DIO Implant sponsors the LPGA Golf Tournament – LA OPEN.
The LPGA Tour and JTBC announced today that DIO Implant, a Korean-based premier Dental Implant manufacturer with global business in over 70 countries, has assumed title sponsorship of the LA Open on the LPGA Tour, taking place April 21-24 at Wilshire Country Club.
The DIO Implant LA Open made its debut in 2018, marking the LPGA Tour’s return to Los Angeles in more than a decade. Brooke Henderson captured her 10th LPGA Tour win at 16-under par at the 2021 edition of the championship, contested without fans in attendance. The 2020 edition was canceled due to the pandemic. Wilshire Country Club, which opened in 1919, is one of a select few venues to host events on the LPGA, PGA TOUR and PGA TOUR Champions, as well as the PGA Championship.
The 72-hole tournament features 144 of the world’s best female golfers competing for a share of the $1.5 million purse. A variety of ticket packages are available, including exclusive hospitality and general admissions tickets offering a wide degree of entertainment and access.
“We are excited to welcome DIO Implant to the LPGA Tour and its family of title sponsors for the 2022 LPGA Tour season,” said Ricki Lasky, Chief Tour Business and Operations Officer for the LPGA. “Our week at Wilshire Country Club is always a special experience and we are appreciative of the DIO Implant team for their support.”
“It is an honor for DIO Implant to partner with the LPGA Tour, a worldwide global organization that has deep roots in Korea,” said Jincheol Kim, Founder & Chairman of DIO Implant. “We look forward to working with the LPGA Tour in hosting a world-class tournament at Wilshire Country Club in April.”
The DIO Implant LA Open is a proud member of the greater Los Angeles community. Tickets are now on-sale for the 2022 DIO Implant LA Open exclusively online at www.la-open.com.
