LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - Sep 11, 2012) - Shift4 Corporation, the world's largest independent payment gateway, today congratulates PGA TOUR players Ryan Moore and Scott Piercy, both sponsored by the company, on advancing to the PGA TOUR Championship.
"We are absolutely thrilled with the performance of these two fine athletes that we have chosen to represent our brand," said Shift4 CEO Dave Oder.
Piercy and Moore, both Las Vegas locals, have joined the Shift4 family within the past year. The pair is currently ranked among the top 30 golfers in the FedEx Cup Playoff standings, which qualifies them to participate in this year's TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta, Ga., to be held September 19-23.
"It's been exhilarating to watch these two young professionals improve their games and consistently move up the ranks," said Shift4 COO Kathy Oder. "The caliber of their performance has also been great for our Birdies4Shriners charity campaign. To date, their play has generated more than $60,000 in donations, and we hope to see that number go much higher."
Shift4's Birdies4Shriners campaign matches golf with giving. For the duration of the 2012 season, Shift4 has tracked the performance of Moore and Piercy and has made a donation to the Shriners Hospitals for Children each time one of them scored a birdie, eagle, or ace. In March, Shift4 extended the opportunity to participate in this fundraiser to the public.
The final amount donated to the Shriners Hospitals for Children will be announced during this year's Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, which is played in Shift4's backyard at TPC Summerlin in Las Vegas. Those interested in donating for the remaining tournaments (including the upcoming TOUR Championship by Coca Cola) should sign up at www.shift4.com/birdies4shriners.
