ANA extends title sponsorship of LPGA major

Japanese airline All Nippon Airways has renewed its title sponsorship of women’s golf major the ANA Inspiration.

The new agreement will run until the 2022 edition of the event, which is the first women’s major of the calendar year.

The deal was signed during this year’s tournament, which concluded yesterday (Monday) at Mission Hills Country Club in California. The event was won by Sweden’s Pernilla Lindberg (pictured), who defeated South Korea’s Inbee Park following an eight-hole play-off.

ANA agreed the new deal with the Ladies Professional Golf Association. ANA is also the official airline of the LPGA.

The airline has sponsored the ANA Inspiration since 2015.
