Flogas to sponsor Ireland’s newest touring golf professional
Flogas Ireland have announced that they will become Cormac Sharvin’s first commercial sponsor, as the former Walker Cup star embarks on a career in the professional golf ranks.
A talented hurler, Sharvin (23), who hails from Downpatrick, Co. Down and plays out of the Ardglass Golf Club, switched to golf later in life than most top amateurs at age 15, but quickly caught up and achieved a scratch handicap within two years. He finished off his amateur career in style with a 100%-win record during the 2015 Walker Cup.
John Rooney, Managing Director, Flogas Ireland, said, “We are very pleased to be able to support Cormac in his ambitions to become a successful professional golfer. Flogas is an Irish-owned company operating on an all-Ireland basis, much like golf, and we have big ambitions as an energy company, in the way that Cormac has great ambitions to make his mark in professional golf.”
Cormac said, “I’m really excited to be turning professional and very grateful to Flogas for their support and faith in me, at the beginning of my career. I am fully aware of the significant costs that can be incurred by every touring professional, which is why this sponsorship deal is so important to me, taking some of the financial worries away, allowing me to concentrate on developing my game and being as competitive as possible.”
