3M And ANNIKA Foundation Announce Collegiate, Junior Golf Partnership

The ANNIKA Foundation – golf Hall-of-Famer Annika Sorenstam’s charitable organization – announces 3M will sponsor its ANNIKA Award, ANNIKA Intercollegiate and global series of ANNIKA Invitational junior tournaments.

Since 2007 the ANNIKA Foundation has had two parallel missions: 1) teaching children the importance of living a healthy, active lifestyle through fitness and nutrition, and 2) offering aspiring junior golfers opportunities to pursue their dreams. The new partnership with 3M reflects both organizations’ dedication to empowering the next generation, especially women and girls.

“3M and Annika are a natural fit as we both represent excellence, integrity, and competitiveness,” said 3M Chairman, President and CEO Inge Thulin. “I am personally 100 percent committed to this partnership with the ANNIKA Foundation as Annika is an ideal global citizen with whom to align our global company.”

“We’re honored to welcome 3M as a sponsor of the ANNIKA Intercollegiate, ANNIKA Award and our series of Invitational tournaments,” said Annika, an eight-time Rolex Player of the Year Award winner and the first and only woman to shoot 59 in an LPGA event. “We share similar passions for giving back and through our partnership, 3M will be crucial to bringing even greater success to these Foundation initiatives.”

3M will be the Presenting Sponsor of the ANNIKA Award. Created earlier this year, it will be given to the most outstanding NCAA Division I female golfer beginning in 2014. The winner will also receive an exemption into the Kraft Nabisco Championship, one of the LPGA Tour’s major championships.

The Haskins Commission will oversee ANNIKA Award voting from players, coaches and media. For the last 42 years it has presented the Haskins Award to the most outstanding Division I male golfer.

Annika will present her namesake award at a gala reception during the inaugural ANNIKA Intercollegiate, September 27-30, 2014. 3M will be the Presenting Sponsor of the tournament.
