    Rocket Tour Announces State, Regional Golf Association Partnership Program

    (BOULDER, Colo.)Rocket Tour– designer and manufacturer of premium golf headcovers and accessories – announces the launch of its state and regional golf association partnership program offering associations co-branded, custom knit headcover designs sold through a turnkey e-commerce solution operated by Rocket Tour, tournament gift opportunities and member discounts and offers.

     Current state associations participating in the program include Colorado, Georgia, Iowa, Oregon, Tennessee and Utah, alongside Sun Country Amateur Golf. Four additional collaborations will begin in July.

    “I’m excited to see the level of participation from these great associations offering their members the opportunity to showcase their state golf pride with these eye-catching designs,” says Helena Stanton, founder and lead designer at Rocket Tour. “Members and golfers add style to their bag, while showing their support of golf programs in their home state. It’s a win for everyone.” 

     Committed to offering premium, knit headcovers at an accessible price for golfers of all ages, the Rocket Tour State Association Collection headcovers and accessories range from $19 – $45 and are available at the Rocket Tour website RocketTour.com.

     “Helena and her team have been great to work with and we could not be more excited about our partnership with Rocket Tour,” says Matt Vanderpool, Executive Director of the Georgia State Golf Association. “Rocket Tour’s knit headcovers have been a home run for us and we look forward to seeing many more of them all across Georgia in the near future.”      

                   

     Making a name for itself in the collegiate ranks as the headcover choice of more than 200 NCAA programs, Rocket Tour has designed their signature rugby stripe knit headcovers to inspire golfers to “show their stripes” since 2004. Each Rocket Tour headcover is personally designed by Founder Helena Stanton and hand-finished in Boulder, Colorado.

    “The Tennessee Golf Association is thrilled to partner with Rocket Tour and provide our members an opportunity to buy custom headcovers online,” says Chad Anderson, Executive Director of the Tennessee Golf Association. “Rocket Tour makes a great product and our players will definitely be looking good out on the course.”

    Rocket Tour – The Masters - The Colors

    Rocket Tour – The Masters - The Colors

    It's here!

    Diehard golfers have braved the cold and now we’re ready to reap the benefits of spring weather ahead! Along with a resurgence of sunshine and warmth comes Masters week, which most of us associate as the “unofficial” start to the golf season for most of the United States. This year’s coverage of the history making Augusta National Women’s Amateur was great to watch and a treat to have extended coverage from Augusta.  I think it makes this week even more anticipated and exciting for all.

    Visually, The Masters is a feast of beautiful colors - the varied palette of pink azaleas and rich green vistas.  It’s also a reminder that tradition doesn’t need to feel mundane or staid but can be colorful. Spectator’s are wearing a range of poppy and classic items…floral sundresses, the iconic Masters shirts, caps acquired from years past in fun, bright hues…pinks, greens and yellows along with classic blues and khakis. Even kids and pups are cruising in Masters style!

    This time of year I pull out my hot pink Titleist carry bag and my coveted Ping Mascot bag (an AJGA team “West” Wyndham Cup bright royal blue camo bag…coolest bag ever!) and dress them up in happy bright shades. This season I’ll be staring out with Rocket Tour Shortys in brights for fairway and hybrid paired with a classic Masters Green / Yellow pom pom and racer blade putter cover. Here are a few of my favorites below! 

     

     

     

     

     

    Rocket Tour Players Championship 2019

    Rocket Tour Players Championship 2019

    Our favorite part of every New Year is not only the opportunity to refocus and set new goals, but it also means the ROCKET TOUR PLAYERS CHAMPIONSHIP is around the corner!

    The 2019 Peggy Kirk Bell Girls Tour (PKBGT) Rocket Tour Players Championship will be the seventh playing of the tournament, one of the longest running events in the PKBGT's 11-year history. From Feb. 16 –17, top junior golfers from across the southeast and beyond will head to University of Georgia Golf Course in Athens, GA to compete for the championship title. Past champions include Division 1 collegiate golfers, like University of Georgia’s Elisa Yang (2016), Vanderbilt’s Louise Yu (2017) and University of South Carolina’s Skylar Thompson (2018).

    The PKBGT’s mission is to ensure the future of the game by providing a "Girls Only Tour" that will actively increase participation and interest in girl's golf. The tour provides a venue for aspiring collegiate golfers in the southeast and affordable, top-level tournament competition and development.

    Rocket Tour has been the presenting sponsor of the Players Championship since 2016; designing custom Limited Edition PKBGT knit head covers for all participants for the past three years. Seeing this tournament steadily mature in participation, popularity and exposure since we began has been such a delight. It is so encouraging to see the growth of the game happen before our eyes among these young stars of the game. 

    “We are thrilled about this partnership with PKBGT, I really look forward to this event every year” says Helena Stanton, Rocket Tour founder and designer. “It is remarkable to see so many gifted girls compete at such a high level and I could not be more proud to be the host sponsor.”

    We are committed to developing the game just as much as we want people to feel pride in their city, school or team. Tournaments are so important to junior golf because competition is the main ingredient for future participation. We hope these girls go as far as the game will take them and look forward to seeing many of them join their peers at top university programs around the country.

    If you are in the Athens area in mid-February, feel free to swing by for some exciting golf! We cannot wait to see these girls #StripeIt

    Down, Set, Stripe it

    Down, Set, Stripe it

    It’s finally that time of year. Leaves are changing shade, and the air is becoming a bit cooler, but to the sports world, fall means one thing: football. Professional, collegiate, flag, youth, fantasy leagues, you name it - Americans are captivated by the pigskin each weekend. Games draw devoted sports fans in the thousands to stadiums, tailgates and watch parties for hours to cheer on their favorite teams. For the diehard, the unwavering support does not stop when the game is over, the fandom is a way of life... think t-shirts, custom jerseys, man caves, and in our case, golf headcovers.

    At Rocket Tour, the autumn months also mean one of the best seasons on the golf calendar. Depending on location of course, there simply isn’t anything better than striping it down a fairway lined with multi-colored foliage and immediately feeling relaxed when a nice, cool breeze hits. The conversation amongst each foursome changes from summer trips and the never-ending heat wave to who is playing on the football field that afternoon.

    When football and golf come together, Rocket Tour headcovers are the best way to show your pride. Founder Helena Stanton has built relationships with over 200 NCAA Division 1 schools to make Rocket Tour the market leader in collegiate golf headcovers. Whether it’s an alma mater or hometown team, Rocket Tour has your favorite squad – and fairway woods – covered.
