Palm Harbor, FL-- The Tampa Bay Championship found a presenting sponsor. EverBank Financial Corp, headquartered in Jacksonville, agreed to sponsor the tournament, less than two weeks before it's scheduled to begin.
"We've had a great experience for several years as supporters of THE PLAYERS Championship at TPC Sawgrass," said Blake Wilson, EverBank's president and COO. "We believe now is the right time for us to step up our PGA TOUR sponsorchip with the Tampa Bay Championship."
EverBank owns the naming rights for the football stadium in Jacksonville.
There is no agreement beyond 2013, but it's hoped that a presenting sponsorship could lead to a title sponsorship for the event.
The Tampa Bay Championship is in its 13th season on the PGA Tour, and played on the Copperhead Course at the Innisbrook Resort.
