Mount Pleasant, SC — Sabal Homes, a locally owned and operated South Carolina homebuilder, recently announced their sponsorship with Katie Burnett, an LPGA golfer and University of South Carolina graduate. Sabal Homes will be Burnett’s golf bag sponsor for the rest of the 2016 LPGA season.
“Katie is such an incredible athlete and person,” said Matt Jones, co-founder of Sabal Homes. “She is a wonderful role model in our community and we are honored to support her with this sponsorship.”
Burnett received a full scholarship to the University of South Carolina. Upon graduation, she was the All-Time Career Scoring Leader in South Carolina’s history. Burnett turned professional in June 2012. During her first full season on the LPGA Tour, she earned her first Top 10 finish in Hawaii at the Lotte Championship. This season, she has already posted a Top 5 finish at the Ladies Australian Masters.
“I love having the opportunity to connect with companies from South Carolina,” said Burnett. “Having Sabal Homes as my golf bag sponsor is a friendly reminder of where I’ve come from. South Carolina is such a terrific state to visit and live in if you love golf.”
In addition to a golf bag sponsorship, Sabal Homes will host a future event featuring Burnett at their newest community in Murrells Inlet, Longwood Bluffs at Prince Creek West, when her schedule will permit.
