Commits to Sponsor Championships
The 23rd playing of the US Deaf Golf Championships in St. Louis continues to grow in committed sponsors interested in supporting the best Deaf Golfers in the country. This week the USDGA negotiated an agreement with Commerce Bank to be part of the impressive list of corporate supporters.
Commerce Bank traces its roots back to 1865 and today, the Missouri-based company with headquarters in Kansas City and St. Louis, operates in three states: Missouri, Kansas and Illinois. Commerce Bank, with over $13.9 billion in assets, provides financial services for businesses and individuals. In 1989, Commerce was honored to be the only bank in Missouri to receive the Presidential "E Star" award recognizing the Bank's contribution to the promotion of export activity. In July of 1991, Commerce was ranked "Best Overall Performer" by United States Banker for an unprecedented second year in a row. Commerce also earned the top safety ranking for the fifth year in a row. Money Magazine named Commerce Bank the "Best Bank in Missouri" in 1995, citing the attractiveness of consumer accounts and services. A 1997 Dean Witter report named Commerce as one of the top 10 banks in the nation for technology. Today the bank serves customers from nearly 340 locations in Missouri, Kansas, and Illinois using a variety of delivery platforms including an expansive ATM network, full-featured online banking and a central contact center.
â€œIt is an honor to have such a fine company as one of our leading sponsors,â€ said Rob Strano, Tournament Director for the championships. With the event only a few weeks away the sponsorship team is continuing to grow and ensure that this will be the best event on the Deaf Golf calendar for 2007.
