Randrr Signs PGA Tour Player Chris Kirk

Per a release by Lagardère Sports and randrr, PGA Tour client Chris Kirk has signed an endorsement deal with randrr, a “career opportunities platform for the common good that will revolutionize the way people and companies interact.” Financial terms of the deal were not released, but the multiyear endorsement deal marks the first-ever gold player endorsement for the company.

After an All-American career at the University of Georgia which included a 2005 NCAA Championship and the Ben Hogan Award for best collegiate player in 2007, Kirk decided to begin a professional golf career. He has been playing on the PGA Tour since 2011 and is a four-time winner, including the 2014 FedEx Cup runner-up. He was a member of the U.S. Presidents Cup team in 2015, and sunk a 15-foot putt helping the Americans win on the final hole of the tournament.

Kirk will wear the randrr logo on the chest of his golf shirt at all golf-related appearances, as part of the deal. He will also make appearances at different events to support the brand. The partnership will make its debut this weekend as he prepares for the Deutsche Bank Championship, which he won in 2014.

Randrr was launched this past April by Terry Terhark, an entrepreneur and accomplished talent acquisition leader.
