Las Vegas, Nevada (Janaury 6, 2014)–Ryan Moore was the best player in the history of the UNLV Rebel golf program, and some venture to say his 2004 season of amateur golf was the best in the history of the sport. And with three PGA TOUR victories and counting, he is quickly staking his claim to become the best PGA TOUR player to live in the Las Vegas Golf Region. And as he continues to make his mark in professional golf, Moore is taking time to share his wealth with area charities including the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. Moore and Las Vegas company Shift4 have announced that they will work together again in 2014 as sponsorship partners and in the ongoing Birdies4Shriners campain which has raised more than $165,000 for the Shriners. Read on for how you can become involved and help Moore and Shift4 support a terrific and worthwhile cause. –By Brian Hurlburt
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. Click to sign up for Birdies4Shriners.
"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.
