Yesterday it was announced that TaylorMade adidas Golf (TMAG) had signed a 3 year deal with the RCGA here in Canada to supply volunteers at the Mens and Ladies Canadian Opens. Considering I'm volunteering this year at the 2008 Canadian Open at Glen Abbey I was excited as I know TM/Adidas Golf makes some nice stuff. Here's what the press release looks like:

CARLSBAD, Calif. (March 5, 2008)TaylorMade adidas Golf (TMAG) and the Royal Canadian Golf Association (RCGA) are pleased to announce a new three-year agreement in which TMAG will become the official golf equipment and apparel partner of the RCGA. The agreement builds on an existing partnership between TMAG and RCGA that has the equipment and apparel company as both an Equipment Sponsor and the Official Apparel Sponsor of the RCGA National Amateur Team Program.
