Farmers and Rickie

Farmers Insurance® has proudly sponsored Rickie Fowler since 2013. His journey to PGA TOUR stardom began in California at the Murrieta Valley Golf Range under the tutelage of his grandfather Taka Tanaka and coach Barry McDonnell.

Before turning pro in 2009, Fowler was regarded as one of the top amateurs in the world, reaching number one in the World Amateur Golf Rankings in 2007. He attended Oklahoma State University, where he won the 2008 Ben Hogan Award, given annually to the best player in college golf. Fowler pays tribute to his alma mater by wearing orange on Sundays. Since then, Rickie has become one of the top players in the game with eight wins worldwide and a regular participant in the Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup.

Fowler has worked alongside Farmers® on disaster resilience efforts. He made a special effort for the residents of Moore, Oklahoma, when a 2013 tornado devastated their city. In addition to matching a $100,000 donation for the Red Cross, he surprised golf teams at three local high schools with a clinic and new Cobra golf bags. Fowler also joined Farmers in rebuilding homes in Sea Bright, New Jersey, following Hurricane Sandy and in Houston, Texas, following Hurricane Harvey.

Farmers and Growing Golf

At Farmers, we celebrate diversity and inclusion within our organization and through the game of golf and we have been able to dedicate our time and resources to making a difference in communities we serve. As the title sponsor of the Farmers Insurance Open, we take seriously the responsibility and opportunity we have to help champion diversity in the sport we love. Part of our commitment to diversity and inclusion has been focused on establishing a networking pipeline designed to help increase diversity in golf participation and through the industry as a whole. The pipeline begins with introductions and invitations to the sport and extends through college opportunities and into the professional space. 

In January 2020, we were proud to support the APGA Tour by hosting the Advocates Pro Golf Association (APGA) Tour Farmers Insurance Invitational during the Farmers Insurance Open, the first APGA Tour event in conjunction with a PGA TOUR event. Tim O’Neal won the event in 2020, and in 2021, Landon Lyons won the now annual event by three strokes. Landon shared his perspective on the role the APGA Tour plays in growing diversity and awareness in the game. 

“I've seen first-hand how support from Farmers Insurance has helped the APGA Tour grow and bring more diversity to the game,” said APGA Tour Farmers Insurance Invitational winner Landon Lyons. “Personally, I've grown more both on and off the course by playing on the APGA Tour than I could have imagined. The players on the APGA Tour are some of the hardest working people that I've been around, and I have made friendships that will last me a long time. This is a great Tour to test your game as a golfer and an even better place to broaden your understanding and become a better person. Farmers is truly making a difference for all of us and for the game and I hope other companies will follow their lead to support the APGA Tour.” 

Farmers is also a proud sponsor of two APGA Tour professionals, Willie Mack III and Kamaiu Johnson. 

Kamaiu Johnson of Tallahassee, Florida won the 2020 APGA Tour Championship. He received an exemption to play in the 2021 Farmers Insurance Open, which would have been his first PGA TOUR event, but unfortunately had to withdraw. He was then awarded exemptions to play in several subsequent events on the PGA TOUR. Johnson won the APGA Tour event held in April 2021 in Las Vegas and will continue to play APGA Tour events through the year. 

Willie Mack III is a former Michigan Amateur champion and was the 2019 APGA Player of the Year, winning two of the seven events he entered. Willie Mack currently plays events on the Florida Professional Golf Tour and APGA Tour. Mack ended up playing in the 2021 Farmers Insurance Open following Kamaiu’s withdrawal, and he was awarded an exemption to The Genesis Invitational that took place in February 2021. In 2021, he also received exemptions into the Rocket Mortgage Classic and John Deere Classic PGA TOUR events, making the cuts at both events, in addition to making the cut at the Korn Ferry BMW Charity Pro Am.

Farmers® is further deepening our relationship with the APGA TOUR by increasing our financial support for player access, working to provide professional and career development opportunities for athletes, and helping to bring the game to younger athletes through events. In fall of 2021, Farmers will be the title sponsor of the APGA Tour Fall Series. This series of three events will host a full field of players and provide the athletes with additional playing opportunities, professional development, and networking tools.

In addition to our increased commitment to the APGA Tour, Farmers has recently announced support of the Black College Golf Coaches Association and an expanded relationship with the Advocates Foundation. By engaging these organizations, we will help create an introduction to the game and a lasting connection that extends through college and into the professional space. This dedicated effort to provide a path into golf will help guide more players from diverse backgrounds into the game, into college, into the industry as a whole and ultimately enhance diversity within various levels of the professional game.
