Shift4 Corporation, one of the world's largest independent payment gateways, announced it has signed a sponsorship agreement with PGA TOUR player Ryan Moore.

Moore, a five-year TOUR veteran, made headlines in the past when he elected to play sponsor-free golf. The decision to partner with Shift4 came after in-person meetings and careful consideration.

"We're glad that the reputation of our company and our family is such that Ryan feels he can promote Shift4 without reservation," said Shift4 founder and CEO Dave Oder. "He's a talented young man with a proven track record, ever-increasing skill set, and great potential for the future. We welcome him to the Shift4 family and look forward to watching his success in the years to come."

Moore and Shift4 are both based out of Las Vegas and family managed – similarities that held significance for both parties.

"I don't take the business of sponsorships lightly," said Moore. "There needs to be a level of comfort for the sponsor and for me. Luckily, I was able to find that with Shift4 and the Oder family. I look forward to a long and successful relationship with them."

Shift4 Director of Marketing Gianna Vivo said, "We are unique in our industry because we pride ourselves on being merchant advocates and the only major payment gateway not owned by a bank or processor. Ryan's reputation for independence and originality is a natural alignment for us."

Per the sponsorship agreement, which was facilitated by Icon Sports Management, Shift4's logo will appear on Ryan's left chest, and he will make appearances at Shift4 events throughout
the year.

The relationship will kick off at the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open at TPC Summerlin in Las Vegas. At this event, Shift4 is also sponsoring the Public Safety Appreciation Station to host first responders, active/reserve/retired military personnel, law enforcement and other public safety officials in this private hospitality venue on the 16th green. The tournament takes place Sept. 28 through Oct. 2, and PGA TOUR professionals will be in the venue on Sept. 28 to personally greet the attendees.
