Fan and proud supporter of golf in Canada.
Shaw proudly supports golf in Canada through our involvement with the PGA TOUR, Champions Tour and Golf Canada. Being the title sponsor of the Shaw Charity Classic and Premier Partner of the RBC Canadian Open gives us a platform to give back to the community in meaningful ways and provides unique customer and viewer experiences.
In addition to being the broadcast destination for golf through Global TV, we are proud to have top-ranked Canadian golfers Graham DeLaet, Adam Hadwin and David Hearn represent Shaw on the PGA TOUR.
Known to be one of the game's best ball strikers, Graham had a milestone year on the PGA TOUR in 2013, recording seven Top-10 finishes, placing 8th in the FedEx Cup Playoffs, and ending the year with a breakthrough performance in his first Presidents Cup International team appearance.
One of Canada's top-ranked golfers, Adam Hadwin will be leading a strong class of rookies on the PGA Tour in 2015.Having enjoyed considerable success early in his career, including two wins on PGA Tour Canada (then the Canadian Tour), Adam broke out in 2014 with his best year yet, catapulting him almost 500 spots in the Official World Golf Rankings.
We're proud to host the Shaw Charity Classic, a PGA TOUR Champions event bringing some of the most recognized and accomplished golfers in the game to Calgary.
This major international event is a celebration of the things we care about: families, kids, charities and community.
Since its inception, the tournament has raised over $13.8 million with a record-setting donation of $5,217,713 raised in 2016 that was distributed amongst 124 youth-based charities in Alberta.
Conducted by Golf Canada for more than a century, the RBC Canadian Open is Canada's most storied and prestigious golf championship. Shaw is proud to be a premier sponsor of Canada's National Open Golf Championship, providing an ideal platform to enhance awareness of Shaw as a leading network and content experience company in Canada.
