TEMPE, Ariz., March 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- DUFL, the premium travel service that's changing the way the world travels, today announced a partnership with 15 year PGA TOUR professional, Pat Perez. This strategic partnership will align the innovative start up company that eliminates the need for frequent travelers to pack, do laundry or carry a bag with them while traveling with one of the most consistent and dynamic golfers on the PGA TOUR.
Pat Perez has been one of the PGA TOUR's most unique personalities since joining in 2002. Raised in San Diego, California, Pat attended Arizona State University and was a member of the Sun Devil golf team where he led the team to a National Championship in 1996. Perez claimed his first PGA Tour win in 2009 at the Bob Hope Classic. He recently won the 2016 OHL Classic at Mayakoba and is currently 5th in the PGA Tour FedEx Cup standings.
A believer in innovation, efficiency and technology, coupled with the extensive travel associated with playing in several hundred PGA events throughout his expansive career, Perez' partnership with DUFL is a natural fit. DUFL allows customers to store clothing, sports and business gear in DUFL's secure facilities and use an app to virtually pack for a trip. DUFL then delivers users' suitcases, sports and business equipment to their hotel destination. Once the trip is completed, users leave their suitcase and other equipment at the front desk, and DUFL picks it up and ships it to the DUFL warehouse, where the contents are inventoried and cleaned so that everything is ready for the next trip.
"As someone who travels 200+ days per year, I can appreciate the hassles that go along with travel, only on a much larger scale," Perez shared. "DUFL allows me to focus on my game. I can pack in 60 seconds in the DUFL app, see everything in my DUFL closet and save myself hours of time on every trip. I'm excited to partner with a company that is truly changing travel for people who spend their time on the road."
"We're thrilled to align ourselves with Pat. We can't think of a better partner to disrupt the golf and golf related travel space," says Bill Rinehart, DUFL Chairman, Founder and CEO. "Now Pat will be leading the way in the industry by utilizing an innovative, reliable solution that is designed to provide convenience, eliminate stress and give back hours of personal time previously spent preparing for trips, so that he and others will truly appreciate why DUFL has a 99% retention rate among its customers."
Perez will be working closely with DUFL on product development related to DUFL Golf, specifically to make DUFL the best service available not only for PGA TOUR players, but for weekend golfers alike. DUFL recently announced its partnership with Golf Digest Online in Japan and plans to expand the DUFL Golf service globally.
