NEW REPELLENT BRAND ENTERS GOLF INDUSTRY WITH A COMMITMENT TO KEEPING GOLFERS PROTECTED ON THE COURSE
May 1, 2019, NORWALK, CT: Ranger Ready RepellentsÒ, a new, body-worn EPA-registered repellent brand has made a commitment to the golf community through multiple sponsorship agreements, industry partnerships, and advertising investments to help make golfers more aware of how to protect themselves from ticks, mosquitos, and other biting insects that cause disease.

Ranger Ready's multi-year partnership as Official Supplier to the Association of Professional Tour Caddies (APTC) is a first in the industry and includes the repellent being in the locker room for players and caddies on every stop on the 2019-2020 tournament schedule, as well as the Player Areas, Caddie Locker Room, and in all caddies' bags. In addition, the brand has become a sponsor of multiple events this season with regional PGA Sections including New England, Connecticut, New Jersey, Metropolitan ("MET"), North Florida, and South Florida.
APTC caddie, Taylor Ford, wears Ranger Ready to work daily as he carries a bag for Stewart Cink for more than 30 weeks a year. "We have to wear sunscreen and repellent to work," said Ford, now in his fourth year as a professional caddie. "I put Ranger Ready on in the locker room and I'm able to forget about mosquitos, flies, and ticks for the entire day and focus on what really matters out on the course: the game of golf."
"Lyme disease is a real threat for golfers. We want to encourage golfers to follow the '5 Tips on How to Play Every Round Protected,'"
Ranger Ready has also partnered with Matt Adams, founder and host of "Fairways of Life" and award-winning author. Widely recognized as an expert on golf and how golfers from beginners to the pros get more out of the game, Adams is working together with Ranger Ready Repellent to help build awareness among golfers around the threat of tick-borne diseases like Lyme disease. "It's not often that you get to work with products you actually get emotionally engaged in," said Adams. "Our goal is to help golfers around the country avoid being an unfortunate statistic."
