CHICAGO and STAMFORD, Conn., July 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Club Champion, the nation's #1 custom golf club fitter, and Synchrony (NYSE: SYF), a premier consumer financial services company, today announced a new, multi-year program agreement enabling Club Champion's customers to continue to access special financing offers. The new agreement comes just ten months after the two companies announced their extension of a special financing program for Club Champion customers who use the Synchrony Sport Card. Consumers have access to these special financing offers when they visit one of Club Champion's more than 70 locations or by applying online.
Early in the partnership with Synchrony's help, Club Champion created a custom 18-month special financing program with no minimum purchase requirements, enabling Club Champion to reach a wider array of golf customers. The companies' ongoing collaboration has led to more extensive customization of financing solutions that best meet Club Champion's customers' needs.
"As demand for golf grows in a post-pandemic world, we will see new participants on courses in the coming months, and we want to support them in any way we can. Part of that is unlocking more affordability options and making the purchasing experience that much more seamless," said Brian Burke, CFO, Club Champion. "Synchrony has been a great partner who continues to help us reach a broader array of customers."
"We are excited to partner with growing brands like Club Champion by making sporting experiences more accessible and affordable for every consumer," said Keith Mait, SVP and general manager, Payment Solutions, Synchrony.
