Shift4 Renews Sponsorship of PGA TOUR Professional Ryan Moore
LAS VEGAS (Marketwired) Friday, January 3, 2014 –
Shift4 Corporation, provider of DOLLARS ON THE NET®, the world’s largest independent payment gateway, continues its involvement in the world of professional golf by today announcing a renewal of its sponsorship agreement with Las Vegas-based PGA TOUR player Ryan Moore.
“Ryan has been a pleasure to work with over the past couple of years and has done us proud as an ambassador of the Shift4 brand and an honorary member of the Shift4 family,” said CEO Dave Oder.
“Shift4 and its Founders have been wonderful, gracious sponsors who not only recognize my achievements on the course, but who also take the time to recognize important moments in my personal life, such as my wedding and the birth of my son,” Moore said. “It’s an honor to work with them and I look forward to a long partnership.”
Moore has been an integral part of Shift4’s Birdies4Shriners fundraising program where contributors make a donation to Shriners Hospitals for Children each time Moore records a shot under par in tournament play. With the renewal of his sponsorship, the company expects to continue Birdies4Shriners for the 2014 season. To date, more than $165,000 has been donated in support of Shriners Hospitals for Children as a result of this program.
Per the sponsorship agreement, which was facilitated by Icon Sports Management, Shift4’s logo will continue to appear on Ryan’s left chest and he will make appearances at Shift4 events throughout the year. Financial details of the contract were not made public.

About Ryan Moore
Ryan David Moore (born December 5, 1982) is a professional golfer from Puyallup, WA, who is currently playing on the PGA TOUR and ranked 33rd in the OWGR. Coming up the ranks, he has reached the pinnacle of each echelon, from the world’s #1 ranked junior golfer in 2001, to being the top collegiate player in the nation, as well as top Amateur in the nation in 2004, to his breakthrough victory on the PGA TOUR at the Wyndham Championship in 2009 and two subsequent PGA TOUR victories, including the recent CIMB Classic in Malaysia, October 2013. He may still be most famous for his record breaking amateur season in 2004 where he seized five titles in one summer (including the U.S. Amateur, U.S. Publinks, NCAA Championship, Western Am, and World Am Titles). Many golf experts claim this is the greatest feat by an Amateur golfer in the modern era, dating back to, and only rivaled by the late Bobby Jones himself.
