Glenmorangie renews Sponsorship of The Open Championship

Glenmorangie has announced a three year continuation of its partnership with golf's Open Championship.

The oldest international major championship in the world, The Open has been played across some of the finest links golf courses since 1860. It has a rich heritage and is filled with tradition. Glenmorangie will be the 'Spirit of The Open' when the contest comes to St Andrews, the home of golf, in 2015, and the subsequent two years at Royal Troon and Royal Birkdale.

Marc Hoellinger, President & CEO, The Glenmorangie Company commented: "The Open and Glenmorangie have a natural affinity and we are proud to continue our partnership with The R&A as 'Spirit of The Open'. Glenmorangie's pursuit of perfection mirrors the mindset required from the world's top golfers as they seek to lift the iconic Claret Jug."

Michael Tate, Executive Director - Business Affairs at the R&A, said: "We are delighted to continue our successful partnership with Glenmorangie and look forward to working together for the next three years. We aim to ensure that spectators take away wonderful memories when they attend The Open and Glenmorangie plays a big part in delivering those experiences at the Championship."
