Anne-Catherine Tanguay and La Capitale: a win-win partnership
Posted on Dec 13, 2018 by Brad McCabe

After a first year of a mutually beneficial partnership, La Capital Insurance and Financial Services announces that it is renewing its sponsorship agreement with golfer Anne-Catherine Tanguayand increasing its financial support.

By striking an alliance with La Capital Insurance and Financial Services at the beginning of the year, the golfer, who is originally from Québec City, was able to finance her first complete season on the LPGA Tour and to focus on her sports performances. Mission accomplished, since her career has taken a new trajectory this year: not only did she retain her LPGA card, but for the first time in her career she succeeded to finish among the top 20 with a 16th place at the Cambia Portland Classic.

"When you spend most of your time abroad, it is very comforting to wear the colours of a Québec-based company that provides its unwavering support and helps you achieve your dreams. For my part, I found this partner in La Capitale, and I am happy that this major company renews its trust in me" said Anne-Catherine.

For La Capitale that has provided support to a professional athlete for the very first time, the experience proved to be quite positive. "After a very successful year, we are pleased to continue our commitment to Anne-Catherine Tanguay. Her talent, her tenacity and the values that inspire her truly correspond to what La Capitale promotes. We are honoured to accompany her as she progresses on the LPGA Tour," said La Capitale Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Jean St Gelais.

A satisfactory first year
Anne-Catherine had a strong second half of the season on the LPGA Tour, which will enable her to play all tournaments in the 2019 season. She has shown great resilience to improve her scoring average by 2.5 strokes from the first to the second half of the season. She finished 118th on the CME ranking of the LPGA. Among the last eight tournaments in which Anne-Catherine participated this season, she succeeded in making the cut on seven occasions. Throughout the season, her game has changed for the better; consequently she reached a scoring average of 70.5 strokes in the second half of the season.

Anne-Catherine's new season will start on February 14 in Adelaide for the ISPS Handa Australian Open. Afterward, the calendar on the North-American continent will start on March 21 in Phoenix, Arizona. She is still aiming to participate in the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.
