Notah Begay III partners with PointsBet for golf offerings

Notah Begay III

Four-time PGA Tour winner Notah Begay III (Pueblos of San Felipe and Isleta/ Diné) has been named a PointsBet ambassador. Begay, 48, will provide analysis for the sportsbook’s golf offerings, including through its partners at NBC Sports and The Golf Channel, where he works as an analyst and on-course reporter.

“We at PointsBet are thrilled to partner with Notah and continue to build upon our expertise in the game of golf. Notah’s incredible knowledge of the game and his unique relationships across the country will serve our company and our customers, and ensure we are the premier sportsbook for golfers everywhere,” Johnny Aitken, CEO of PointsBet USA, said in a statement Aug. 4. “This partnership also provides PointsBet with a genuine connection to NB3 Foundation and ensures we are playing an appropriate role in the communities in which we operate.”

Begay, a graduate of Stanford University where he was a 1st Team All-American and a teammate of Tiger Woods, won four times within a 12-month span on the PGA Tour in 1999 and 2000.

Begay will also work with PointsBet’s diversity initiatives, including within tribal communities, according to the company. PointsBet said it will partner with Begay’s NB3 Foundation, which strives to improve the health of Native American children.

“It’s with great excitement and anticipation that I pursue this new venture in collaboration with PointsBet.  I look forward to standing alongside a company that truly understands the unique and intrinsic values of golf but also recognizes the importance of community,” Begay said in a statement. “Creating new opportunities and making an impact in the communities we serve will be the benchmark of our team.”

In recent years, Begay has helped the Seminole Tribe by holding a golf clinic for kids on the Big Cypress Reservation and by playing in the Chairman of the Greens Charity Golf Tournament.
