The Antigua Group Inc, one of the nation's leading designers and marketers of apparel under the classic Antigua brand, has extended its partnership with The PGA of America to include licensing for the 2012 Ryder Cup and 2011-12 PGA Championships. The company also renewed its presenting sponsorship with Golf Retirement Plus™ for another three years.

Antigua will continue to serve as a non-exclusive licensee to sell men's and women's apparel onsite at the: 2011 PGA Championship at the Atlanta Athletic Club in Duluth, Ga.; 2012 PGA Championship at Kiawah Island (S.C.) Golf Resort; and the 2012 Ryder Cup at Medinah (Ill.) Country Club. In addition, Antigua has retained rights to sell PGA of America event logoed apparel at golf facilities in the United States, as well as in The PGA's Corporate Merchandise Program.

The extension marks the 17th consecutive year that Antigua has sold merchandise at the PGA Championship. The company has also sold its apparel at every U.S.-based Ryder Cup since 1991.

"The Antiqua brand symbolizes excellence in apparel, which is a positive reflection of the high standing and regard The PGA of America and our 27,000 men and women professionals hold as the recognized experts in the game and business of golf," said PGA President Allen Wronowski.

"We are thrilled by The Antigua Group's long-standing commitment to provide first-class logoed apparel at both the PGA Championship and Ryder Cup, and are also greatly appreciative of Antigua's continued support of the financial goals and dreams of PGA members through Golf Retirement Plus."

Antigua, with headquarters in Peoria, Ariz., has produced high quality apparel since 1979, and holds licensing agreements with the likes of The PGA of America, PGA Tour, LPGA, Major League Baseball, National Basketball Association (NBA), National Hockey League (NHL) and the NCAA.

With the company's roots in the golf market, Antigua features sports apparel for essentials, wovens, outerwear, accessories, performance and more. Antigua has served as a sponsor of the Golf Retirement Plus since 1998.

"All of us at Antigua are very proud of our long-lasting relationship with The PGA of America, and we look forward to continued, mutual success," said Ron McPherson, president and CEO of the Antigua Group.
