Jason Dufner tees off at 2018 PGA Championship with KT Tape®

KT Tape is aiding golfers and supporting kids in the golf world!

We will be partnering with professional golfer Jason Dufner for the 2018 PGA Championship. Throughout his play in the 100th PGA Championship, held at Bellerive Country Club in St. Louis, Mo., Dufner will wear different hats featuring the KT Tape logo and St. Louis landmarks. Dufner will autograph a limited quantity of the hats which will be available for sale at kttape.com, and a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Jason Dufner Foundation.

This year’s PGA Championship runs August 9-12, and autographed hats can be purchased beginning Thursday, Aug. 9, 2018. “We’re excited to join forces with Jason Dufner and to help the mission of the Jason Dufner Foundation,” said Greg Venner, chief executive officer of KT Tape. “KT Tape has long been providing drug-free pain relief and muscle support to golfers. This week, we will not only be supporting Jason on the course during the 2018 PGA Championship, but also raising funds to provide food and resources for children in need.

KT Tape is a lightweight, elastic sports and fitness tape designed as a drug-free solution for muscle, ligament and tendon pain relief and to provide support for many sports-related injuries. Applied along soft tissue, KT Tape interacts naturally with the body’s neuromuscular systems to allow individuals to remain active while recovering from injuries. It delivers pain relief and support before, during, and after activity without restricting motion. KT Tape is designed to withstand sweat, strain and can be worn in water or under body-hugging athletic apparel while providing long-lasting relief.

"I'm proud to partner with category leader KT Tape this week for the PGA Championship and raise funds for the foundation to help feed kids in Lee County," said Dufner. "KT Tape has been supporting my muscles on and off the course, keeping me ready for each round. Now, we are working together to support the children in the community I call home.

Winner of the 2013 PGA Championship, Dufner has five career PGA Tour victories, and he has recorded two top-10 finishes this season. On the way to his PGA Championship win, Dufner shot a second-round 63, tying the major championship scoring record. His round of 63 was the 26th in major championship history, and he was the sixth player to match the record and go on to win.

A limited quantity of each of the KT Tape partnership hats autographed by Dufner can be purchased at kttape.com. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each signed hat will benefit the Jason Dufner Foundation. Since 2011, the Jason Dufner Foundation has focused on ending childhood hunger in Lee County, Ala., through local, regional, and national partnerships. Currently, the foundation provides food for more than 1,400 children on weekends throughout the school year. The foundation also helps with summer feeding assistance in the county, as well as partnering with other organizations that share the same mission.
