Rory McIlroy Win, a Boon for Jumeirah Hotels & Resorts

jum

Rory McIlroy's convincing win at the 111th U.S. Open at Congressional over the weekend made him, not a guy named Tiger, the talk of the golf world. The 22-year-old phenom will assuredly be contending for majors for years to come.

His win was also a boon for another: Jumeirah Hotels & Resorts, which tapped McIlroy as its brand ambassador when he first turned pro back in 2007.

Thatcher Brown, Jumeirah's vice president of brand strategy & management, sat down and discussed Jumeirah's prescient partnership with McIlroy and what it means for the brand, with sport360.com.
