As he prepares for another busy summer of golf, former US Open champion Justin Rose has announced a new partnership with Glenmorangie.
Rose, 35, has been named as an ambassador for the whisky brand and will feature as the face of its ‘Spirit of The Open’ campaign, appearing in a series of promotional films.
“It is an honour to forge a partnership with such an iconic malt whisky,” said the world No.7. “I am excited to be part of Glenmorangie’s plans to celebrate the Open Championship and what it stands for.
“Glenmorangie is a whisky I enjoy and I have an appreciation of the history, traditions and years of experience and dedication that have gone into crafting its unique flavour and finish.”
It was at the Open in 1998 that Rose shot to prominence, finishing in a tie for fourth as an amateur at Royal Birkdale. He has gone on to win seven times on the PGA Tour, including the US Open at Merion in 2013. That victory ended a winless drought in the majors for English golfers stretching back to 1996.
Welcoming Rose, Marc Hoellinger, president and CEO of The Glenmorangie Company, said: “We are delighted to introduce Justin Rose as an ambassador for Glenmorangie, The Spirit of The Open. Justin has inextricable links with the Open Championship, an event we have proudly partnered with for a number of years. A proven winner, Justin leaves no stone unturned in his quest to be the best.
“At Glenmorangie, it is a belief in being unnecessarily well made that drives the creation of our award-winning whisky.”
