“We are thrilled to help our longtime and valued client Jon Rahm and reach these three new multiyear agreements with terrific brand partners,” said Steve Loy, President of Global Golf and Co-President, Americas at SPORTFIVE. “It’s been great to watch Jon blossom into one of the best golfers in the world and while building out the relationships with the partners who have and will continue to support him every step of the way.”
First, Rahm reached a new long-term partnership extension with Callaway Golf, one of the industry’s leaders in equipment design, performance, and innovation. Rahm will continue to play a full bag of Callaway and Odyssey equipment, wear Callaway headwear, TravisMathew apparel and footwear, and support Topgolf’s global golf entertainment venue business. Topgolf Callaway Brands Corp. will leverage the partnership towards the Company’s strategic goal of strengthening their position as the leader in golf equipment globally, as well as their leadership positions across the modern golf ecosystem.
Rahm recently reached a new multiyear partnership with Banco Santander (Santander Bank in the US), a leading commercial bank with meaningful presence in Europe and the Americas, 164 million customers and one of the largest banks in the world by market capitalization. Rahm is now wearing the Santander logo on the right sleeve of his golf apparel during all competitions, which began at last week’s Open Championship, and will be part of the bank’s events and advertising. The sponsorship will also be a powerful commercial platform for Rahm to interact with Santander customers through hospitality and meet and greets. Rahm is expected to help the Santander brand increase its visibility worldwide, especially in North America, where Santander has a significant presence and where he plays most of his competitive schedule.
Finally, it was announced that Rahm has reached a multiyear extension of his current partnership with Blue Yonder, the leader in digital supply chain transformations. Rahm will continue to serve as brand ambassador for Blue Yonder and will wear the brand’s logo on the chest of his golf shirt during all competitive events. Rahm will champion the pursuit of excellence on behalf of Blue Yonder through joint marketing campaigns and promotions.
