February 26, 2019

LITTLE ROCK, Ark.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 26, 2019--Stephens Inc., an independent financial services firm, today announced that it has expanded its golf brand ambassador program with the sponsorship of PGA Tour member, Dicky Pride. He joins golfers David Lingmerth, Austin Cook, Andrew Landry, Stacy Lewis and Gaby Lopez as Stephens representatives.

Dicky Pride plans to extend his professional playing years on the Champions Tour beginning in July this year when he turns 50. His first competition will be the Senior Open Championship, played this year in England at Royal Lytham & St. Annes Golf Club.
