Expanded Wilson partnership includes golf ball endorsement, sponsorship renewal of the NB3 Junior National Golf Championship
CHICAGO — Wilson Sporting Goods Co. has announced an expanded partnership with Notah Begay III and his youth foundation golf initiative. The multiyear deal includes a golf ball product endorsement and Wilson’s recommitment as the official equipment sponsor of the Notah Begay III Junior Golf Championship.
Begay III made his PGA TOUR Champions debut at Tiburon Golf Club in Naples, Florida this week at the Chubb Classic, where he is playing the Wilson Staff Model golf ball and wearing the Staff Model golf glove.
“With the option to play any ball on tour I chose Wilson Staff Model because it’s faster off the driver and gives me the best spin and feel around the green,” said Begay III.
As part of the expanded relationship, Wilson also announced that it has renewed its deal as the official equipment sponsor of the Notah Begay III Junior Golf National Championship. The popular tournament features an international field of top ranked junior players who qualify through local and regional events to play in the 54-hole national championship that is televised on the Golf Channel.
“We’ve had an incredible relationship with Notah since we started working with the Notah Begay III Junior National Golf Foundation in 2020 and hold him in the highest regards,” said Tim Clarke, President, Wilson Golf. “Our sponsorship of his foundation is just part of Wilson Golf’s commitment to making golf more accessible to young athletes across the country. Being able to partner with Notah as he continues his Champions tour career only strengthens our reputation as a trusted equipment manufacturer and we’re looking forward to seeing his success as part of the PGA TOUR Champions.”
