GREENWICH, Conn. - United Rentals Inc. announced that the company has been named the Official Equipment Rental Partner of The PGA of America through 2014. According to the company, approximately 10,000 golf facilities nationwide that are staffed by PGA professionals can now benefit from a national account relationship with United Rentals for equipment services. With the new licensing agreement, United Rentals also serves as co-presenting sponsor of the PGA Winter Championships and as a supporting sponsor of Golf Retirement Plus.

Michael Kneeland, chief executive officer of United Rentals, said, “We are extremely pleased to expand our support of the PGA of America in this new role, which makes our services available at favorable prices to PGA professionals at premier green-grass facilities. Our branch footprint and depth of resources will allow us to respond quickly to maintenance, renovation, and construction needs, helping these facilities in turn serve their own customers.”

Allen Wronowski, president of the PGA of America, said, “We have been fortunate to have United Rentals serving as an invaluable vendor at our major championships since the mid-1990s, and we now welcome them as a new partner and supporter of both our PGA Winter Championships and Golf Retirement Plus. United Rentals shares our commitment to providing outstanding service and value to PGA Professionals.”
