Team Burns & Wilcox

Great teams share one thing in common: they produce when it counts. It is this innate ability to deliver that connects Burns & Wilcox with PGA professionals Jimmy Walker and Webb Simpson, one of the most storied hockey franchises of all-time, the Detroit Red Wings and Michigan native, forward Justin Abdelcader. Four champions with the speed, power and drive to reach the apex of their fields.

Professional golfers Jimmy Walker and Webb Simpson have a combined 10 PGA tour victories, including career-defining Major victories in 2016 and 2012, respectively. Through their hard-nosed play and 11 championships, the Red Wings have turned the “Hockeytown” moniker into a way of life, celebrating an unparalleled championship culture. Justin Abdelcader scored the game winning goal for Michigan State to claim a national championship and was part of the Red Wings 2008 championship team. All four took their games to the next level by partnering with the most powerful team in specialty insurance: Burns & Wilcox.
