Former PGA champion Beem joins fellow golfers Colin Montgomerie, Darren Clarke, Cristie Kerr and Iona Stephen as golf ambassadors for Loch Lomond Whiskies.
Texan Beem is perhaps best known for beating Tiger Woods by one shot to wine the 2002 PGA Championship. He joined Sky Sports as a commentator and golf analyst in 2015.
Beem will host a live Q&A with fellow professional golfer and Loch Lomond Whiskies ambassador Clarke, called At Home with Darren Clarke. It will take place during what would have been the week of the 149th Open golf tournament (12-19 July 2020).
Beem has also created a cocktail recipe for the brand, called the Beemer, which is made with Loch Lomond 12-year-old single malt.
He said: “It’s a great shame that the 149th Open has been cancelled for 2020, but I’m pleased to be working with Loch Lomond Whiskies to bring some entertainment to golf fans during this tough time. Hopefully it won’t be long before we can all enjoy a wee dram together.”
