IBAO Sponsors Promising Golfer, Richard Scott, for Second Year in a Row

Ontario Insurance Brokers Renew Sponsorship Agreement with Richard Scott

TORONTO, Feb. 25 2008 – The Insurance Brokers Association of Ontario (IBAO) announced today that it is renewing its sponsorship agreement with Kingsville, Ontario professional golfer Richard Scott.

24 year-old Richard Scott turned pro over a year ago after capping off his amateur career with a third Canadian Men’s Amateur Championship title and a second place finish at the World Amateur Golf Championships in 2006.

During his first professional season, Scott boasted two top 10 performances while on the Canadian Tour and a victory at The Championship at Walnut Creek on the Tar Heel Tour. Richard also made it to the second stage of the gruelling PGA Tour National Qualifying Tournament in an attempt to earn his PGA Tour card.

“Richard has represented us well and we’re proud to be associated with his success,” said IBAO CEO Randy Carroll.

“In our first year in sponsoring him last year, Richard had the chance to come out and meet some of our brokers on the golf course. We look forward to holding an event with him again because he’s a really sharp young man.”

Richard Scott tees off at his first event of the season this week in South Carolina at the Tar Heel Championship.
