in earnings on the money list of the Web.com tour automatically earned PGA tour cards for the 2013 golf season, which begins in January.

“We want to congratulate Brad on achieving his goal and earning his PGA tour card,” said Jeff Kyle, Senators vice-president of marketing. “We entered into this partnership with Brad because we believe that many of his best qualities, including his dedication and perseverance, reflect much of what the Ottawa Senators organization is all about. In sports, one of the most important ingredients to success is belief in achieving the ultimate goal and we were glad to be able to demonstrate to Brad that we are here to support him during the most important time of his career.”

Fritsch’s partnership with the Senators provides him with financial support and will see him sporting the Senators logo on both his shirt and his golf bag on the 2013 PGA Tour. Fritsch will also be participating in a number of community events with the Senators.

“As an avid Senators fan, we are proud to have Brad represent our organization and work with us to support local charities in innovative ways”, added Kyle. “We are excited about how great this partnership will be for both Brad and the Senators.”

“I am overjoyed to partner with and represent the NHL team that I've grown up with the last 20 years,” said Fritsch. “It is an honour and a pleasure to be associated with the Senators and my hope is that this is a partnership that will last for many, many years.”

“Brad and I are very excited for this opportunity we have with the Ottawa Senators,” noted Stephen Fritsch, Brad’s agent. “As both of us are huge fans, we felt that this would be a perfect fit and we look forward to working with the hockey team we both grew up cheering for.”

The 2012 golf season was the fourth year on the Web.com tour (formerly the Nationwide Tour) for the 34-year old Fritsch, who resides in Manotick, Ont. He began his professional golf career in 2000 and has also played on the Canadian Tour. In 2011, Fritsch finished 12th on the money list of the Canadian Professional Golf Tour.
