Golf Academy of America has signed on as a sponsor of the JK Crew Amateur Tour, which currently operates five tournament circuits in Australia and the U.S. Domestic tours are scheduled this fall in California, Florida and Georgia.

Tournament organizers are in negotiations with future tour sites in Korea, South Africa, Mexico, New Zealand and plan to expand throughout the United States. The JK Crew Amateur Tour is considered one of the fastest growing amateur tours in the world.

"We are very excited about the opportunity to partner with the JK Crew Amateur as an official sponsor," said Mike Largent, GAA's president. "The opportunity to expose players and fans to the Golf Academy of America brand domestically and abroad is vital for our future growth as the premier golf career college anywhere."

GAA will be named as a presenting sponsor at selected tour events and will be included in all marketing and promotion materials at tournament sites, via printed materials and online.
