(SEATTLE) — Cutter & Buck has renewed for a second year its exclusive apparel sponsorship of PGA Magazine’s Merchandiser of the Year Conference. This prestigious gathering of PGA professionals will take place in Orlando, Fla., prior to January’s PGA Merchandise Show, and engages the expertise of golf’s best merchandisers in identifying best practices that can be shared with the 27,000 other member professionals of the PGA of America.

All Cutter & Buck products feature distinctive, comfortable designs, high-quality materials and rich detailing. The company sells its products through golf pro shops and resorts, specialty retail shops, corporate sales and online at cutterbuck.com.
The Seattle-based apparel manufacturer has enjoyed continued growth in the ANNIKA line, named and designed for legendary golfer Annika Sorenstam, since its introduction in 2004. The company also produces a separate women’s line under the Cutter & Buck label.
