ConvergeOne, the North West based solutions specialist has agreed a 3 year deal to sponsor promising 20 year old golf professional Tyrrell Hatton.
Followers of Golf will have been watching Tyrrell’s ascent to fame closely over the years. To others however, he will have become more recognisable when in 2010 he played as the youngest amateur in the Open at St Andrew’s and then turned professional in 2011 when he narrowly missed out on a place in the Walker Cup team Tyrrell recently won the final stage of qualifying for the 888Poker.com PGA EuroPro Tour at Frilford Heath in Oxfordshire with a magnificent score of 18 under par which included 24 birdies!
ConvergeOne has always supported ambitious young people and has been running a successful apprentice scheme since its inception. This next step into sports sponsorship was a natural progression according to MD, Mark Johnson:
“We’re pleased to be sponsoring Tyrrell as he makes the leap from amateur to professional golf. We’ve always supported ambitious young people and, being keen golfers ourselves, it seemed a fantastic opportunity to combine our love for the game with our belief in UK golf talent. We’ve known about Tyrrell for a number of years and feel confident that he will be a star of future golf tournaments.”
The sponsorship deal, which was brokered through agent John Fay at Georgia Golf Company, will see Hatton sporting ConvergeOne branding on his golf shirts and sweater. ConvergeOne’s clients will also benefit from the sponsorship deal, with Tyrrell due to appear and coach at annual golf events for the IT solutions company later this year.
Tyrrell commented on the sponsorship “I am delighted to be working with a progressive firm like ConvergeOne. Moreover, a firm that invest in the future and the long term gave me great confidence in my own ability. I very much look forward to meeting ConvergeOne clients out here on Tour soon.”
