Hyland Signs on the “X”; Inks Golfer Xander Schauffele to Multi-Year Deal

CLEVELAND, July 16, 2019 – Hyland, a leading content services provider for organizations across the globe, has signed a multi-year sponsorship agreement with PGA TOUR player Xander Schauffele. Schauffele’s first tournament as Hyland’s brand ambassador will be The Open at Dunluce Links at Portrush in Northern Ireland on July 18.

This is Hyland’s first venture into sports sponsorship.

“Xander Schauffele is an incredible talent with a tremendous work ethic, innovative strategies and a lot of heart – all the same things we work to bring to our customers, and what makes Xander a great fit to represent Hyland,” said Ed McQuiston, Hyland’s executive vice president and chief commercial officer. “At Hyland, we have been the X factor for so many organizations globally over the years. Now, we believe Xander Schauffele will bring that X factor to life for us on the golf course.”

“I am honored to be a part of Hyland’s very first venture into sports sponsorship,” Schauffele said. “Hyland is all about providing solutions that give their customers a competitive advantage against the field; something I understand well.”

Schauffele joined the PGA TOUR in 2017 and quickly made his presence known.

He added his second victory of the season in early January in Hawaii, where he fired a final-round 62 to win the Sentry Tournament of Champions by one shot. At The Masters, he finished one stroke off the pace.
