“The team at Pro Links Sports knows what it takes to put together a successful event.  The feedback I hear from the players, participants and sponsors is always highly complimentary, and my own experiences have been nothing short of first-class.  They are true professionals and the proven leaders in their field.”

Arnold Palmer, World Golf Hall of Fame Member PGA TOUR Champions Professional

“I have known Hollis for about 20 years now and have played in many of the tournaments and events they run on the PGA TOUR Champions.  There is no doubt in my mind that they run the very best tournaments we play.  Their ability to coordinate sponsor/player relationships is unequalled.”

Nick Price, World Golf Hall of Fame Member PGA TOUR Champions Professional

“Pro Links Sports always exceeds our expectations in the way they manage not only the golf tournament, but all of the social and entertainment events as well.  They continue to create unique experiences both on the course and off.  I always look forward to playing in a Pro Links Sports run event.  Hollis Cavner has a great team.”

Jay Haas , PGA TOUR Champions Professional




“The 3M Championship could not be possible without our strong partnership with Pro Links Sports. Their experience in directing, managing and running this tournament is an undeniable and essential lead in the execution of this great event.  3M has come to lean on Pro Links Sports for more than just the 3M Championship.  As a result we are pleased to recognize them as our official and exclusive partner relating to corporate golf outings and Master’s programs.  3M is pleased to work with Pro Links’ forward thinking management team and talented staff that cater to our customers needs.  Our events are better as a result of their work and our business is better from our partnership.”

Jeff Lavers, 3M  Vice President and General Manager 3M Mining, Oil and Gas Solutions Division

“Hollis Cavner is the principal reason that my company is the sponsor of the Valspar Championship. Hollis brought the concept and details of a sponsorship to me; acting as my agent of record he expertly negotiated the sponsorship deal with the PGA TOUR, resulting in the best financial and operational terms of any PGA TOUR sponsorship; and he and his terrific team at Pro Links have turned around an event that was near extinction and made it, in only two years, one of the very best events on the PGA TOUR. The Pro Links team’s work has been lauded by the PGA TOUR, NBC Sports, the players, caddies, player’s families, the Copperhead charity, the local community, and most importantly Valspar’s customers. The activation of the event has been fabulous, and I am totally confident it will continue to get even better in the future years under Hollis’ leadership. Hollis and his team are the BEST at what they do, and are recognized as such by everyone who has seen their work, or are lucky enough to be their customer. I cannot overstate how pleased I am with Hollis’ work as my agent of record and as my
Executive Tournament Director.”

Gary Hendrickson, Chairman and CEO, The Valspar Corporation

“Hollis Cavner and Pro Links Sports have represented Nature Valley since 2011 in our dealings with the PGA TOUR. Nature Valley had been a long time Tour sponsor and added a PGA TOUR Champions Title sponsorship in 2011. Hollis and his team took a good sponsorship and took it to an entirely new level. He pushed the PGA TOUR to provide us better assets and negotiated significant savings on top. He also has made our PGA TOUR Champions event one of the best Tour events of the year. Hollis’ relationship with players and his connections within the industry were instrumental in making the event a success. Our clients are drawn to the event, which gives us a tremendous opportunity to build our business. Pro Links provides both excellent strategic and executional support, which makes our event such a success in the eyes of all involved.

I highly recommend Pro Links and Hollis. You won’t find better partners.

Jon Nudi,  President, Europe & Australasia, General Mills, Inc.


“Our experience with the PGA TOUR Champions has been extremely successful for our business. Pro Links Sports and specifically Bryan Naugle are the main reasons for the significant return we receive on our investment.  They have been able to provide a very high quality experience for our business partners, customers and other important business relationships.  They have excellent relationships with the players, vendors, the PGA TOUR and other key constituencies in order to be highly successful at what they do.”
