Irish golfer and global brand ambassador for Immedis Shane Lowry will wear the First Tee logo in place of Immedis for the 2021 U.S. Open.
SAN FRANCISCO, Jun 14, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Immedis, the leader in consolidated global payroll solutions and part of Clune Technology Group, today announced that Brand Ambassador Shane Lowry will wear the First Tee logo, in place of the Immedis logo, on the first two days of The U.S. Open. First Tee is an international youth development organization that teaches life skills and helps kids and teens build their strength of character through golf.
Speaking ahead of the event, Shane Lowry, said: "As someone who started playing golf at 13, I know all too well the positive impact the sport can have on a young person. Golf is a fantastic sport and one that so many young people can benefit from taking part in. First Tee is a brilliant organization that works to give kids and teens a taste of all that golf has to offer while also promoting values that are central to golf, like confidence, respect, honesty and integrity. I am delighted to support them at the U.S. Open."
CEO of Immedis, Ruairi Kelleher, commented: "It is a privilege to be able to raise awareness of First Tee’s remarkable work. At Immedis, we are acutely aware of how golf can be a force for good in the lives of young people and we are delighted that both of our golf ambassadors, Shane Lowry and Stephanie Meadow have gotten behind First Tee and the initiative."
Fresh from his tied-fourth finish at the PGA Championship last month, Lowry will now follow in Stephanie Meadow’s footsteps and wear the First Tee logo for the duration of his run at the U.S. Open. Earlier this month, Meadow also sported the First Tee logo on her shirt while competing in the U.S. Women’s Open.
Immedis announced Shane Lowry as a Global Brand Ambassador in 2017. Fellow pro golfer Stephanie Meadow has also served as Global Brand Ambassador since 2020. Just as Shane and Stephanie are committed to their sport, Immedis is committed to supporting Ireland’s top golfers every step of the way. This collaboration with First Tee, an organization dedicated to empowering kids through golf, reflects Immedis’ ongoing commitment to the sport.
