Why we truly love golf

Golf is a game of risk management and resilience. That resonates in our business. In fact, that resonates for a lot of the businesses we insure. That’s why we are a proud supporter of the PGA TOUR. We became the title sponsor of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans in 2005, the year of Hurricane Katrina. In 2006, the Zurich Classic became the first major sporting event to return to New Orleans after the storm. That’s teamwork, determination and agility at work. In short, that’s resilience.

See who wants to win most. Watch the interviews.

Zurich’s Golf Ambassadors love golf so much, they can’t help wanting to be the best. Watch the interviews to find out who has the ultimate passion for the game.

Another side of the scorecard

The Zurich Classic of New Orleans generates an estimated $40 million annually in economic activity, which has helped in rebuilding and resilience efforts post-Katrina. Since 2005, the Zurich Classic also has contributed more than $18 million to over 200 charities.

 

A different spin

Just as we strive to innovate for our customers, the Zurich Classic differentiates with a two-man team format, featuring two rounds each of Foursome and Four-Ball competition. The Zurich Classic is the only FedExCup team event on the PGA TOUR.
