‘Curo sponsors golf professionals’

Curo sponsoring young golf professionals

Wednesday, May 8th, 2013

We’re excited and proud to announce our sponsorship of two hugely talented young golfers, Ollie Farr and Joe Smoothy. Both players are managed by Blackstar Sports Management which also oversees the careers of a number of other rising golf stars, supporting them on the journey from amateur to professional golf.

Says Julia Whelan, Curo’s Head of Tax and keen (amateur!) golfer:

“Whilst far from being great golfers ourselves at Curo, we try to get out on the course when we can and enjoy the camaraderie of a good game. We were aware that Ollie and Joe were looking for sponsorship and saw it as a great opportunity to get on board, especially given they are local to Curo”.

Ollie Farr is based at the Worcester Golf and Country Club and this year his focus is mainly on the EuroPro, Jamega and European Challenge Tours.

The other golfer Curo is sponsoring is Joe Smoothy who turned professional in 2005 and will be playing mainly on the PGA Midland Region and the Jamega Tours and also with designs on the European Challenge Tour.

Says Julia “We look forward to following Ollie and Joe’s careers and hopefully getting a little help with our handicaps in time for some summer golf!”
