Jet Linx Aviation announces PGA professionals Kevin Chappell and Kevin Streelman have joined team Jet Linx and will be bringing the Jet Linx brand to the best golf courses and biggest tournaments across the country.
“We’re extremely proud to have Chappell and Streelman join the Jet Linx family as new clients, friends and brand ambassadors. We look forward to supporting them as they continue to be leaders on the tour,” said Jamie Walker, President & CEO of Jet Linx. “Being able to ease their stress of travel between tournaments and personally serve their needs is something we take great pride in."
Chappell and Streelman join PGA great Jimmy Walker as brand ambassadors for team Jet Linx. Walker, who has been with Jet Linx since 2014, has enjoyed wide success on tour over the last few years. A member of the victorious 2016 Ryder Cup Team, Walker also won the PGA Championship last year. The founding member of team Jet Linx, Walker was introduced to the personal private jet service by his friend Tom Northington, who is the Base President of the Jet Linx San Antonio location. Walker, who knew the flexibility and convenience of private jet travel would help him better meet the demands of life on tour, had no doubt the best solution was one that could serve him locally and fly him globally.
“It’s an honor to represent Jet Linx while on tour and to be an ambassador for the company, which has improved my experience on tour for many years,” said Walker. “They really roll out the red carpet for us when we pack up the clubs and head to the next event.”
New to team Jet Linx this year are Chappell and Streelman, both regulars on the PGA Tour and clients through the Jet Linx Scottsdale location, where they are friends with Scottsdale Base President Josh Allen. Both players will carry the Jet Linx logo across the country this season.
Chappell‘s career took off during his time at UCLA, during which he led the team to the 2008 NCAA Championship. He ended his time at UCLA with many impressive awards and six titles, setting the school scoring record his senior year. Since then, Chappell has advanced to FedEx Cup Playoffs six consecutive times and made the TOUR Championship for the first time, where he finished runner up. Last month, Chappell won the Valero Texas Open, marking his first PGA TOUR victory.
“Jet Linx is not only about convenience but also about safety,” said Chappell. “They provide a service that is specific to the traveler, and traveling 32 weeks a year, most of the time with my family, allows us to get places quicker and get the kids to bed on time.”
Steelman had his breakout year in 2007, earning his PGA Tour card through Qualifying School after three wins on the mini tours in 2007. With 14 top 10 finishes and a 25th place finish in the FedEx Cup in 2010, Steelman continues to improve and won his first PGA Tour in 2013 at the Tampa Bay Championship.
“Life on the PGA tour can be very spontaneous,” said Streelman. “The ease in travel with Jet Linx while on tour is quite a benefit. Jet Linx offers us an incredible asset and partner in that regard. It is critical to my profession and also affords me more time with my family – something money can’t buy.”
