“We are so pleased to have a great company like Anheuser Busch associated with our national championship,” said USDGA Executive Director Rob Strano. Ongoing sponsorships and partnerships with the PGA TOUR, the Champions and LPGA Tours continue to define and enhance Michelob ULTRA’s long-standing relationship with golf.
