Stephens Inc. Announces Multi-Year Sponsorship of PGA Golfer Sebastian Cappelen

Stephens, an independent financial services firm, announced today its multi-year sponsorship of PGA Tour member Sebastian Cappelen. As part of the agreement, the Stephens logo will appear on the left sleeve of Cappelen’s golf shirt during tournament play through 2022.

A 2014 graduate of the University of Arkansas, Cappelen, 29, is a native of Denmark and currently resides in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.

Cappelen finished 16th on the Korn Ferry Tour in 2019, and he earned his PGA Tour card after a runner up finish in the Wichita Open. During an impressive start to his PGA Tour career, he has played in 13 tournaments and finished in the top 35 three times, including a tie for 6th at the American Express.

Prior to turning professional, Cappelen played in the Palmer Cup in 2011, 2012, and 2013. During his college career, he became the first four-time Razorback All-American golfer and the school’s all-time leader in scoring average (72.0). In addition, he won the 2013 SEC individual title.

“It is an exciting time in golf as there is so much emerging talent, which is certainly exemplified at the University of Arkansas,” said Warren Stephens, Chairman, President and CEO of Stephens. “We are thrilled to have Sebastian join our team of brand ambassadors. He brings integrity, passion and sportsmanship in his life and in every round he plays. These are shared values that he has with us at Stephens. We look forward to being a part of his professional career.”

“I’m very excited and honored to be partnering up with Stephens,” Cappelen said. “I love the Arkansas connection and my past experiences with Mr. Stephens have been incredible. I look forward to building a strong and lasting relationship.”

Cappelen joins fellow PGA Tour and LPGA Tour professionals Austin Cook, Andrew Landry, David Lingmerth, Maria Fassi, Gaby López and Stacy Lewis, all University of Arkansas alumni, as Stephens’ brand ambassadors.
