KPMG has signed a three-year agreement with champion golfer Phil Mickelson under which he will wear the KPMG logo on his headgear at all of his golf-related appearances.

The sponsorship deal starts this week at the 2008 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Mickelson ranks second among active players and is a two-time Masters Tournament champion. He finished in the top 10 at eight of the last nine Masters Tournaments, including wins in 2004 and 2006. He also won the 2005 PGA Championship.

"After talking to its leadership, I came away convinced that KPMG is passionately focused on 'being the best,' through building a culture based on professionalism and integrity," said Mickelson in a statement. "It's that culture and the shared passion to be the best that drew me to this relationship."

"Golf is a sport that has a worldwide following," said Timothy P. Flynn, chairman and CEO of KPMG LLP, in a statement. "Teaming with Phil - one of the world's top and most admired players - will bring the KPMG name additional positive recognition around the globe."
