Aflac to Honor Top Amateur Golfer with New Aflac Cup Trophy

Southeastern Amateur, Rice Planters Amateur and Oglethorpe Invitational Join Forces for New Award

COLUMBUS, Ga. – June 18, 2015 – Aflac, the leading provider of voluntary insurance at the work site in the United States, announced today that it will be the presenting sponsor of a new Aflac Cup trophy recognizing the top amateur golfer in three prestigious events.

Mirrored after the PGA TOUR’s season-long championship format, the Aflac Cup will be awarded based on a point system. The amateur player who receives the most points based on standings at the end of the designated tournaments will win the Aflac Cup.

“Aflac has been a supporter of both the amateur and professional golf communities for many years, and we are pleased to extend that partnership even further this year with the introduction of the Aflac Cup,” said Keith Pellerin, vice president of Product Management and Innovation at Aflac. “As the top supplemental insurance provider, it’s fitting for us to celebrate the top amateur golfer of the season.”

The following tournaments will be included in the Aflac Cup scoring:

  • The Southeastern Amateur, hosted by the Country Club of Columbus in Columbus, Georgia
  • The Rice Planters Amateur, hosted by the Snee Farm Country Club in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina
  • The Oglethorpe Invitational, hosted by The Landings Club in Savannah, Georgia

The Aflac Cup will be presented to the winner during the awards ceremony following the Oglethorpe Invitational.
