NASHVILLE, TN (February 4, 2020) – BrightBenefits, a national provider of dental and vision benefits, has announced  a new marketing partnership with PGA TOUR professional Michael Thompson.

“I’m excited to partner with BrightBenefits; their focus on the future, backed by impressive industry expertise, makes it an appealing brand to represent,” Thompson said. “Like in golf, when you join skill with passion and remain steadfast in the practice and pursuit of your goals, you’re going to be met with success. It’s the process.”

Thompson is a two-time winner on the PGA TOUR, capturing the 2013 Honda Classic and the 2020 3M Open last July. Through his career, he’s earned an impressive 19 top-10 finishes, and in 2012, he nearly won the U.S. Open, shooting a final round 67 to ultimately finish T-2. A decorated amateur, Thompson was a two-time All-American at the University of Alabama, where he won the 2008 Southeastern Conference Individual Championship and was the 2008 SEC Player of the Year. 

Thompson will represent BrightBenefits in a variety of ways, including on social media, branded apparel, through virtual events, and in-person at golf tournaments and events, as can be done safely.
