Golfer Jim Furyk sponsored by Johnnie Walker

Published:  23 July, 2008

Pro-golfer Jim Furyk signs a three-year sponsorship deal with Diageo-owned Scotch whisky brand Johnnie Walker.

Diageo is also sponsoring Furyk's lifelong coach - his father Mike Furyk.

This is the second time the parties have worked together, as Furyk was sponsored by Johnnie Walker from 1999-2001.

UK-based Diageo said the Johnnie Walker striding man logo and Johnnie Walker Collection branding will appear on the back yoke of the neck of Mr Furyk's golf shirt whenever he is participating in personal appearances, the PGA Tour and USGA sanctioned events.

Bill Topf, Johnnie Walker brand director, Diageo, North America, said: "We are proud to welcome Jim Furyk back into the Johnnie Walker family.

"Furyk's on- and off-course demeanor is a perfect fit for the brand, and he truly represents the core fundamentals of our 'Keep Walking' message."
