Nashville-based golfer Emma Talley picked up a sponsorship this week from Nashville-based ImageQuest, a managed IT and cybersecurity company.

A native of Princeton, Talley is a rising LPGA tour professional. She will play this weekend in the 2021 US Women’s Open June 3-6 in San Francisco, wearing the ImageQuest logo on the left collar of her golf apparel.

Sponsorships such as ImageQuest help fund Talley’s costs on professional tours and live her dream of professional golf success.

“I am so grateful to be joining team ImageQuest,” Talley said. “As a Nashville resident myself, it is both fun and humbling to have the support of a local company. I am looking forward to a long and successful partnership.”

“Emma brings a focus and skillset to her golf game similar to the expertise we bring to IT,” said Milton Bartley, ImageQuest CEO. “We are pleased to support this rising young player from our market and look forward to some of her golf tips!”

Talley is represented by Sterling Sports Management, which assisted in securing the sponsorship.

Talley, a native of Princeton, spent her college career with the University of Alabama, where she won the 2015 NCAA Individual Championship. With this win, Talley became one of only five women in golf history to have won both the NCAA Championship and the US Amateur (2013). After earning her first professional win at the Symetra Tour’s 2017 Island Tour Championship, Talley finished in the top 10 on the Symetra Tour money list and earned her LPGA Tour card for the 2018 season. Today, Talley’s resume includes five top-10 LPGA Tour finishes, with a career-best T3 finish at the 2018 Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic.
