opportunity for the North Florida Section and its PGA Professionals,” he adds. “The North Florida PGA

our innovative apparel,” says Doug Risher, National Sales Manager for CHASE54. “As a Florida resident,
it’s remarkable how the region has responded to CHASE54. A partnership of this caliber will continue
elevating our brand throughout the industry and beyond. It’s a key indicator of where the company is headed and

CHASE54 – It is the namesake for “the perfect score” in golf. 18 holes +18 birdies = score of 54. Has it ever
been achieved? Not necessarily, but the company proves that by striving for perfection, we all get a little closer.
No strangers to hard work and a zest for life, the company has been manufacturing apparel for more than
30 years, having produced more than 400 million garments. CHASE54 is a vertical apparel manufacturer
controlling all the production steps to avoid the middleman. Because of this, the dynamic brand
brings the latest apparel technology to market faster than some of the largest labels in the world.
Another key attribute setting CHASE54 apart is the fabric innovation and quality that helps players look good,
feel good and play great. When people experience the performance and comfort of CHASE54 on and off the
course, it’s game on… and even the pros think so. LPGA Tour Player Brooke Pancake says “CHASE54 is the
most incredible golf apparel line that I’ve come across.” “To me, the perfect apparel makes you comfortable at
home, on the road and on the golf course and CHASE54 brings that to the table with its fabrics and the materials
they use,” adds Jason Kokrak, PGA Tour Player. The company takes pride in its TEAM54 roster, with more
than 10 tour pros and BUZZ54 ambassadors.
As for innovation, the company is constantly exploring new technologies and discovering new fabrics with the
goal of creating the perfect golf shirt. Technologies include Sorona® by DuPont, a renewable sourced
fiber made from corn, bringing color brilliance, stain and odor resistance, and stretch recovery. Dry Fuze is
Chase54’s patented moisture-wicking fabric keeping players cool and dry, enjoying freedom of movement on
every shot, all day long. High Gauge is an ultra-fine polyester yarn that’s incredibly lightweight with
unmatched freedom of movement. A naturally occurring fiber, Modal garments are the softest fabric by CHASE54…
shrink resistant and blended with polyester for enhanced functionality. Even outerwear pieces by CHASE54
present a unique three-layer fabric that’s waterproof, windproof and breathable, giving a natural
stretch to help players’ swing, even in tough climate conditions.
“At CHASE54, we are on course for perfection because we’re working hard to improve our game,
making it happen every day,” says Lulu Faddis, Creative Director. “How can we make yours just a
little more perfect?”
