World Wide Technology (WWT), a global technology solutions provider, today announced its newest ambassador partnership with LPGA player Lauren Stephenson.
As part of the sponsorship, Stephenson will wear the WWT logo on her apparel at all LPGA events throughout the duration of her three-year partnership. Stephenson is debuting her new look this week at the LPGA Drive On Championship at Superstition Mountain Golf and Country Club in Gold Canyon, Ariz.
“We are so thrilled to have Lauren join the WWT team,” said Matt Horner, Executive Vice President at WWT. “She is one of the brightest up-and-coming talents on the LPGA Tour and her approach to golf and life resonates with our values at WWT. Lauren is a wonderful role model for young athletes and we are excited for her to continue to develop her career on the LPGA Tour with WWT by her side.”
Stephenson, 25, has recorded 17 top-25 finishes, including five top-10s, since joining the LPGA Tour in 2019. The South Carolina native is making her 2023 season debut this week at Superstition Mountain and looking to improve upon her career-best T-6 finish. During her stellar amateur career, Stephenson became the first Clemson University female golfer to play in the NCAA Tournament and was a two-time First Team All-SEC selection at the University of Alabama after transferring to Tuscaloosa at the end of her freshman year.
“I’m thankful to partner with people that share my core values, such as trust, humility, honesty, and integrity,” Stephenson said. “I’m excited to be on Team WWT with incredible pros like Keith, Ben, Harry and Billy, and I look forward to having a positive impact on the sport of golf thanks to the support of WWT.”
WWT’s sponsorship of Stephenson builds on the company’s existing involvement in the world of golf with sponsorships and activations with the PGA TOUR across numerous events. WWT is also title sponsor of the APGA Tour’s Pro Golf Association Player Development Program, and currently sponsors other professional golfers, including Keith Mitchell, Ben Griffin, Harry Higgs and Billy Andrade.
