(JUPITER, FL) The National Golf Foundation (NGF) the industry-leading provider of information and insights into the business of golf announces more than 100 winners from the first phase of the $100,000 American Golf Census sweepstakes.

Top-prize recipients randomly selected in golf's largest-ever sweepstakes include D. Sibley of Clifton, VA (Nike SQ Mach Speed irons), Munaff Abdul of Modesto, CA (Callaway X-20 irons) and Tom Mattus of Port Jefferson, NY (TaylorMade Burner Plus irons). Other Census participants were awarded drivers, wedges, putters and balls from Callaway, Nike Golf and TaylorMade.

The American Golf Census presents golfers with a unique opportunity to support the game. The information obtained from the Census will allow policymakers to better understand and, in turn, further enhance golf's impact on the lives of millions of Americans. Census participants are automatically entered into the sweepstakes.

"I couldn't believe it when they told me I won," says winner D. Sibley. "It took only two minutes to complete the Census and, for helping this great game, I was rewarded with new irons that are going straight in my bag."

Grand-prize winners of dream vacations to Pebble Beach, Pinehurst, Scotland and Ireland; golf instruction at the ANNIKA Academy in Orlando, FL; and a tournament weekend in Augusta, GA will be announced on Tuesday, November 2 (Election Day). Others will win equipment from Callaway, Nike Golf and TaylorMade.
