Grant Thornton signs deal with The Players Championship CHICAGO — Grant Thornton LLP and the PGA TOUR have established dual five-year partnership agreements: one as a Proud Partner of THE PLAYERS Championship; and a second as an Official Marketing Partner of the PGA TOUR. In addition, Grant Thornton has signed a separate partnership with professional golfer Rickie Fowler, who won THE PLAYERS in 2015 and clinched another victory this past weekend at the Hero World Challenge.
