Doosan has announced it will once again be an Official Patron of this week's British Open (known widely as The Open Championship), the oldest of the four major championships in professional golf.
The British Open is organized by The R&A, golf's governing body outside of the United States and Mexico, and is celebrating its 140th year. Doosan is one of five British Open Patrons, a group that includes Rolex, HSBC, Mercedes-Benz, and Nikon. Doosan is also the first company headquartered in Korea to support the tournament.
A global company, Doosan specializes in the infrastructure support business (ISB), which includes thermal and nuclear power generation, construction equipment, marine diesel engines, mechanical equipment and material handling equipment.
Geewon Park, COO of Doosan's holding company, Doosan Corp., said, "We're very proud to be once again sponsoring The Open Championship, and we are honored to be able to attach the Doosan name to such a prestigious and world-famous event."
