The 49 Year Old Texan famously beat Tiger Woods by one shot to win the 2002 PGA Championship, shooting 72, 66, 72 and then 68 in the fourth round for the title. Victory at Hazeltine National catapulted him into the Top 20 of the Official World Golf Ranking.
Rich Beem, who now joins Colin Montgomerie, Darren Clarke, Cristie Kerr and Iona Stephen as golf ambassadors for the Loch Lomond Whiskies brand, has also created a cocktail, called the ‘Beemer’ using the brands 12 Year Old single malt whisky.
Commenting on the news, Rich Beem, said: “Joining Loch Lomond Whiskies is a great honour for me. I’m very excited to work with the experts to create my very own cocktail recipe. It’s a great shame that The 149th Open has been cancelled for 2020, but I’m pleased to be working with Loch Lomond Whiskies to bring some entertainment to golf fans during this tough time. Hopefully it won’t be long before we can all enjoy a wee dram together!”
In February 2018, Loch Lomond announced a five-year partnership with The Open, to be the official spirit of the golf championship.
