WWT welcomes Mitchell to its roster of golf ambassadors in new multi-year sponsorship
As part of the sponsorship, Mitchell, an up-and-coming talent who captured the attention of the golf world in 2019 with his dramatic win in the Honda Classic, will wear the WWT logo on his shirt at all PGA TOUR events, starting with the Farmers Insurance Open in San Diego this week.
"Keith’s approach on the course aligns with our companywide culture in terms of innovation, grit and precision in the pursuit of success," said Matt Horner, Executive Vice President at WWT. "We’re impressed with his progress, passion and dedication while also being a role model for young golfers. We look forward to partnering with Keith while serving our clients and partners through all the PGA TOUR and the game of golf has to offer."
Throughout the multi-year relationship, Mitchell will participate in WWT’s client and partner events and marketing campaigns while serving as an ambassador for the brand. WWT clients and partners will enjoy benefits that include unique access to PGA TOUR events that Mitchell is playing in. Mitchell will also play in the World Wide Technology Championship at Mayakoba this November.
"I am humbled and honored to partner with World Wide Technology and represent the brand values that we share," Mitchell said. "I admire the company’s dedication to innovation and providing a brighter future for all. Personally, as a newer addition to the PGA TOUR and community, I hope to have a large impact on the future of the golf industry, and the support of World Wide Technology will certainly be a difference-maker in helping me to achieve that goal."
Mitchell proved to be a hardworking and dedicated competitor when he secured his PGA TOUR card in 2016. Just three years later in March 2019, Mitchell earned his first PGA TOUR victory at the Honda Classic, edging Brooks Koepka and Rickie Fowler by one stroke each, thanks to a 15-foot birdie putt on the final hole of the tournament.
WWT’s partnership with Mitchell complements the company’s sponsorship of other professional golfers, including Billy Andrade, Graeme McDowell and Harold Varner III. WWT is also title sponsor of the World Wide Technology Championship at Mayakoba, as well as the APGA Tour’s Pro Golf Association Player Development Program.
