CLEVELAND, Ohio (May 31, 2018) – Tournament officials introduced NewBrick® by Dryvit® as presenting sponsor of the Web.com Tour Finals event played at Canterbury Golf Club in Cleveland. The tournament, which will be contested the week of August 27-September 2, 2018, will be renamed the DAP Championship presented by NewBrick, with a new logo.
“We are thrilled to expand our corporate partnerships and welcome another first-class company and industry leader to our family,” said Tournament Director Kevin Krisle. “We look forward to working with DAP, NewBrick, the community and all of our partners to continue growing this international event as the golfers continue on their path to the PGA TOUR.”
As one of four PGA TOUR-sanctioned events played annually in the state of Ohio (the Memorial Tournament, World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational, Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship), the DAP Championship presented by NewBrick has been a welcome addition to the Web.com Tour Finals schedule. Since the tournament’s inception in 2016, a total of 17 PGA TOUR tournaments have been won by players that have competed in the DAP Championship presented by NewBrick, including 2016 champion Bryson DeChambeau, who earned his first TOUR title at the John Deere Classic last July.
“Partnering with the Web.com Tour and the DAP Championship is a terrific opportunity for NewBrick by Dryvit,” said Mike Murphy, President and CEO of Dryvit Systems, Inc. “It is exciting for us to be participating in a world-class global event that will allow us an opportunity to showcase our brand, while supporting The LeBron James Family Foundation.”
In just two years since the tournament began, the DAP Championship presented by NewBrick has raised more than $447,000 to support The LeBron James Family Foundation (LJFF). With its mission to help students achieve their dreams through education, LJFF’s support for these students begins early in their elementary journey and continues through high school and into college, where the Foundation has guaranteed all eligible students four-year college scholarships. Soon, all of LJFF’s interventions, incentives, and “We Are Family” philosophy will culminate in the fall 2018 opening of the I PROMISE School, a brand-new Akron public school that will provide wrap around support for LeBron’s I PROMISE students and their families.
“Through our partnership with DAP and RPM, a Cleveland-based company, along with the incredible efforts of The LeBron James Family Foundation, the DAP Championship has been able to create a tremendous impact in the Cleveland area in two short years,” said Web.com Tour President Dan Glod. “We are excited to welcome another RPM company, NewBrick, as presenting sponsor for this event as we look to continue that success in 2018.”
The 2018 DAP Championship will be played over Labor Day weekend, with approximately 130 players competing for a guaranteed $1 million purse. The field will be comprised of the 75 leading Web.com Tour money winners at the conclusion of the Regular Season and those players who finish Nos. 126-200 in the FedExCup, minus players who have secured status for the 2018-19 season.
