Patrick Cantlay has ended his partnership with Goldman Sachs, the world’s fifth-ranked golfer announced. According to DealBook, Goldman Sachs opted not to renew its contract with Cantlay, who they signed to a three-year deal in 2020.
Cantlay initially represented Goldman’s online consumer banking platform, Marcus, on his headwear but more recently has featured just the Goldman name. A spokesperson for Goldman told DealBook that they constantly evaluate their partnerships and that at this time, their logo will no longer appear on Cantlay’s hat.
This news comes after rumors swirled earlier that Cantlay was refusing to wear a hat at the Ryder Cup out of protest for not being paid to compete in the international team competition. However, Cantlay denied these claims and said he wasn’t wearing a hat because the team’s headwear didn’t fit well. Additionally, Cantlay was set to play in the Hero World Challenge in two weeks in the Bahamas but was taken off the final commitment list along with friend Xander Schauffele.
