In recognition of his personification of patriotism through the game of golf, David Windsor, PGA Director of Golf at the Adaptive Golf Academy in Sarasota, Florida, was honored with the 2015 Patriot Award. He has instructed adaptive golf classes every week for the past 15 years, designed for physically or cognitively challenged juniors, adults and disabled Veterans. The idea was sparked after being invited to work alongside a local therapist to introduce golf as a means of rehabilitation. Gaining extensive knowledge and program experience in these processes, Windsor developed the Adaptive Golf Academy in 2006, as the education platform to train PGA Professionals (and physical/occupational and recreational therapists) on the underlying attributes of the game.

NFPGA PARTNER CHASE54 TO INTRODUCE “SPECTRUM” SPRING 2016 COLLECTION
CHASE54, NFPGA apparel partner, has announced the launch of its new collection for Spring 2016 – SPECTRUM. The brand will present this dynamic collection at the PGA Demo & Fashion Experience August 17-19, 2015. The company’s inspiration from the runway and the fairway radiates layers of color and new fabrics never done in the golf market. The diversity of offerings presents a breadth that empowers people from the range to the office and beyond with seamless transition and modern style. Because CHASE54 has been creating fabrics in the lab at the very core phase, the company has the capacity to offer a wider range of color, impressive details, smooth style and exceptional quality.
“The SPECTRUM concept came to me early in the design process for an abundance of reasons,” says Lulu Faddis, Chief Designer and Creative Director. “When I noticed the color vibrancy in runway trends and tech fabrics continuing in fairway trends, I knew it was natural for us to push the limits in these areas with a layered approach,” she adds. “We hope to WOW buyers and consumers with the new expansive offering of savvy color crossovers and fabric diversity. Beyond creative fashion groupings, fresh lifestyle pieces and inventive details, there is a touch of class and excitement to complement a smart buy,” Faddis explains. “The collection showcases depth in its prints, textures and details. We therefore believe the reach of this collection will resonate with a wider group of members and consumers. With all the new layers to peel in the spectrum, at the core remains the brilliance of CHASE54’s strength of unprecedented excellence and experience,” Faddis adds. “We are proving that our foundation of 30 years of manufacturing experience can be complemented with exciting new layers, bringing something unique for everyone,” Faddis concludes.
SPECTRUM HIGHLIGHTS FOR SPRING 2016:
Ø NEW jacquard textures
Ø Diverse colors from brights to lights to calming – prints to solids to textures
Ø Styles that bring elements of surprise for the course and for life- wraps, edgy polos, premium details & fabrics
Ø NEW Mens Trousers in three inseams: 30,” 32,” and 34”
Ø Extended sizing for Men’s Bottoms: 42” and 44” waist
Ø NEW CORE54 (Basics) Program for men & women in eight colors
CHASE54’s SPECTRUM represents the ultimate expansion in technical fabrics, color, prints and possibilities for Spring 2016. Join us at the PGA Fashion and Demo Experience and FEEL IT TO BELIEVE IT.
