FAIRBORN, OH – Mizuno Golf, represented by Tim Botschner in Southern Ohio, has expanded its support of the Southern Ohio PGA Section through a new three-year partnership. 

Mizuno has previously supported Southern Ohio PGA Professionals through the annual Pro-Assistant event. The new partnership includes the continued support of the SOPGA Pro-Assistant as well as the Pro-Scratch, PGA REACH Southern Ohio Pro-Am and the SOPGA Pro Am Series event at Hyde Park Golf & Country Club. Additionally, Mizuno will support the SOPGA Junior Golf Players Tour Four-Ball Championship at Wedgewood Golf & Country Club.

“I am very excited to announce this new long-term partnership with the SOPGA,” noted Botschner. “Mizuno has long valued the PGA Golf Professional, and we offer our partners an opportunity to be world-class fitting experts with our Shaft Optimizer 3D and Performance Fitting System. Our fitting software allows you to fit at an elite level with some of the best equipment in golf for players of all skill levels and genders. Three swings and you can fit your members and customers into drivers, fairways, hybrids, irons, wedges and even the right golf ball. Partnering with the SOPGA is the right time to show our appreciation for all the hard work the members and associates of this section put in daily to grow the game, and we look forward to continuing this collaboration for years to come!”

The partnership builds off the long term relationship between Mizuno and the Southern Ohio PGA while introducing new experiential activations for SOPGA Professionals and amateurs.

“We’re really excited to be partnering with Tim Botschner and the entire team at Mizuno,” noted Southern Ohio PGA Executive Director Patrick Salva. “Mizuno is dedicated to supporting our PGA Professionals while also delivering premium equipment that showcases their craftsmanship and innovation. We feel confident that through this partnership, we will be able to showcase that dedication while also introducing golf’s next generation to all the Mizuno brand has to offer.”
