Gallery Named Presenting Sponsor of AJGA Event
Video Retailer Supports the Ashworth Preseason Junior
at Highland Oaks
Gallery, the third-largest video specialty retailer in the
United States, has signed a two-year deal as the presenting
sponsor for an American Junior Golf Association tournament
to be played in Dothan, Ala. The Ashworth Preseason Junior
at Highland Oaks presented by Movie Gallery, slated for
March 7-9, marks the start of the AJGAs 2003 season.
The AJGAs reputation as having the top junior
golf events in the country, and their interest in bringing
a tournament to Dothan go hand-in-hand with our long-standing
support of youth-related programs, said Steve Roy,
Movie Gallerys Executive Vice President and Chief
The 36-hole, stroke-play tournament will be played at Highland
Oaks Golf Course in Dothan. The city is also home to Movie
Gallerys national headquarters.
Movie Gallery owns and operates 1,790 video specialty stores
located in 43 states and six Canadian provinces. They are
the leading home video specialty retailer primarily focused
on rural and secondary markets.
The AJGA Ashworth Preseason/Postseason Junior Series, a
boys-only series, has expanded to 10 tournaments in 2003
from the eight featured last year. The series is designed
to provide playing opportunities to juniors who have not
yet played in an AJGA tournament. Players who finish in
the top 15, including ties, receive one, two or three automatic
entries into future AJGA tournaments, depending on their
place. The AJGA will conduct 70 national tournaments during
the 2003 season.
