SmartShield Sunscreen Partners with PGA Player Rory Sabbatini

SmartShield is delighted to announce our partnership with PGA Player, Rory Sabbatini. We are sponsoring Rory as his official sunscreen. Rory was spotted at the Sony Opening in Hawaii last week sporting the SmartShield logo on the front of his shirt and covering his face and arms with SmartShield sunscreen before the round.

SmartShield’s President/Owner Les Leonard, comments “It is our mission to let people know that skin cancer is almost 100% preventable with the use of sunscreen, we can’t think of a better place to do that than on the golf course. Golfers are at great risk for skin damage, no one knows this better than Rory Sabbatini”.

Rory Sabbatini was diagnosed with skin cancer late last year. “Sun protection just wasn’t something that I thought much about until it touched my life” explains Rory. Following his surgery Rory committed himself to protecting his skin from the sun’s damaging rays. Sabbatini continues “I diligently apply sunscreen before hitting the golf course. The SmartShield partnership just makes sense; the product gives me great coverage with no greasy residue. I can apply and play right away and know that I am protected from damaging rays”.

SmartShield is an AMF Partner and will be donating a percentage of their annual product sales to a SmartShield PGA Appreciation Fund. The fund is set up to benefit merchandising Pros who continue to promote safe-sun habits by offering SmartShield. SmartShield will be unveiling the program as well as Pro Shop incentives at the PGA show in Orlando next week.
