RYDER CUP STARS SET FOR £2 MILLION WINDFALL IF EITHER CAN CONQUER CHAMBERS BAY
Lee Westwood and Darren Clarke are both aiming for first time US Open success when they tee off at Chambers Bay on Thursday and, courtesy of sponsors Dunlop, they’ll also land a bumper £2 million bonus to go with it.
Westwood and Clarke, who endorse Dunlop clothing, will land a massive £2 million courtesy of a unique sponsorship deal that they enjoy with the leading golf brand. The agreement stipulates that the Ryder Cup stalwarts are entitled to scoop £2 million for every major championship victory. If either does secure victory at Chambers Bay, their sponsors will be the first to toast their success.
David Newbury, Dunlop’s Head of Brand Marketing, said: “Darren and Lee are two of the most popular golfers on tour. They have been part of the wonderful game of golf for so many years and deserve every success. We wish them the best of luck across the four days.
