Dallas native and reigning PGA Tour Rookie of the Year Jordan Spieth announced this week that he has partnered with AT&T, which is also based in Dallas. The partnership is described as a “multi-year” agreement that will include public appearances, social media and advertising endeavors.
“AT&T is proud to welcome Jordan to our family,” said Mark Wright, vice president of AT&T media services and sponsorships during a press conference. “We expect him to be a great ambassador for our brand. He’s a terrific young man and a tremendous golfer with unlimited potential.”

Spieth has been turning heads in the golf world for the past two years, going from zero status on tour around this time last year to being a PGA Tour winner, and almost becoming the youngest player to ever win the Masters this past April.
Along with sponsoring Spieth, AT&T will become the title sponsor of the Byron Nelson Championship beginning next year, further expanding its presence in the game of golf.
