NEW YORK – (BUSINESS WIRE) – iCapital1, the global fintech platform driving access to alternative investments for the wealth management industry, announced a four-year brand ambassador partnership with 2021-2022 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year, Cameron Young, currently ranked 17th in the Official World Golf Rankings.
Cameron, who debuted the iCapital brand on his chest at the Sentry Tournament of Champions last week in Kapalua, Hawaii, joins iCapital Brand Ambassadors Lexi Thompson and Will Zalatoris.
At 25 years old, Cameron had a standout 2021-2022 season that included seven top-three finishes from 25 tournaments, establishing himself as a rising star. In addition to being named Rookie of the Year, he made his Presidents Cup debut for the victorious U.S. Team in September. He placed second at the 150th Open at St Andrews, and earned four additional runner-up finishes last season at the Sanderson Farms Championship, The Genesis Invitational, Wells Fargo Championship, and Rocket Mortgage Classic. With five second-place results, Cameron tied for the most by any player in a single season over the last 40 years. In addition, he finished 19th in the final FedEx Cup Standings, in his first season with a PGA Tour card.
In addition to being an exceptional golfer, Cameron has a passion for helping others. He supports Folds of Honor, a nonprofit organization that provides academic scholarships to the families of fallen and disabled service members and first responders. He also works with the PGA Jr. League, which is committed to bringing communities together through golf.
“Cameron excels in everything he does on and off the course. He is an outstanding role model for young athletes and professionals,” said Lawrence Calcano, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of iCapital. “His passion for golf exemplifies so much of what we value at iCapital – hard work, perseverance, and excellence. We are incredibly proud to welcome Cameron as a brand ambassador to the iCapital team.”
