FORT WORTH, Texas (April 26, 2022) – The Ben Hogan Award committee today announced a partnership agreement with Reveal Suits, an upscale clothing company based in North Texas that specializes in high-end custom suits and blazers with officially-licensed lining.
As part of the agreement, Reveal Suits will provide each of the three Ben Hogan Award Finalists with a custom tuxedo. This year’s black-tie dinner, during which the winner of the nation’s most prestigious college and amateur golf award will be named, is Monday, May 23, at Colonial Country Club.
“We are very excited to partner with a company that represents class and elegance like Reveal Suits,” Ben Hogan Award Chairman Harold Muckleroy said. “We know that the Finalists will truly enjoy wearing and owning their one-of-a-kind tuxedo that will forever show their inclusion in such an exclusive club.”
The new partnership with Reveal Suits was brokered by First Team, a division of First Team Ventures. First Team represents the Ben Hogan Award in its quest to develop new content and corporate partnerships.
“Reveal Suits is absolutely thrilled to partner with the Ben Hogan Award, and to be associated with his great name is a true honor,” said Carlton Dixon, Owner/CEO of Reveal Suits. “We look forward to suiting up the next generation of legendary golfers for this celebration of greatness.”
The Ben Hogan Award presented by PNC Bank annually awards the top men’s NCAA Division I, II or III, NAIA or NJCAA college golfer based on all collegiate, amateur and professional events over the previous 12 months. Four of the top five players in the Official World Golf Ranking have strong ties to the award, as No. 2 Jon Rahm (2015, 2016), No. 4 Patrick Cantlay (2012) and No. 5 Viktor Hovland (2019) are past recipients of the honor, while No. 2 Collin Morikawa (2018, 2019) was a two-time finalist.
The Ben Hogan Award presented by PNC Bank began honoring the outstanding amateur collegiate golfer at Colonial Country Club in 2002. Prior to its move to Fort Worth, the original Ben Hogan Trophy, which utilized a different set of criteria to name its winners, was issued at Bel-Air Country Club in Los Angeles beginning in 1990.
Over the years, Hogan Award winners at Colonial have combined to accumulate 68 worldwide victories, including 50 PGA TOUR wins, and have amassed more than $330 million in prize money across the globe with more than $300 million on the PGA TOUR. Additionally, the group has appeared in 12 Ryder Cups, a dozen Presidents Cups and won two FedExCup championships.
In addition to Rahm, Cantlay and Hovland, past recipients include: Ricky Barnes (2003), Matt Every (2006), Rickie Fowler (2008), Doug Ghim (2018), Bill Haas (2004), Chris Kirk (2007), Hunter Mahan (2003), Maverick McNealy (2017), Ryan Moore (2005), John Pak (2021), Patrick Rodgers (2014), Kyle Stanley (2009), Nick Taylor (2010), Sahith Theegala (2020), D.J.
