The Web.com TOUR Comes to Stonebrae!
We have a big announcement to make! Effective immediately, what has been known as the Nationwide TOUR will now be known as the Web.com TOUR! Web.com recently signed a 10-year agreement to become the umbrella sponsor of the pathway to the PGA TOUR. Web.com is the leading provider of internet services and online marketing solutions for small- to medium-sized businesses (SMBs). Based on this, it is expected that reach to SMBs through sponsorship will be greatly expanded!
In addition to the umbrella sponsorship, Web.com will also become an official marketing partner of the PGA TOUR, Web.com TOUR and Champions TOUR.
A joint statement made by PGA TOUR Commissioner Tim Finchem; David L. Brown, Web.com’s chairman, president and CEO; and Bill Calfee, president of the Web.com TOUR, said:
“This sponsorship is a perfect fit for us – Web.com is committed to helping small- and medium-sized businesses compete and succeed online, just as the Web.com TOUR helps talented, dedicated athletes maximize their potential and fulfill their dreams,” Brown said. “The Web.com brand will gain exceptional visibility as a result of our sponsorship of the Web.com TOUR. In addition, we believe that the professionalism and competition of PGA TOUR golf resonates strongly with small- and medium-sized business owners, making the national and international exposure we achieve with this sponsorship an unparalleled opportunity to reach more of our target market.”
In addition, Web.com is also expected to enhance each Web.com TOUR community through charitable outreach. In 2011, the TOUR raised $7.35 million for charity, pushing its cumulative total since its inception in 1990 to $75 million.
Stay tuned because we are also currently in negotiations to move our annual event to a July date that would allow us to eliminate any weather issues that we have been confronted with over the past few years. Once a decision has been made, we will make a formal announcement!
