2018 Players Championship Announces Corporate Partners

The Players announced that Grant Thornton LLP, an accounting and advisory organization based in Chicago, will join Morgan Stanley and Optum as the three exclusive Proud Partners for the 2018 Players Championship, the premiere golf tournament held annually in Northeast Florida.

Grant Thornton LLP and the PGA Tour have established dual five-year partnership agreements: one as a Proud Partner of The Players Championship, and a second as an official marketing partner of the PGA Tour.

Grant Thornton will have a broad presence on the course and through hospitality venues when the championship is held at TPC Sawgrass the week of May 7-13, 2018.

“Grant Thornton and The Players are focused on delivering best in class value and experiences for their customers,” executive director of The Players Jared Rice said. “It’s exciting having a partner with that shared vision and shared sense of purpose, I think that will be really effective for us as we look to continue to grow the status and stature of the tournament.”
