Ollie Schniederjans On Deck To The PGA Tour With First Professional Victory On

Los Alamitos, CA, June 30, 2016 – Haus Of Grey, LLC., the holding company to MATTE GREY and HEATHER GREY brands congratulates Ollie Schniederjans on his first professional victory at the Air Capital Classic in Wichita on the Tour this past Sunday, all but securing his PGA Tour card for the upcoming 2016 / 2017 season.

Schniederjans, the former #1 world ranked amateur, matched the course record on Saturday with a 61 to take a two-stroke lead going into the final round. Shooting a 67 on Sunday totaling 17-under for the week lead to a three-way playoff. Schniederjans won the event with a 18-foot birdie putt on the second hole of the playoff. The victory marked his fourth Top-10 this year and bumped him to 3rd on the Tour Money List.

On earning his PGA Tour status, Schniederjans stated during an interview, “I can’t believe how much I’ve learned this year. I never would’ve thought I had this much to get better at and this much to learn. I needed this year on the Tour, honestly. I don’t think I was ready for the PGA Tour. Maybe I could’ve been ready, but I wasn’t at my best. This year, I’ve gotten so many things in order. I feel like I’m going out there the best version of myself.”

Travis Johnson, Founder of Haus of Grey, said of the former Georgia Tech star, “At the moment this could appear to be a pinnacle moment for Ollie, but I can tell you that his game has only trended upward since we began following his amateur career to now, and that this is just the beginning of what he is going to achieve in his professional career. In my 8 years of building apparel brands and my 27 years of playing competitive golf, I’ve only witnessed a few as talented as Ollie. On behalf of our company and our North American retailers, I can tell you that we are all ecstatic to be in a position to support Ollie’s image as he continues to grow his legacy in the game and within our men’s brand, Matte Grey.”
