Jim Furyk Endorses MedjetAssist

Medjet Announces Jim Furyk, 2010 “PGA Player of the Year,” as New National Spokesperson

Endorsement Partnership with the Premier U.S. Medical Evacuation Membership Program Will Span Entire Marketing Platform

BIRMINGHAM, AL, January 17, 2012 – MedjetAssist, the premier medical evacuation and repatriation membership program in the United States for savvy travelers and corporations, announced today that 16-time PGA Tour champion Jim Furyk will be the company’s national spokesperson for the next two years.

If a Medjet member becomes hospitalized while traveling more than 150 miles from home, the company will arrange medical transfer to the hospital of their choice.

Medjet boasts more than 50 worldwide affiliates, allowing members to travel with the peace of mind knowing that, should they need emergency medical care, help is only a phone call away.

Known for his consistent top-level play, Furyk won the 2003 U.S. Open, the 2010 FedEx Cup and was named 2010 PGA Tour Player of the Year.

As a well-traveled statesman, he has been a seven-time member of the Ryder Cup team as well as a seven-time member of the Presidents Cup team, the latter of which he helped clinch an American victory in November 2011.

“Becoming a member of MedjetAssist was a natural for me,” said Jim Furyk.

“As much time as I spend away from home, both on the Tour and with personal commitments, my Medjet membership takes away any worry about what would happen if I get sick or injured. Rest assured I always pack my Medjet card.”

"Jim Furyk is the consummate professional both on and off the golf course," said Roy Berger, president of MedjetAssist. "He is well respected in the golf world and represents the values of Medjet and our brand image. We are honored to have Jim as part of our team."

Under the endorsement partnership arrangement, Furyk's name and likeness will be used across MedjetAssist’s entire marketing platform beginning first quarter 2012. Print, radio, TV, internet, website, and collateral will feature the pro golfer and in some areas will also include his wife Tabitha.

In August 2011, the LPGA (Ladies Professional Golf Association) named MedjetAssist the “Official Medical Evacuation Program of the LPGA.”

As part of that agreement, MedjetAssist protects LPGA Tour players and staff.

MedjetAssist is the premier medical evacuation membership service in the country. If a member is hospitalized more than 150 miles from home and requires continued hospitalization, MedjetAssist will arrange medical transfer to the member's hospital of choice. MedjetAssist has its corporate headquarters in Birmingham, Alabama, and is the recognized provider of medical evacuation and repatriation services for AARP.
