I GUESS ITS WORKING? Avis has extended its relationship with the PGA TOUR through 2022 as an official marketing partner. Along with the deal, it maintains its designation as the Official Rental Car Company of the PGA TOUR, PGA TOUR Champions and Web.com Tour. 

“We’re thrilled to continue our longstanding relationship with the PGA TOUR,” said Joe Ferraro, president, Americas, Avis Budget Group. “Whether it’s business or leisure travel, Avis is committed to providing our customers with innovative mobility solutions that redefine the traditional rental experience. Through this partnership, we’re also giving them the freedom and flexibility to sneak in a little golf along the way.”

“We truly value our relationship and the mobility services Avis provides to our fans, players, staff and tournaments,” said Brian Oliver, PGA TOUR Executive Vice President of Corporate Partnerships. “As a business whose employees and players travel week to week on multiple Tours around the world, and with fans who travel frequently for business and pleasure, Avis’ broad availability of vehicles combined with ultra-professional staff removes a lot of the stress of travel while creating a valuable partnership for both the PGA TOUR and Avis.”

YOUR FEEL WILL LOVE YOU! Kentwool announced the introduction of a therapeutic sock for foot pain relief. The new SensationWool sock, according to the company, features superfine Merino wool in combination with Nufabrx nylon, which is infused with capsaicin and a synthetic cooling agent. This combination of warming and cooling ingredients, similar to those found in over-the-counter pain treatments, the company said, provides temporary relief of foot-related aches and pains of muscles and joints associated with strains, sprains, arthritis, bruises, cramps, stiffness and soreness.

“Kentwool socks were born out of a desire to keep customers comfortable, helping them to pursue the activities they love with less pain and more enjoyment,” said Lauren Hubbard, president of Kentwool Performance Apparel. “The SensationWool is an extension of that commitment to comfort, taking the proven performance properties of wool and coupling them with the power of Nufabrx technology. The socks’ warming and cooling sensations deliver pain relief without the mess and inconvenience often associated with creams and pills. We’re thrilled to offer our customers an easy and effective way to ease their pain.”

The company said the SensationWool’s pain management features are lab-tested to last through 30 wash cycles, and the incorporated ingredients are cosmetic-grade and safe for regular wear. The new Kentwool SensationWool is available now exclusively at kentwool.com and features a retail price of $24.99. The sock is available in women’s MD and LG, and men’s MD, LG and XL sizes. 

“We’re excited Kentwool chose Nufabrx yarn for use in its most innovative socks to date,” said TexDel CEO, Jordan Schindler. “We believe clothing will start to care for your body in entirely new ways. We see the day when well-being is simply part of your everyday outfit, and the SensationWool sock is at the forefront of this movement.”
