Nationwide is proud to be the presenting sponsor of the Memorial Tournament. We're so pleased to be associated with golf's greatest player, Jack Nicklaus, and an event that draws the national spotlight to our hometown, Columbus, Ohio.
Although the Memorial Tournament has had strong sponsor relationships in the past, for the first time in its history, the Tournament has a strong, local sponsor. This partnership brings together two great central Ohio brands with a common focus on giving back to the community and presenting one of the best golf tournaments in the world.
We're not new to golf. In fact, we have been a partner with the PGA TOUR for over 30 years as sponsor of a Champions Tour event in the 1990s and as the longest-running umbrella sponsor in the history of the Nationwide Tour.
We look forward to this year's Memorial Tournament and the opportunity to show fans Nationwide is On Your Side.
