Hamburg. Berenberg, the second oldest Bank in the world, is further extending its brand ambassador programme: Golf legend Tom Watson represents the Bank on the US Champions Tour.
Berenberg and Watson have agreed on a multi-annual cooperation during which Watson will wear the Berenberg lettering on the front of his cap and will participate in several of the bank’s tournaments, among others both Berenberg Gary Player Invitationals in Wentworth, UK, and in Glen Arbor near New York.
“We are glad to have won, with Tom Watson, another golf legend for our brand ambassador programme,” says Dr Hans-Walter Peters, spokesman of the Managing Partners. “Our athletes have won a total of 22 Major Championships and 26 Senior Major Championships.” Along with Watson, the Berenberg brand ambassador programme already includes the two most successful German golfers, Bernhard Langer and Martin Kaymer, as well as Grand Slam winner, Gary Player, former Ryder Cup captain, Colin Montgomerie, Fred Couples and Branden Grace.
