Why PGA Championship contender Cameron Young wears an MLB patch on his shirt

Cameron Young hasn’t made the cut in any of the three majors he’s participated in.

Until this weekend. He’s among the leaders at Southern Hills on Sunday, chasing Mito Pereira and Will Zalatoris at the 2022 PGA Championship

But if you’re watching, you may have noticed an MLB logo on his sleeve as he plays in the final round. What’s the deal there?

It turns out the league sponsors him! Per Golfweek: “On his left shoulder, Young wears the logo of Major League Baseball. That’s a pretty cool sponsorship opportunity that usually comes with access to any MLB park.”

This is something golf fans are wondering about, but they certainly tweet about it when he plays:

As far as I can tell, according to this Golf.com story in 2015, others have been sponsored in the past by MLB:

“[Peter] Malnati is one of four professional golfers sponsored by Major League Baseball and the first to win a Tour event under the “MLB.com” logo. Baseball’s other brand ambassadors include Champions Tour pro Billy Andrade, 2014 Byron Nelson Championship winner Brendon Todd and Tour veteran Spencer Levin.”

I learned something today too!
