Concur tees up sponsorship with PGA TOUR player Jason Day

Concur, the leading provider of spend management solutions and services in the world, today unveiled a multi-year sponsorship with PGA TOUR Player, Jason Day, the seventh-ranked player in the Official World Golf Rankings. He has won 4 times globally, including the 2014 WGC Accenture Match Play Championship; finished in the Top 10 at the 2010 and 2013 PGA Championship; tied for second at the 2011 and 2013 US Open; and finished third in the Masters in 2013.

The partnership kicks off this week at the 2014 U.S. Open event in Pinehurst, North Carolina, where the Concur logo will be displayed on Day’s golf shirts during the tenure of the multi-year sponsorship deal.

“Jason Day is a tremendous competitor who has built his game on hard work, attention to detail and a willingness to compete against the best, and we’re equally impressed with who he is off the course,” said Robson Grieve, Executive Vice President of Concur. “Best of all, Jason is a global traveller and entrepreneur who instantly recognised the value that Concur offers to businesses, and he’s genuinely excited to wear the brand.”

“I learn about a lot of businesses through the PGA Tour, and Concur really captured my attention because of their innovative approach and track record of success,” said Jason Day. “I’m looking forward to partnering with such an impressive company with a great culture I can identify with.”

The sponsorship will promote the Concur brand name as well as explore different partner and community engagement opportunities with Day.
