Press release – Sponsorship hit for local professional golfer
Local professional golfer, James Taverner, has recently become a member of the Professional Golfers’ Association (PGA) and is now playing for Hendon Golf Club, where he’s set to be a big hit.
James is now in the first year of his fulltime playing career. It’s got off to a flying start, with him winning at every level he has competed at so far. His personal career highlight as a professional was a win at last year’s Weston Homes Classic at Royal Cromer Golf Club. He says, “I shot flawless rounds of -3 and -5 to win by 5 shots from a field of 100 over 2 days.”
To support James’ future success, North London & Herts based Central Heating Specialists Marross have this month signed off a three year sponsorship deal, which involves them providing James with a branded Audi A4 and golf clothing. Marross are also running a deal throughout this three year sponsorship whereby customers can mention ‘James Taverner’ when booking with them and receive 10% off.
James says, “I chose to partner with Marross because after meeting directors Mark and Ross, I found an integrity that I could relate to. We share values of honesty and hard work and are always striving to improve our performance.” Whilst the initial meeting between them was by chance, they met again a few times before Marross approached James about a potential partnership. He continues, “I am proud to represent the company and look forward to a successful working relationship; I believe I will be a good ambassador and help grow their business further.”
Growing up, James’ father and grandfather first got him into the sport, playing on the local pitch and putt course at Oakwood park from the age of seven. James says Tiger Woods was his main inspiration; in fact, Tiger won his first major the year James earned his first handicap, so he’s been watching his progress on the course closely.
Over the next three years, James plans to secure his playing rights on the European Tour and looks set to carve a successful career – all starting from a small pitch and putt course in North London!
