Bollington Insurance sponsors young professional golfer

Bollington Insurance Brokers Limited is delighted to announce a deal to sponsor 22-year-old golf professional Tyrrell Hatton, of Marlow, England, on the European Tour this season.

Bollington is looking to play a substantial part in Tyrrell’s progress, helping him to realise his significant promise competing on the European Tour alongside the likes of Jamie Donaldson, Rory McIlroy and Ian Poulter.

Tyrrell has progressed exceptionally quickly since turning professional in 2011, moving in successive seasons through the EuroPro and Challenge Tours to qualify for a place on the prestigious European Tour this year.

He has enjoyed a sensational start to life on the tour in 2014, tying for 10th position in the 2014 HSBC Abu Dhabi Championship in a field including 2 of the top 5 in the world, followed very recently with a superb performance in last weekend’s Joburg Open in South Africa, with a highly impressive 16 under par placing Tyrrell joint 2nd in the field of over 200 competitors.

As a result, his world ranking has dramatically improved from 800 in the world to 208 in just 12 months.

Bollington CEO Paul Moors commented “Bollington is proud to support Tyrrell, a talented young sportsman who demonstrates real commitment and application to achieving success. We have always backed talent at Bollington, and Tyrrell is an outstanding young prospect who is already showing big signs of what he is capable of on the European Tour.”

Tyrrell commented “I am delighted to be working with a progressive business like Bollington who believe in developing talent and giving young people a chance. I look forward to meeting their clients throughout the year.”

Bollington have worked with Tyrrell’s Wilmslow-based agent Georgia Golf to broker the sponsorship deal.
